LCIS SNSO 4-12-20
Hello LCIS Families,
We hope that all of you are healthy and safe and have been able to get outside and enjoy some spring sunshine! We are all patiently awaiting the time when we can see each other again. Thank you so much for being the frontrunner of your child’s education at a time when we are not able to meet in the regular way. We are looking forward to starting our Google classrooms next week so that we are able to interact more often with our students,
This Monday, April 13, from 8 am – 4 pm we plan to distribute the next two weeks worth of paper packets at LCIS for students in K-6. For grades 3-6 the paper packet will match the learning opportunities provided online. Distribution of packets will take place in our “new normal” way by having staff members bring you the packets while you remain in your car. If your child is engaged with learning online, you will not need to pick up a paper packet, although you may pick it up if you’d like.
For LCIS students who are in need of a device, we would like to offer the use of a Chromebook for the remaining time that we are out of school. You may request a Chromebook during the paper packet pickup time on Monday, April 13, from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. The use of technology for distant learning, like a paper learning packet, is optional and not required. The assignments completed will not be graded. However, by completing assignments and tasks online, your child will have more opportunities to engage with his/her teacher as the teacher will be able to give feedback and support to each student in their learning. These Chromebooks are only available for LCIS students in grades 3-6. Each Chromebook will be released only to the parent or guardian so that they may sign The Chromebook Use Agreement. If you have any problems with your chromebook, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you may remember from previous communication from the District, we have determined that for now we will hold students’ belongings at our school until there is a better time for a safe pick up. If you or your student have an essential item that you need to pick up for a learning or health reason please call the front office and leave a message and we will get back in touch with you.
Other things that may be on your mind regarding school items may include yearbooks, spring photos, collecting student artwork and returning borrowed school instruments. The yearbook order has been submitted to the publisher and we are waiting to hear about a completion date. We are still waiting for the spring photos to arrive. Once we receive the yearbooks and the spring photos we will plan to hand those out at an upcoming packet pickup day. Student artwork will be collected and sorted by grade level and will be passed out to students when we return to school. We are glad that band students are still practicing music on their instruments and we are anticipating designing a system where we can collect borrowed school instruments at the end of the school year. Thanks for your patience as we work through some of these unknowns.
As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher or call our front office for any additional support. Lake County Build a Generation has also provided a form you can fill out if you are seeking volunteer opportunities or additional support. You can find these on their website at http://lcbag.org/
