LCIS SNSO 10/4/20
Hello LCIS Families,
Beginning on October 12 all LCIS students will be able to come to school Monday through Thursday thanks to our new hybrid LCIS/Project Dream partnership!
Beginning October 12 all “in person” students will attend school at LCIS Monday through Thursday using a half-day model approach. Students will remain with their current cohort and spend half of the day with their classroom teacher receiving academic instruction and spend the other half of the day engaged with enrichment programming provided by Project Dream. The enrichment programming will include “homework help” every day so that students have time to complete their assignments. Cohorts will not be mixing and every cohort has their own space in the building. We will continue to utilize outside space as much as possible and continue to practice social distancing procedures including wearing face coverings, hand washing and staying 3-6 feet apart.
Teachers have already begun talking with the students about this exciting shift in how we will be offering school at LCIS for the rest of this semester. Based on the questions they have been asking, we believe that you also may have many other questions. It is extremely important to us that you have the information you need. Please call the LCIS office with questions As always, you are welcome to reach out to Cheryl Talbot, principal of LCIS, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 719-486-6830 with your questions.
We truly hope that you are as excited about this new opportunity as we are and that we will see your student all day, every day Monday through Thursday beginning on October 12.
Tomorrow, an “A” day, we will have our annual evacuation drill to the Lutheran Church on 8th St. On Thursday, October 8th, we will practice evacuation with the “B” day students. Practicing these drills is essential for the safety of our students and staff. Thank you for helping to reiterate the importance of safety drills with your child. There is a letter attached to this e-mail with more detailed information.
Ms. Kortkamp enjoys reading Shel Silverstein’s “A Light in the Attic” to students! She has several of his poems memorized!
When the light turns green, you go. When the light turns red, you stop. But what do you do when the light turns blue with orange and lavender spots? – A Light In The Attic by Shel Silverstein
