Dear Students and Parents,
The start of school is just around the corner and we want to take this opportunity to welcome you to the Remote Learning Program! School begins this year on Monday, August 16th. We will begin each day at 8:00 a.m. and normally end at 3:00 p.m. NOTE: The first three days of school, August 16th, 17th and 18th, will follow the early release schedule.
PLEASE SEE THE MEMO INCLUDED IN THIS MAILING TITLED, “Remote Learning Program Parents/Guardians – Memo regarding Online Registration and Chromebook Information for 2021-2022” for more information prior to Open House.
Again this summer, parents and guardians will verify their child(ren)’s enrollment information through the online parent portal, ParentVUE. This annual process was formerly completed on a paper census form, which parents/guardians had to review, update and return to the office.
The goal of the Remote Learning Program is to provide an alternative educational experience for students and families as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. Although the Remote Learning Program is conducted in a virtual environment, students will stay on track with their peers and receive instruction from certified LPS teachers. In order for this program to be successful, there are some general guidelines and expectations that must be followed by all students and families. Failure to comply with the below expectations may result in a meeting at the Remote Learning Program main office and a potential reassignment to in-person learning.
Students in the Remote Learning Program will be responsible for following the LPS Dress Code policy.
While attending class via zoom, students are to have their cell phones stored in a location that will not be a distraction to them.
PLEASE SEE THE MEMO INCLUDED IN THIS MAILING TITLED, “Remote Learning Program Parents/Guardians – Memo regarding Online Registration and Chromebook Information for 2021-2022” for more information. It is VERY important that parent/guardian(s) attend Readiness Days on August 2nd in order to distribute devices and sign any necessary paperwork! All students and families will have the option for enrollment in the Chromebook Assurance Program.
Be sure to give us a call at 402-436-1412 if you have any questions or need assistance! Our office hours are 7:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday-Friday.
We are looking forward to a great year!
