Hello Lemon Avenue Families! I hope your family was able to spend quality time together during Spring Break.
Below you will find links to the two letters previously sent out during Spring Break. The first provides details on our Welcome Back to Campus events, taking place the weeks of April 5 and April 12.
The second letter, originally emailed last week and posted on Dojo, provides preliminary details regarding our new reopening plan for four full days of in person instruction. This letter includes information for ESS childcare. Once the staff and I return to campus this week, we will meet to finalize details that will be then shared with you.
Teachers will continue to provide core instruction to students both in the classroom and at home in the morning, and will work with students on campus in the afternoon while those who remain at home will complete asynchronous, or independent, work. Families who elect to continue online only instruction will maintain a schedule similar to what they have now. Students who are returning to campus will come for the full school day, 8:00-2:20, rather than just afternoons, and will attend four full days per week, Tuesday - Friday. There is no longer an option for only afternoons or two days per week. Mondays will remain fully virtual to allow the classroom communities to connect together virtually, and to ensure appropriate planning and preparation time for teachers who will be teaching both in person and online through the remainder of the school year. Students will receive three hours of virtual instruction on Mondays.
I encourage you to re-read both letters, as I know the changing information can be confusing. We are planning as we go with this uncharted territory, as this school year is unlike any that staff or families have experienced. As always, we thank you for your patience, grace and unwavering support.
Finally, we still have not received the prizes and lists from Boosterthon from the Lemon Avenue Fun Run: Dance Edition. Once we have, and items are ready to be picked up in the office, I will post a message on Class Dojo.
Have a super evening. It’s a great year to be a Lemon Leopard!
