LFPA Families,

A heartfelt thank you goes out from administration and staff for your support as we continue to strive to provide the best and safest learning environment for our students. We are all encouraged by the metrics regarding the health of our community and the positive direction the data seems to be trending towards. For this reason, we have set a time for return of students to in-person classes. Our intention is to utilize the recommended hybrid model for the two weeks prior to Fall Break, 9/21/2020 – 10/2/2020 and resume a full in-person schedule after the Fall Break on October 13.

In the event of a community health setback we will extend the time utilizing the hybrid model or in an extreme circumstance return to remote learning.

The hybrid model will rely on a combination of in-person instruction and remote learning. We will only have half of our student body report for in-person classes at a time in order to establish procedures and safety protocols. Students with last names beginning with A-L will report to school on Monday & Tuesday while students with last names beginning with M-Z report on Wednesday & Thursday. We will also be grouping siblings and shared households with one another so they will attend the same days of the week. Students working remotely will be expected to work on independent work or participate with the in-person classes through Google Meets.

2020-21 October In-Person Calendar

Please review the attached letter that provides more details regarding the hybrid model. We look forward to seeing all of our students in person and begin our journey towards normalcy. Families who need to purchase uniforms may do so M-Th between 8:00am-4:00pm.

Thank you,

Robert Villa
Principal
Learning Foundation & Performing Arts
