LFPA Families,
Thank you all for your positive feedback and kind offers to help in various capacities. We are so grateful to have such caring families, and it demonstrates how supportive people can be in such challenging times.

We offer sincerest appreciation for the patience and persistence demonstrated by the families and faculty of our school during these difficult times.  The district and school offices will continue to be open throughout the summer months.  The 2020-2021 school year begins August 6th and we look forward to welcoming former and new students for an exciting new year.

The health and well-being of our students and staff continues to be a top priority.  There have been no known cases of COVID-19 in our schools, but we will continue to pro-actively plan for all possible scenarios while our teachers are working to help students and parents with continued learning.

We are monitoring the Coronavirus, COVID19, situation and will continue to work directly with state and local public health officials to stay updated regarding health advisories and to take all cautionary measures. We ensure our parents and students that all Learning Foundation schools will be completely sanitized when school resumes and in addition to our existing health and safety protocols, we will implement the following procedures:

  • Ensure that students and staff who are ill, especially with respiratory symptoms, stay at home

  • Ensure routine cleaning and disinfecting is happening in all areas of the building even after the schools have been sanitized.

  • Ensure that hand sanitizer, soap, paper towels, and facial tissues are widely available in school facilities

  • Remind students and staff to cover their coughs and sneezes with a facial tissue or elbow (not in hands)

  • Place signage and reminders for personal hygiene throughout the school for students and staff

Additional Health Tips:  

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

  • Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Stay home when you are sick.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash and clean your hands.

Thank you for your cooperation, patience, and understanding during this unprecedented time.
