LFPA Families,

I want to thank all of you for your continued support of LFPA as we move forward this year. Our success in keeping our students and families safe has been due, in large part, to your dedication at home. We have had no community spread at the school and we believe this is due to parents willingness to keep students home when sick and notify us of positive COVID-19 cases so that we can take appropriate precautions at school. If we continue to be vigilant, we believe we can safely continue to have students on site, in classrooms, and with teachers.

As we reopen for onsite instruction on Tuesday, January 19, I would ask that you keep this foundation for success in mind. Please keep students home if they are ill and notify us immediately of any positive COVID tests for students who have been on campus. Students on campus will continue to be required to wear masks at all times unless they are outside and appropriately distanced. I have included a copy of our Mitigation Plan for your reference.

We will maintain our policy of moving to remote learning if we have a total student count of 1.5% COVID positivity. I firmly believe that we have been successful at LFPA because students want to be in school and choices have been made that allow us to keep students in school. Again, our administration and staff truly thank you for this.

We also understand the concern of parents who do not feel comfortable sending students to school during this time. Unfortunately, we are not able to simultaneously continue remote learning. We have reconfigured Edgenuity to allow for transfer back into the classroom for second semester. So, if you would like to move to Edgenuity for online instruction, please let Mr. Rehm know and he will make the switch. Please understand, however, that you will be committing to online instruction until at least 4th quarter.

Please stay safe. We look forward to seeing everyone back on campus.

 If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me and I will respond as soon as possible.
Thank you,
Robert Villa
