LFPA Families,

Your support for your students and our school is greatly appreciated as we strive to provide the best and safest learning environment while we continue to watch the metrics regarding the health of our community.

Below you will find the data released by Maricopa County on Thursday, December 17th. Unfortunately, all three indicators continue to rise and have moved into the red category. Based on these indicators we will continue with the current learning program when school resumes on Tuesday, January 5, 2021.

COVIDDashboard12-17-20

We will continue to monitor the data and keep parents informed as we watch and hope for decreases in the indicators . We are also anticipating some guidance from state officials.

We will continue to do our best to provide a safe environment for students and staff by following all protocols set forth by our District Office and the Maricopa County Health Department.

Please open the links below for more information on safety protocols. We look forward to a new year that brings health and well being as we hope to return to in-person learning.
