Gov. Ducey and Superintendent Hoffman released a joint statement:
“In alignment with yesterday’s updated federal guidance, today we are announcing the extension of school closures through the remainder of the school year. Today’s announcement is intended to give parents and educators as much certainty as possible so they can plan and make decisions. While this isn’t the outcome any of us wanted, we are grateful for the partnership of schools around the state who have stepped up to offer virtual and take-home learning opportunities for our students. These efforts are crucial, and we recognize that schools are making every effort possible to continue providing instruction during closures”.
During the school closures Learning Foundation teachers and administrators are making every effort to provide our students with continuing instruction.
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.
Dear LFPA Families:
We plan to start the 2020-2021 school year with exciting continuous improvement to our existing programs as well as new programs:
STEM Programs for all grade levels that include a makerspace, robotics and project based learning.
New Science curriculum that will align and teach the Next Generation Science Standards.
New Math curriculum that supports our STEM implementation and allows our school to become STEM accredited in 2020-2021.
New Playground equipment installed on the West side of the school.
A before and after school care program is available.
We look forward to working with all of our stakeholders throughout the year and we are thankful for the support and assistance that provides a positive and productive educational experience for the children.
Learning Foundation and Performing Arts Warner is devoted to becoming a leader in education through scholarly learning and performing arts that embrace the whole student. To accomplish this vision, the mission of LFPA is to provide a well-rounded, rigorous academic and performing arts environment with high standards that prepare students to become lifelong learners.
Our staff is involved in a continuous school improvement plan with goals that are designed to improve learning for all students. We have created a phenomenal leadership model that incorporates the “7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Dr. Stephen Covey. This model also promotes learning for our students and enhances our learning environment.
Parents, we ask you to please encourage your students to engage in reading activities whenever possible. Even the reading of fun books and special interest magazines will help your student to refine his/her skills in this pivotal area. Regular reading at all grade levels will stimulate higher-level thinking skills and provide a positive foundation for learning.
Our front office is currently open throughout the week from 10:00 to 2:00 in order to serve our families. If you have questions and need to speak with front office staff, the principal or any staff member please call or stop by any time Monday to Thursday. If you would like to meet with the Principal or any Staff members, please call to set up an appointment.
