LHSD to Continue Remote Learning thru Jan 15, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Remote Learning to Continue After Winter Break

1/4/2021 - 1/15/2021


Due to the unfortunate COVID-19 circumstances we are currently encountering and in an effort to establish and maintain the health, safety, and welfare of students and staff coupled with recent Governor/DOH orders, effective 1/4/2021 until 1/15/2021, the LHSD will temporarily continue with the current remote model of instruction for students. COVID-19 cases countywide continue to climb; to this end, the remote model of instruction will continue. At this juncture we plan to reopen for face-to-face learning on 1/19/2021; however, please continue to check our website (www.lhsd.org) for updates. Additionally, we have updated our website to include a multitude of parent/guardian guidance and resources effective in assisting your student to navigate the remote learning environment. If you experience challenges, please connect with your child’s teacher for help. We are dedicated to assuring your student’s success.


We are working diligently to resume face-to-face instruction on 1/19/21. We ask for your patience and support. I truly believe once we return to in-person learning, we can continue in that model until the end of the school year.


Below are remote learning expectations our staff should be implementing until our face-to-face return to instruction. If this framework is not being utilized, please reach out to the teacher and building principal if necessary:


Staff will do their best to mirror the face-to-face instructional day/schedule as closely as possible with a blend of both synchronous and asynchronous instruction.

-Our staff will be available online throughout their normal instructional day.

-Students are expected to participate and complete assignments by the due dates.

-Teachers will push out lessons through Google Classroom, Videos, Zoom meetings, etc.

-Students will use their Chromebook/laptop to complete assignments.

  • Students should log in to their homeroom daily

  • Teachers will use Google Classroom and student email to push out instructional assignments as well as other technology tools

  • Ninth period is available for support. Simply email your teacher and they will set up a Google meet or conference to help.

  • Teachers will use Google Classroom and/or Seesaw, and student email to push out instructional assignments as well as other technology tools
