On Thursday, we welcomed many of our students in grades K-2 back to campus. Today saw the return of many in 3rd and 4th grade. It was a bittersweet experience for many of us. We are thrilled to hear young voices in the building, yet we long for the day when our entire community can be together again.
A photographer from nola.com (Chris Granger) captured scenes from our first day. You may wish to view them here. There also is an article (available here) about Lusher and schools throughout Orleans Parish that are gradually reopening their buildings to students.
Whether you have elected for in-person learning or are continuing with distance learning, please know that our teachers are working harder than ever before. They are giving their all to provide the excellent education you have come to expect from Lusher, while also ensuring the social-emotional health of all students.
Thank you so much for the patience and support you have demonstrated throughout this experience with us. We all look forward to our first in-person Morning Meeting, when we can celebrate the successful completion of this journey together.
In resilience, Jan Rice
