LES Elementary August 21, 2020

A Note from the Principal...

I will be sending a short newsletter out almost weekly to try to keep you as updated as possible. It seems through the course of the week, there is information that needs to be sent out to keep you as informed as we can. Again, thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through the school year.

Important Information


This is a friendly reminder that we are not allowed to have anyone in the building due to COVID-19 unless it has been approved by administration. You may enter the lobby to sign-in/sign-out your child or to drop off or pick up

COVID-19 Information

As we are wrapping up the second week of school, I wanted to clarify a few things that some may have questions about related to COVID-19.

  • If a person in your child's classroom tests positive, you will be notified by the school nurse if your child was in close contact and needs to be quarantined. Once those students/families have been contacted, we will send a notification via email of a positive case in the classroom.
  • There are going to be times that students and staff members will be quarantined due to direct contact of a positive case or direct contact with someone with symptoms. If this is the case, you will not be notified unless needed.
  • If your child is home sick with multiple symptoms, it is important for you to contact the school and keep your other children in the household at home until you receive further direction from the school nurse.
