The most important piece of information today is to let you know that after listening to families, staff and community members, the Board has voted to go to 100% Distance Learning after the Thanksgiving week holiday. We are doing this in cooperation with Dr. Teresa Francovich’s strong recommendation that was sent to all schools last week requesting two weeks of a “pause” (or quarantine) after each holiday due to the dangers of Covid transmission caused by travel exposure from our populations. Our 100% DL will continue through the Winter holiday, two weeks beyond that for another quarantine period with in-person school resuming using our hybrid method on Tuesday January 19th after the Martin Luther King Holiday.

Happy Holidays!!! It is amazing how quickly time has flown! We are about to welcome another new year! I believe I am not alone in saying goodbye to 2020 will be a blessing! The hope and renewal that comes in a new year is to be embraced and cherished! 2020 has been difficult but with the coming of the vaccines and our being prepared for in person learning or Distance Learning, we face the challenges of 2021 equipped and ready to bring a first rate education to all of our students!

We are looking forward to all the good things the new year will bring and thank you for the honor of educating your precious students!

Thank you for giving us this extra day to enrich ourselves and better what we do for our students!

Our systems are working to maintain staff contact, feed our students and get students online access. The Loleta Church has had four volunteers come in to help us with my “outlier” delivery.

It is time for “Read Across America!” Formally known as Doctor Suess Day, we now recognize and celebrate reading for all! Ms Cindy is serving “Green Eggs and Ham” for breakfast and “Cat in the Hat” parfaits to celebrate. Classes will be reading books aloud in class on Monday March 2. This month we have Belonging Circles, St. Patrick’s Day and parent/teacher conferences! Conferences will be scheduled beginning Monday March 16! Come celebrate your student’s growth!
Happy February! February is kindness month here in Loleta! Thank you all for your support of the school and our belief in creating a community where everyone belongs! It begins with a foundation of social and emotional skills, a recognition of the effects of being mean, basic skills in managing anger and other strong emotions and in practicing kindness. We will be focusing on sharing and practicing these skills with one another this month. To teach your children how to self-regulate, help them make great decisions with each other and with studying their academics, we now have our “Sensory Room.” In this room students are learning exercises, strategies, activities and ways of thinking; that help them control their emotions and which aid them in making better choices with staff support and instruction. The word has spread how powerful this is and we now have other districts visiting our school to “check it out!”
