From the Principal’s Corner…
Thank you LPA families for welcoming me into your Raider family. Also, a huge shout-out for everybody living by these three words (Patience, Flexibility, and Grace) as we go through these unprecedented times. We were so blessed to be in person as long as we did. This allowed our students, teachers, and community to be able to connect and build the relationships we so missed last spring when the pandemic started.
Unfortunately, we will need to start distancing learning starting Monday, November 2nd through Friday, November 13th with the hopes we could come back to in-person starting Monday, November 16th. This decision was made with our number one priority, the safety of your students and staff. Another change that was sent out last week is that the high school will be designating Wednesdays as “Distance Learning Days” and students will not be physically at school, but required to be online using a shortened schedule for their classes. This will help allow a balance for our teachers to teach/connect with our in-person students in the morning and our distance learners in the afternoon. The dates that have been designated as Wednesday “Distance Learning Days” are November 18th and 25th, December 2nd, 9th, 16th, and 23rd. The administration and school board will then re-evaluate this learning model before Christmas break and more information will be sent out if any changes will occur.
It’s hard to believe that the end of the mid-term is only a week away! The mid-term comes to an end this Friday, November 6th. Please help or encourage your daughter/son to finish the mid-term strong. If your student is struggling with a class do keep in mind, we encourage and welcome you to contact your student’s teachers at any time to keep updated on progress. You may contact teachers by telephone or send an email. Staff email addresses are the initial of their first name followed by their last name @lpa.k12.mn.us. Staff email addresses are also available on our school website. Study Time is available for all students in the Media Center Monday through Friday from 7:30 – 8:15 a.m. and 3:15 – 4:00 p.m. All students are encouraged to attend. A licensed teacher is supervising to assist students if they need help.
Parent-teacher conferences are scheduled for Tuesday, November 10th, and Thursday, November 12th. With safety in mind, our Parent-teacher will be through a zoom meeting. Please pay attention to our School web page for details on how to sign-up.
In an attempt to improve accuracy in attendance documentation, parents are encouraged to email Attendance@lpa.k12.mn.us or call 218-325-0754 extension 0010. Leave the student’s name, grade, parent’s name, and reason for the student being absent. If you know ahead of time that your student will be absent it is expected that you contact the email or number listed prior to the absence. Otherwise, email/call as soon as you are able. Jim will be checking this email for messages, or you can call Jim in the high school office.
