August 2021

Dear Lackawanna Trail Community,

I hope everyone is enjoying the summer, and you are looking forward to the opening of school on August 26th.  As we move through August I would like to alert everyone to a few important upcoming dates and concepts.

On Monday August 9th our Regular Meeting of the Board of Education is scheduled for 7:30 PM.  The board will adopt revisions to our current Health and Safety Plan, as well as vote on many additional motions.  Board Meetings are still held virtually until further notice, and the Zoom link is always posted on the Board of Education web page.

On Monday August 16th the principals and I will conduct our second Virtual Town Hall for the opening of School at 7:00.  During the Virtual Town Hall my administrators and I will update everyone on our latest revisions to the Health and Safety Plan, outline new rules for virtual learners, and offer advice on what parents and students can do in preparation for the new academic year via a slide show.  Plenty of time will be allotted for questions and comments.  Transparency and communication are our top goals, so please mark your calendar and join us.

One critical area that can help us open school safely and remain open will likely depend on a large number of us getting fully vaccinated against COVID-19.  Although currently the vaccination is not available for students less than twelve years old, I encourage any student twelve and older to get vaccinated prior to the beginning of school.  There are many opportunities available, and I will continue to inform our community when local clinics are scheduled.

Enjoy the remainder of your well deserved summer break!
