Dear Lackawanna Trail Parents and Students,
Keeping Lackawanna Trail open for full in-person instruction as consistently and safely as possible is my goal, and I believe many of you share this as well.  There are a few areas I’d like to call your attention to, which can help us reach this goal:
  1. If you are eligible for the COVID-19 Vaccine, please consider getting it.  Vaccination is the most important mitigation strategy to slow the spread of COVID-19.
  2. When masking is mandatory, please wear it properly when inside the buildings.  When masking is optional, please consider wearing it in crowded areas, or when you are with people not normally in your social circle.  Masking is the second most important strategy to slow the spread of COVID-19.
  3. When you are sick don’t come to school, and get checked by your pediatrician or family physician. We still offer a live-stream virtual option for elementary and high school students.  Take advantage of it when necessary.
  4. Maintain physical/social distancing guidelines when possible.
  5. Wash you hands thoroughly and often, especially when you touch surfaces frequently touched by others.
The pandemic is still with us, so let’s not let our guard down too soon.  We can get though this together Lion Strong!  The 2020-2021 school year was successful despite some ups and downs, we can make 2021-2022 even better.
Thank you,
Matthew Rakauskas
