    PRINCIPAL'S POST

    What a wonderful week on campus, our students are quickly adjusting back into the normal routines of school and it is so great to see. As we continue to navigate guidelines from ODE and OHA, we want to make sure to share the most up to date information we have with you, see below:

     

    • We are requiring all students to wear masks properly (covering their nose) when they are not actively eating or drinking. If a student is actively eating or drinking we are fine with them not wearing a mask. When we have a student who continues to not wear their mask properly, the staff member gives them a reminder. If the student continues to not wear the mask correctly they meet with Mr. Rosenau to make sure they understand how to wear the mask, that they have masks that fit properly, etc. If the student continues, after multiple warnings and meetings with student/parents, to not wear a mask they will be placed in an alternative learning environment.
    • We will strongly encourage students to have lunch outside. We will be moving cafeteria tables to the front patios by the cafeteria and encouraging students move outside while the weather is still so nice. If you choose to remain inside you will be asked to space 6 feet apart to the extent possible.
    • Back to School Night: A change in plan for this. Back to School Night will be deferred until October 20. We will send more information on this as soon as we have it. We are hoping that health guidelines will loosen up after October 1st and we would have the opportunity for an in-person Back to School Night. If the guidelines remain, we will hold it as virtual. More to come on this as we know more.
    • Our Homecoming Dance is currently postponed, please watch for updated information in the coming weeks.
    • ASB and Club activities will need to be reviewed for safety compliance.
    • All after-school activities will need to be reviewed for safety compliance.

    ATTENDANCE INFORMATION

    Hello Laker Families,

    To ensure the accuracy and efficiency of our attendance process, please remember the following guidelines:

     

    • To report an absence, call our attendance line at (503) 534-2329 or email lohattendance@loswego.k12.or.us. Written notes presented by students will not be accepted.
    • Please report an absence as soon as possible and no later than 72 hours after the absence.
    • If your student needs to leave class for an appointment, inform the attendance office as soon as possible. This will help us ensure that your student receives a note to leave class in a timely manner.

    Remember that attendance matters and students who attend class regularly are more likely to stay on track, graduate on time, learn deeply, and get the most from their high school experience. Please partner with us to ensure great attendance and to remove any attendance barriers.

     

     
    Parking Update for the Junior Lottery
     

    PARKING UPDATE FOR THE JUNIOR LOTTERY

    We are working as QUICKLY as we can to add additional parking at Uplands Elementary to allow for our 11th graders to "lottery" for a space. Unfortunately, the paint that is used for striping parking lots is on backorder and won't be available until early October.

    As soon as the parking is ready to go, we will notify students who have been randomly selected for a space. Our apologies that this is taking longer than anticipated.
