Principal's Corner

Dear LISA Families,
 
I would like to thank you all for your commitment and strength during this challenging time.  So many of you are inspirations to me, and I appreciate you all.
 
I would like to give you some updates as we close in on the last month of school for 2019-2020.  In the words of the classic rock band, the Grateful Dead, "What a long, strange trip it's been."  
 
We are going to be providing incentives for students who keep working through their assigned work.  Among those are Amazon Gift Cards for Reading Bingo (students should consult their ELA Google Classrooms for details), goodie bags for being on task (nominations made by teachers and drawings held weekly), and a couple of larger items (chromebooks) for being on task (drawings to be held in a couple of weeks).
 
As we've discussed previously, the buildings are locked down, and we can only provide materials via curbside pick-up.  To streamline locker clean out, we have sent out a form.  I'm including a link to it here as well: Locker Clean Out Form.  You will need to fill out the form to sign up for your time.  The deadline for signing up is May 11th.    We will box up student belongings and, at the time you have selected, you can come to the front drive-up and we will bring you the locker contents to your car.  There are some very important things to note here.  If you do not fill out the Google Form by May 11th, then your student's locker contents will be discarded.  If your student doesn't remember their locker number, then just note that on the form, and we will look it up.  And, very importantly, there are only 10 spots for each designated time.  This is to help with social distancing requirements.  So, the sooner you fill out the form, the more options for times you will have.
 
All of these updates will also be posted in the teachers' Google Classrooms!
 
This week's virtual meetings with me will be today and Wednesday.  The ZOOM info is below:
 
Today: 5:30

Remember to check the website for updates.  The District updates information regularly. And please look out for the Weekly Newsletter for other information.  It comes out each Friday.  If you are not receiving the newsletter, please let me know.
 
Also, please remember that the phone numbers for me, Ms. Cullers, Ms. Miller, Ms. West, and Mr. Aziz are all located on the website under "contacts".  If you need to get in touch with us between 9 and 4, this is a great way to do that.
 
Again, here's to starting off another great week.  Keep strong and stay safe!
