NO SCHOOL FOR STUDENTS - ALL STAFF return from Winter Break
Monday, January 3, 2022 there will be no school for students All staff will report to work. LMSD will provide transportation to non-public schools. This change will enable LMSD to: * Assess our ability to staff schools and decide which schools, if any, may need to go virtual based on safety/supervision needs, taking into account staff (and potential substitutes) who are currently in isolation/quarantine or who may need to do so. * Conduct strategic testing of staff. * Update all nursing staff regarding the new reporting, quarantine/isolation guidelines and their role in managing the increased volume of questions and contact-tracing due to the current surge. * Confirm whether LMSD will have an adequate supply of COVID tests from MCOPH and enough certified test administrators to conduct testing in accordance with the updated guidance going forward. * Allow educators to prepare for the anticipated increase in numbers of students participating virtually in the coming weeks.
