Weekly Parent Newsletter: 8.30.20

Good Afternoon LMBMS Families,

I hope this message finds you well.  The first day of school is approaching fast, and we're super, super excited about seeing all of our students on time, September 8, 2020! Please see below this week's new announcements.

Student Schedules: This week, we mailed students' schedules to the address we have on file in our ASPEN student database.  Please be sure to check your mailbox for this information and see the welcome back letter I included, along with information about our planned back to school events, required vaccinations (see in English and Spanish), and accessing Google classroom (English or Spanish).  If, for some reason, you have not yet received your child's schedule, please contact the appropriate grade level counselor via email, and they will be able to assist you.  You may request a schedule change via email until September 2nd, and the counselor will email your revised schedule back to you.  Afterwards, all schedule changes will occur between September 11-18.

Fall Meal Distribution: This fall, students will have to provide their lunch code when picking up meals each morning (this is the same code they used before we closed). Without the code, the federal government won't reimburse RPS for the cost of the meals. If your child can't remember it, no problem. Later this week, we'll be mailing each family a letter containing your child’s code. For lots of other details about our fall meal distribution program, please go to the meal distribution section of the RPS website.
