WEEKLY UPDATE 5/15/2020

Happy Friday to our Families.  Thankfully today is a bright, warm and sunny day.  And on a positive note, we only have two Fridays of the school year left!  

There is information on packet drop off and personal belonging pick-up in this email so please read it in its entirety.

We have two more packet drop offs. 

Thank you so much for such a smooth delivery during our first drop off.  Directions were followed very well and we truly appreciate that.   The specifics for the last two drop offs are below:

  1. Drop of for days 21-40 will be on May 19, 20, 22 from 8am to 3pm. On Thursday, May 21, drop off will be from 8am to 8pm.  This packet covers up until May 18.
  2. The final drop off will ONLY be available on June 4for days 41-52 from 8am to 10pm.  The final day of school work will be finished on June 3.  These packets start on May 19.

 I will send reminders closer to the dates.  Please place these dates in your calendar.  

Just like last time, please have the packets organized and place it in your grade level box in the offices.  Grades Pre-K through 5 will drop off in the elementary lobby and grades 6-12 will drop off in the high school lobby.  If you have multiple teachers, please have the packets labeled with your name and the teachers name so we know who to give it to.  And, please be mindful of social distancing and masks.

Now that we are in the yellow zone, we are comfortable opening up the buildings for students to pick up their personal belongings.  

The secondary plan is as follows.  Please note the dates and times:

Leechburg Middle/High School

Locker Clean Out/Book and Materials Return

 

-Dates:  May 21, May 22, June 4, June 5

-Time:  8:00-2:30

 

-We chose these dates because they coincide with student work drop off.  Choose 1 date that works for you.  Make sure to clean out your locker completely, and take all personal items home.  Please return all school property to the stage in the auditorium: this includes textbooks, athletic uniforms, or anything else you have that belongs to the school.  No more than 5 students at a time are permitted in the auditorium.  If you are still using your textbooks for your last few days of work do not come until the June 4th or 5th days.

 

-Procedures:

            -Masks must be worn at all times while in the building.  No student will be permitted in the building without a mask.

            -Limit the time in the building to only 15 minutes.

            -Enter and exit the building through the Main Office Doors.  Depending on the number of students currently in the building you may be asked to wait a few minutes.                 Please be patient.

            -Please email Mr. Rodgers with any questions drodgers@leechburg.k12.pa.us

 

The elementary plan will be emailed out next week.  It will be more detailed because students need to get into classrooms.  


I met with top educational officials this week to try to get more information on the start of next school year.  The meetings did not give me any more information than what we knew a month ago.  As soon as I get any details, I will share it with you.  But, as I have said from the beginning, you may know before I do.  For now, lets celebrate the closing of the 19-20 school year. 

 

Finally, the weather is getting warmer and the work is getting harder.  Please remember that we are asking you to try your best.  End of year assessments are to evaluate where students are academically for planning for the start of next year.  As always, you will earn a 100% or a 60%.  Email your teachers directly with questions, concerns, comments, frustrations, praise, etc.  We are following guidelines that are expected of us from educational and governmental officials.  We are all exhausted with this and are counting down the days until June 4.  Stick with us.  There is a light at the end of our tunnel.  Only 12 days to go!

Have a great and safe weekend.
