Pick Up/Drop Off Your Stuff!

June 13th, 2020

Dear Students,

Book an appointment here to pick up or drop off stuff at LESP.

Seniors: June 17/18 (Wed/Thur)
Return your textbooks and technology, pick up your senior package and stuff from your locker!

Everyone Else: June 22/23 (Mon/Tues)
Return your textbooks and pick up stuff from your locker. We will most likely be remote in September, so if you need to keep your technology, please do so!

Please choose a 10 minute time slot and commit to it! 
To protect everyone’s health, there will be a maximum of 5 students near the building at a time.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19:
– Do not sign up if you or family members are experiencing or had any symptoms in the last week.
– Wear a mask at all times.
– Stand 6 feet apart in a line.
– Once you are done, please leave quickly!

Friends can pick up your stuff, just make sure you send an email to [email protected] notifying Principal Anaya that it is ok for them to pick up your stuff. Your locker contents may not be stored for September. Please come pick them up on the scheduled days.

Regards,
Ms. Pritchard, AP

Update for June 4 and June 9: Chancellor Days

June 1st, 2020

Dear Families,

Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility in response to this ever-evolving crisis. We are writing today to share some important updates and reminders about the end of year school calendar.

We have two days coming up in June that were originally scheduled as times when students would not be in attendance. However, with the ongoing pandemic, students will be expected to participate in remote learning on both of these days:

 Thursday, June 4 was originally scheduled as a non-attendance day for all students in observance of Brooklyn / Queens Day (also known as Anniversary Day).

 Tuesday, June 9 was originally scheduled as a non-attendance day for students in schools serving grades K-8, as well as District 75 schools and programs.

On June 4, all students are expected to complete work independently as staff will be engaged in professional development. Teachers are not expected to engage students on June 4; instead, schools will set students up in advance with independent work for the day.

On June 9, students who attend a school serving grades K-8, or who attend any District 75 school, are expected to complete work independently as staff will be engaged in reorganization work. Teachers in these schools are not expected to engage students on June 9; instead, schools will set students up in advance with independent work for the day.

If you have questions or concerns regarding the school schedule for your student, please contact your school for additional information.
As a reminder, June 26 is the last day of school and a half day for all students. We will issue additional guidance to families about the end of the 2019-20 school year in the coming weeks.

Thank you again for your partnership as we continually navigate unfamiliar terrain. I often say that we have the best students, staff, and families in the world. You and your children continue to prove that, every day. Together, we will continue to weather this storm.

Sincerely,
Richard A. Carranza
