Remote Learning Starts Monday, 3/23

March 21st, 2020

Dear Students and Families,

In an effort to protect our community’s health from COVID-19, school buildings are closed until April 20th so that we can practice social distancing. We all need to stay home and wash our hands frequently!!

All classes will resume online in a remote learning environment on Monday 3/23. Classes are still in session, even though we are not meeting in our school building. Virtual attendance will be taken. This will allow you to get your credits at the end of the semester.

How do online classes work?
All of your class material is available here, on our LESP Remote Learning site. Please click on your teachers name to get access to your classroom. In order to communicate with all of your teachers, counselors, and administration, you must log into your PupilPath. Just like in regular classes, you will receive a grade every week for each course.
