Mr. Eric Wetzel, Assistant Principal
December 1, 2020 Update
Dear LAHS Students and Families,
While it was a very different experience from most years, I hope you all had a safe and restful Thanksgiving. As we head into our second week of remote schooling, please note that the technology issues can be addressed today at the middle school.
Tuesday, December 1, 2020 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.
If students have arranged to pick up materials with their teachers, they may stop by between 8 and 3:00 each day.
All students who are normally in-person are expected to log on and participate in their class zoom meetings. This includes completing any break-out room activities and assignments. Students who are not attending will be marked as absent. Thank you to those of you who have been keeping us aware of appointments, illnesses, or other factors that may take place during the instructional schedule. The school attendance line is 570-522-3285. We also thank you for letting us know the status of quarantining and/or positive cases within your household. Our nurse, Mary Maneval, can be reached at email@example.com or by phone at 570-522-1005.
On Wednesday 12/2, we are following the half-day schedule posted here (PDF). Our intention is to follow this for any Wednesday that we are in remote. If your child is in another building, they will also be half-day but may have a different schedule. Please check in with that building or your child’s teacher.
Athletic practices are taking place this week. All athletes and coaches are required to wear masks (except swimmers when they are in the pool) during the practices. The only exceptions to this are those who have a signed medical exemption from a physician for a health-related reason. Similarly, those students who are participating in this year’s musical have been receiving information about their rehearsals this week.
SAT’s are still scheduled for December 5th with extra mitigation strategies and safety precautions. Please be aware that this could change based on any future decisions by the College Board, DOH, or PDE.
Finally, I would like to give a shout-out to Mrs. Debbie Wheeland who begins her retirement after twenty-one years in the District. She has served our students, families, and staff so well over the years and will be greatly missed. We send our best wishes out to her on a long and happy retirement.
Green and White Forever,
Paula J. Reber
