Community Connect Program This program is off and running!  Over 30 community members have been matched and are finding support in one another...it is never to late to sign up!   Introducing our Community Connect Program: Are you new to our community, or now find yourself with more time and want to grow your connections with other families in LCTA? Could you use a resource who has experience at the school or in the community to help answer your questions, bounce ideas about and help you navigate this remote learning and new normal we are all struggling to embrace. This program is designed to connect LCTA community members to one another to provide support and foster relationships. This program is an opportunity to encourage one another as we balance work, distance-learning, childcare, and self-care while keeping worries — both our children’s and our own — under control. This is a program guided by the PTA under the direction of Dr. Zissios and is an opportunity to form new friendships and strengthen the bonds in our community.

ACPS NEWS

Parent Pick up Schedule of Student Belongings - June 17th-19th We will be distributing all student belongings (left by students in their respective classrooms at the time school closed on March 13th) starting on June 17th and going through June 19th.  We will have parents come over the course of these three days based on the STUDENT'S LAST NAME.  To maintain strict guidelines for social distancing and limited access to the school, the belongings will be placed in plastic trash bags and delivered to the parent's car or placed on a table for the parent to pick up in front of the school.  We are also requesting the return of items belonging to the school.  Please bring back any library books, reading resource materials, classroom books, instruments and the like.  There will be yellow labeled collection bins in front of the school for these items  On your scheduled pick up day (SEE CHART BELOW), we ask that parents write the student(s) name(s), grade(s) and teacher's(s') name(s) on a large sheet of paper to place on the car's dashboard (if driving to the school) or to hold up for staff to see (if walking to LCTA) to facilitate the retrieval of the bags from inside the school.  If driving, please use the front of the school that is designated as our drop off/pick up area (immediately in front of the building).  If walking, please come to the front of the school and wait by the benches near the circle.  LCTA staff will be on hand to assist everyone.  Once your belongings are brought outside, they will be placed on a table in front of you.  You may then pick them up from the table.  If a driver wants the bag placed directly into the car's trunk, inform the LCTA staff member to do so once you open the trunk for them. We ask that you wear a mask and maintain a proper distance from staff when coming to the school.  Thank you.

Please be respectful and responsible and remember that I cannot admit a student into a Zoom meeting without proper identification ie "Awesome Me" is not someone I can admit. And as always these meetings are voluntary and not required. I love seeing everyone and I miss you all very much.
