TK, K, 1st, 2nd Grade Parent Survey** URGENT

Lennox School District is exploring options for bringing back students to campus when possible and when permitted by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LADPH). We submitted our application to the health department for a waiver that would allow some TK-2 students at our school to return to campus for in-person learning in small cohorts and for limited amounts of time and are happy to report that our waiver has been approved. We are also looking into offering in-person instruction to some students in other grades with specialized learning needs.

We will continue to monitor the Covid-19 data and the state and health department mandates. We will only reopen if it is safe, for students, staff and community. In the best case scenario, we anticipate to reopen for TK-2 with limited capacity in February 2021.

Families will have an option for either in-person learning or staying on a distance learning model. Please click on the link below by Friday, December 11, 2020 to tell us what your plans are for your TK-2nd grade student for the remainder of the school year. Please note that if you have multiple TK-2nd grade students, we ask that you complete one survey per child.

LA Clippers Read to Achieve Minutes Challenge Website

Parents/guardians can register their student(s) on the site and can easily track the minutes read throughout the 6-week program. On the site they will register under the school name, so that we can keep track of the total minutes read from your school at the end of the program and so every student’s minutes will count!

A Thank you from our Parents to Our Cafeteria Staff!

To whom it concerns:

Hi, we are a group of moms who have kids in various schools of the Lennox school district (Bufford, Jefferson, Moffett, LMS, and LMSTA). We want to thank all the district personnel for their support since the beginning of this pandemic, but speaking amongst ourselves we believe that there has been a group who has not been recognized, and in our opinion it is the group that is the most exposed to contagion, Our cafeteria personnel. They have served our children food uninterruptedly since the beginning of this pandemic, always with their smiles and on occasion with music and a little bit of dance, which always makes our day. Some of us have family members and other school districts, and they tell us that those who serve the food are not the cafeteria personnel. They note that the cafeteria ladies only prepare the food and those who are in charge of distributing these are the administrative or supervisory personnel.

We believe that this would be a great opportunity so that the cafeteria personnel would be able to take a break. Another thing we noticed and we want to highlight is that since the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year, once multiple schools started to open, only Jefferson has been consistently serving hot food which is the food our kids most love. At the other schools, only on occasion do we have hot food. We get cold food and another thing our kids love are fresh vegetables that come on the day they get chow mein, teriyaki, orange chicken and we don’t remember what other food, but we wanted to say thank you very much for taking the time in preparing these sautéed vegetables. We would like them to know that we are very grateful for their hard work and the love that they put into their preparation. We sometimes take banners thanking them, but we believe that it would be very nice if they were publicly thanked/recognized.
