We are well into our second week of school and things are going very well. Our students have been diligent in their mask wearing as well as bringing in their ASK, ASK, LOOK forms daily. Thanks parents, for all of your reinforcement at home with both of these items.
Here are a few announcements for the week:
Open House/Curriculum Night:
This will be held virtually on September 20th starting at 6:00 with each homeroom teacher. We will have a brief meeting starting at 5:30 to kick off the evening with administration and other special guests. We look forward to seeing you. Links are forthcoming.
Our PTO meeting for new families will be held Wednesday, 9/15. This will take place on the LT Field at 6 p.m. A calendar of events will be sent home in backpacks early next week.
On Monday, we will be staggering our dismissal of grade 1-5 students outside to the front starting at 3:15. Each grade level will have a sign and assigned section to stand in outdoors. Please do not crowd the front doors so that we can allow our classes enough space to exit safely. Also, please make sure all students are picked up by 3:30 daily.
Outdoor Play Spaces:
For safety, please do not plan to stay at Ludlow to play on our grounds after dismissal. We have close to 150 students in our after school program and they utilize our outdoor spaces. Please pass this message on to nannies and neighbors. After school ends at 6 p.m.
We were able to test about 35 students today in asymptomatic testing and await results this evening. No positive cases have been reported at Ludlow to date.
Teachers will begin using the Bloomz app. soon. We just purchased schoolwide access and this will make for another form of quick communication with families.
Chain of Command:
Just wanted to send a friendly reminder that classroom teachers are your first point of contact with questions or concerns. Administration would be your second layer of support. Our teachers are experts and can help you resolve most issues.
We look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow as we close out the week! As always, we appreciate your support of Ludlow! Enjoy your weekend.
-Dr. Williams, Principal
