Hello Lakeland Families,
I am thrilled for our upcoming 2021-2022 school year together! I feel blessed to serve another year as your Principal at Lakeland Elementary School. Lakeland has a reputation of being a social justice, equity focused, all-inclusive, welcoming environment that focuses on scholars social, emotional, and academic needs in order for them to achieve at high levels and we continue to strive to become the best. It is with great excitement that we get ready to embark upon a new school year with anticipation of new opportunities that will enhance our instructional program and school community as a whole. We are committed to providing high quality instruction to our scholars and look forward to seeing every scholar very soon.
Re-Opening this Fall in a smooth and safe way is extremely important to us. We will be using guidance from OSPI and the Department of Health, we are planning for a safe return that prioritizes learning. In accordance with Gov. Inslee and OSPI direction, we will be opening the year with full face to face instruction. Please stay tuned for more information to come in the coming weeks.
Our scholars’ health and safety are a priority. As we prepare for our face to face fall re-opening, our district is hard at work developing health and safety protocols which include social distancing guidelines, arranging schedules that minimize high traffic contact, considering bus transportation and engaging in deep cleaning protocols to minimize the spread of germs. As part of ensuring a safe learning environment, all scholars and staff will be required to wear face masks. Please take the time this summer to both reinforce and practice the wearing of face masks. FWPS will continue to place health and safety as a priority as we look forward to welcoming our scholars back on September 1st.
Our assistant principal, Zachary Liedtke and I will be hosting two family zoom sessions to share current health & safety protocols and what the 1st Three Days of School will look like for your scholar. These zoom sessions will take place on August 26th from 6:00-7:00pm and August 30th from 6:00-7:00pm. I hope you can join for one of these sessions. Thank you for trusting us with your scholar(s) and your partnership as we prepare for the return of full in-person learning this fall. Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have questions and remember to check your email often for the most upcoming information/details.
Thank you for remaining our steadfast partners in this journey. We appreciate your flexibility and persistence. We will do everything in our power to serve you and ensure that your scholar has a voice, a dream, a bright future!
