Dear LSR7 Parents and Guardians:
With the winter months coming up, we are reminding you today that our first five inclement weather days will once again be virtual learning days this year.
As you know, starting last year the state allowed school districts to provide instruction virtually on days when it otherwise would have canceled school due to weather. These days, called alternative methods of instruction or “AMI Days” by the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, do not have to be made up at the end of year and we can use them up to five times.
Only starting on our sixth snow/inclement weather day would we cancel classes as has been custom during snow/inclement weather days of the past and begin adding instruction days to our school year. Currently, the last day of school is scheduled for May 26, 2022.
On AMI days, district communication will be sent to families and staff announcing that all school classes will take place virtually, along with reminders for students regarding how to access instructional materials.
Every teacher will use the Schoology platform to share lessons, assignments, and resources with students by 9 a.m.
Students are expected to access and complete assignments, meet deadlines, engage in the work, and communicate with their teachers, peers, or parents if they are needing assistance.
Work must be completed in order for student attendance for the day(s) to be counted.
While some critical staff will continue reporting to school sites, please assume that most employees will be working remotely and are best reached via email.
Thank you for your cooperation and support.
Executive Director of Public Relations
