LETTER FROM PRINCIPAL PERSONIUS JANUARY 14, 2021
Dear Livingstone Families,
All indications from Governor Kate Brown, Oregon Department of Education and Oregon Health Authority indicate that Oregon schools are moving to re-opening. The wait is over, we made it!
Livingstone Adventist Academy is planning to begin in-person instruction the first day of our second semester, which is Jan. 27. We will continue to offer Comprehensive Distance Learning only for those students who are medically at-risk, sick, quarantined, or families that are concerned of
possible Covid-19 risk to their child or other family members in their household. All other students and their families should plan to have their child(ren) attending school regularly beginning Jan. 27th. We are asking that if you are considering keeping your child at home for distance learning under the reasons covered that you first contact the school office and receive verbal approval to do so. Generally, we have noted that students who are attending school in person are experiencing more success.
All Covid-19 safety measures published by Oregon Department of Education and Oregon Health Authority such as, keeping students at home when they are sick, quarantining students if they are experiencing primary Covid-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone with Covid-19, health screening students and staff members when they arrive on campus, washing hands frequently, wearing a mask, distancing, smaller group or cohort sizes, and cleanings will remain in place.
Since we will continue to offer Comprehensive Distance Learning we will move to a modified in-person schedule whereby all Elementary and High School students will begin school at 8:30 am. Elementary and High School students will continue to enter through the two separate entrances they have been using. Morning health screenings will continue. We ask that students not arrive or enter
the building earlier than 15 minutes before school starts as we will not be operating morning or afternoon day care at this time. We ask that students be picked up promptly after school and that high school students who are driving leave promptly after their last class to avoid distancing or cohort mixing issues.
Elementary (pre-k-8th grades) schedule will be 8:30 a.m.-2:15 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 8:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. on Fridays.
High School second semester schedules will be sent to high school students through their school email addresses by the end of this week. We will begin offering afternoon electives to High School students starting Jan. 27. High school hours will be:
Monday-Thursday; 8:30 a.m.-2:35 p.m. (no elective)
Monday-Thursday; 8:30 a.m.-3:25 p.m. (if enrolled in an elective)
Friday; 8:30 a.m.-12:25 p.m. (no elective)
Friday; 8:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. (if enrolled in an elective)
We are also very excited to announce that our very own Chef, Ben McCormick will be re-joining us and begin serving simple hot lunches starting Jan. 27. Price for hot lunches will remain the same as last year at $3.50. If you wish to have your child begin receiving hot lunch, please come by the school office to make arrangements with Pam Naylor, Office Manager.
We are also hearing the positive news that Centers for Disease Control in communication with local health authorities have increased eligibility, starting Jan. 23, to receive a voluntary Covid-19 vaccination. School employees, those 65 or older or those 18 or older with medical conditions that put them at medically at-risk are to be included in this group. More information is sure to come through local news feeds on this, but we are pleased to see this news align with schools re-opening.
We look forward to seeing most all of our students return to an increased in-person schedule Jan. 27 and the expanding opportunities this will afford our students and their families. We feel blessed at LAA to have large rooms to spread our students out in. We hear that a return to near full-time school is simply not possible for other large schools in our area. Therefore, we ask that you let other families know about the in-person opportunity here at LAA. They may have students who find virtual or hybrid learning a struggle. We ask you to encourage them to contact Livingstone Adventist Academy considering the Academy to be their new school.
Praise the Lord for his many blessings!
