Know God, Seek Wisdom, Serve Others
LETTER FROM PRINCIPAL PERSONIUS MARCH 13, 2020
Dear Livingstone Families,
As many of you have heard through the news media, Governor Brown has extended Oregon School closures through April 28. Oregon Conference Leaders have informed all Oregon SDA schools to follow this executive mandate in closing our schools. Just know that your children and families are in our prayers as we find our way through these uncharted times.
Despite instructions stopping for all Oregon public school students, I am happy to report that Livingstone Adventist Academy will continue with daily electronic or packet learning and will be moving toward offering even more to our Christ centered E-learning opportunities for our students. Our Teachers are busy testing and becoming acquainted with new and innovative ways to reach and teach our students on-line to ensure our children continue to offer meaningful and relevant learning opportunities for our students. It puts a smile on my face to hear of our resourceful high school student leaders beginning to lay future plans and brainstorm ways to hold electronic student get-togethers with their peers.
Your child’s teacher(s) will continue to be in contact with you or your middle-school, High School student to keep informed regarding specifics of virtual classroom meeting times, daily expectations, assignments and times they will be available to answer questions or offer additional instruction to your child. Our teachers and administration will be working on getting revised e-learning schedules out to you and your students so that we can routine to a learning routine.
Despite the unusual learning path we are now on, we want to reassure you that your child’s educational needs are being looked after and LAA will continue to offer specially designed instruction to continue your child’s education.
Next week is our normally scheduled Spring Break, so there will be no school and the school office will also be closed.
When we return from Spring Break, Livingstone Adventist Academy’s revised office hours for e-learning will be 9:00-1:00 p.m. Monday-Friday. We continue to stay in close collaboration with our colleagues across the conference to increase our effectiveness.
Again, please know that during these trying times, our prayers are with you and please remember that our almighty father has us in the palm of his hands.
“Don’t worry about anything, instead pray about everything. Tell God your needs and thank him for all he has done.” Philippians 4:6-7
Looking for our Alumni! We are in the process of putting a database together for anyone who has attended or worked at either Livingstone Adventist Academy or Livingstone Junior Academy. We need your full name (maiden and married), address, email, phone number and years you attended. Also, anyone else you can remember from the years you attended and where they may be.
