​Dear Lakers Families,    On Thursday, December 2 we are anticipating a shortage of teachers and aides. Because we have no substitute teachers on call, this lack of instructional personnel leaves us without enough adults for supervision, safety, or to effectively support student learning. As a result, we are planning on having a virtual learning day on Thursday.     For the virtual learning day, students will not be required to join video meetings. They will be given work to complete by their teachers and will be expected to respond to communications sent out by teachers. Students who participate in communicating with teachers and doing work assigned that day will be marked present.     Your student should bring their Chromebook home on Wednesday night and make sure they check their email in the morning. Teachers will email students by 8:30 in the morning. Many teachers will be asking students to complete missing work that day.     We know that holding a virtual learning day such as this is disruptive to families and we apologize for the inconvenience it may cause.     Thank you,     Sarah Russell  Interim Principal​
