What’s New at LCS


I personally, being a cancer survivor/battler, want to thank all our families for their respect and cooperation with consistent mask wearing. With that, it is also very important to remember that if someone in your family is being tested, or has 2 or more “less common symptoms” (see attached decision tree) than their siblings should also remain at home until they get results back. This is very important in keeping our staff, students and school a safe place. It also is important in helping keep the school open to all students.

Butterfly Experience

Last Friday, students & staff had the pleasure of listening to Isabella Williams talk about her butterfly garden and see her butterflies first hand. Thank you Isabella for sharing your knowledge with our students. See pictures below.


We had a fun surprise on Thursday from Jersey Sweet Ice cream truck! The students and staff have been working so hard and adjusting so well in the last few weeks, they deserved a treat!  Thank you to PROS for sponsoring this fun treat!

Families: Do you have any extra dishwasher safe (high temperature safe) water bottles or paper cups laying around? LCS is looking for extras! You can drop off any donations in the LCS office.
