Principal Update Dec 2

Phase 2/ LCFF Form

Good afternoon LPE families! I hope you all had a safe, HEALTHY, and fun-filled Thanksgiving Break.  Personally, it was nice to get away from things for a few days, although I stayed in town. Please be safe out there and take as many precautions as possible, especially now that we are in the holiday season.  We have to keep our LPE community healthy! As we all know, December tends to move quickly with just 3 weeks of school before the winter break so I wanted to keep you up to date on some very important topics. Please see below.  Have a wonderful week everyone!  --MM

  • **Important  - All SDUSD families should have received an email from the district last night notifiying you that, unfortunately, SDUSD's plan for Phase 2 of school reopening has been put on hold due to our county and state's current health and safety circumstances (purple tier). Phase 2 will involve ALL students having the option of coming back to school for 3 hours, 4 days per week but this WILL NOT begin on January 4th.  Our hope is that we will eventually get to Phase 2 when it is safe to do do of course.  SDUSD will reassess our county's health conditions and provide an updated timetable for return on January 13th. 

  • **Important - our district has changed the way in which we collect valuable Title 1 funding data and we NEED YOUR HELP! Title 1 funding is federal dollars used to support public schools and they are VERY important to our district's annual budget.  Without Title 1 funding, schools would not have the necessary finances to function properly.  Normally, our district's Title 1 funding is based on your "Free and Reduced Lunch" form that is filled out annually.  This form asks information such as how many children you have and what your annual income is.  This information is confidential and is used to determine how much federal Title 1 funding our district will receive.  This year, we are switching to an online format for collecting this valuable information. Effective immediately, you can provide this information by completing the "LCFF Data Collection" tab in the Powerschool Parent Portal (  Many of you created a Parent Portal account to view your child's grades.  Please use this same account to complete the LCFF Data Collection page.  I am attaching 2 jobaids below.  One is for support in creating a Parent Portal account, which you can use to view grades, schedules, etc. for each of your children. The other is for help in completing the LCFF Data Collection form.  Again, taking a moment to complete this form gives our school valuable funding so please support our school by logging in and answering some short questions.  If you need any support, please let me know!
