Important January Updates

Good morning LPE families! I hope that you are all as healthy as possible these days.  It has been an interesting start to 2022 but our focus has continued to be on keeping our doors open, making sure our students and staff are safe, and providing our usual rigorous curriculum!  I know there is a high level of concern nationwide due to this continued COVID outbreak but here at LPE, we are continuing to push forward while remaining as safe as possible. Let’s continue to work together to support these wonderful LPE students.  As always, let me know if I can do anything to help you or your child!  Please see below for some updates.  --MM

  1. Please click HERE for some updated COVID procedural changes.  The big change is that now, we are able to accept Rapid Antigen and/or PCR testing results.  This document contains info on how/when your child can return to school after an absence due to COVID based on the updated Decision Tree.
  2. Click HERE for our district’s COVID Dashboard.  This helpful webpage contains updated information about the number of district COVID outbreaks, active cases, etc. Very interesting info!

  4. GATE Testing Info – GATE (Gifted and Talented) testing occurs annually for all 2nd grade students in late winter/early spring (this is a parent option of course). 2nd grade parents will be receiving information about this soon.  Unfortunately, GATE testing was impacted in 2020 and 2021 by the COVID pandemic.  In 2020, we were only able to test one 2nd grade class before the shutdown (if your child was in Mrs. Breadmore’s class in 2019-2020 and need a copy of your child’s GATE score, please email me at mmorici@sandi.net). Due to this, many of our current 3rd and 4th grade students have not had the opportunity to be GATE tested. These students may be tested this summer during our SDUSD “Summer Experience” (which will be offered at Loma Portal this year).  More information can be found HERE and in future communications.  Please stay tuned. In the meantime, information on the SDUSD GATE program can be found below.  If you have questions, please contact me at mmorici@sandi.net.
