Washington, D.C. Trip Update…

Hi everyone,

I wanted to send an update to you about the Spring 2021 Washington DC trip.  Unfortunately, we will not be taking the trip in June (the last three days of school) with our current eighth graders.  

We have waited to see what was going to happen with the pandemic and because of how it is progressing, cancelling the trip is the safest option for us.  There is just no way to socially distance on a bus, in a hotel, and many of the locations that we visit are closed due to COVID-19.  
It is disheartening knowing that this class won’t be able to go.  We always enjoy taking the students on this trip, for the mere fact of the hands-on/visual learning that takes place outside of the classroom.  

Prodigy Student Travel will be retaining $49.50 per the policy passed out during the parent meeting (also on the school website).  Everything else will be refunded to you.  If you have any questions about the individual refund policy, please contact the company.  Lakota Local Schools nor myself has anything to do with the refund.  It was a contract that each parent entered into with the company, not the school district, when you signed your child up on the website and made the deposit. All refunds will be sent out by next Friday, January 22nd. 

This trip will not be rescheduled for next year.  Thank you and if you have any additional questions not regarding payment, please send them my way!

Mrs. Henry

COVID-19 Reporting Procedures

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced on August 27, 2020 an Ohio Department of Health order that requires K-12 schools to establish a mechanism for parents and guardians to report confirmed cases of COVID-19 among their children. In that order is the responsibility of each school district to make publicly available non-identifying information about positive COVID-19 cases.

School Nurse McKenzie Frey, is the District’s COVID-19 Coordinator per state order. She is responsible for tracking all COVID-19 positive cases and reporting confirmed cases to the Sandusky County Health Department. In order to expedite contact tracing and avert any further transmission of COVID-19 we are asking parents/guardians of all Lakota students to please call the nurse to report positive tests and/or cases of COVID-19 no later than twenty-four hours after receiving a positive test and/or diagnosis.

Within 24 hours of Lakota Schools becoming aware of a student, teacher, staff member, or coach who has tested positive or been diagnosed with COVID-19, we will notify staff and families via ParentSquare of a positive test or case of all students or staff who share a classroom space or have participated in a school activity during the COVID-19 infectious period of a student, teacher, staff member, or coach.

Please contact Mrs. Frey with any questions or concerns you may have for your student(s). She can be reached by phone at 419-986-6640 ext. 5111 or by email at mfrey@lakotaschools.org
