Dr. Kurt Steinhaus and kids at Mountain Elementary

Dear LAPS parents and families,

Thanks and congratulations on an outstanding first day of school.

Everything I heard today was positive and supportive. Tomorrow, I will get to work on making necessary adjustments.

We are all part of accelerated innovation and change in education on a scale not seen in our lifetimes.

Important News

The LAPS School Board voted Tuesday night to open schools with 100% remote learning for all students. Any change to the hybrid model will include a 4-week lead time and be based upon meeting criteria developed by LAPS staff and approved by the School Board, subject to PED requirements and Health Orders.  

School will begin on Thursday, August 13 for all students registered with LAPS. Teachers will report on August 5.

The School Board had considered a hybrid model which would limit the number of students present in the building at any given time, but members agreed that it is important to make a decision that is the safest for staff and students and enables teachers to have time to prepare. 

Teachers and staff will have opportunities to develop their remote learning skills through professional development and access to tools and resources to enhance online learning.

The Safe Start Task Force has been working on a plan for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Click here to see the current report.
