The District has acquired Antigen tests that may be administered at home for any student or staff member that has not yet tested. The Antigen tests are ONLY for those students/staff who did NOT test on January 3rd or January 4th. They will be distributed to families on Wednesday, January 5th from 12:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Families will need to pick up the Antigen tests at their individual child’s home school. Only one test per LCE student will be distributed, and we will track who has been given an Antigen test.
If your child's Antigen test shows a positive result, please email the site Health Clerk and include the Principal and Nurse Katrina Metz in the email. We appreciate your cooperation as we work to keep our schools open and our community safe.
At an emergency meeting of the LCUSD Board of Education today the Board took action to require a negative Covid-19 test for all students and staff in order to return to school for in-person learning. Additionally, the Governing Board took action to delay the post-holiday return to campus for in-person instruction until Thursday, January 6, 2022. Please be advised that tomorrow, Wednesday, January 5, will be an at-home instructional day with teachers posting assignments, preparing packets, or opting to instruct via zoom according to the daily bell schedule. Teachers will be notifying students and/or families directly regarding the format for their Wednesday (tomorrow’s) instruction. (Please click to read full message)
