Principal's Update from Ms. Wheeler August 30th

Courtney Wheeler

Good afternoon Lafayette families,

Thank you to our students for showing Lion Pride by being a role model, caring, and safe at school.  Students will begin receiving Lion Pride tickets the week of September 7, when they exemplify role model, caring, and safe behaviors.  Ask your child to share how to be a role model, caring, and safe on the bus, in the hall, in class, and in other locations at school.  

Please, know that safety of staff and students is our top priority.  Please, do not send students to school if they have any of the following symptoms:  fever, fatigue, shortness of breath, or cough.  Please, do not send your child to school if they’ve been in contact with someone with COVID-19.  If you suspect your child has COVID-19 and are waiting for test results, please keep them home.  If your child has tested positive for COVID-19, please call the school.  Let us know as soon as possible so we can address potential exposures at school.

Keep in mind that this Thursday, September 2 is an early dismissal; notices will be sent home tomorrow.  Both Friday 9/3/21 and Monday 9/6/21 are student holidays.  We will not have school on these days.  

Please, let us know if you or your child need support from school by calling us at 540-310-0029.  We appreciate your partnership!


Courtney Wheeler, Principal
