Hello Lancer Parents,
The 2021-22 school year is underway!
I have a few items to bring to your attention.
Free and Reduced Lunch form: Although all students will continue to receive free meals (breakfast and lunch) for the 2021-2022 school year, we ask that anyone that may qualify fill out the form. This form must be completed to determine if your child qualifies for a fee waiver. Please complete the form and return it to the high school office by August 27, 2021. The district receives additional funding from the state and federal governments that directly benefit students based on the percentage of students who qualify.
Unfortunately, we are still dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and we will still be doing things a little differently than we did before it started.
Please continue to monitor your student(s) for symptoms. If your child is sick, please keep them home.
Masks are optional, but recommended by the Ohio Department of Health and Licking County Health Department, for students and staff. The one exception is that the CDC is requiring all individuals on school buses wear masks.
Social distancing will be done to the greatest extent possible.
Seating charts will be used in all areas because contact tracing is still required.
Enhanced cleaning will take place in all buildings.
Frequent handwashing and hand sanitizing will be encouraged.
Sneeze and cough etiquette will be taught and emphasized.
Students should bring water bottles to school and use the bottle fillers in the building.
The Lakewood Local Schools will follow the Guidelines for Quarantining and Isolation as outlined by the Ohio Department of Health.
Any student who tests positive for COVID-19, whether vaccinated or unvaccinated, will be required to isolate per the LCHD.
Any student deemed a ‘close contact’ to an individual testing positive for COVID-19 will be reported to the LCHD. The LCHD will contact all ‘close contacts’ to inform them of the need to quarantine or not.
Let’s make 2021-22 the best year possible.
Kevin Krier, Principal
Lakewood High School
