Dear LWSD Online School Families
Welcome to the LWSD Online School. I want each of you to know how excited I am to start the year with you. As we continue prepare for the first day of school on September 1, I wanted to share with you information about the first few days of school, laptop pickup, and how to attend our online family orientation session.
 
The First Days of Online School September 1 - 3
To best prepare for the year, our teachers are going to spend the first few days of school connecting with their classes and connecting with you. You will receive an invitation to attend a Family Connection meeting from your child’s teacher or adviser. These meetings will take place on September 1, 2, and 3 during the day. Please look for more information and directions for scheduling these meetings with your child’s teacher.

Laptop Distribution
For families that have requested a school laptop or mobile hotspot, we will be distributing these on Tuesday, August 31. Families that have requested either will be sent a direct email with the time and location of their device pickup. It is important that you arrive at your schedule time and have the necessary paperwork filled out before you arrive. This will make things go quickly. 

If you have requested a device, I will send you specific directions and information about picking up your laptop.
 
Online School Family Welcome Event
I would like to host an online Family Welcome Session on Tuesday, August 31 at 6:00 pm. This will be a chance to meet the team of teachers and specialists that are part of our LWSD Online School family. The session will be recorded if you are unable to attend live.

Secondary Course Registration
I have sent out information to all secondary families about selecting courses for the fall. Middle school students will take 5 classes and high school students will take 6. All secondary students will also take a required Foundations courses that will meet synchronously each week. The course will earn .5 elective credits for the year. Secondary course registration must be completed as soon as possible.
 
If you have any questions, or need to update your enrollment preference, please let me know as soon as possible.
