  • Message from the Superintendent: Update re: COVID-19 March 3 | 5:24 p.m.

    Hello LOSD Community, monitoring and responding to the case of COVID-19 in our community continues to be at the forefront of what is happening in LOSD. Today we are addressing further questions and concerns from our community. Respect and dignity. We are investigating some reports of students who have been targeted and discriminated against in connection to the coronavirus COVID-19. This is unacceptable and contrary to our values of equity and inclusiveness. Our responsibility is to provide welcoming, safe, and inclusive schools, and we do not tolerate acts of discrimination. This is especially important at a time when fears about the virus can too easily foster suspicion without regard for facts. Please keep close to our values, continue to treat everyone in our community with respect, and recognize the dignity and humanity of everyone. Please click on headline for full article.

  • LOSD Facilities: Cleaning & Disinfecting Details March, 2 | 3:18 p.m.

    Dear LOSD Teachers and Staff, we want to assure you that all school facilities, including classrooms and common areas, have been cleaned and disinfected. Below and attached are details on how they were cleaned. Please note: In addition to manual wiping of surfaces, electrostatic disinfectant sprayers were used. The electrostatic spray machines deploy charge disinfectant particles into an area that covers every surface in the space, including all items left out. Electrostatic applications are proven to be most effective and create a bond between the spray and surfaces. Using electrostatic spray machines mean that items do not need to be moved or wiped, which is why spaces may have looked "untouched" upon return to school this morning. In addition to the work performed this weekend, we are working with our facilities team to prioritize the disinfecting of our schools. Disinfecting procedures will use district supplies. Thank you for your care and concern during this time. Sincerely, Mary Kay Larson Communications Director. Click on headline for full article.
