Parent Involvement

A unique element of LCNS’ curriculum is that the participation of parents, grandparents, extended family or close friends of each student is integrated into the curriculum. This is a wonderful opportunity to bond with your child, and to participate in an ongoing activity that is a significant part of their weekly routine.

When they come home and relate stories from class, you’ll have a context for what they are describing. Ongoing parent helper schedules are also published in the monthly newsletter to help facilitate trades, substitutions and timing adjustments, based on the most current assignments.

While we enjoyed having our parents back into the classrooms during September, we have determined, after much consideration, that it brings unnecessary exposures to all involved, regardless of vaccination status.  We understand that parent helping is a valued part of our program and assure you the decision was made in the best interest of all involved.  We hope this remains a temporary decision and that we can once again welcome our parents back into the classroom in the future, when conditions are different.  The only obligation pertaining to the October parent helper schedule will be providing the healthy snack on your scheduled day.
