Dear parents,

After a very difficult year for all of us, we are returning to Lithuanian School in person on Saturday, September 11th at 9 a.m.

Thank you to all the loyal students who participated in our Zoom distance learning program. It was very successful with 130 students registered and 15 teachers conducting classes every Saturday. That was truly a testament to your love of the Lithuanian language and culture. I think the students enjoyed themselves and were able to keep in touch with their friends while continuing their studies. Those who did not participate in Zoom classes last year and would like to rejoin their classmates will have to show proof of schoolwork that was done at home during the lockdown year. They will not be automatically promoted to the next grade. If students have no proof of work completed , their competency will be evaluated . There is an additional fee of 50dol. for this test.

As we return to the parish facilities, we will follow all the prescribed safety guidelines :

*There will be a temperature check at the gate as well as a verification of no Covid symptoms.

*All teachers ,assistants,school volunteers and others working on the premises during school  hours must be vaccinated.

*KISKIU pre-school parents must be vaccinated

*Vaccination of all eligible adults and children is highly recommended.

*Teachers,students,staff and anyone entering through the school gates must wear masks at all times.

*Parent and guest visits to the schoolyard, delivery of food,or socializing will not be permitted.We will designate safe areas for parents to gather.

*There will be no lunch served; students must bring snacks ,drinks , and water bottles from home.

*We will observe safety protocols in the classrooms; dancing and singing classes will take place outside.

*All registration forms are found on this website.

We will inform parents of any changes to guidelines.

We urgently need the following parental help during school hurs : gate guard (paid position); playground safety monitors (paid position);temperature and health checklist screeners (volunteers).

Please volunteer to help wherever you can. Our school has always functioned successfully thanks to dedicated parents and teachers. Contact M.Newsom or Indraja Jonusonis.

Looking forward to a happy,healthy year. Mokykla jūsų laukia!
