    Parent Questions and Answers:

    Q- How can parents get the LCS student work packets?

    Work packets for Prek-12 grade are located online (link on the school website).  If needed, parent can pick up a printed copy at the school.  KLES will have printed packets in grade level boxes located outside the front office door.


    Q- Do students need to complete work packets?

    Yes, the expectation is to complete and get grades for assignments.  These grades will be part of their 4th nine weeks grade, and assist in promotion/retention decisions in May.


    Q- How will my child continue learning during the absence from school due to COVID-19?

    • There will be three phases of “transition” into distance learning for LCS.
    • March 23-30: All students were considered to be on an extended “Spring Break” until Monday, March 30th.
    • March 30-April 10: Beginning on Monday, March 30th, students are provided with review packets of academic materials created by LCS curriculum developers. The review packets will be available either online at, school websites, or in paper form for pick up at school sites, or at food distribution sites.

    In the two weeks between March 30th and April 13th, teachers and schools will be moving to distance learning using a blended model.  All teachers will be in contact by April 1.

    • April 13 and beyond: Beginning on April 13th, schools and teachers will be delivering distance                          learning. Specific communication regarding students learning from home  for instruction for April 13th and beyond will come from school sites. 


    Q- How can my child complete the review packets provided if they do not have computer or internet access? 

    Printed packets will be available at KLES, as mentioned above.


    Q-  When will the review packets be expected to be returned for grading? 

    PLEASE KEEP ALL ASSIGNMENTS AND PACKETS AT HOME UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.  We will communicate further, once the Governor's "stay at home" order has been lifted.


    Q- Will the review packets be graded and will they be incorporated into my child’s grade? 

    Yes, for details please contact your child's teacher.


    Q- How will my child receive assistance if they struggle with the review packets? 

     Teachers will have "office hours" each day and will be available for questions/answers.  Please see individual teacher websites.



    Incoming KLES Kindergarten families can register online.  Please hold all documents until further notice.  You may email our school Registrar Mrs. Payne for details.
