LaBrae Student Quarantine Guidelines

Ohio released new quaratine guidelines this week, and LaBrae is implementing the revised guidelines in an effort to reduce the number of students in quarantine.  Please read the guidelines in the PDF below.  Should you have questions regarding the changes, please contact Mrs. Sharron Harper, the school nurse, or Mr. Calderone, LaBrae's COVID-19 Coordinator.

Senior Yard Signs Available

Yard sign which says "Proud family of a LaBrae Viking senior."

Yard signs for display honoring LaBrae seniors are now available for sale at the Board of Education Office between the hours of 8:00 to 3:00.  Signs are $10.  These are a perfect way to publicly acknowledge your graduating senior.  Also, if your child is a senior next year, buying your sign now allows you to display it during the coming school year.  {Signs are paid for by the LaBrae Levy Committee; Karen Ancell, Treasurer}

H.S./M.S. Student Drop-Off/Pick-Up Instructions Focus on Student Safety

In an effort to improve safety and limit the number of building entry points during the morning M.S./H.S. drop off, LaBrae is making adjustments to our morning drop off locations. Students are not permitted to enter the M.S./H.S. at the doors located on the west side of the Complex as permitted in prior years.  The three points of entry for all students will be the main high school entrance, the middle school entrance adjacent to the bus loading zone, and the main Event Entrance. When dropping off your middle school or high school student(s), we are requiring that parents use the driving lane directly along the M.S./H.S. entrance, if you enter the school campus from N. Leavitt, or the newly designated drop-off location in front of the Board of Education Office, if you are entering the school campus from Eagle Creek Dr.  Also, all student drivers must use the M.S. entrance or the Event Entrance.  

The drop off zones will be marked with cones, and we encourage multiple vehicles drop off students at one time in the designated zones.  This should help expedite the drop off process and move the traffic through more efficiently.  Additionally, students are not to be dropped off in the main drive of the Complex or in the visitor/staff parking lot in front of the high school.  Doing so creates an unsafe environment where students then have to cross traffic in the main drive and/or the visitor parking lot in front of the Complex. 

In order to prevent students from crossing through traffic, we ask that parents do not park along the main drive for student pick up.  Parents picking up their M.S./H.S. child are to use the driving lane adjacent to the school, or the parking lot in front of the Board of Education Office, which is directly behind the bus loading zone. Vehicles are prohibited from being in the bus loading zone during student drop-off/pick-up times.

It is important to eliminate, as practical as possible, any practices where students have to cross traffic as they enter or exit the building. Therefore, we kindly request that our parents join us in helping to make the morning/afternoon traffic environment at LaBrae a safe place for students.  Your cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated!

Please refer to the map below for the designated areas referred to above.

LaBrae Learning Recovery and Extended Learning Plan

Governor DeWine has requested that schools and districts design plans that address learning recovery and extended learning opportunities to meet the needs of students that could include, but are not limited to, extending the current school year, beginning the new year early, extending the school day or instituting summer programs, tutoring, remote options, and other remedial or supplemental activities.

Use the link below to access LaBrae's plan.  Note that the plan is very fluid, still under development, and subject to change.  Additionally, there is a link in the plan that allows anyone to submit feedback to the District regarding the learning plan.
