Everything You Need to Know About Qualtrics Daily Emails

In an effort to keep students and staff safe and healthy, you will be receiving a daily email that is from Qualtrics.  It is a health screening email for you to complete for your student before your student arrives at school each morning.  We are asking that it be completed by 7:30am everyday your student attends school.   We will be checking our list in the morning that the screening has been completed, and that your student has been approved to attend school that day.

Please do not send your student to school if they have any of the following symptoms:  fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath, fatigue, diarrhea, vomiting, runny nose, or body/muscle aches.

GoGuardian Parent App Information

October 29, 2020

Dear Parent or Guardian,

To help keep your child safer and more academically focused when online, La Center School District is excited to offer the GoGuardian Parent App to give parents more visibility into their student’s online activities. While we think this app will be of great value to many families, its use is optional. It may be helpful to know that over 10,000 other schools use GoGuardian to protect 5.5 million students across the world, and the Global Educator Institute has endorsed the GoGuardian Teacher product.

What does the GoGuardian Parent App do?

The user interface and illustrative charts quickly communicate student online activity so that parents can see their student’s online activity. Parents also have content filtering controls and the capability of pausing their student’s internet connection so they can better manage their student’s device usage at home.

How are we using GoGuardian?

To help protect students against harmful and inappropriate online material.
To help students stay more academically focused when learning online.

When and how does GoGuardian operate?

GoGuardian’s web-based services operate whenever a student is logged into Chrome or a Chromebook with their school email address. As a district, we have chosen settings for GoGuardian that maximize parental controls. The settings you create for your student will be in effect 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

What are the parents’/guardians’ and student’s responsibilities?

Students are responsible for using their school-managed Google accounts and school-managed devices for educational purposes and staying compliant with the district’s Acceptable Use Policy.

When a student is off campus, parents are responsible for supervising their student’s internet access and usage. We encourage discussing appropriate internet usage with your student and support parental reinforcement of their digital citizenship and internet safety lessons. We also strongly recommend that you report potential cyberbullying or other online safety concerns to us.

Dear La Center Elementary Families,

I look forward to sharing with you the incredible journey of elementary education.  As a staff, we pledge to provide the best possible experience to all children.  Our team will continue to strive for the quality and connection that has made LCES an integral part of the community.

As a principal, I work to ensure a safe, caring environment and to provide students with a focused classroom setting — leading to academic growth and achievement.  I believe that every child is capable and significant, that each individual can contribute, and has the right to be understood.  As a team, our staff will do our best to meet the needs of every child, every day.

We invite you to join us as partners in the education of your child.  A vital commitment between school and home allows our children to reach their full potential. You can take an active role in student learning by working with your child’s teacher, supporting school activities, volunteering in your child’s classroom, and joining the La Center Elementary Parent Teacher Association (PTO).  We welcome your involvement, assistance and insight.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact me at 360-263-2134.  I look forward to working with you this year.  Again, welcome back to school!

Mike Nolan, PK-2 Principal

La Center Elementary School

As you may know, we have been working to improve our morning (before school) supervision and students getting to their correct locations in a timely manner.  We have tried some changes and today have our plan moving forward for the school year.  Our plan is as follows:
-As in the past, morning supervision starts at 8:00 each day in the bus area, horseshoe drop off/pick up area, the playground, and the cafeteria.
-The field side of campus will not open up until 8:10 each day, when students will be invited into classrooms.
-Students coming on campus will be allowed to either go to the playground or the cafeteria for breakfast.  We will no longer gather outside the office.
-Tasha will now be stationed and supervising between the elementary gym and the music portable from 8:00 until unlocking doors for main building entry for students at 8:10.
-There will be signage in the old bell area near the football field showing the cafeteria and playground options.
-Students may go to the office when needed by walking the cafeteria route from the bus area.
-We will continue our extra staff supervision of moving areas through the second week of school.
-We will be ready with inclement weather options of cover with our playshed, the covered area outside Mrs. Crandall’s room, and the glass side of the cafeteria if needed.
