Although we are not together to open the school year, I am very excited to take the first step toward a normal routine. It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2020-21 school year. Please note, if you have any questions regarding the school, we’re here to help. Our office staff, administration, counselors, and teachers are working hard to answer every email, voicemail, and instant message. I encourage you to ask small questions and big questions. We are here to serve you through the virtual school experience and will not stop until you are satisfied.
If it wasn’t troublesome enough to close the school year under tough circumstances, we are opening this school year with an entirely new interactive classroom, Canvas. Prior to the opening of school tomorrow morning, please “Be Canvas Ready”. By visiting our website you’ll find the directions to ensure your device is prepared for a good start. Again, do not hesitate to contact our school for assistance or the district technology help desk, 859-381-4410. If you haven’t visited our website, I encourage you to do so for all the latest updates and announcements for school success.
Last night, our Board of Education voted to follow the KHSAA guidelines for healthy sports. All fall athletic competitions are scheduled to move forward with a shortened practice and competition schedule. Please reach out to your coach via email, listed on our website, in the athletics section, for more information about practices. Our athletic director, Mr. Cory Canter, is a great resource for any question you may have about your sport. Please utilize our in-school health clinic, HealthFirst Bluegrass for your physical needs, 859-381-3203. The physical form is located in the athletic section of our website.
Along with HealthFirst Bluegrass School Clinic, we are equipped to serve a broad range of needs during normal circumstances and throughout this unprecedented pandemic. Our main page of the school website features the phone numbers of our support options. Please reach out to us in the main office or utilize any of the options listed to meet your needs. I’m happy to announce Ms. Kara Leavell is our new Youth Service Coordinator and is available to support you at any time, 859-381-4406.
Finally, we are ready to provide virtual distance instruction at the highest level possible! I’m extremely proud of our teachers and staff for their efforts throughout the summer months and weeks leading to our opening day. I’m confident that you will be impressed with your child’s teachers and pleased with the levels of learning at the beginning of the year. We’ve assigned our mentors to every student and attempted to reach every student by telephone prior to opening day. Expect your child’s mentor to continue to reach out and guide their mentee throughout the school year.
As always, it is a pleasure to serve as your principal. On the behalf of the LTMS Faculty, welcome to FCPS NTI 2DL!
