March 24th Update

March 24, 2020


To All Connected to Liberty Union-Thurston Schools,


The Liberty Union COVID-19 Information webpage has a collection of all the daily updates dating back to March 16, 2020. Updates will be made once daily on Monday through Friday unless there is critical information or an announcement of great importance to share at a different time.  


Updated: March 24, 2020 at 3:00 P.M.


FOOD SERVICE NEW

  • Free meal food service is continuing for children up to age 18. 

  • The food service plan is different for the week of March 23rd than it was previously.

  • We are offering weekly meal pick up rather than daily.

  • This week the pick up was on Monday the 23rd.

  • If you missed it, please contact Jan Friedrich with the number of children in your home at [email protected] or text 614-579-8807. You can then pick up for the rest of this week on Wednesday. 

  • Curbside pick-up will still be held at the back of the middle school building. However, we may expand to using the front loop as well.  Look for posted signs if this does occur. The Thurston pick up location is the same. 

  • The district will not be responsible for monitoring food allergies during this time. However, if your child has a severe allergy to peanut butter, please let us know, as we will routinely be using Uncrustables.

  • If you plan to participate in the weekly curbside pickup, please contact Jan Friedrich with the number of children in your home at [email protected] or text 614-579-8807 in order for us to better serve your students.


COMMUNICATION NEW

  • All teachers are being asked to reach out to students (and parents) when academic progress in not being made. After five days and three attempts at communication, if there is no response, student names will be given to school administration to begin the proper attendance check/truancy filing procedures.       

  • All Liberty Union staff email accounts, follow this format: [email protected] 


OPERATIONS AND BUILDING ACCESS

  • All school buildings are now closed. Only those staff members that have responsibilities regarding essential district operations, cleaning facilities, or assisting with food service will have access.    

  • For access to the buildings, contact the following people to make an appointment:

  • All athletic facilities, including outdoor locations, are closed. 


IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CHROMEBOOKS

  • Students should be accessing their educational materials using their Google accounts. Even if students are using their own devices (PCs, laptops, MacBooks, phones, etc.), they should login to their Google accounts.

  • Logging into their Google accounts will help the district report attendance if this becomes a requirement. Also, the district filters are in place to keep our students safe while utilizing the Internet.  

  • Online meetings with teachers should take place using Google Meets.  Click HERE for a Google Meets Cheat Sheet



Sincerely,



Liberty Union-Thurston Local School District
