Breaking news for Lagunitas Families from LEAP! A donor advised fund at the Marin Community Foundation is matching all donations up to $10,000. This includes parent pledge. Anything you give to support our kids will be doubled! With this match we can bridge LEAP’s $30k budget deficit and continue to fund: Spanish, art, music, Teacher Aides, teacher supplies, field trips & Middle School P.E. Donate $200 or more and get an organic farm box and a cheese slate with local cheese. PLEDGE TODAY (or increase your pledge). The suggested pledge is $720 per kid per year (or $60 per month), but we know it's been a hard year. Give what you can. $10, $20, $100 or more. It all helps! Don’t forget to ask your employer to match your donation. And Sign up for a Farm Fresh to You Box - 10% goes back to the school. Pledge, donate + order a farm box here: www.leap4education.org

Dear Lagunitas School District Community: I am happy to tell you that we are planning to open school for in-person learning 5 days per week with full class cohort sizes and a partial day schedule starting April 12. (Schedule is being drafted) We are skipping the board- approved Phase 2 (hybrid) and going directly to Phase 3. This was made possible by new guidance from the Health Department as we move into the Orange Tier. (A remote learning program will be available for students who need it.) Much gratitude to our teachers for their efforts today and over the last year to bring more kids back on campus safely. A lot of work has gone into this!
Important news for our families with high school age kids. Tam Union High School District just announced that they will be returning to 5-day per week in-person schedule starting on April 13. ( A similar plan is on the Lagunitas Board agenda today at 5:00. )
"Reportable action was taken in Closed Session. In regards to the Public Employee Discipline/Dismissal/Release, by a vote of 4 to 1 with 0 abstentions, the Board took action to non-reelect Employee ID #100896. Report Roll Call votes: 4 ayes (Sloan, Bohman, Rebscher, Sanders). 1 No-Klausner

IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION ABOUT RE-OPENING SCHOOL. The Lagunitas School District will not be allowed to open for in-person instruction before February 22 and only after Marin County has been in the Red Tier for 5 days. Media reports over the last 24 hours that all Marin Schools are allowed to open are not correct. We confirmed with Marin's Rapid Response Team (County Office of Education and Public Health) this morning at 9:48 that we are not allowed to open at this time. Please watch this space for further updates.
