Welcome Home

We Can't Mask Our ExcitementGreetings Students, Parents, and Community Stakeholders.

 The unusual trends over the past year have placed us in spaces unimaginable and certainly unforeseen.

April 26, 2021 is the first day of school with students since our closure on March 11, 2020. 

We have missed the engagement with our students, families and community members and we are looking forward to seeing those we serve.

 Please understand and be ready for the COVID Safe Protocols in place for your return.

  • Mask Wearing is Required
  • Hand Washing and / or sanitization is expected
  • Social Distancing will be practiced

 These are the simple safe facts of life that will be practiced and followed for all parties on campus.

Saludos, estudiantes, padres y partes interesadas de la comunidad.

Los acontecimientos inusuales del pasado año nos han colocado en espacios inimaginables y ciertamente improvistos.  El primer día de clases en persona es el 26 de abril desde el cierre el 11 de marzo de 2020. Nos ha hecho falta la interacción con nuestros estudiantes, familias y miembros de la comunidad y estamos contentos de verlos y servirles.

Por favor comprenda y esté listo para seguir los protocolos del COVID-19 cuando vuelvan a la escuela.

  • Se requiere el uso de mascarilla
  • Lavado de manos y mantenerlas desinfectadas es imperativo
  • Las reglas de distanciamiento social están en efecto

Estos son las reglas simples de seguridad que seguiremos en la escuela.

Su entendimiento y cooperación es y será de significado para el regreso a la escuela.

¡Gracias por anticipado y esperamos servirles!

  • Online for $5 at https://store.lantabus.com/ - select the product “Emergency Pass”.  The pass is then mailed to the rider and is good for unlimited rides for 31 days after the first use. Credit card sales only.
  • Through the mobile ticketing app Token Transit for $5.  Token Transit is available in the Apple or Google App store or at https://tokentransit.com/ - once the app is active on your phone, the rider can select LANTA as the system, then rider type “Emergency”.   They will then be able to purchase a 31-Day pass for $5 which is good for unlimited rides for 31 days after activated.  Credit card sales only.  Students could purchase the pass directly through their own phone or parents or others can also set up their own account with Token Transit, purchase passes and send a pass digitally to their child’s cell phone number.  The student would then be able to open and use that pass from their phone.
