Students from Encinal High School video production class will be on site next week on Tuesday, May 23rd, to take videos of our school in action.  They will be producing a documentary about the Board meeting on Tuesday night, and the effect of the decision on our school.  I am sending out an opt out form that you can use to tell me that you do not want your child to be part of the project.  Please find the letter attached.  You can also find a hard copy in the office.  Again, you only need to turn in the form if you don't want your child to be part of the film. 

 

Thank you.

Jesse Woodward

Dear Lum families,

 

On May 23rd the AUSD Board will vote on whether or not to close Lum. Before that vote, the district decided to survey our Lum community to find out where families would like their children to go IF the Board votes to close Lum. The purpose of the survey, that was sent out to all Lum families, is to give parents a voice in the relocation plan, IF one is necessary.

 

It is especially IMPORTANT THAT FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN GOING INTO 4TH AND 5TH GRADE NEXT YEAR FILL OUT THE SURVEY.

 

In the event of Lum closure, we have the option of setting up a new 4th and 5th grade program in the Wood Annex (the space that was used by ACLC until a few years ago). This would be separate from the middle school, with a separate lunch and bell schedule, and would let the 4th and 5th graders stay together, with fewer transitions, former Principal Cammie Harris, and the continued option to walk to school. Once the 4th and 5th graders graduate, (in 2 years) Wood would return to a middle school 6-8 again. 

 

Please vote for this option if it appeals to you.

 

If you do not vote for it, it’s very likely that the WOOD OPTION WILL NOT HAPPEN.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me. 

DISTRICT NEEDS RESPONSES BY 5/19.  

 

Thanks, 

Kelly Scott

Structural engineers have determined that Lum Elementary School may not be safe for long-term use because the soil on the campus would be subject to significant liquefaction during a strong earthquake. You can find more information on this web page. The public is also invited to a special Board of Education meeting on April 28 at 6:30 pm at Wood Middle School where this issue will be discussed.
