Principal Greg Wilson

Greetings Lochburn Families,

We can’t thank you enough for your support of our students as we all dove in this spring into on-line learning. Since March we have had nearly all our students participate in our online classes. It has been encouraging to see this level of participation, and amazing to reflect on the amount of learning among our students and staff that took place for these Teams classes to run effectively. I believe that the lessons learned will benefit our entire learning community for future instruction.

Below are some important upcoming dates.

First, the last day of instruction across the district is June 17th. However, the last day of core class instruction at Lochburn is Tuesday, June 16th. Let’s encourage our students to push hard and finish strong for these final few weeks of learning! We want to see all our students do their best work right through the end of instruction.

Also, Lochburn will be hosting a Drive Through 8th Grade Promotion on Monday, June 16th from 4 – 6 pm. We want to see all our 8th grade families with our 8th grade students to drive through our bus ramp! Cars will enter and exit just as our busses would on a regular school day. We will have three stations set up at which we will sell yearbooks, distribute promotion / honor roll certificates and recognize each student with a candy lei, made by our own Lochburn staff and Communities in Schools! Each of these stations will be accessible while staying inside your vehicle, and maintaining social distancing. As you pull away Lochburn staff will be waving and wishing each family and student a wonderful summer break!

Finally, on June 17th beginning at 1:00 Lochburn staff will caravan through our neighborhoods to greet students and wish all our students a wonderful summer break. This event will last about 2 hours as our teachers wind their way through our neighborhoods. Below is our driving schedule!

Although we do not yet know what the 20 – 21 school year might look like, know that we will continue to seek family feedback and we will continue to support our students and staff do their best work and be their best self. There will be a survey seeking your input for the re-opening of school in the fall of 20 – 21. Please be sure your voice is heard, and you participate in this survey. You can expect this survey the week of June 1st – 5th.

At Lochburn, it is our mission to ensure all student see themselves as success and are college bound.

Sincerely, Greg Wilson – Principal
