Need to Know

  • Supporting in-person learning for Lindbergh students is our top priority for the 2021-22 school year. We know from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines that being fully vaccinated or wearing face coverings properly will prevent the need for quarantine if students or staff are exposed to COVID-19 at school. Simply stated, these two steps allow your student the best chance for a more normal, in-person learning experience this year.

    Our district will continue to remain flexible as we monitor cases and community spread on a school-by-school basis. We are thankful for your continued support and partnership as we work to provide a safe learning environment for all.

    Together, we can take steps to support in-person learning for students, in a safe, healthy school environment. All of these measures are designed with your student’s academic, social, physical and mental wellbeing in mind.

    Staying Well

This note must state that the symptom they have is their baseline and they do not require exclusion from school. If you have a note on file from your doctor that is dated within the last 12 months, you do not need to submit another note before the start of school.
