Good Evening Lammersville Parents,
Monday and Tuesday will be non-instructional days as staff are cleaning the schools and teachers are prepping for distance learning. Your student’s teacher will be contacting you by email on Tuesday to communicate the distance learning plan. Lesson delivery will begin Wednesday. We recognize that some students may not have internet access and may need their student issued chromebook. We will be providing assistance and more information will be coming soon.
Beginning Tuesday March 17th, students who receive free and reduced lunch will have the opportunity to receive school lunch from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Lammersville Elementary School, Questa Elementary School and Mountain House High School. More information will be coming from Food Services.
Lammersville staff are committed to providing distance learning during this challenging time. We thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to provide continuity of learning. The website and Aeries communication will continue to be utilized to provide updates.
This message will be repeated over the weekend.
Acting Director of Student Services

The 2019 novel Corona virus is a virus that was recently identified in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China, and is now being spread widely in other parts of mainland China. More cases are being
- Stay home when sick.
- Remain at home until fever has been gone for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines.
- Seek immediate medical care if symptoms become more severe, e.g., high fever or difficulty breathing.
- Use “respiratory etiquette”.
- Cover cough with a tissue or sleeve. See CDC’s Cover Your Cough page https://www.cdc.gov/flu/prevent/actions-prevent-flu.htm for multilingual posters and flyers, posted at the bottom of web page.
- Provide adequate supplies within easy reach, including tissues and no-touch trash cans.
- Wash hands frequently.
- Encourage hand washing by students and staff through education, scheduled time for hand washing, and the provision of adequate supplies.
- Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces.
- Separate sick students and staff from others until they can go home. When feasible, identify a “sick room” through which others do not regularly pass.
- Encourage flu vaccine for those who haven’t had it this season to reduce illnesses and absences on campus (but won’t prevent Coronavirus illnesses).
A note about face masks: face masks are most useful for preventing disease spread when they are worn by people who have symptoms. This is why people are asked to wear a mask at doctors’ offices and hospitals if they are coughing or sneezing.
