    Dear Lane Families,

    We welcomed a small number of students back to our building last week for our first in person student services. This program is the result of extensive operational planning to ensure that students and staff are safe and well informed. As you may have heard in the news or from other PPS communications, we are planning to enlarge our in-person instruction to include all students by mid-April. We continue to maintain an intense focus on safety and training as we plan for this move to a blend of in-person and online instruction. This "hybrid" of in-person and online instruction will allow us to welcome all students back to school while limiting the number of students who are in the school building at one time. You will be receiving a survey soon to allow you to share your thoughts about the prospects of welcoming students back to school. If you have students in a PPS elementary school, you have likely already received this survey. I will send more specific information as our plans develop.

This is important information will guide us as we plan for the future of the school.
