Dear Parents/Guardians of Logansport Students, 

Logansport School Administration Staff and area Superintendents from the immediate outlying schools met to discuss plans for the coming days in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are utilizing guidance from the Indiana Department of Education, direction from Governor Holcomb, information from the Center for Disease Control, our county health departments, and other guidance being provided to Indiana’s K-12 public schools to make the most informed decisions possible at this time.  


The decision has been made to cancel school for all student’s March 16, 2020 - April 3, 2020. This includes all sporting and extra-curricular events, practices, and any additional school activities in which students would be involved.  Logansport staff will work on Monday, March 16th to do extensive in preparation for potential eLearning days. Logansport Schools will be cancelled with no eLearning required of students (up to 20 “waived” days have been issued by the state at this time) during the following dates: 

March 16-20: School Cancelled (No eLearning) 
March 23-27: Spring Break  
March 30-April 3: School Cancelled (No eLearning) 


Students were informed today near dismissal time regarding the plans for this 
timeframe. All LCSC students are being sent home with their student laptops in 
preparation for the use of eLearning. We are working to provide laptop chargers for 
students K-5. In the meantime, you can use a USB-C laptop charger to charge their 
device (a phone charger cannot be used for this). More information on laptop charger 
pickup will be announced at a later date. On Monday, March 16th, parents will be able 
to pick up student medication between 9:00 am-3:00. If you are not able to pick up medication during this time, please contact your child’s school. We know many 
students rely on LCSC Food Services for meals. We are working diligently with our 
Food Service Staff to set a time for meal pickup. Once meal distribution is arranged, 
we will communicate that information with our families.  


This is a very fluid situation and we will continue to update more information as we are notified. We will communicate to families as to plans beyond April 3rd at an 
appropriate time in the future. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we 
attempt to navigate this extremely difficult situation. Updated communication efforts 
and additional information about COVID-19 can be found on our website

Estimados padres / tutores de los alumnos en las escuelas de Logansport, 


El personal de administración escolar de Logansport y los superintendentes del área de las escuelas públicas inmediatas se reunieron para establecer los planes para los próximos días en respuesta a la pandemia de COVID-19. Estamos utilizando orientación del Departamento de Educación de Indiana, la dirección del Gobernador Holcomb, información del Centro de Control de Enfermedades, los departamentos de salud de nuestro condado y otra orientación que se proporciona a las escuelas públicas K-12 de Indiana para tomar las decisiones más informadas posibles en este momento. 


Se tomó la decisión de cancelar las clases para todos los alumnos del 16 de marzo 2020 al 3 de abril del 2020. Esto incluye todos los eventos deportivos y extracurriculares, prácticas y cualquier actividad escolar adicional en la que los estudiantes participen. El personal escolar de Logansport trabajará el lunes 16 de marzo para preparar posibles días de eLearning. Las escuelas de Logansport cancelarán sus clases sin necesidad de trabajo eLearning para los estudiantes (el estado ha emitido hasta 20 días “exentos” por el momento) durante las siguientes fechas: 

-20 de marzo: Clases canceladas (No eLearning)
23-27 de marzo: Vacaciones de primavera
del 30 de marzo al 3 de abril: Clases canceladas (No aprendizaje electrónico)


Se les informo a los estudiantes hoy cerca del horario de salida con respecto a los 
planes para este período de tiempo. Todos los alumnos de la corporación escolar de Logansport están siendo enviados a casa con sus computadoras portátiles estudiantiles 
en preparación para el uso de eLearning. Estamos trabajando para proporcionar 
cargadores de computadoras portátiles para los estudiantes de Kinder-5to. Mientras 
tanto, puede usar un cargador de computadora portátil USB-C para cargar su 
dispositivo (no se puede usar un cargador de teléfono para este dispositivo). Más información sobre la distribución de cargadores para la computadora portátil. El lunes 
16 de marzo, los padres podrán recoger cualquier medicamento que tenga su hijo en la enfermería de la escuela, entre las 9:00 a.m. y las 3:00 p.m. Si no puede recoger medicamentos durante este tiempo, comuníquese con la escuela de su hijo. Sabemos 
que muchos estudiantes confían en los Servicios de Alimentos de la corporación para 
las comidas. Estamos trabajando diligentemente con nuestro personal de servicio de alimentos y establecer un horario para distribuir algunos alimentos. Una vez que se programe la distribución de la comida, se les comunicara esa información.  

ta es una situación delicada y continuaremos actualizando más información a medida 
que se nos notifique. Nos comunicaremos con las familias sobre cualquier plan para 
después del 3 de abril en caso de ser necesario. Apreciamos su paciencia y flexibilidad mientras intentamos navegar esta situación extremadamente difícil. Se puede encontrar información más actualizada sobre COVID-19 en nuestro sitio web lcsc.k12.in.us 


Atentamente, 

Michele Starkey
