Dear Lane School Families,

Dear Parents
Thank you for your dedication and support.  School/learning does not happen in any year without you, but that is abundantly true this year.  Parents are at times juggling a job, managing a household, supporting extended family and friends, and providing a structured learning environment for their child (or children). The level of demand on you is beyond a superhero level of ability. Please take a moment and appreciate yourself. I know we do. 
Our team is here to support and find ways to make this manageable for you and your family. Please do not hesitate to connect with us to problem solve supports.  We have a dedicated team that is willing to get creative and think outside the box on solutions. 
I am including some resources and ideas in this letter in hopes to give you all some more ideas.  Please take from it what works but don’t feel obligated to incorporate these ideas. 

Westmoreland Staff Highlight:

We would like to introduce Justine Sutton.  Justine has been working with us as a Lane School IA for several years.  Justine has a dedication and passion for working with youth to help them achieve their full potential.  She enjoys horseback riding and spending time with her kiddos when she is not at work.  Justine is an energetic and caring person who is always willing to step up and help.  The students and families she supports will experience first hand the dedication she has to her team.  Justine is an integral staff member at Lane School and we are so lucky to have her on our team. Keep up the great work, Justine.

Dear Lane School Families,

I am excited to welcome new and returning students to Lane School! The staff and I look forward to helping your child develop the necessary skills to be successful when they return to their home school. The first day of school for our K – 8th program will be Monday, September 21st.  We will be starting the year in a comprehensive distance learning model.

Our team will be reaching out to you to schedule a meeting to discuss how we will best meet your needs in the coming year. Every student will be provided with a chromebook to complete school work. We will contact you to schedule device pick up before the first day of school.

I look forward to seeing the excellent work our students and staff do this year. 

Check your mail box for registration information!

We strongly value parent support and look forward to working in partnership to help your child be successful. If you have questions or need additional information, please contact the Lane School Office at 541-463-8500.

Sincerely,

Justin Radabaugh, Lane School Principal
