LCMSD Updates: Tier II, Travel Advisory, & Congrats Dr. Elliot


Dear LCMSD Community,

I hope this reaches you well (and dry!). Please see our announcements below:

Marin Moves to Tier II/Red 

Due to increased COVID-19 positive cases in our State, the Governor’s Office and the California Department of Public Health have announced that over 40 counties will be moving back to more restrictive tiers. Marin has been moved back to Tier 2 (Red – Substantial). This change will be effective on Wednesday, November 18th. We have updated our website and will be reverting back to the Tier I and II decision tree regarding absences and illness. 

We understand that protocols are strict and maybe more strict then some would agree with. Please know that we are following Marin County Public Health and the information they have sent to us. Additionally, please know that our work collectively as parents, staff, and a community to follow these protocols increases our ability to stay open. So if your child presents with symptoms, please keep them home. While it is an inconvenience, we have a system set up for your child to continue receiving instruction through live streaming. Thanks for your continued support. 

The decision tree has also impacted our governance team; therefore, for tomorrow’s Board Meeting we will have to switch our format from in-person to online to conform to public health’s protocols. Here is the link for tomorrow’s meeting at 6:00. 

Travel Advisory

Please see this travel advisory information issued by the California Department of Public Health. Persons arriving in California from other states or countries, including returning California residents, should practice self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival. 

Congratulations Dr. Patty Flynn Elliot

Neil Cummins Principal, Dr. Flynn Elliot, successfully defended her dissertation today through the University of Southern California’s Doctor of Education Program. She has spent close to three years engaging in this demanding program and demonstrating her commitment to lifelong learning. Her study focused on how teacher self-reflection practices influence school connectedness for students. Congratulations (and Fight On) Dr. Flynn Elliot!!

Take care,

Brett Geithman, Ed.D.
