What will be the school’s role in COVID-19 contact tracing?
Schools should work collaboratively with public health by:

1. Being proactive in contacting NH DHHS when a person is confirmed with COVID-19 in your school community.

2. Assist in identifying those who had close contacts (within 6 feet for 10 minutes or more) with the person confirmed with COVID-19. This might include sharing seating charts, attendance records and bus rosters.

3. Assist in providing contact information for those identified as close contacts (including name, date of birth and phone number of parents/guardians).

4. Communicate with your school community. NH DHHS will assist you in the development of these communications.

This is the link to the Department of Health’s FAQ document – that is very comprehensive.

You’re invited to shop LMS's Scholastic Book Fair online from Monday January 25th - Sunday, February 7th! All purchases benefit our school and connect students with new books, favorite characters, complete series, and more. Due to the challenges of this school year, the book fair will be exclusively online. Your student will likely have the opportunity to visit and explore the virtual book fair during the school day and may even bring home a wishlist, however, all online ordering will be done at home. While it is certainly exciting when our students have the opportunity to hold the book in their hands, there are definitely some benefits to having our book fair virtual this year:
 • Access to MORE BOOKS, including new releases, best sellers, and value packs
 • Access to all reading levels - perfect for every member of the family
 • All orders ship direct to home
 • FREE shipping on book-only orders over $25*
