NWEA Testing for January (Winter)

Dear Families

After some more direction and clarification from the state and testing requirements, the district has decided to cancel NWEA testing for January (winter) as identified below:

NWEA in 4th and 5th grade for Reading and Math have been canceled for winter

NWEA in K-3 for Math has been canceled for winter

NWEA in K-3 for Reading will continue as scheduled because of the Read by Third grade legislature.

We appreciate your support and understanding.

Ms. Tiba

Enjoy the Break

Pop Tabs

Lindbergh Families

Last year, our Student Lighthouse team decided as part of their service learning project to implement a schoolwide initiative to collect pop-tabs and donate them to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Ann Arbor. Students across the year we encouraged to bring in and donated pop tabs. Collection Bins were placed in each classroom and during our monthly assemblies, a student from each class would empty their class bin into our school bin. This allowed the students to see how their individual contribution benefited us collectively and had a greater impact on our overall success. Our donated tabs are taken to a local recycling company and Ronald McDonald House receives money for each pound of tabs collected. It takes approximately 1,200 tabs to equal one pound. Through this recycling program, funds are raised to continue providing a “home away from home” for families in need.

Last month, Miss Polidori and Mrs. Baloga drove out to Ann Arbor to deliver the pop tabs. The donated tabs were appreciated and received a little bit of social media recognition.

Way to lead, Lindbergh Flyers!!!

COVID-19 Case Information @ Lindbergh

DATE: November 17, 2020

TO: Lindbergh Elementary Staff and Students

FROM: Zainah Tiba, Principal

RE: COVID-19 Case Identification 

A confirmed case of coronavirus (Covid-19) has been identified at school. We are working closely with Wayne County Health Department to identify exposures and prevent further cases. This letter is informational only; no further action is required for you at this time.  If you have not been contacted by the district nurse or your building administrator, you are not considered to be a close-contact to the positive individual.

I want to thank all staff and students for following through social distancing measures and adhering to all other guidelines, like wearing masks at all times and not being in close contact with anyone for 15 minutes or more. I want to also remind all staff and students that we need to respect everyone’s privacy at all times. Your safety and privacy are important to us. Again, we thank all of you for adhering to all guidelines. 

The virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly from person to person, through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes or talks. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Spread is more likely when people are less than six feet from each other for at least 15 minutes. A person who is a close contact of someone who is infected with COVID-19 may experience COVID-19 symptoms typically within two to fourteen days after a person is exposed. 

The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar in children and adults. Symptoms can include: Fever (>100.4oF), cough, shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, runny or stuffy nose, loss of taste or smell, abdominal pain. 

There are many things that can be done to keep our schools, homes, and communities “COVID-19 free” and protect ourselves and loved ones: 

  1. Children and adults should stay home when ill. 
  2. Washing hands often with soap and running warm water for at least 20 seconds. 
  3. If a hand washing station is not available, use hand sanitizer properly. Gels, rubs, and hand wipes must contain at least 60% alcohol. Dispose of wipes in the trash after use. 
  4. Practice Good Respiratory Etiquette (cover a cough with elbow versus hand). 
  5. Follow guidance for wearing a face covering and social distancing. 

If you have questions, please contact Wayne County Health Department at 734-727-7078. 

Following the guidance of the MI Safe Schools Roadmap, the school has been disinfected. This includes spraying classrooms, hallways, locker rooms, and common areas as needed with a sanitizer, along with other methods of disinfection.
