CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) Update

 


School Closure

In order to assist with the arrest of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 spread, Logos Prep is not holding central classroom sessions. Instead, students are participating in remote learning until at least April 10th. School offices are closed until further notice.

Two significant scheduling adjustments are being made in order to help reclaim the lost week of learning:

1. There will be no spring finals for Secondary students. The last day of classes for Secondary will be May 8th. 
2. Standardized testing for grades 1 - 6 will be postponed or possibly cancelled. 

All student activities are suspended until otherwise announced. This includes athletic contests and practices. 

We encourage everyone to stay tuned to this page periodically for additional information and updates and stay alert to email messages.

 

One of our key habits of integrity is self-control. 2 Timothy 1:7 is a wonderful reminder to us about the application of self-control over fear. “For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”

Concerns for the safety and well-being for all members of the Logos Prep community continue to be and will always remain our highest priority. We ask for your continued prayer and partnership through this evolving situation.

Logos Prep Families,

Dear Parents and Students,

We pray this email finds you enjoying extra time together. Though none of us anticipated such a disruption to our daily routine, as a school community we are ready to excel under our new circumstances. As parents, students, and teachers in a University-Model® school, the idea of remote learning isn’t new. Each of you already know the best practices of using a satellite classroom. Learning to bring the central classroom into the home will take a bit of adjustment, but we are ready! 

For their part, teachers have been in training and are now working with their new tools in order to deliver excellent instruction to your home via online resources. As they are learning to use new tools, parents and students will be called on to do the same. Understanding there must be grace and patience given on both sides, we are expecting things to go relatively smoothly. Policies and practices have been put in place to ensure educational value without undue stress. At this time, we are planning as if we will be learning remotely for the remainder of the school year. However, we will be able to immediately adjust back to our standard procedures should the opportunity be made available.

Online learning will begin Monday, March 23rd. In order to prepare, we ask that you do these things now. Go to online.logosprep.org. Under the Students & Parents section, there is a list of tools/software. These resources are going to be the way that your students will continue their education for the time being. Here you will find user guides on Gmail, Google Classroom, Docs/Sheets/Slides, and other tools that your teachers will be adding to their classrooms. Please take time to go through these if you are unfamiliar with them in order to best set up your student(s) for success. Your student will be able to access their Google Classroom beginning on Sunday, March 22nd. For technical support, please email our tech team at helpdesk@logosprep.org. 

When you log on to Google Classroom your student’s classes will not be made available (unless your student(s)’ teacher is already using Google Classroom) until Friday. After this, teachers will start to begin posting for students beginning on Monday, March 23rd. 

As a school, email will be our primary means of communication. Teachers will communicate via Google Classroom and email. Each teacher will define parameters for availability. Please check your email daily for updates from the school and individual classroom teachers. The school will be closed to foot traffic, but there will be a skeleton crew manning the phones and addressing specific in-person needs. Phones will be answered between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. on Monday - Thursday. No visitors will be accepted without an appointment. Should you have technology questions, you may call during office hours, or use the technology help link found at online.logosprep.org.

Later today, you will receive an email from your grade level principal with any academic information specific to your age group. Tomorrow, you can expect a newsletter detailing plans for cancelation or adjustment to all of our non-academic events and plans. This newsletter should answer many of your non-academic questions. Once that newsletter is released, if you still have unanswered questions, please reach out to us via email. We are here for you! We are thinking of you - praying for you - and believing in you!!

Logos Prep Families,

Following FBISD, Logos Prep will participate in remote learning until at least April 10th. Teachers have been preparing and will be ready to continue offering a quality education in an online format. After this week, office hours will be from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Monday - Thursday with a skeleton crew. We realize some students will need their books and other items possibly left in their lockers. Students may come by the main campus between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. this week only to retrieve them. All other visitors must be by appointment only.

Thank you,

Logos Prep Families,

In order to assist with the arrest of the Coronavirus/COVID-19 spread, Logos Prep will not be holding central classroom sessions for a minimum of two weeks following our originally scheduled spring break. Spring break will be extended through March 20. Logos Prep faculty will use the week of March 16-20 to prepare for online course delivery to begin March 23.  Courses will remain online as long as this is the most prudent decision in keeping students and staff safe. 

Two significant scheduling adjustments are being made in order to help reclaim the lost week of learning:

1.There will be no spring finals for Secondary students. The last day of classes for Secondary will be May 8th. 
2.Standardized testing for grades 1 - 6 will be postponed or possibly cancelled. 

All student activities are suspended until otherwise announced. This includes athletic contests and practices. 

Faculty and staff will receive an email with further expectations and plans for preparations during the week of March 16. 

We encourage everyone to visit our COVID-19 website (http://logosprep.org/my-logos-prep) periodically for additional information and updates and stay alert to email messages.

Logos Prep Families, 

As Spring Break quickly approaches, we hope you have plans to rest and enjoy time with family and friends. However, before you log out, please take time to read the following important information. 

As continued news coverage of the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) appears around the world and in the United States, we want our Logos Prep community to know that we are carefully monitoring this situation through reports from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the Fort Bend County Health Department.To date, there are few cases of coronavirus locally. However, we should all exercise caution and take preventative measures, especially while traveling. During Spring Break we know many of you will be visiting family or traveling to other places. We urge you to stay informed of ongoing developments of the spread of the virus and encourage you to monitor CDC updates. As you search for information about COVID-19, check out the following link: About Coronavirus.

If you or any family members are traveling outside of the country or to any areas where there is a potential exposure, it is imperative that you notify a school nurse prior to your departure. Click here to complete the notification.This will assist us with prior knowledge of possible exposure issues and help us maintain a safe environment upon students' return to school.

Please be assured that once we return, Logos Prep has plans in place to continue with an appropriate response to COVID-19. Should a temporary school closure occur, a plan for continued learning with modified instruction as well as information regarding further actions being taken to keep our campus safe will be communicated.

Thank you for partnering with us to help promote health and wellness at Logos Prep. Concerns for the safety and well-being for all members of the Logos Prep community continue to be and will always remain our highest priority. 

 Travel safely and enjoy your time away!

From The Counselor

Precious Logos Prep Families,

While we are all closely monitoring our physical health at this time, let us not forget the importance of our mental health as well. Our children of all ages are feeling the anxiety and stress that comes with disruption and uncertainty. We as adults are also experiencing additional stress, and I want to encourage all of you to take the time to take care of yourselves as well.
