School Nurse

Congratulations to our Senior class and families!  We are so proud of you all and wish you much success, happiness and wellness as you launch into the greater community and world! Suggestion to college-bound students- when you get on campus, find and visit the Student Health Center. You will find they have a wealth of programs and resources. Make plans to get your fall flu shot there so you know where it is.

COVID- All I’m going to say right now is that you can order 8 more Covid tests here.

I hope everyone has a happy and healthy summer.  I’m going to continue to encourage you to eat healthy and be active. Here is a great video on Summertime plant-based eating. No matter how you eat, it’s important for EVERYONE to include LOTS of fruits and vegetables. I hope you find the video inspiring to create and prepare great meals (adapt to your needs) with your family.

Please be in touch with me to discuss any medical, health, or wellness concerns.
Stay healthy and be well,
Dvora Citron, RN, MS

LPIE

Dear LPIE Families and Friends,
 
As the end of the academic year approaches, we have ample reason for gratitude. Our students returned to campus full time and successfully navigated the school year, we celebrated a joyful 40th Anniversary Gala this spring, and we are well on our way to rebuilding a stronger community after nearly two years of the pandemic. I am so inspired by the resilience of our students, teachers, and staff.
 
And I’m grateful for you. Thank you for the many contributions you make as a part of our extended LPIE family to support all our students. Your gift to LPIE produces lasting effects – in classrooms, theaters, science labs, and on the fields. Your gift helps sustain the academic programs that support our chorus and band performers, our student-athletes’ awards, AP and Merit Scholars, and seniors who earn college scholarships. Last year, support from donors helped maintain a dynamic classroom environment even when we were learning from home.
 
I also want to acknowledge the inspiration and excitement you helped generate in support of LPIE this year. Your partnership has encouraged thousands of alumni, families, and community members to engage in giving, resulting in a 17% increase in donor participation in the 2021-22 school year. I am proud of the ways in which our community came together, and I am pleased to share with you our annual report coming in July, that celebrates the impact of your generosity.
 
Thank you for your vital partnership, which continues to keep LPIE’s light shining brightly.
 
Have a safe and wonderful summer!
 
Danielle Gallagher
LPIE President 2021-2022
