March 16, 2020 Health Update

Posted by Dr. Steve Buuck on Mar 18, 2020 2:12:04 PM

March 16, 2020-Health UPdate

Dear Faith Family,
 
As you likely heard from Governor Steve Sisolak at his press conference on March 15, 2020, all Nevada K-12 schools are to remain closed until, at minimum, April 6, 2020.  Since our Easter break begins April 6, 2020,  Faith Lutheran students will not return to campus until at least April 14, 2020, the day we are currently scheduled to return from our break.  If that date gets extended, we will let you know once that decision is made.
 
Online instruction begins Wednesday, March 18, 2020 and will go until at least April 3, 2020.  A video will be sent to all parents and students by tomorrow afternoon with specifics on how this remote learning will work.  For us, online learning is more than just academic progress.  We are putting measures in place to make sure that our students are supported completely through this process.
  1. Our faculty and staff were blessed to begin our day with Dr. Shadaba Asad, the Medical Director for infectious diseases at UMC. She graciously provided an hour for a presentation on this newest coronavirus and Q & A.
  2. The Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association (NIAA) has required that schools are not to compete in games or contests, conduct practices, hold meetings, or allow any school facilities to be used by any NIAA athlete or coach until further notice.  All middle school sports are following that same directive and are postponed until further notice.
  3. All school activities are postponed until further notice including clubs, arts, and student life events.  Beginning March 18, school events that are officially cancelled will be listed on our website.  Rest assured, our campus is safe and clean; we are hoping that the mitigation strategies we are taking at Faith Lutheran will help slow the further spread of this virus.
  4. The Shield Store on campus is closed until students return.
  5. The Thrift Store on Rainbow is currently open.
  6. Beginning Wednesday, March 18, school office hours will be from 8 am until 3:30 pm.
  7. All coronavirus communication and updates can be found by clicking here.
As you talk with your children: remain calm and reassuring; avoid language that might blame others and lead to stigmas; pay attention to what your children see or hear from media outlets and social media outlets; provide information that is honest and accurate; teach them everyday actions to reduce the spread of germs.
 
One thing is certain; we cannot predict the future.  We are trying to do our part in mitigating the risk to the Faith Family, Las Vegas, Nevada, the United States, and our world.
 
Until our next correspondence,
 
Steven J. Buuck, Ph.D.
Chief Executive Officer

Diverse Classes Enrich Curriculum

Posted by Dr. Steve Buuck on Jan 23, 2020 10:45:32 AM

Why are the numbers 186 and 78 of interest to Faith Lutheran students?  Because this year high school students have 186 classes from which to choose, and middle school students have 78 classes from which to choose.  Each student only gets to choose 8 per year so middle school students get to take 24 of the 78 offered in their careers, and high school students get to take 32 of the 186 in their careers.  So many choices, so little time!
