Good News About Accelerated Reader!

The Renaissance AR program is now available from home! Students simply log onto ClassLink, log into their Renaissance account, and take the quiz just like at school!

Please keep in mind that, though this is not a standardized test, good test-taking rules still apply. Students should not use help from adults or others or look through the book to find answers. While we are in quarantine mode, integrity will count more than ever!

The clock is still ticking on the Million Words contest! Students who pass ARs for one million words or more are automatically entered into the drawing on the last day of school for amazing prizes purchased by our amazing PTO!

READ, READ, READ Jessup Jaguars!

Flu Update 1/13/20

Hello Jessup Families,

The flu is now reported in all 50 states. The CDC estimates 10 million cases, 4800 deaths and 870,000 hospitalizations.

How the Flu Spreads - Person to Person

People with flu can spread it to others up to about 6 feet away. Most experts think that flu viruses spread mainly by droplets made when people with flu cough, sneeze or talk. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. Less often, a person might get flu by touching a surface or object that has flu virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.

When Flu Spreads

People with flu are most contagious in the first three to four days after their illness begins.  Most healthy adults may be able to infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick. Children and some people with weakened immune systems may  pass the virus for longer than 7 days.

Symptoms can begin about 2 days (but can range from 1 to 4 days)  after the virus enters the body. That means that you may be able to pass on the flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. Some people can be infected with the flu virus but have no symptoms. During this time, those people may still spread the virus to others.

Period of Contagiousness

You may be able to pass on flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick.

  • People with flu are most contagious in the first 3-4 days after their illness begins.
  • Some otherwise healthy adults may be able to infect others beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick.
  • Some people, especially young children and people with weakened immune systems, might be able to infect others with flu viruses for an even longer time.

Message from Our Principal

3 months ago

Jessup Family and Friends,

As you know, LCSD1 continues to meet with state and local health officials and has deemed it in our best interest to remain in Adapted Learning status for the remainder of the school year. This means school is still in session through June 3rd, but teachers will be teaching, and students will be learning remotely. I am thankful Jessup is a small, closely knit neighborhood school that operates like a family. We do our best to take care of each other. The entire staff is rallying around the needs of our students and families with health and safety as our top priority.

We are making every effort to continue providing positive, productive learning opportunities during the building closure, resulting from the global pandemic. We are fortunate to have incredibly devoted parents, students who love learning, and teachers who are lifelong learners and are willing to put in extra time and effort to ensure students will thrive in our new school setting. We have a strong support staff and those in leadership positions at LCSD1 have been working extremely long hours to address all aspects of public education, make decisions for the greater good of all, and to allocate funds and resources to make the best of an unpredictable situation. We have been offered differentiated and asynchronous professional development to meet our individual and specific needs. Like families and students, all of us have jumped out of our comfort zones, changed how we communicate, stay connected, build and maintain relationships, and how we facilitate teaching and learning.

Currently, all teachers have Canvas pages functioning as their digital classrooms. Most students have access to technology at home, while others are receiving the same learning opportunities through hard copy learning packets. Whether online or offline, teachers, paras, and other support staff continue to stay in contact with students throughout each week by recording lessons, providing homework help, giving feedback, and reteaching when necessary using formats like Teams, Remind, and cell phones. We are all grateful for parents, siblings, friends, grandparents, and other relatives who are at home partnering with us, so students have the best chance to learn at the highest levels.

Two years ago, Jessup updated our mission and vision statement to include fostering grit and began purposefully and intentionally teaching to develop growth mindsets. Even during a pandemic, we are seeing academic growth! Bravo Jessup Jaguars! You have grit and amazing work ethics! Stay motivated!

Parents, please continue to share any needs you might have with your child’s teacher, so we are able to make necessary accommodations to assist you throughout fourth quarter. I am in the office from 8:00 a.m. to noon, Monday through Thursday and can be reached at any time through email. Please let me know how I can help. Thank you for partnering with us and for sharing your amazing children!

Stay healthy, well, and engaged,

Dr. Leiseth
