SMITH'S COMMUNITY REWARDS
Thank you to all of you who have connected your Smith's Rewards card to Los Alamos Middle School. We saw an increase last quarter! If you would consider connecting your card to LAMS while you have a child here, that would make a huge impact. So many things happen with the money we receive from Smith's.
You can easily connect your card to LAMS at: https://www.smithsfoodanddrug.com/account/communityrewards/
Thank you for considering this way to give. :)

COVID-19 UPDATE SCHOOL CLOSURE MARCH 16-APRIL3
The Secretary of Education just announced that all New Mexico schools will be closed for three weeks beginning Monday March 16, 2020.
Dr. Steinhaus is carefully tracking information about coronavirus (COVID-19) and we will all work hard to keep you informed about the latest developments.
Look at the LAPS homepage - https://sites.google.com/laschools.net/laps-and-covid-19/home and note the light purple box on the right side of the screen called "COVID-19". This page will have all the latest information.
We have also been asked to distribute this flyer, https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LVPLBUqNIcj9cAtBCqM2PKqZ9VJx-Klg/view
STEPS PARENTS CAN TAKE
Keep your child home when sick.
Encourage your child to wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water is not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
Remind your child to avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
Remind your child to cover their mouth and nose with the inside of their elbow when sneezing or coughing, and wash hands afterwards.
Disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects such as toys and doorknobs.
Wipe down Chromebooks and other electronic devices daily.
Remind your child to not share food, hats, water, etc.
Encourage your child to maintain a safe distance.
Send a labeled water bottle to school and remember to clean it daily.
Reminder: Allergy season is beginning so don't assume sneezing is "sick." Cover your coughs and sneezes. Wash your hands.


LAMS COUNSELOR AVAILABLE DURING THE BREAK
Hi,
My name is Jenn Neil and I am the 8th grade counselor and also a social worker. I will be available by phone, text, or email to your student and to you throughout the next three weeks.
If you are having trouble accessing services like groceries and other necessities, let me see if I can help.
If you or your student are anxious about COVID-19, I’ll be glad to listen to your concerns and hopefully make you feel better.
Students, if you just need to talk to a counselor, feel free to text or email me. I'm here for you.
My passion is helping people. That’s why I became a social worker. I may not be able to fix things for you but I can listen and I can help you explore your options.
Text me at (505) 690-7319. My email is j.neil@laschools.net.
If you call me, please leave a message.
Be healthy and safe,
Jenn
