This year’s Parent Teacher Conferences will be delivered virtually via Google Meets. Due to security changes Google has implemented specifically for Google Meet within a school district, you will not be able to join the Google Meet session for your child’s conference without having a Google account. If you already have a Google account (such as a Gmail address), there is nothing more you need to do. However, you will be prompted to login with a Google account before you are allowed to access the Google Meet session for your child’s Parent/Teacher conference.
If you do not have a personal Google account, you may also use your child’s Google account to access the meeting. As a reminder, your child’s username and password for their LSR7 Google account can be found by clicking the Student Credentials tab in the PowerSchool parent portal. We suggest having your child’s username (their full email address including the @lsr7.net) and password ready in preparation for the virtual parent/teacher conference should you need it.
Use the resource above to find best practices for Google Meet that can help you to connect quickly and easily with your child(ren)’s teacher(s).
The weekend of October 30 – November 1, the Lee’s Summit West Student Senate will host a virtual 5k and 1 mile Fun Run/Walk.
Participants in this event will complete the 5k or Fun Run on their own sometime during the weekend of October 30 – November 1. Those competing in the 5k will submit their time to the race coordinators, and the top 5 finishers in each age category will receive shout outs on social media!
The cost is $15 for children 12 and under and $25 for everyone 13 and up. This price includes a t-shirt and admittance into the race. Cash and checks can be dropped off at LSW or mailed to LSW (2600 SW Ward Road, LSMO 64082). All proceeds benefit the student body at Lee’s Summit West High School.
Once you have signed up and paid, you will receive more information about this event, including t-shirt pick-up times and locations. Thank you!
LSR7 will transition to a hybrid learning model for grades 4-12 starting on Monday, Oct. 5, 2020. Pre-K-3 will continue full-time in-person instruction, and R-7 Online Academy students will continue to participate in online learning at home five-days-a-week.
Students with the last names A-K will be in group A. Group A will attend school in-person on Mondays and Tuesdays, and engage in teacher-planned lessons and independent assignments virtually on Thursdays and Fridays. This means the first day of in-person learning for Group A is Monday, Oct. 5.
Students with the last names L-Z will be in group B. Group B will attend school in-person on Thursdays and Fridays and engage in teacher-planned lessons and independent assignments virtually on Mondays and Tuesdays. This means the first day of in-person learning for Group B is Thursday, Oct. 8.
On Wednesdays, all students will have the opportunity to engage with their teachers through group check-ins, office hours and individual meetings. Staff will also use Wednesdays as planning and collaboration time, and buildings will receive extra-cleaning and sanitization on Wednesdays.
Students at the same address will be grouped by the last name of the oldest child.
We will plan on having 7th and 9th grade transition days on Friday, Oct. 2. Group A will be from 7:30-10:00 a.m. and Group B would be from 12:00-2:30 p.m. Building leaders will communicate additional information.
Students, we have Chromebook tips, troubleshooting help, and a way to contact us if you need help from Technology while you are learning virtually and online. Visit the Connect 2 Learn Website for more information.
**Remember: to protect your Chromebook, do not let the charge go below 20% and plug it into an outlet, not a power strip.
