It’s been a month since Lucerne Valley Unified and other San Bernardino County school districts were closed due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. But Lucerne Valley school staff members wanted their students to know they have not been forgotten.
On Thursday, April 16, Lucerne Valley Middle High School staff shared their heartfelt sentiments to students with a photo collage and message. The next day, Lucerne Valley Elementary released a video photo slide show. Both contained special messages for students to decode.
“Although the 2020 school year is not going to end the way that most school years should end, the staff of LVMHS wanted to make sure that students know they are missed and that Mustangs or Colts, at the end of the day LVMHS is family!” LVMHS Assistant Principal Kelly Boeing said about the collage.
Each LVMHS staff member held up a homemade sign with a word or phrase that when read in total said:
“Dear Lucerne Valley students, we are sad about the pause in school, but we are here for the long haul! You are missed. You are loved. We believe in you! Work hard. Be kind! Do great things! Until we meet again.”
The Lucerne Valley Elementary School staff shared their heartfelt sentiments to students in a video slide show created by 5th grade teacher Jennifer Hankins. The message:
“To our fabulous students, you are amazing and resilient. You are loved! You are cared about and are truly missed. You are doing incredible work. Keep going and giving your best. We are so proud of you! Soar on! Eagles soar on! Love, LVES Staff.”
