How to Homeschool
March 26, 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

From the night of Sunday, March 15, 2020, we have heard from parents who have been affected by the social directives and travel advisory that followed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s message to the nation. We are all affected with many of our parents  feeling the psychological strain with no clarity on how the situation will evolve in the coming months. We understand how difficult your situations are and the challenge of the uncertainty. 

We write now with the Schools response to the latest developments.

  • We had previously communicated our intention to review small scale parent activities that we can support on campus. However, the recent guidelines on social distancing mean we are once again asking parents to come on campus only when necessary, for example, to an agreed parent-teacher conference or meeting.
  • We remind you that if you are coming on campus you must have your temperature taken at one of the security points.

  • Please do not come to the School if you suspect that you have any symptoms of Coronavirus (a new continuous cough and/or a high temperature) for at least seven days from when your symptoms started or while they persist. Government policy is that you should self-isolate at home during this period.
  • Management assures parents that students will receive lessons, assignments or projects that they are to complete during their time away from school via platforms such as class dojo, and emails
  • Adjiringanor campus will deliver Term 2 reports to all parents and guardians at the end of the Term. Osu Campus has historically never provided Term 2 reports as Parent teacher conferences are held in lieu of reports.
  • Parents will also get regular updates on any review that the government will make concerning re-opening, via our official communication channels i.e.
    our website (lsis.edu.gh), designated WhatsApp platforms, Social Media Pages, Emails etc
  • Prevention procedures i.e. washing of hands, provision of sanitizers will continue to be in place after re-opening of both schools
  • As you know, we have cancelled most large gatherings and are controlling any that are going ahead by reducing the number of attendees and doing additional screening, among other measures. We ask our parent community to help us by applying a similar approach to events and activities they attend off campus. If you are not sure that the event or activity is well-controlled, please consider not attending. This will help to keep our community safe and well. 
  • Please ensure you continue to update us on any  student travel plans. You should update all recent travel history as well as future plans and complete ASAP.  This is critical to fulfill our responsibilities to the Ministry of Education.

  • We are continuing with our scenario planning, looking ahead to Term 3 events and activities with the primary goal, being our children’s health and wellbeing.  We are considering measures to further enhance social distancing on campus, and planning Term 1 of next year and beyond. It’s a constantly changing environment but we will keep you informed of relevant developments as they emerge.  


As always, thank you for your understanding and support.


Sincerely,

Sophia Amarteifio, Head of LSIS Osu
