    From the Executive
Director April 7, 2021

    Dearest Families and Friends,

    Spring is bringing a new sense of optimism to LMACS. We are preparing to welcome a new Executive Director, we have implemented a new Covid Pooled Testing program, all LMACS staff has received at least one vaccine dose, and we are planning:

    TWO Graduation Ceremonies!

    Please click the link for the 
class of 2020 for details and click the link for the class of 2021 for details. Each graduate will be allowed to bring up to six guests. No one will be able to enter the outdoor venue without a ticket or a mask and we will follow all the guidance from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education with regard to Covid protocols. The dates are June 2 with a rain date of June 3.

    Also posted are the date and times of the public ZOOM interviews for the 3 final candidates. Whoever is lucky enough to be offered a position at LMACS is lucky enough. LMACS: Home of the best students, teachers and staff, and of course, families.

    Ms. Hendl is really excited about our Pooled Testing program (although she would like more students to be part of it) and is very happy to report every week that we have not had any positive cases! Good news for sure. Ms. Hendl has posted several documents with detailed information about this program over the past few months. If you have further questions, please call 978.656.3461.

    Grads are reserving spots for their pictures (deadline April 12, 2021) and caps and gowns have been ordered…we are all so very happy for our two graduating classes and their families.

    Once again, we thank you for your ongoing support of Lowell Middlesex Academy Charter School.

    Sincerely,

    Margaret McDevitt, Ed.D.
    Director
