Living Word Academy Closed 5/20

posted May 18, 2021, 5:07 AM by Isaiah Rocine

Dear Parents,

 

Living Word Church’s Senior Pastor, and the founder of Living Word Academy, Bob Mazur, went home to the Lord yesterday after a lengthy battle with illness.  As a result, Living Word Academy will be closed Thursday so our staff and students can attend services.  Details on services are as follows:

 

·         There will be a viewing at Living Word Church from 10am until 1:00pm.

·         There will be a Memorial Service at 1:00pm at the church.

·         A fellowship meal will be held in the Living Word Church Banquet Hall Thursday after the Memorial Service.

·         A private graveside service is yet to be determined.

 

Due to the school’s closure there will be no transportation to and from school that day either.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause your family, if you absolutely cannot find child care for your children please contact me at ijrocine@gmail.com and we will try to help.

 

Blessings,

Jehovah Nissi Day T-Shirt Ordering

posted May 4, 2021, 8:34 AM by Isaiah Rocine   [ updated May 4, 2021, 8:36 AM ]

Hi Students and Parents of Living Word Academy students,

 

Each year we have an exciting event our last week of school called “Jehovah Nissi Day”, based on the events found in Exodus 17.  Jehovah Nissi means “God is my banner” and we use it to celebrate the Lord and our school.  Students wear special t-shirts that day; do a presentation of a class banner, song, or skit to the school during an all school gathering; and have a day of fun games and festivities.  I think it is the most looked forward to day of the school year for our students.

 

We need to order shirts in the next week.  In the future we'll share more information about the festivities that day in case you want to join us.


Details on the shirts are below:

 

Shirts are mandatory for Jehovah Nissi Day.

 

Shirts will cost $5 to purchase.

 

Each class has selected a color for their class to wear, but you can order a shirt for yourself or others and select any color you want on the online order form.  Orders for students can also be placed via a paper order form that will come home to you today or tomorrow.

 

Order form link is here:  T-Shirt Order Form

 

You will need to fill the form out for each person who orders.  Sorry for the extra steps, but it’s the only way we can keep things straight on our end.

 

Please place orders by Sunday, May 9th.

 

You can send cash or check in to school with your child(ren) to pay for the shirts or pay via Venmo.  The Venmo account is isaiah rocine or isaiah-rocine.  Checks should be made out to Living Word Academy.

 

If you have questions or problems email Bro. Isaiah at ijrocine@gmail.com or Sis. Melissa Meyer at melissameyer@lwasyr.org

 

 

Blessings,

 

Bro. Isaiah

Hi Parents and Students,

There will be COVID testing at Living Word Academy on Monday 1/25/21 from 8-10am.  This is testing the school is required to perform every 2 weeks.  We are encouraging everyone to register for testing.  All details will be identical to the last two times (location, method, etc).  The link for registration is here:

https://covid19.ongov.net/appointments/school-registration-form/

1/6/21 LWA COVID Testing Results

posted Jan 6, 2021, 12:39 PM by Isaiah Rocine

Dear Parents, Staff, and Students,

I’m happy to share results with you from the COVID testing that took place at Living Word Academy today.


95% of students and staff were tested today, have already had COVID and don't need to test, or will get tested on their own outside of school before returning to school.

75% of our students opted to attend school today after testing and about 20% more should be back in school in the next week or so.

99% of the people tested today came up with a negative result.  There were 2 positive results, who were members of the same family.


Based on the encouraging results today school will remain open for in-person instruction.

 

A few important notes/reminders:

1.       PLEASE return your Chromebooks AND CHARGERS to school ASAP.  We have been doing great returning Chromebooks, but we are missing many chargers.

2.      Please continue to monitor yourselves for COVID symptoms and stay home if you have any, even if they are mild.  Please contact the health office with any questions about how symptoms should be handled.

3.  Given the increase in COVID locally we are requiring students who are home sick with COVID symptoms to have a negative COVID test before returning to school.  Contact the school health office with any questions about where you can get testing done.

 

As always, feel free to reach out with questions or concerns.

 

Bro. Isaiah
