Unfortunately, we do not know what tomorrow brings. As a small business, this will effect us tremendously. But as small business owners (and teachers!) with a passion for what we do, we want you to know that we are here to help you in any way we can, during this difficult time. We are available via email to help you with any online activities your child has been assigned, and/or if you are in need of some at-home activities. Ms. Joann will be posting at-home activities to Ms. Erica and Ms. Tina’s classroom site. Ms. Francesca will be hosting online activities via videos and posts on her class site. Please feel free to contact us whether you are a student of ours, a graduate student of ours, or just a parent in need of help. Be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for some fun activities! No child should be penalized for what the world is going through. Together as a community we need to be there for one another and help in any way possible. The health department is strongly suggesting we close our doors for the safety of all our students and staff members. So with a heavy heart, as of Friday, March 20th LBM for the first time will close. We are strong and I know we will all get through this difficult time! Our hope is to reopen April 20th. Our prayers are with each and every one of you! Please be safe and let’s get through this together !

All our love,
❤️ Ms Joann & Ms Francesca
