Weekly Parent Email – March 5, 2021

March 5, 2021

We’re nearly halfway through the semester, and we feel grateful to interact with principled young leaders like your student. With midterms coming next week, I encourage you to check in with your student to see how they are managing. Our Student Support Team is ready and available to help you with any questions or concerns. We wish your student the best of luck on next week’s exams and hope you both enjoy a well-deserved spring break!

Executive Director, LAU
