News from LCHS
Happy holidays. We hope you enjoy winter break. We are so grateful that you trust us with your children and we enjoy helping them on their academic journeys.
A couple of notes as we head into finals week:
- We have an alternative schedule on Wednesday and Thursday to accommodate finals. Please see the attached schedule.
- Finals are offered in most courses and make up 15% of a student’s total grade.
- We do not typically excuse absences to extend a holiday break. Teachers put a lot of work into finals and our window to grade and post grades is tight so it’s essential our whole community support a strong academically focused end to the semester.
- Students who get extended time will work with teachers on their plans. They may ride the regular bus later or arrange their own rides. Many times extended time will be accommodated in the normal class period and kids can ride the 12:45 pm bus home.
Thanks so much for what has been a very strong semester at LCHS. We look forward to seeing you in 2018.
Reminder: Winter Break begins on Friday, December 22nd and school resumes for students on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 (Schools closed 12/22/17 – 1/7/18, teacher work day 1/8/18)
