Due to the vast amount of illness among our performers, we are unable to continue with tonight’s (3/5) scheduled Choir concert. At Lake County High School Performing Arts we value performing with our entire team. When circumstances out of our control arise, such as illness, we have to make tough decisions. We do not want to risk spreading illness to other students, performers, and audience members. Thank you for your understanding.
On Monday, March 9 at 4:15pm Project Dream will be running our first Lock Down drill with students. Safety is always our number one priority, and we look forward to practicing this drill in the after school setting. Please note that during the duration of the drill, students will not be released. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Karen Johnson, After School Director, at 719-293-5093 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support.

In recent years we have seen increasing number of students in our 7th and 8th grades. In order to address this issue, keep class sizes small and support teachers and students, we are making some structural changes for next year. This will allow us to add a science teacher as well as move around some positions to keep class size reasonable in our younger grades. Another part of these changes will involve Mr. Carrol taking over all band classes. We will still offer what we have recently offered in terms of music education, with the exception of drumline which will become a club. Mr. Cairns has gone and explained this change to students. Please contact Mr. Cairns if you have questions about these structural changes.
