News and Updates from LCHS
Good Evening LCHS students and families,
As we begin our 4th week of online learning we have much to celebrate. The vast majority students are working and learning online. Many students have even brought up their grades. Over 200 students have attendance rates of 90% or higher. This will pay off in terms of strong academic habits and preparation for their futures. I must also say that many students started strong and have faded a bit this last week.
I want to emphasize that with our interim grading policy during our period of online learning, students have an opportunity to improve their grades. Simple effort and hard work will help bring up their grades. This can lead to an improved GPA and a better situation in terms of credits. I would also like to point out, students can also hurt themselves if they fail in this online period. This can lead to them falling behind on credits, needing Friday school next year and even retention. It is essential that they work hard and stay caught up during this time. They should have weekly check ins with their crew teachers. Their crew teachers can help them prioritize, set up plans to get caught up and hold them accountable for doing their work. Make sure your students utilize these teachers to help them during this unique and challenging time.
Lastly, as you have seen by now, Governor Polis has understandably canceled school for the rest of the year. While we are super sad that this is happening, we thought it was likely to be the case. We look forward to wrapping up as well as we can this spring and getting ready for an awesome school year next fall. We are working on plans to celebrate our amazing senior class while still remaining safe and we will communicate those plans out as they are solidified. I will send more details to seniors and their families.
Very challenging times always provide opportunities. I look forward to seeing our students develop strong academic habits and motivation to work on their own through this experience. Stay safe and know we miss all the kids and can’t wait to see them when it’s safe.
