News from LCHS — Welcome Back!
Dear LCHS Students and Families,
Welcome back! We are all so excited to see our families at Orientation Conferences and have our students back in school for a year filled with great learning opportunities! Thank you all for your patience as we continue to work through details in order to provide the most safe and educational experience possible. The team has been working with community partners to establish safe practices in this ever changing environment, and to create meaningful, engaging educational pathways.
If you have not completed the online student registration for 2020-2021 school year, PLEASE do so now. We still have many students for whom online registration is not complete. Use this link to complete the online registration process and use the information mailed in July in your returning student registration packet. https://www.lakecountyschools.net/student-registration-information/
Orientation conferences for all students, virtual and in-person, will be held Monday-Thursday, August 24th-27th, 10:00 am – 6:00 pm. More details about scheduling a conference will be coming soon. Be sure to watch for communications from the Lake County School District!
Be sure to complete and submit your application for Free and Reduced School Meals as soon as possible, if you have not already, so that the application can be processed and eligibility determined BEFORE the first day of school on August 31st. Even if your student is participating in LCSD’s virtual option, you will still need to complete an application to be eligible for free or reduced school meals beginning on August 31st. Applications can be turned in at any school front office Monday-Thursday 8:30 am – 3:30 pm, or mailed to Leslee Torsell, Lake County High School, 1004 W. 4th St., Leadville, CO 80461.

This first link will take you directly to the Frequently Asked Questions and application page which can be accessed through late September.
