News from LCHS
Seeing families at Orientation Conferences this week has been great! It is so wonderful to have students back in our school buildings. We look forward to beginning classes on Monday at 8:00 am. We will see A-Day students on Monday, B-Day students on Tuesday, and virtual students will complete some Crew assignments from home next week.
Here are a few back-to-school reminders:
- If you did not attend an Orientation Conference this week, you must watch the orientation video before you start classes next week. See Mr. Cairns when you arrive at school to watch the orientation video.
- Be sure to do your health screening at home before you come to school
- Wear a mask and bring your water bottle
- Always bring your chromebook to school fully charged, and bring your charger with you
