News from LCHS 11/04/22
Hello LCHS family,
We all know that strong reading skills are the foundation of a well rounded student. Research shows that students who struggle with reading often struggle in other areas of their education. We know that poor reading skills are amongst the highest reasons for lack of educational attainment and one of the most common reasons for dropping out. Here at LCHS we will be implementing a multi-tiered support system (MTSS) for our students to identify those students who have difficulties with reading and find the appropriate interventions to help them succeed. This program will begin in January. We look forward to meeting with individual families to see how this new program can help.
Winter is among us and we would like to remind parents and students that the weather may be unpredictable. Please make sure to take extra time in the morning to accommodate any weather. We are also seeing an increase in students being tardy to class. We are adapting our accountability process for students who are tardy to class. This new process will start on Wednesday, November 9th and be communicated to students on Monday and Tuesday.
– If students are less than 5 minutes late to class with an unexcused tardy they will receive a mark towards the 3 marks that then equal a lunch detention.
– If students are between 5 to 10 minutes late to class unexcused tardy they will receive a mark that will automatically give them a lunch detention.
– If students are more than 10 minutes late to class unexcused tardy they will be sent to the accountability room or front office for reflection and escalation of accountability. This may include Friday school if students are consistently more than 10 minutes late to class.

If your student (6th-8th grade) wants to attend a basketball event, you must either attend the event with them, or you must call Alison Sprague at 719-486-6954 to get them on the Event Attendee List. Students whose names are not on the Event Attendee List will be turned away at the door and will need to find a way home. RSVP’s must be called in to Alison before 2:30 pm the day of the event, or by 2:30 pm on Thursday if the event is on Friday or Saturday. We do ask that you call to add your student EACH TIME you want them to attend a sporting event at LCIS. Parents, thank you for your help on this. We are trying to encourage students to be positively engaged at these events, and we appreciate your partnership in that effort.
Attention Panther fans! We are selling Frontier League passes for $60/person.
