THIS WEEK’S

TOP STORIES


INTERIM REPORTS - POSTED SEPTEMBER 28th


It’s hard to believe that our students have been in school for four weeks. The past four weeks have been challenging for all of us, but we’re working hard each day to ensure that all our students are getting the support they need to succeed.

Next week marks the halfway point in the first grading period, so interim grades will be posted on September 28th in each of your student’s classes. Please check your student’s Infinite Campus Portal for any missing work that needs to be completed before grades are posted. If you find that your student is missing work and struggling in his/her classes, all of our teachers are available to help during their office hours Tuesday through Friday from 12:00-3:15pm.


IN-PERSON TUTORING WITH TEACHERS

If your student is struggling in any of his/her classes, they may be able to meet one-on-one with a teacher for direct instruction here at LMS. Please contact the classroom teacher to set-up an appointment time between noon and 3:00pm Monday through Friday. Tutoring appointments are limited to 14 minutes with each teacher and will be held in the main office conference room. COVID screening will be required upon entering the building and only ONE person is allowed to enter the building with each student.
