Dear Lubbock-Cooper Middle School Families,

This week we got to enjoy a great guest presentation by Mr. Donovan Tolbert. Students got to hear inspiring stories and learn the secret to creating achievable goals. It was just what we needed to kick off our week. We also got to enjoy the Valentines Dance with our students. They all had such a great time dancing and taking photos at the photo booth.

Some of you may have noticed an increase presence of law enforcement officials around the campus. With the event we had last week, this is to be expected as we continue to invite local law enforcement entities to our campus to make students, staff, and families feel safe. We thank you for your continued support.

Jess McReynolds, Cathy Barnhill, & Tracye McCallister


Please remind your students the importance of coming to school everyday with their iPads charged and ready to go. Thank you for your support.

School Information:

Absences - Parents are to report student absences including early outs/late arrivals in their Skyward Family Access via an attendance request. This can be done in the app or on a desktop. Click here to view a how to video When submitting an Early Out or Late Arrival absence request, please be sure to UNSELECT the ‘all day check mark’. This ensures the attendance office knows what time your child will be leaving and/or arriving. Campus attendance email is for submitting documentation, such as a doctors note. If you have any questions please contact Annie Young or by calling the front office.

Exemptions - Please see this document for exemption information.

Outside Food Delivery - Due to security concerns, no outside entity (DoorDash, Pizza delivery, etc.) will be allowed to drop off lunches for students. Parents/Guardians may bring a lunch for their students. Lunches can be dropped off in the front office. Please be sure your student knows they are getting lunch so they can come pick it up in the office.

Skyward - Lubbock-Cooper ISD provides parents access to their children's records via our student information system, Skyward Family Access. Skyward Family Access maintains an open line of communication between school and home, and allows parents and students the opportunity to view grades, attendance information, schedules, calendars, and additional information any time of day. Skyward Family Access is available any place with an internet connection. Skyward Parent Link

Student Badges - All students must have their badges on them at all times. Badges will be used everyday to include: Bus Riding, Lunch Purchase, Library Checkout, etc.

Student Dress Code - As we return from summer break, please remind your students of our dress code policy. Student Dress Code

Transportation - If your child will be riding the bus this year, you MUST complete the Transportation Request Form that can be found here.
