LHS Update

8/7/2020

August 24th is right around the corner, as we prepare for this unprecedented school year we have some changes to our "typical" back to school days. Due to COVID-19, we will not be having SLAMM (student registration) Days. Below is information students may need regarding the 2020/21 school year. More information will be sent in the coming days/weeks regarding the school year.

Schedule Changes

Counselors are working to finalize your schedules for the upcoming school year. On August 18, 2020, the Student Portal will be open and you will have access to see your schedule. After looking at your schedule, you may be wanting to make some changes. Schedule changes will only be made for academic reasons. The master schedule, built around student requests last spring, is complete. This, along with scheduling restrictions due to COVID-19, greatly limits the availability for class changes. If you wish to make a request for a schedule change, because of academic reasons, there will be a google form to fill out and counselors will work to complete your schedule change in a timely manner. Your counselor will then reach out to you via email to share the updated schedule with you.


Schedule changes will be made virtually on or after August 18th. Please watch for an E-mail on August 18th with directions on how to submit a schedule change request.

Lockers

All freshmen have been assigned a locker (you may choose not to use it). Your locker number and combination will be listed on portal when it opens on August 18th.


All other students may request a locker on or after August 18th by e-mailing Mrs. McCain (chelseamccain@wsdr4.org) or visiting the Counseling Office once school has opened.
