LMHS Weekly Wednesday Update
March 10, 2021
Message From The Principal
Change is coming! On Monday, I realized that this Friday marks one year since we sent out students home for what we believed would be a two week shut down. Never did we imagine that it would be over a year. As we prepare to welcome our students back we are saddened that we were not able to send off the class of Class of 2020 properly or say goodbye. We welcome the Class of 2024 who we don't really know yet and has yet to be on the campus.
Personally, I have been reflecting on the changes that have occurred in our students lives. Our students have experienced so much. They have been immersed in a digital world for the past year, many have suffered pain and loss of loved ones, and others have struggled with isolation and depression. Our students have experienced a lot and we can't ignore these changes. As a staff we have to be ready to teach in this new HYBRID schedule but we also have to take time to reconnect with out students. To hear their stories, to support them in their pain. Change is hard!
We look forward to seeing our high school campus come back to life and will never take for granted the benefits of seeing our students in person. We know that things have changed and we will do everything we can to teach them, love them and support them in this next adventure.

AP Exams 2021!
Attention All AP Students!
All AP Students have been enrolled to take all AP Exams during Administration #2. Some assessments during this administration must be paper/pencil and will have to be taken on campus. We are currently working to create a plan for these on-campus test administrations. Some of the assessments will be taken digitally and can be taken at home or on campus. All students have been auto enrolled to take these digital exams at home, however, Mrs. McGillivary will be contacting each AP Teacher to see if any student signed up for digital at-home exam would like to request to test on campus.
Please stay tuned as more detailed information will be coming in the next week from each AP Teacher. You may also direct any specific questions or concerns to Mrs. McGillivary.
