LMHS Weekly Wednesday Update

Smiling Faces under the Mask!
As we have attended many school events this past week we have witness many smiling faces. How do we know? It is the laughter and the conversation of both our students and parents that tell us. Why are we smiling? Because we have the opportunity to be together (with masks and distance). It has brought so much joy just hearing the banter. In the past I have definitely taken for granted the blessing of being together with our students and families.
So this week, these are the smiles we look forward to when our students return. To hear their laughter, engage in conversation and see them once again together. Despite the need to wear masks we will still be able to see their smiling faces!

Highlights from last week....
Athletic competition is happening daily! Congratulations to Girl's and Boy's Soccer for starting their seasons with wins over Milikan and Troy. Cross Country runs today against Norwalk HS at Benton and Thursday both Boy's and Girl's Soccer take on La Serna and Football travels to Orange. It is so great to see our athletes back on the field competing.
Currently spectators are limited to immediate family members. We have very limited capacity in many of our venues reducing the number of spectators that will be allowed to attend. The protocols at this time are as follows:
- If your student is an athlete you will receive a link to sign up for entrance to events
- Each player is allowed up to 2 tickets for spectators 18+ years or older
- No students will be allowed to attend as spectators
- All spectators will have to maintain physical distancing for other families (8 feet)
- All spectators must wear a mask at all times
- No concession stands will be available. Spectators may bring water but no other food or drinks will be allowed.

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.
