Reporting Absences

This school year, we will implement a new way for parents/guardians to submit absences. This process will allow absence requests to be submitted ahead of time in Skyward. Please click the button below to learn how.

****If you are only checking your child out for a short period of time, such as a doctor's appointment, please unselect the check mark where "all day" is indicated. This will allow you to enter a specific time frame.****

Best is the standard

We have several signs throughout the building that say "Best is the STANDARD." As discussed on the second day of school, this slogan is applicable to every aspect of life. Wether it's studying, competing, helping others, cleaning, behaving positively, or anything else, we want students to do their absolute BEST. If their mindset is "Best is the STANDARD," great things are going to happen!!


Please assist us in making sure that students are in dress code at all times prior to arriving at school. As we move closer to the holiday's and time away from school, we want to make sure that consistency is upheld to avoid any unnecessary frustrations. Below are a few potential "hotspots" to be mindful of:

  • Hair color must be a naturally occurring color
  • Students are not permitted to wear pajamas to school
  • Students are not permitted to wear hats inside any campus buildings (campus-approved hat days, dress-up days, etc. are the exception to this rule)
  • Leggings, tights, yoga pants, or similar pants are permitted so long as they are accompanied with an approved top that is within the width of three fingers from the top of the knee.


Congratulations to ALL students who participated in the academic UIL contest last Monday. LBMS competed very well and came out with a FIRST PLACE finish!!


The Green Hand Quiz team competed in the Lubbock District Leadership Development Events (LDEs) and placed 1st out of 15 teams. They were the only team of 8th graders competing against freshmen and qualified for the area competition! Individual results were:

Brooklyn Waldron - 1st

Nicolas Newman - 3rd

Cameron Stephens - 4th

Cooper McNabb - 12th

They did an amazing job and represented LBMS very well!

November Teacher Appreciation

businesses to the east of lbms

Some of the businesses directly east of LBMS have asked for help with a few things:

1. Please don't use their lots as a place for student pick-up or drop-off.

2. If your student isn't going to be a paying customer, they do not need to be there for the sake of hanging out or waiting for a ride.

Let's do our part as a Pirate community to help these businesses out.

Mrs. Bairds - Teacher On The Rise

Mrs Baird's Bread and United Supermarkets have announced the return of the Teachers On The Rise program for the 2022-23 school year.

This student/family nominated program honors three local teachers every month. Teachers have such a tremendous impact on students every day, and these are the stories Mrs. Baird's wants to hear about! Nominate your favorite teacher at!

No Outside Delivery for Student Lunches

Parents/Guardians may bring a lunch for their students. Lunches can be dropped off in the front office and students will be allowed to pick-up their food when they are dismissed for lunch.

**Due to security concerns, no outside entity (DoorDash, Uber Eats, Favor, Pizza delivery, Chick-Fil-A, etc.) will be allowed to drop off lunches for students.
