Basketball Rule Change
There will be a big rule change in UIL basketball this year. Please read the graphic below. Also, officials will be cracking down on spectator behavior. While we are competitive and want our student athletes to succeed, let's ensure that our fan base acts in an appropriate manner while setting the best possible example for our kids!
The Pirate Pantry program is an outreach of the Lubbock-Cooper community present on each of the district's eight campuses which supplies students (and families) with food, clothing, supplies, and other needs.
The purpose of a campus Pirate Pantry is to provide essentials for students that they may not have access to, with the ultimate goal of giving them the best possible chance to succeed. Campus Pirate Pantries accept donations from community members and operate through donations made by area business and community leaders and, most recently, a grant boost from First United Bank via the Lubbock-Cooper Education Foundation.
Currently, LBMS Pirate Pantry is in need of restocking shelves after supplying as many families as we could before summer. We are in need of the following donations to Pirate Pantry for both boys and girls as well as snacks that might be helpful through the weekends.
- Hygiene products
- Body Wash
- Hair Brushes
- Laundry Soap (small enough to be sent in a backpack)
- Kid Friendly Snacks (Fruit Snacks, Jello, Pudding, Peanut Butter, PopTarts, Granola Bars, Individual packaged items, apple sauce, trail mix, beef jerky, etc)
All donated items may be dropped off in the front office. We appreciate your consideration!!
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.
3. Please avoid using the alley behind Happy's and Harrigan's as a cut through to avoid before and after school traffic. We want to help their staff remain safe when doing outside tasks.
Let's do our part as a LCP community to help these businesses out.
Semester Exemption Days
We wanted to go ahead and put out the criteria used to determine semester exemption days in December and May. This is a front-loaded incentive for students to do well academically and with attendance.
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. Lunches delivered in this way to students will not be accepted and will be turned away.
