Good Afternoon LS-H Middle/High School Families,
The 2020-2021 school year is fast approaching and I can't emphasize enough how excited we are to welcome students back to LS-H Middle/High School! On Monday, August 17, the Le Sueur-Henderson School Board approved LS-H Middle/High School to begin the school year in the Hybrid Learning Scenario. Please review the information below and feel welcome to contact us should you have any questions. We're thrilled to welcome our students back to school with GIANT PRIDE.

- Review the Student Device Handbook.

We look forward to greeting your family on Sept. 2nd when you arrive to pick up your child(ren)'s device!
More information about device distribution procedures will be communicated soon.

LS-H Middle/High School Hybrid Schedule
Each family can check which group their child(ren) have been assigned to by viewing their child's schedule on Campus Portal. Select any calendar day between Sept. 8 and Dec. 22 on Campus Portal to determine if your child has been assigned to attend school virtually or in-person that day. The image below demonstrates what the "Virtual" indicator looks like on Infinite Campus.
Students will attend school virtually on any day that the "Virtual" indicator is present on their school calendar in Infinite Campus. Students will attend school in-person on any day that the "Virtual" indicator is not present.
Due to classroom capacity limits, LS-H Middle/High School will not be able to accomodate changes to hybrid group assignments unless extenuating circumstances exist.
Infinite Campus Parent/Student Portal
Please refer to the following document to assist with logging into and updating information on Campus Portal. The "forgot username" and "forgot password" features on our district's Campus Portal can also be used if you are having difficulty logging in. Further support can be found by contacting the LS-H Middle/High School Office at (507) 665-5800 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Le Sueur-Henderson Bus Company is working diligently to finalize our bus routes for the 2020-2021 school year. If your child intends to utilize bus transportation, it is essential that a bus transportation form has been submitted. Transportation forms can be found on the Fall 2020 page of our district's website. The deadline to submit this form was August 7th. Please contact Kris Stivers (email@example.com) if you have not yet submitted this form and intend to ride the bus.
All LS-H MS/HS teachers and students will be using Google Classroom as their learning management system during the 2020-2021 school year. Parents will have the ability to receive one daily or weekly email that includes information about each of their child's classes. Additional information will be provided about this Google Classroom feature as we approach our first day of school.
