LHS TIGER TALK

September 23, 2022

Good Afternoon Loveland High School Families,


Fall is here and our students are as busy as ever! This week it was so great seeing students active in their classes as our teachers created a variety of engaging activities. Outside of the classroom we have over 400 students who are participating in an extracurricular!


During lunch Wednesday, we held our activity fair where students had over 20 clubs and groups to join. Please encourage your students to get involved!


Have a great weekend!

Adam Reed, Brian Conatser, Mary Beth Corbin, and Rich Bryant

Principal's Message

Princeton High School entered lockdown this morning, after a hoax 911 reporting an active shooter. At least two other Ohio schools have received similar hoax threats today. We want to reassure our Loveland families that we have robust safety plans in place that would allow us to respond to any safety concerns, and in the event of an emergency, we will always work to communicate with families as quickly as possible.


Please remind your kids that if they have safety concerns, they should reach out to trusted adults at school - if they see something, they should say something. In light of recent events, it’s also a good idea to remind them that false reports can carry serious consequences.


If you have any questions, please contact me at reedad@lovelandschools.org

Mental Health Services Available at LHS

Loveland City Schools is again pleased to continue a partnership with Best Point Behavioral Health. This partnership provides Loveland students with high-quality mental health services at school to help ensure academic success. Best Point Behavioral Health provides independently licensed therapists at all of the Loveland school buildings to serve students with significant mental health challenges. Concerns addressed include, but are not limited to, stress/trauma, ADHD, anxiety, depression/mood disorders, and Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) treatment.


These optional services are available to all high school students and allow families the choice of accessing a private therapist on-site at Loveland High School. This also reduces the time students miss from class and eliminates the need for parents and students to travel to these appointments. Families can cover the cost of these optional services through insurance, Medicaid, or private pay options.


Please complete this form if you would like our school-based therapist to contact you to learn more about the services provided. If you prefer to refer your student directly, please visit the Best Point Education & Behavioral Health website at https://bestpoint.org/ and click on Refer A Child at the top right corner, or you may contact the LHS therapist, Katie Lee, directly at Klee@bestpoint.org or (513) 697-3024, x3875.

LHS College and Career Lecture Series

The Reserve Officers' Training Corps (ROTC) gives college students the opportunity to develop leadership skills that are used in military service upon graduation. While the scholarship program is a popular part of this program, it's not the only valuable aspect of participation.

Designed to give students and their family members insights into the nature of ROTC, we encourage all who are interested to learn from panelists Petty Officer Hailey Curry and MSG (R) Mike Prows from the University of Cincinnati. It will take place on Tuesday, September 27 at 7:00pm via Google Meet. Please click on this link to register - ROTC Informational Event - Sign Up
