Student schedules will be released electronically on August 5th at 5:00 pm. Our counselors are working extremely hard to try and fulfill all requests. However, there are times in which classes conflict and we won't be able to meet every request. We will continue to do our best!


In a couple of weeks, LCISD will start the verification process. Please ensure that all information is updated and accurate. Verification must be completed and immunizations must be current in order for your child's schedule to be released. Please refer to the "note from the nurse" below.

A Note from the Nurse

Sports Physicals

All students involved in 6th grade pre-athletics or 7th/8th grade athletics need to have an updated physical on file. Before any athlete can practice or tryout, they must have a completed medical history and physical. There are two forms linked that you can print off and take to your doctor if need be.


Rank One online forms must be finished ASAP. If you already have an account, simply login or use the "lost password" feature. You may also upload your medical history and physical into Rank One. However, please make sure that all information is filled out and uploaded correctly or it will be denied. If you happened to turn in your physical in person, you can just skip the uploading sections.


If you have any questions, please email one of the athletic trainers listed below:
