Student Holiday - Staff Professional Development
If your child is going to be absent for an entire day, you may submit an absence request in skyward. Below are the steps:
- Login to your family access
- Select your student
- Click on attendance
- Click "add absence request"
- Fill out all required information and make sure "all day" is selected
All other absence types (coming in late, checking out early, etc) can be taken care of in the office.
***Remember that all doctors notes must be received within 48 hours of the absence. Your child can bring a physical copy or you may email a copy to email@example.com.
We will be having Pirate Pride on Friday for those students who qualify. Pirate Pride is a front loaded incentive for students to do well academically, behaviorally, and time management wise. Students who qualify will be able to have a 1 hour recess throughout the day. A concession stand and ice-cream truck will be available if students wish to buy treats.
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.
Lubbock-Cooper High School is hosting a Parent Night presenting the dangers of Fentanyl on Wednesday, October 11th at 6:00 in the PAC. This presentation will be conducted by HIDTA and the Texas Anti-Gang Center. If you are interested in learning more about the dangers of Fentanyl and the pandemic we are facing, please plan on attending.
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.
If your child is interested in competing in Academic UIL, please have them sign up using the QR codes outside of the cafeteria. In the graphic below, you will find some important dates regarding UIL.
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.
