Great Things Happening in the Classrooms

Attendance

Daily attendance to school is required.

The only reason a student can be excused for illness is if…

The student has a fever

The student is vomiting or has diahrea

The student has a contagious infection

After one day of illness, parents will be required to provide a doctor's note.

Career Day

Thank you to ALL the amazing guest speakers that came out for Career Day. This would not have been such a great success without Mrs. Piazza, AVID and all that helped out! It takes a team and LCMS is a great one!

iPad Reminder

iPads need to be charged each night before school...remember, it's a tool, not a toy.
