A Message From Principal Joshua
I trust that you and your student enjoyed the February break last week! Spending time resting and recharging is extremely important and I hope they had the opportunity to disconnect and unplug as they have spent so much time in front of a screen this year. As we enter the home stretch of this school year (10 remaining weeks), please encourage your student to complete every assignment and take advantage of every opportunity teachers offer to provide additional assistance. We have began communicating Course Extension information. This is an amazing opportunity for students that may have failed a core content class between a 55-69 to receive credit without the $200 fee associated with summer school. Please be sure to listen closely to the details regarding Course Extension. Finally, please be mindful that while the Covid-19 vaccine has been rolled out, we are still not out of the woods. Continue to mask up, wash your hands often, and social distance as much as possible. Our short-term goal is to make it to Spring Break and from there to the end of the school year. Also, please checkout the newest section of Lithia Lion News. We are seeking positive stories about students and staff as well as any shout outs that you may desire to give that special Lithia staff member.
