We are heading into our last week before winter break!

Winter Break:

December 19th - January 2nd

Our first day of school after winter break will be Tuesday, January 3rd. Have a safe and relaxing break spending time with family and friends.

Pancake Breakfast:

Our student leadership provided another great pancake breakfast last Friday for students and staff. It was also great to have the student leadership at Stanwood High School join us for our breakfast.

Grading Session 3 Ends Monday:

This Monday is the end of grading session 3. Students should turn in any missing assignments before the end of the day tomorrow to count towards their session 3 grades. Teachers will have grades ready to be sent home the first week we are back from winter break.

Please encourage your student to continue working on completing any missing work during the winter break to get caught up. When we get back from winter break, we will have four more weeks left before the end of the 1st semester and we want all students to earn all of their credits from the semester.

Reminder: ASVAB Assessment

Seniors and Juniors:

January 12th is the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery). If you have not met the graduation requirement of passing the Smarter Balanced Assessments in both Math and English-Language Arts, you can take the ASVAB and pass with 31 out of 100 to meet an alternative to the SBA requirement.

Reservations with Counselor Christy are required in order for the Military to prepare the testing materials. This will be the only opportunity you will have to take the ASVAB with LHHS this year. The ASVAB assesses English, Math, Science and some career competencies. It helps determine what career fields you could be skilled in.

Listed below are the days of the week students can get support in specific content areas after school (2:10 - 2:40 PM).

REMINDER: Partnering in Student Success

Supporting Student Success:

Our teachers work hard to support students academically everyday. Partnering with students and parents/guardians in this work is very important. This is our last week before winter break and five school weeks before the end of 1st semester. Supporting students in staying caught up on their work and turning in any missing assignments is very important not only for student learning, but also in maintaining grades that will earn credits towards graduation.

Below are some steps you can take at home to support students academically:

  • Review any missing assignments with your student by having your student login to their Skyward account. Locate the missing work and support your student in completing it. You may reach out to teachers with any questions you have.

  • Review assignments with low scores and have students ask their teachers how they can redo an assignment or retake an assessment to show their new learning to earn a better grade.

  • Arrange a time for students to get additional time and support from their teacher. Please refer to the Student Support section below in this newsletter for days of the week students can stay after school for additional support. (NOTE: If a specific day/time does not work in the student's schedule based on the teacher schedule below, please contact the teacher to find another day/time that will work).

We see our students working hard everyday and we are here to support them in their learning. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our teachers if you have any question. Teacher contact information can be found below.

Teacher Contact Information

We are here to support every student in their learning. Below are teachers' contact information if you need to ask any questions or need assistance. Teachers are available for students before and after school as well. Please contact your teacher to arrange a time for additional assistance if needed.

For additional assistance, students can reach out to our counselor, Christy Thompson at

REMINDER: Credit Retrieval

Are you behind in credits? Credit Retrieval classes are here to help. This opportunity is available for all grades. Please contact our counselor, Christy Thompson, get enrolled. You can schedule a time to talk with her at school or contact her through email at


As the weather forecasts indicate, we may see cold weather this winter. Our Superintendent, Dr. Rumbaugh, has shared with everyone how we make the determination to delay or close schools due to ice, snow, flooding, etc.

  • Safety first! We consider the safety of our children on buses, our student drivers, families driving and walking to school, and the safety of our staff, especially our bus drivers.

  • We monitor weather patterns using multiple methods 24/7. In particular, we use a tool called Accuweather that is specifically designed to support school districts in looking ahead at weather patterns.

  • When there is a concern about school starting on time, our staff begins driving the roads throughout the district as early as 2 a.m. We take photos, check road conditions, monitor traffic, look for hazards, etc. We typically drive the roads multiple times in the early morning to determine if conditions are improving, worsening, or staying the same.

  • We strive to decide about the school day by 5 a.m. Once the decision is made, we begin communicating with families and staff. We communicate through:

    • Autodialer (via School Messenger)

    • Email (via School Messenger)

    • Website

    • Flash Alert

Predicting the weather is a challenge, and our primary goal is to ensure that the roads are safe, our campuses are easy to navigate, and the weather does not impede a safe school day.

REMINDER: Chromebooks

It is important that students come to school with their Chromebooks fully charged everyday. Please make sure Chromebooks are plugged in every evening so that they will not need to be charged during the school day. Students will then not need to bring their Chromebook charger to school and risk losing it.

If you are having any troubles with your Chromebook not charging or the keys are not correct, please refer to the troubleshooting guide below.
