The Monday Minute

Week of December 6th @ LVMS

A big THANK YOU to our staff for making a quick and seamless transition to remote learning over the past week.

A bigger THANK YOU to our students for showing resilience and making a great effort to keep on pace with our virtual learning schedule. We also cannot THANK our families enough for their continued support.

We are looking forward to returning to in-person learning at LVMS on

Thursday, December 9th for a normal full school day.

LVMS Master Schedule

Students are expected to follow their regular class schedule, beginning with Period 1 (8:52am). Be sure to check Google Classroom at the start of each class period. Information about required Google Meets and classwork/assignments will be posted there for students. Class Attendance will be taken daily.


If your child experiences a "tech issue", please contact our technology help desk at and avoid sending the communication to the schools. This will help to streamline a response.
