Dear Lubbock-Cooper Middle School Families,
What a great first FULL week back to school! We’ve been seeing some great things happening in the classrooms from fun edible plate tectonic labs in Science to the pacer test in PE and scavenger hunts for textual evidence in Reading Language Arts. We are looking forward to much more and hope everyone has a great weekend.

LCMS Drop Off & Pick Up Map
As part of our ongoing commitment to student safety, LCMS has made two minor changes to the after school student pick up process. First, students will only be allowed to exit the building through the main entrance (north) and the cafeteria (south). Second, parents will not be allowed to park on the east side of State Highway Loop 493 for student pick up. The safest places to pick up students are in the pick up lines on the north side and south side of the campus including the parking lot between LCMS and South Elementary. We appreciate your understanding and support of student safety.

No Outside Delivery for Student Lunches!
Due to security concerns, no outside entity (DoorDash, Pizza delivery, etc.) will be allowed to drop off lunches for students. Parents/Guardians may bring a lunch for their students. Lunches can be dropped off in the front office in the marked shelving area. Please be sure your student knows they are getting lunch so they can come pick it up in the office.

Absences - Parents are to report student absences including early outs/late arrivals in their Skyward Family Access via an attendance request. This can be done in the app or on a desktop. Click here to view a how to video When submitting an Early Out or Late Arrival absence request, please be sure to UNSELECT the ‘all day check mark’. This ensures the attendance office knows what time your child will be leaving and/or arriving. Campus attendance email is for submitting documentation, such as a doctors note. If you have any questions please contact Annie Young email@example.com or by calling the front office.

Skyward - Lubbock-Cooper ISD provides parents access to their children's records via our student information system, Skyward Family Access. Skyward Family Access maintains an open line of communication between school and home, and allows parents and students the opportunity to view grades, attendance information, schedules, calendars, and additional information any time of day. Skyward Family Access is available any place with an internet connection. Skyward Parent Link
Student Badges - All students must have their badges on them at all times. Badges will be used everyday to include: Bus Riding, Lunch Purchase, Library Checkout, etc.
Transportation - If your child will be riding the bus this year, you MUST complete the Transportation Request Form that can be found here. Student badges will be used to ensure the safety of your students this year. Campuses will be able to know exactly where and when students are dropped off and/or picked up.
