Community Service Hours

As part of LPMHS's graduation requirement, all students are asked to complete 40 hours of community service prior to high school graduation. We define community service as a service a student is providing to help others or serve the community. To log hours, students must fill out a form for each activity and turn it in to Mrs. Hammaker. The form can be found here, and an ongoing list of upcoming community service opportunities can be found here. Please check this document often for the latest activities and opportunities!

Students can pick up blank forms and turn in completed forms to Mrs. Hammaker in the counseling office. Please email her at chammaker@lakeplacidcsd.net if you have any questions about community service!

Educational Leave

Again this year, LPMHS is proud to offer our Educational Leave Program for student-athletes who participate on teams that train and compete at the state and national levels in sports that are not school-sponsored (NYSEF sports, luge, bobsled, speed skating, figure skating, travel hockey, etc.). This program is designed to provide educational support for student-athletes who must miss classes to train and compete in their sport.

If your child is planning on participating in NYSEF sports or any other outside sport this year, and will need to miss school to do so, please fill out the Educational Leave Request form and email it to Ms. Amy Spicer, LPMHS Educational Leave Coordinator: aspicer@lakeplacidcsd.net. She will also be happy to answer any questions you may have about the program. Please note that the form needs to be submitted to Ms. Spicer five school days in advance of your child’s leave.

Food & Outerwear Drive

The LPHS chapter of the National Honor Society is working with the Rotary Club this month to support our local food pantry! NHS volunteers will be at the St. Agnes Church parking lot on Saturday, October 16 from 9am-12pm to collect donated food items, as well as gently used or new winter outerwear.

  • Non-perishable food donations are always welcome and appreciated!
  • October's theme is Thanksgiving so that families can receive Thanksgiving food baskets. Ideas include frozen turkeys, canned green beans, canned corn, stuffing mix, potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, rolls, seasonings, etc.
  • The food pantry can also use personal and household care items such as shampoo, soap, dish soap, dishwasher detergent, laundry detergent, baby shampoo, etc.
  • Don't forget to gather any outgrown or unused winter outerwear and bring it with you to donate for the Outerwear Drive!

Thank you for your generosity for our community! We hope to see you there!
