With regard to the Homecoming dance:

  • LHS highly discourages the use of party buses. In previous years, there have been numerous issues with students making poor choices on unsupervised buses. If you choose to acquire a party bus or limo for your student’s party, we highly recommend a parent supervisor ride in the vehicle. If buses or limos park on campus, and there is a concern for student safety, these vehicles may be searched in our efforts to keep all children safe and sober.
  • It is the expectation that all students adhere to the LHS Student Handbook and LPS District Policies while at the dance and all other school events.
