SNAP & READ
Have you ever wanted your students to gather information from a website, but the site was cluttered with ads and clickbait? Snap & Read can help. Snap and Read is an application on every student’s Chromebook. In just two clicks Snap and Read will remove all those distractions leaving crisp clean text and that’s just the beginning. In less than 2 minutes you can show your students how to use this awesome feature. Here’s the link!
Safety and Security
- ID Badges should worn and visible at all times. All students will receive a school ID Badge when school pictures are taken, until then students may wear last year's.
- Visitors should report to the Secure Vestibule in the front of the school for screening.
- It is also expected that each of us report anything that may makes our school unsafe, either by contacting the SRO Officers at LC, the counselors, the teachers, the administrators or any staff member immediately when a concern arises. If a person wishes to remain anonymous, concerns may be reported by using this Anonymous Alert Form.
- We expect all Patriots at LC to be safe and enjoy everything about LCHS this year. Please know all of Garland ISD, LC Administration, Faculty and Staff work hard to ensure everyone in the LCHS Patriot Community stays safe each and every day.
