Parents, Family Members and Students:


I am beyond excited to welcome our students back to campus on Tuesday, August 10. Due to COVID19 and blended instruction last school year(s), there is a lot of work to do. But I truly believe we have the students, teachers and staff, and a community of parents and family members to make it a historic year here at L.C. Swain. Our two top priorities will always be to provide a safe learning experience where every child averages a year or more of academic growth. Also important will be providing academic and social/emotional support for your student throughout the school year. As parents and guardians, I ask that you provide an email address and check it daily, communicate daily with your student about academics and school climate, and monitor any and all social media they use. To stay updated on L.C. Swain, please be sure to follow our social media, check out Stallion Community Folder on our school's website, and read our newsletters. It is my goal to keep you as informed as possible. That in turn will make you and your child's experience a great one here at L.C. Swain Middle School.


I look forward to working together with you and seeing our students safely and soon.
