The GREAT Lathrop Textbook Swap

With one quarter-mester ending (Oct. 16) and another beginning (Oct. 19), some students will have to swap out textbooks.

This only affects students who are finishing or starting the following courses:

Anatomy & Physiology

AP Economics



US Government & Civics

To see quarter 2 classes at this time, you will need to use the Powerschool App. You can also email your school counselor for this information (we expect this info to be available to all students prior to the start of quarter 2). Note that many classes are "yearlong" so will continue into quarter 2.

Lathrop HS has scheduled 4 days to safely complete this textbook swap:

Wednesday October 14th - 8:00 am to 3:00 pm

Thursday October 15 - 8:00 am to 3:00 pm

Friday October 16 - 8:00 am to 3:00 pm

Monday October 19 - 8:00 am to 3:00 pm

We set up a “Calendly Invite” in order to best meet the CDC Guidelines and safety protocols regarding COVID-19. A reminder that anyone entering the school must wear a facial mask (unless 2 or younger).

Students will be entering the school through the Front Office doors (by the big purple LHS letters) and check in with the front desk.

The Second Semester begins on October 20th.
