LHS Weekly Update #23

January 22, 2021

In Person Option Begins Feb. 1

We are excited to welcome students to the building on Feb. 1. All students have the opportunity to come in person or stay remote.

We will have a few adjustments to our bell schedule to accommodate three lunch periods. We have designated three zones (assigned by teacher). A student's 2nd period class will determine what zone they are in for lunch and SSP. See below for class times and zone assignments. **Note that zone 3 is a different start time for class for both remote and in person students.

We will also use zones to stagger releases from classrooms to reduce numbers of students in the hallway.

This Bell Schedule will start Feb. 1 - following these class times whether student is in person or remote.

*Closed campus at lunch.

*No eating in classrooms. Water bottles allowed and encouraged (drinking fountains have been turned off).

*Assigned seats.

*Building open to students each day at 9am. All students must exit building by 3pm each day.

*Students must adhere to the Daily Decision Tree.

If your student needs transportation, be sure to register for the bus.

Black History Month Contest

In celebration of Black History Month, the local National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District (FNSBSD) are proud to sponsor the Black History Month Contest - The Black Family: Representation, Identity, & Diversity—“Moving the World Forward.” We invite all K-12 students to participate in this annual contest.

This program is an opportunity for students to showcase their knowledge, encourage the study of Black History, and show excellence in creativity. We hope that this program can open dialogue to educate our students about the importance of Black History.

Contest Rules:


Grades K-3: Label and color three (3) pictures of African American families.

*Pictures of notable African Americans for students to color are available from https://bit.ly/3nmPXnl

Grades 4-6: Make a poster on your interpretation of the theme.

Middle/High School:

Grades 7-8: Submit a typed, original, 150-word essay using this year’s theme and illustrate it with your original artwork.

Grades 9-12: Submit a typed, original, 250-word essay using this year’s theme, works cited page, and illustrate it with your original artwork.

*Please include the student’s Name, Grade, Teacher, and School on each entry item. Please include a class roster of all participants with the student’s Names, Grade, Teacher, and School if submitting entries as a class. All entries MUST have a permission slip signed by a parent/guardian.

If students are remote and want to participate, they may email copies of their project to eeo@k12northstar.org. However, if they can drop off their original to their homeschool to be delivered to the Administrative District Center, that would be great.

There will be 1st, 2nd, 3rd place prizes for each grade category. Additionally, all participants will receive a certificate of participation. Entries need to be submitted and received by 4:00 pm, Friday, March 5, 2021, to the EEO Office in the FNSBSD Administrative Center, 520 Fifth Ave. 3rd Floor, Fairbanks, AK 99701.
