Dear Lubbock-Cooper Middle School Families,

I hope everyone enjoyed the first snow day of the year! I know it was definitely a little bit different than the snow days in CO, but I know it was a welcomed surprise to my kids as well as myself. I hope everyone has a great weekend and look forward to next week.

Lubbock County Stock Show Results

The dust has settled from the Lubbock County show and the major stock show season has started! I wanted to send out some results to yall for our LCMS kids and highlight their hard work! If you are not around the livestock show industry then you may not know how tough Lubbock County really is.. IT IS A TOUGH COOKIE! Our LCMS kids have worked hard this year and it showed by the results from Lubbock County.

I have attached all the different results pages and on each results page I have highlighted the name of the LCMS kids! If you see one of these kiddos congratulate them on a great Lubbock County and wish them good luck down the road at the majors! We work with some really awesome kids and I wanted to share some of their successes.

Thank y'all for all y’all do with these kids. If you are having any issues with them please do not hesitate to contact me.

School Information:

Absences - Parents are to report student absences including early outs/late arrivals in their Skyward Family Access via an attendance request. This can be done in the app or on a desktop. Click here to view a how to video When submitting an Early Out or Late Arrival absence request, please be sure to UNSELECT the ‘all day check mark’. This ensures the attendance office knows what time your child will be leaving and/or arriving. Campus attendance email is for submitting documentation, such as a doctors note. If you have any questions please contact Annie Young or by calling the front office.

Outside Food Delivery - Due to security concerns, no outside entity (DoorDash, Pizza delivery, etc.) will be allowed to drop off lunches for students. Parents/Guardians may bring a lunch for their students. Lunches can be dropped off in the front office. Please be sure your student knows they are getting lunch so they can come pick it up in the office.

Skyward - Lubbock-Cooper ISD provides parents access to their children's records via our student information system, Skyward Family Access. Skyward Family Access maintains an open line of communication between school and home, and allows parents and students the opportunity to view grades, attendance information, schedules, calendars, and additional information any time of day. Skyward Family Access is available any place with an internet connection. Skyward Parent Link

Student Badges - All students must have their badges on them at all times. Badges will be used everyday to include: Bus Riding, Lunch Purchase, Library Checkout, etc.

Student Dress Code - As we return from summer break, please remind your students of our dress code policy. Student Dress Code

Transportation - If your child will be riding the bus this year, you MUST complete the Transportation Request Form that can be found here. Student badges will be used to ensure the safety of your students this year. Campuses will be able to know exactly where and when students are dropped off and/or picked up.
