LHS Building Protocols

  • We will continue closing the main hallway doors leading to the academic portion of the building daily at 4:00 pm. Students that are remaining after school for practices, classroom assistance with teachers, or waiting for a ride home will be required to remain in the cafeteria. In addition, they will be expected to wear a facial covering while they remain in the building. If your student does not need to stay after school, they are expected to leave the building at the conclusion of the school day.

Youth Entrepreneurship Opportunity

In conjunction with the Genesee Intermediate School District (GISD), I am requesting approval to initiate a Youth Entrepreneurship Club at Linden High School. This District-Sponsored club would be an after school club, facilitated by a professionally trained advisor provided through the GISD, would provide 9-12 grade students with the opportunity to experience exploring the entrepreneurial mindset and the small business environment.

Intended Outcomes for Participating Students

  • The development of a small business idea from conception to presentation.

  • The ability to compete against other Genesee County students.

  • The ability to secure scholarship monies for the students business plan and presentation of ideas.
