Dear Lubbock-Cooper Middle School Families,

This week we kicked off our new hall pass system, eHallPass, with our students and it’s been great. This generation of students is amazing with technology and have taken to using this program with ease.

We hope everyone has a great weekend and look forward to seeing our students back on Monday.

Student Badges

All students must have their badges on them at all times. This is for their safety and for the following: Bus Riding, Lunch Purchase, Library Checkout, etc. We know that middle school students sometime misplace things so replacements are available in the office for $5 each.

LCMS Spinal Screening Information

Lubbock-Cooper Middle School will be conducting a spinal screening on Wednesday, November 2, 2022. If not completed on this date, we will complete the screening during that same week.


Screenings are for 8th grade boys and 7th grade girls.


The purpose of a spinal screening is for the early detection of abnormal curves in the spine at the earliest stages. Many times, if caught early, curvature of the spine is mild and requires only observation by a physician. Spinal curvatures can worsen as the child grows and require more aggressive treatment, such as bracing or surgery. Early detection and treatment can prevent the development of a severe spinal deformity which could affect both appearance and health.


The procedure for spinal screening is simple. School nurses will look at your child’s back while he/she stands and then bends forward at the waist (Forward-Bend Test). The following procedure will be used in the spinal screening:


  • Girls will be seen separately and individually during the spinal screening.
  • Students will wear shorts and t-shirt for the examination.
  • In order for the spinal column to be thoroughly inspected by the screener, all students will remove their shirts during the examination.
  • We request that girls wear a halter top, tube top, sports bra or a two-piece swim suit top under their shirt for the examination.



Parents will be notified of the spinal screening results only if a professional follow-up is necessary.
