2 hour Delays and School Closures
Winter is coming and we just want to be sure everyone receives the text messages and phone messages who wants them.
Please update your contact information in Power School for when we send out messages regarding delays or cancellation you will receive the message.
If your child needs a backpack, please let their teacher know or the front office. We have extra backpacks that were donated.
It's My Closet
In December 2005, Jefferson High School opened a store called It’s My Closet. The philosophy behind the store serves to enhance the concept of nurturing the whole child within the LSC mission statement. The store, specializing in gently used clothing, furniture, and household items, is open to all LSC students and their families. All items are given to shoppers at no cost.
The store and donation center are located in portable classrooms behind Durgan School, 18thStreet and Hiatt Drive. Lafayette School Corporation donates the use of the buildings and also pays the utilities. All workers are volunteers; no one is paid for their time or donations.
Click the link below for more information. We will also have flyers at registration.
You can pick up the letter to confirm you are an LSC family at the front office or call and we can send one home with your child.

Early Pick Up
- If your child has a change of plans for dismissal, you must call before 2:00 so we can make sure the message is delivered to all involved.
- If your child is going to be picked up early from school, please call before 2:00 PM.
- If leaving early students need to be picked up before 2:30
- Students will not leave between 2:30-2:45 due to the dismissal routines happening in the building.
- Students are starting to get ready for dismissal and we might not be able to reach the teacher. So please plan accordingly.
Drop Off Procedures
This is the best way to drop off students that are coming to school in a vehicle.
If you drive your child to school, please drop them off by the gym.
Do not stop on Cason Street to drop off your students. Do not park in the lot across the street and have your child walk across the street on their own. This is not safe. The line to drop off is in the bottom parking lot. This is a continuous line and only takes a few moments.
Vehicles drive over the speed limit on Cason Street. It is not safe to drop off in front. It is challenging to back out of the parking spot. Please drop off in the back parking lot.
The gym doors open at 7:45 and will close at 8:22. If you arrive after 8:22, please use the front doors.
It is getting colder in the morning. The front doors do not open until 8:00. If your child is a walker, please make sure they arrive at the school after 8:00. Students need to be in their classroom by 8:25.
If your child is arriving tardy to school, 8:25 or later, PLEASE park in front of Murdock and walk your child to the front door. You will need to use the buzzer to enter the building. You must sign in your child in the binder at the front office. Unaccompanied child will not be able to enter the building without an adult after 8:25.
