Seniors: reserve your senior parking spot

It is time to reserve your personal parking spot for next year! Students were sent a message on Canvas and can see Ms. Kinslow for more information! Parking spots will be sold starting Monday, May 8 for $50 cash or check. All proceeds will fund PROM 2024! Designs must be approved before painting is permitted this summer. Spots are sold and reserved on a first come, first serve basis. We can't wait to see the Class of 2024 represented in the student parking lot!

LVISD will sale parking permits separately at the beginning of the semester next school year. All students must have a parking permit to park in the parking. The reserved spaces mentioned above are optional.

Free and Reduced-Price Meal News

As a reminder, LVISD transitioned back to Free and Reduced-Price Meals for the 22-23 school year. The federal government is no longer funding the free lunch program, which was part of the COVID-19 pandemic aid package. All families are encouraged to fill out the Free and Reduced-Price Meals applications. If your child previously received free or reduced-priced meals, a new application must be received to determine if your child still qualifies. Previous free and reduced-meal eligibility has now expired. You can fill out the Free & Reduced Meal application online at MySchoolApps by clicking on the following links:

For questions regarding applications, please contact Michelle Jackson, and for questions regarding student purchases, please contact Jennifer Porter.
