    Class of 2023 Students and Families:

    Today our Junior Class Advisory Committee wrapped up their Spring service project in support of the CHAD’s Coalition for Mental Health.  During all four lunch periods, lucky Lancer students who donated to support mental health awareness and had their raffle tickets drawn were able to “pie” their selected teacher or administrator in the face. We would like to send a special thanks out to our teachers and administrators who were brave enough to join in on the fun and get a little bit messy in the process. Also, thank you to our Lancer community who helped our Junior Class Advisory Committee raise over $400 for the CHAD’s Coalition for Mental Health.

  • Class of 2023 Communication- March 18, 2022

    Posted by JENNIFER MALL on 3/18/2022

    Class of 2023 Students and Families:

    Spring break has arrived!  Mrs. Mall and I would like to wish everyone a safe, relaxing, and enjoyable break.  When we return on March 28, 2022, we will have less than 50 school days left before school releases for summer break.  Please let Mrs. Mall or I know if we can be of any assistance to help you have a successful conclusion to your Junior year at LHS.    

    If you don’t feel well, please stay home.

    Schedule for March 21-25 Spring Break
    Schedule for March 28 - April 1 A, B (Ac Lab), C, B (Ac Lab), C
    • AcLab Tuesday, March 29 - No travel day. SEL survey during AcLab.
    • AcLab Thursday, March 31 - Be sure to sign up on Wednesday, March 30.

    End of Staggered Release - Monday, March 28, 2022:  Given that our quarantine/isolation numbers have decreased significantly and for an extended period of time, we will be ending staggered release after spring break.  Starting on Monday, March 28, all students will be released with the bell at 3:17. 

    Allergy Season:  Our nursing staff have seen an increase in students coming in to request allergy medication.  Our nurses are not able to distribute allergy medication, so they ask that students take their medication at home prior to coming to school.  Thank you!

    Attention students interested in applying for NHS in the Fall of 2022:  There will be an informational meeting on Zoom on Thursday evening, April 21st at 6:45pm.   At the meeting the current NHS Exec board will detail the application requirements and answer any questions.   Here is the Zoom invite:  https://rsdmo-org.zoom.us/j/91971517369. If you have any questions, please email Mr. Brian Fish, LHS NHS Adviser, at fishbrian@rsdmo.org

    Proposition P: Rockwood’s Proposition P is a no-tax-increase initiative on the April 5, 2022 ballot. If passed, Prop P will authorize the district to establish a dedicated annual funding source for technology and safety upgrades as well as cycle maintenance projects without raising the district’s total tax rate. This funding source would eliminate the need to borrow funds and pay interest on scheduled technology and safety upgrades and annual maintenance items, ultimately saving taxpayer dollars. For more information about Proposition P, visit the district website at www.rsdmo.org/PropP
