If your student is in the A+ Program, remember that they must have 95% attendance to remain eligible. If your student exempts a final exam and does not come to school, it will count against their attendance.  Please be aware of this.

LHS will offer two more ACT Prep classes this school year. One will be for the April 8th test, and it will meet Tuesday evenings, as well as, Wednesdays and Thursdays either before or after school. The other Prep Class will be for the June 13th test and will meet May 26-29 from 8:00am-12:00pm.

Mid-Year Reports to Colleges:

Seniors applying to Common Application schools will have a mid-year (7th semester) transcript and report automatically sent from LHS in January to those colleges that require one. If a non-Common Application school is requesting a mid-year transcript, please complete another application data sheet (yellow form) indicating the schools. We don’t automatically know to do this. Contact Ms. Wengler (A-K) or Mrs. Dusenberry (L-Z) if you have questions or stop by the College & Career Office (Room 121).
