Lafayette Students and Families,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year!  For those families new to Lafayette or to Rockwood, my name is Dr. Karen Calcaterra and I am the proud principal at Lafayette High School. I look forward to getting to meet our new students and families and give you a warm welcome to what I believe is the best high school around!  This year, all of our "Back-to-School Information" will be shared virtually with links to information and forms for families to prepare for the upcoming school year.  This is an important email that contains a lot of information.  Please read all of the information and save it, as you may need to reference it throughout the remainder of the summer.  You will be receiving grade-level, specific information from each of our principals in the coming weeks.  We are looking forward to the start of the year and welcoming our kids back to Lafayette High School!

Information for Monday Diploma Cover Pick Up

Parents and Graduates,

Thank you for a wonderful evening yesterday. It was an awesome full moon evening and the Tuesday Night Rock Band performance was the highlight of the evening. Our graduates looked stunning in their graduation regalia and it was good to see everyone enjoying a fun evening.

Unfortunately, some of our students were unable to get a diploma cover last night due to a missing shipment. I would like to apologize for this mishap.  We received a partial order which resulted in the issue we had. At this time if any of you did not receive your diploma cover or need a diploma cover please feel free to come to LHS on Monday, June 8, 2020, between 1-2 p.m. and pick one up from the circle drive/pool doors.

Once again my apologies for this inconvenience.

LPO Message Re: Senior Celebration

May 21, 2020 Senior Celebration 2020 Permanent Link to Post

Dear Seniors,

We hope you’re having a great day and have enjoyed picking up your cap and gown in preparation for Graduation!    Senior Celebration committee is so excited for you and for what your future holds.  This isn’t how we anticipated the end of the year looking, but we’ve been planning on cheering you on as you move into the next phase of your life all year!   From your hard work at our fundraisers to choosing 2 Legacy Charities that were close to your heart last November, you have been an amazing class to watch grow and mature throughout your years at LHS. 

We know that you have been wondering about Senior Celebration. We have had to cancel the overnight party that traditionally follows graduation due to CDC, state and local guidelines.   We will be refunding ticket money to original ticket purchasers.  If you purchased your ticket for senior celebration, please see the letter beneath our note to find out how to initiate your refund.  Please note, all refunds have to be initiated by June 5th.

Despite not being able to host that party, we are committed to commemorating this momentous occasion. We want to let you know our plans to continue to celebrate you and the Class of 2020 as a whole.  We will be donating money to a planned renovation of the front entrance landscaping of Lafayette.  Class of 2020 will be commemorated as a part of the renovation.   We hope you have enjoyed the yard signs, as well as the videos from our community wishing you well and the raffle prize drawings that we announce each night at 20:20 on @LHS_LPO (Instagram), @LancerParentOrg (Twitter), and Lancer Parent Organization (Facebook).   We are excited to announce that we will continue to the drawings daily until June 3rd because at 20:20 on June 4th you will be graduating!   

Each of you have your own path into your future and we can’t wait to see where it will take you.   In keeping with that, just as LHS has prepared you academically for your future, we would like to gift you something to allow you to purchase something you would like to have for your future endeavors.    Each graduating student of the Class of 2020 will receive a $60 Amazon gift card at LHS during graduation parking pass pickup on May 29th  from 8am-12pm.  Students must be present to pickup- otherwise we will send the gift cards to the address on file with the school. This is our gift to you to help you begin your new stage in life.  We are so proud of you, Seniors.  

In the end, it isn’t what we take, but what we leave behind that defines who we are.  The final thing we will do as a tribute to the Class of 2020 is donate to the Legacy Charities you chose in November (CHADS and the Lawrence Strawbridge Foundation) as well as Rockwood’s Got Your Backpack in the name of the Lafayette Class of 2020.   

We’re disappointed that the end of your year wasn’t what we expected- but we want you to know that it doesn’t take away from your story.  Thanks for all the wonderful memories Class of 2020- we look forward to a few more as we finish up!

Best of Luck to you always,

The Senior Celebration Committee




Dear Seniors and Senior Families,

We hope you are doing well and are gearing up for our graduation activities.  As you all are aware, Rockwood announced Lafayette’s new graduation date (June 4) as well as the plans to graduate at POWERPlex StL.  As we have all processed these changes, the Senior Celebration committee has had the added responsibility to address what Senior Celebration will look like.  

The primary mission of Senior Celebration since its inception in 1986 has been to keep students safe on the night of graduation.  The overnight party hosted each year was the most successful way to attract students in order to keep them sober and off the roads.  Since the announcement of graduation plans, the Senior Celebration committee has met and tried to see if any of our contingency plans would fit within the parameters of the guidelines of the CDC, state and local authorities.  Unfortunately, we cannot envision a way we can host an overnight party that would allow for the students to be together under the current conditions.   We are both disappointed for our students and sorry.  As parents of seniors, we fully recognize what has been lost this year and would have loved to be able to host some sort of event.  We do intend to continue celebrating students through different means and launch them into the next phase of their life with a gift from us.  

As we cannot offer the overnight event for which tickets were purchased, we are offering ticket refunds to the original purchaser of the ticket.  If you have not purchased a ticket for Senior Celebration, please disregard the following information.  You have 3 choices in regard to your refund.  

Choice #1  - Donate your Full ticket price to the Legacy Charities of the Class of 2020 in the name of the Lafayette Class of 2020.  “At the end of the day, it isn't what we take that defines us.  It is what we leave behind.”  In November, the Class of 2020 chose to leave their legacy donations with 2 charities.

CHADS Coalition - https://www.chadscoalition.org/  - Communities Helping Adolescent Depression and Suicide

The Lawrence Strawbridge Foundation - https://www.facebook.com/LStrawbridgeFoundation- Bridging the Gap for Lafayette VICC students

 Choice #2 -  In response to the loss due to Covid-19 and the hardships our community is facing, donate the full cost of your ticket to Rockwood Got Your Backpack in the name of the Lafayette High School Class of 2020

Choice #3 -  Receive your refund back in full paid either by check or by electronic payment through Venmo or Paypal

In order to process your refund or donation, you must respond by Google Form prior to June 5th.  Any refunds unclaimed after June 5th will be donated to the Legacy Charities of the Class of 2020.    Please allow up to 3 weeks to process your refund after you initiate the process.  Please use this link to get to the google form.

https://forms.gle/LHdrLaCLhjrDwWTt9

Thank you for your flexibility, patience and understanding as we continue to celebrate the Class of 2020.   If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us using LHSLancerSeniorCelebration@gmail.com

Mobile Hotspots: Bring to school when we return in person
A record number of students have enrolled in Rockwood Summer Academy and will participate in online summer school.  To support our students with their learning, all families that received a mobile hotspot from the district may keep it over the summer.  We ask that you return the hotspot, power adapter and box to school with your student the first day we are back in person.    If your student is graduating this year, and you have no other students in your home, please return the mobile hotspot to one of the repair sites the week of June 2nd OR contact me via a reply to Rockwood CIO to schedule a date, time and location to drop off the equipment.  

Online Resources:  Some will remain available over the summer
Some of our regular online resources used in class, such as Big Ideas Math, will also remain available for student use over the summer.

Students Entering Ninth Grade in August
We understand that the pick up of belongings is optional.  If you plan to pick up belongings from your student's middle school, your eighth (8th) grade student should return their current Chromebook and power adapter at that time.  They will receive a new Chromebook for use during high school at that time.  If they cannot find the power adapter, we will assess a $10 fine via Destiny.  You may bring cash/check (payable to Rockwood School District) in an envelope with the student's name on it or you may pay the fine at a later time via InTouch.  If you do not attend one of the pick up days at your child's middle school, you will receive information later this summer about when and where your student will receive their ninth (9th) grade Chromebook.

Repair Sites for Summer  Open June 2, 2020 – August 6, 2020
Due to maintenance projects in many of our schools, we will have two repair sites for the summer.  Repair sites will be closed the week of May 25 – 29, 2020.

Days: Tuesdays and Thursdays only
Hours: 7:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.  and  12:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Technology Help Desk    Monday - Friday 7:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.   (636)733-1111
The Technology Help Desk is available to answer questions and perform limited troubleshooting via the telephone.  If a help desk team member is unable to resolve your issue, a ticket will be created and assigned to the team member best suited to resolve it.  Students may directly create a help desk ticket using Incident IQ (iiQ)
 
Report Cards Available June 2 - 10, 2020
Report cards will be available on the Infinite Campus parent portal June 2 - 10, 2020.  
  • Send an email portalhelp@rsdmo.org if you do not have an Infinite Campus parent portal account 
  • If you do not remember your account information, use the appropriate link on the parent portal site, e.g. Forgot Password.

SENIOR CELEBRATION 2020

May 18, 2020 Senior Celebration 2020 Permanent Link to Post

Dear Seniors,

We hope you’re having a great day!   Senior Celebration committee is so excited for you and for what your future holds.  This isn’t how we anticipated the end of the year looking, but we’ve been planning on cheering you on as you move into the next phase of your life all year!   From your hard work at our fundraisers to choosing 2 Legacy Charities that were close to your heart last November, you have been an amazing class to watch grow and mature throughout your years at LHS.   We have a few updates for you about how you will be celebrated.

  • Celebration

    • We know that you have been wondering about Senior Celebration. We have had to cancel the overnight party that traditionally follows graduation due to CDC, state, and local guidelines.   We will be refunding ticket money to the original ticket purchasers.  Please check Dr. Mehrotra’s blog to see how to initiate your refund.

  • Raffle/ Commemorative Gift

    • We want to let you know our plans to continue to celebrate you and the Class of 2020 as a whole.  We will be donating money to a planned renovation of the front entrance landscaping of Lafayette.  Class of 2020 will be commemorated as a part of the renovation.   We hope you have enjoyed the yard signs, as well as the videos from our community wishing you well and the raffle prize drawings that we announce each night at 20:20 on @LHS_LPO (Instagram), @LancerParentOrg (Twitter), and Lancer Parent Organization (Facebook).   We are excited to announce that we will continue to the drawings daily until June 3rd because at 20:20 on June 4th you will be graduating!   

  • Student Gifts

    • Each of you has your own path into your future and we can’t wait to see where it will take you.   In keeping with that, just as LHS has prepared you academically for your future, we would like to gift you something to allow you to purchase something you would like to have for your future endeavors.    Each graduating student of the Class of 2020 will receive a $60 Amazon gift card at LHS during graduation parking pass pickup on May 29th  from 8am-12pm.  Students must be present to pick up- otherwise, we will send the gift cards to the address on file with the school. This is our gift to you to help you begin your new stage in life.  We are so proud of you, Seniors.  

  • Charity

    • In the end, it isn’t what we take, but what we leave behind that defines who we are.  The final thing we will do as a tribute to the Class of 2020 is donate to the Legacy Charities you chose in November (CHADS and the Lawrence Strawbridge Foundation) as well as Rockwood’s Got Your Backpack in the name of the Lafayette Class of 2020.   

We’re disappointed that the end of your year wasn’t what we expected- but we want you to know that it doesn’t take away from your story.  Thanks for all the wonderful memories Class of 2020- we look forward to a few more as we finish up!

Best of Luck to you always,

The Senior Celebration Committee

Please excuse the formatting issues in the previous email.  Apparently there were technical problems with school messenger.

Senior Families:

I hope this communication finds you and your family well.  We have loved and cared for the Class of 2020 for the last four years and are proud of all that they have accomplished.  It has been a privilege to be able to be a part of our students’ lives and to have you all as members of our Lafayette community.  While we would have never imagined this is how four years of learning, laughter, tears, and growing up together would look, I am grateful for the coming weeks where we will be able to celebrate our seniors in a thoughtful and safe way.  This email contains important details for our seniors and their families.  Please read the information carefully and let us know if you have any questions. 

Senior Exit Survey

Completing the Senior Exit Survey is required in order to receive your diploma.  You can access the survey using this link, https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/rsdintent20, or through the link provided in your email.  If you have not yet completed the survey, please do so now. 

Graduation Ceremony - June 4, 2020

Dr. Miles’s most recent message highlighted that we now have a date and plan for our graduation ceremony, ensuring our seniors the traditional experience of graduation and walking across the stage.  This plan developed due to the continued uncertainty of being able to conduct a safe indoor ceremony with a community of our size in attendance.  The POWERPlex STL offers an amazing venue for this year’s graduation, ensuring a safe and memorable event for all. Each graduate will receive two (2) parking passes for their family members, and it will be first-come, first-served for parking spots.  With large digital screens on either side of the stage, parents and families will have a clear view of the ceremony from their cars.  Our graduates will be seated, safely distanced, in front of the stage. Make sure to mark your calendars for June 4, 2020 at the POWERplex STL, located at 5555 St. Louis Mills Blvd., Hazelwood, MO 63042.  Our graduation ceremony will begin at 7:00 p.m., and graduates will be asked to arrive at 5:30 p.m.  It is strongly recommended that graduates be dropped off rather than drive separately.  We will email more specifics regarding information and other expectations for the graduation ceremony next week.   Click here for more information from the Rockwood School District.

Parking passes for Graduation

Passes will be available for contactless pickup at Lafayette High School’s Welcome Center on May 29, 2020, at the following times:

Senior Salute Parade - May 21, 2020 

We will still be hosting our Senior Salute Parade to celebrate the Class of 2020 on May 21 at 6:00 p.m.  Senior families are invited to drive their Senior through the parade route on our Lafayette parking lot.  Lafayette staff will be present to help us celebrate this important accomplishment.  Parents/Guardians, please plan on driving your senior, tape a paper with your senior’s name in the right corner of your windshield or the front passenger-side window, and we will announce your senior as you process through the parking lot.  Please click here for more details.

Reminder - Fines/Fees

All students received notifications of any fines or fees that are owed on their student account.  This will include any current items in their possession (textbooks, chromebooks, etc.) as well as any previous fines for items lost or not returned (uniforms, library books, etc.).   All fines and fees can be paid through the Online Parent Portal.   Seniors will need to return all items and finalize fee payments prior to receiving their diploma.
