Posted by JOANNE ALLISON on 8/5/2022 2:45:00 PM

Class of 2023 Students - We are looking forward to seeing the Senior Class when school resumes on Monday, August 22, 2022.  We welcome our new Class of 2023 secretary, Mrs. JoAnne Allison, as she joins the Lancer family.  Here are some items I wanted to let you know about before school starts.  Senior year at Lafayette is an exciting time with many rewarding activities, so please look for my weekly email that will come out each Friday.

  • Census Verification Forms:  Parent(s) and Guardian(s), we need your help.  Please take the time to update the Census Verification form for your student(s).  Online Census Verification is completed by the primary household member. You can complete this process by logging into your parent portal account. If you don't have a parent portal account, please contact the Technology help desk at 636-733-1111.  Log Into Infinite Campus and the "Online Enrollment and Census" link can be found by clicking “More > Online Enrollment and Census” on the parent portal. Follow the instructions on the Online Enrollment/Census Verification page to verify and submit your application.  For reference, I am including a screenshot of where this link can be found on the parent portal.
