In order to maintain an environment where students in classrooms can concentrate and learn at LHS, we expect that the hallways remain as clear and quiet as possible.  Students are welcome to hang out in the cafeteria, outside, or to study in the library.  Students roaming the hallways without a clear purpose will be sent to the cafeteria.   Campus Security will begin clearing the hallways at 2:30pm in the afternoon.  Students waiting for activities or practice to begin after school are welcome to remain in the cafeteria, courtyard, or library.
