Other Announcements:

Students, we would like to remind you to obey the crosswalk signals when crossing Broadway.  Do not cross the road until the crosswalk signal changes to allow you to walk across.  If you walk while the signal is red, you run the risk of being hit by a turning vehicle.  Also, do not cross the street halfway and wait in the median, that can be a dangerous situation. We want to make sure you all stay safe on your way to and from school. Thank you.

Attention students: Beginning March 2 we will begin construction on an athletic addition on the east side of the building.  This will impact parking.  In the interest of safety and traffic during the day, staff will park in the stadium lot and enclave.  Students will have access to the forum/cafeteria lot on the south side of the building, all of the main entrance lot, and the north lot outside the tech lab and woodshop area.  You will notice parking maps posted around the school this week explaining this change.  Again this change will take place on Monday, March 2.

Blog Announcements:

Parents please join us for LHS PTO meeting Feb 11th at 10 am in the main conference room.
