      New LFHS Class Schedule Information

      Student schedules are generated based on each student’s specific course selections. A schedule packet was mailed to homes on Thursday, July 14, 2016 and included a blank schedule template based on the student’s class selections and lunch period.

      Each student schedule includes information for both Semester 1 (S1) and Semester 2 (S2). Class periods are broken into slots 1-17 and EB (Early Bird) that coordinate with periods throughout the day. Slots are necessary, as some students have split periods to accommodate their class selections.

      To convert an individual schedule to the template:

      • Identify all classes that are First Semester (S1) - Only convert First Semester (S1) classes to the template.
      • Refer to your schedule - Write the class and room number in the corresponding color-coded box.
        Example: Slot 1,2 (S1)- converts to 1st period - write English 1/Room 212 in the corresponding box
      • Complete that process for each day of the week and each slot/period throughout the day. Important: Note that not all classes meet every day.

      Additional Schedule Information:

      • Monday, Tuesday, and Friday classes begin at 8:15am. Early Bird at 7:25am
      • Wednesday morning is staff collaboration from 7:45am-8:45am. Classes will begin at 9:00am
      • Thursday morning is Personal Learning Time (PLT) from 7:45am-8:45am. Students can meet with his/her own teacher for additional instruction. Classes begin at 9:00am
      • During your lunch period on Wednesdays and Thursdays - start off in the class assigned to those time slots/periods. Teachers will indicate lunch breaks during those time slots/periods.
      • For the few students who have a slot 19 class listed in their schedule, please disregard that slot. Slot 19 is listed for the high school's record keeping. We regret any confusion this may have caused.

      If you are taking an AP Science Class:

      • AP Science classes are scheduled using three slots (1.5 class periods). Your AP Science class will be taught during three slots with a study hall or free period during a fourth slot (thus making up 2 full class periods).
      • If your AP Science class begins during Early Bird, it will be held during Early Bird and Slots1, 2/Period 1.

      IMPORTANT: Please select the template that corresponds with your designated lunch slot. These may be different for each semester and for each student.

      Any changes we can accommodate will be reflected on PowerSchool August 10th via the Powerschool link found near the bottom of the homepage under School Links and Resources. PowerSchool student passwords are located on your enclosed class schedule. Students are required to attend courses as listed on the schedules as of Textbook Pick Up.

    • LFHS Partnership – Volunteer Tutors Needed

      With changes to the LFHS school-day for the 2016-17 school year, we have an opportunity to expand our academic supports for students before and after-school. The LFHS administration is reaching out to interested community volunteers to support the tutoring work in our Resource Centers. If you have experience tutoring students or a degree in a specific content area, are a retired teacher/educator, or college student looking to acquire experience or fulfill hours for teaching credentials, this is a great community volunteer opportunity.

      Please submit your interest, by completing LFHS Partnership Survey and we will be in touch with you over the summer regarding your interest. Please note, an interview, fingerprinting, and a background check are required through this process. This program will begin August 22, 2016.

    • Screens for Teens to be Held Monday, August 29! VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

      Every year thousands of seemingly healthy young adults die from hidden heart conditions leaving behind heartbroken families, friends, and communities. Max Schewitz appeared to be a fit and healthy 20-year-old the day he collapsed and died from a hidden heart problem. After such tragedies, people ask “Isn't there a way to find these kids before they collapse and die?” An EKG test can help!

      On Monday, August 29, 2016, all Lake Forest High School students will have the opportunity to participate in Screens for Teens, which includes an EKG for all participants and an echo for certain students. Only students with written permission will be tested. Because the heart changes over time, even previously tested students should sign up for testing. Testing is conducted in private booths set up in the gym and every effort is made to respect privacy and modesty. Cardiologist Eli Lavie, MD, of NorthShore University Health System will oversee all aspects of testing and interpretation. Results are confidential and will be shared only with parents.

      Testing will be on Monday, August 29th. It will begin at 7:45 am and conclude at 3:15 pm.
