Although we will continue to support students opting for remote learning, our district is committed to safely supporting an increase in in-person learning for the students at LFHS following Spring Break.

In order to determine the extent to which we can increase in-person learning days for students, we need to know which students want to participate in in-person learning at LFHS beginning on March 29th (after Spring Break).

This will be the final time to submit a student learning preference update form. Only submit this form if you are changing your student's learning preference to a different choice than it is right now.  Forms are due by March 5th.

For the month of February, when love is a common theme, students were asked to reflect on the activities they love the most. Activities that bring us joy not only help to combat our stress levels, they replenish our energy and provide us the strength and resilience to then do our important work in the world. When we are joyful, our whole body benefits, especially our heart and our mind.
