Principal's Weekly Message - 9/10/2023


Happy Sunday, Pride Families,


Principal Chats- I've had the pleasure of presenting academic and behavior expectations and introducing administrative and student support teams to five groups of 400+ students. If you are doing the math, I've talked to 2,000+ students. I have one more group on Monday. In those talks, I explained that we are in a "schoolhouse," and we expect students to act like it, dress like it, and learn like it. The goals of the talks are for students to be happy and healthy in a safe and orderly environment, knowing that the adults at LRHS are here to support them. 


Parents, I'm asking you to share the following reminders with students:

  • Please be safe in the student parking lot when arriving and exiting the school campus (students need to slow down).
  • Students will remain in the main lobby/cafeteria area if they arrive at school before 6:55 a.m. (LRHS staff are expected on campus at 6:55.) 
  • Students may only leave campus for lunch with a lunch pass (otherwise they are skipping). 
  • Students are expected to be on time for each class. (The tardy policy will be enforced beginning tomorrow, will be cumulative, and will have consequences after a certain number of tardies.)
  • Students violate the WCPSS Code of Conduct if they vape or use nicotine products anywhere on campus.  Students vaping or smoking in a bathroom and the fire sensor is triggered will receive consequences that may include out-of-school suspension. 
  • Students must exit the school building by 2:45 p.m. unless they participate in athletics, clubs, or teacher meetings. 
  • Students need to check their grades in PowerSchool frequently and ask their teacher(s) for help if needed. 
  • Student attendance is essential to student success/achievement. However, we ask parents to keep students home if they are sick

PAC Meeting 

  • A Pride Athletic Club (PAC) Board Meeting will be held on Monday, September 11, at 6:30 p.m. in the Murphy Building. All are welcome!
