LRHS Tardy Policy-We are pleased with the outcomes and participation of students with the new LRHS tardy policy. Parents, thank you for your support. I ask you to speak with your child—specifically student drivers that they must make good and safe decisions regarding the tardy policy when arriving on campus in the mornings or after lunch. The safety of our students is our highest priority. Safety must be at the forefront of their decision, and students may need to plan to be tardy to maintain safety occasionally. 


Save the Date!

Our 2nd Semester: Meet the Teacher will be on Feb 1 from 5:30 to 7:45 pm. The LRHS PTA will be having a General Meeting starting at 5:30 pm. 


Our Rising 9th Grade Open House will be on Feb 8 from 6 pm to 8 pm. We are excited to welcome the Class of 2028 to Leesville.
