Letter from the Principal

Welcome Back!

Dear LPCS Parents/Guardians/Students,

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year. We are very excited to have you and your children as part of the LPCS family. Every staff member has been working very hard to prepare for the return of our great students. We have set high expectations and made plans to help every student be successful this school year.

We have four new seasoned staff members who are looking forward to working with our students.

School starts on Wednesday, July 26, 2017, at 9:00 a.m. and ends at 3:24 p.m. every day. Students are aware of the dress code and LPCS rules. Every student has attended or is now attending an Orientation and Testing Session.

Reminder: No student can attend LPCS without going through the process of Orientation and Testing. If you have not registered and are interested in attending LPCS, please do so ASAP, so as not to lose academic time.

It will be an exciting year and I am looking forward to working with the parents, guardians, and students of LPCS. GO PANTHERS!!!!

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. Together we can create success for your student.

Micaela “Mickey” Smith
