2018-2019 Course Selection - Action Needed
Course selection and online registration for the 2018-2019 school year is in full swing!

Last week your 9th-11th grade student brought home a personalized letter with important information and instructions for you to create a parent account in PowerSchool. This account will allow you and your student to select courses and register online. The deadline for registering for courses is Friday, April 13.

We have many plans in place to assist our students and their parents as they choose courses and register online:

  • First, our counselors visited our students’ classes last week to answer course questions and introduce the online registration process.
  • Second, we have created video tutorials with detailed instructions on how to create a parent account in PowerSchool and register online.
  • We have also created a video that describes the class offerings by subject area. This video and the HS Curriculum Guide should help assist students and parents as they make their course selections.
  • Finally, although we will not be able to accommodate personal parent meetings during this registration period, your student’s counselor will be available to you via email or phone and is always available to your student.

All of the above resources can be found in the HS P2P and Class of 2019, 2020 and 2021 Schoology groups under Resources and Registration.

Thank you for your support and partnership as we continue to grow and improve our school and our processes.

Student Information Forms
Last week your student brought home a copy of his or her Current Student Information Form that we currently have on file. Those forms were due to the HS office yesterday. If you have not yet, please review the form, make any corrections, sign at the bottom and return it to school ASAP! Be sure to sign and return even if none of the information has changed. If you are not planning to return to LNC next year, please complete a Student Transfer Form and return it to school immediately. Thank you for your time and attention to this important information!

coffee chat HS Principal's Coffee Chat
Parents are invited to the next Principal's Coffee Chat on Tuesday, April 10. This will be the last principal's coffee chat of the school year! Parents have the opportunity to ask questions and receive updates on school happenings. Coffee and refreshments are provided. The chats are held in the HS gym lobby beginning at 8:00am. Please park in one of the visitor's spots at the HS campus or in the MS main lot (north lot). 

Principal Smith will be live streaming the chat through Twitter. Parents who cannot attend but who want to watch can access the live stream link on Mr. Smith's Twitter page or on Schoology HS Parent to Parent once the chat begins. This link will be archived so parents who can't watch live can watch the chat at their convenience. We are excited about providing the opportunity to every HS parent who wishes to "participate" but can't attend in person. Parents do not need to have a Twitter account to participate. The link can be pasted and watched using any internet browser. We hope you can attend either in person or virtually!
