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

Last week your 6th-8th 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.

Please note that no registration is required for our current 5th grade students.

We have many plans in place to assist our students and their parents as they choose their courses and register online. We hope our 8th grade students and their parents were able to attend our Rising Freshmen Course Selection Night on Monday.

All of the above resources can be found in the MSP2P, HSP2P (8th grade students) and Class of 2024, 2023 and 2022 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 MS 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!
