Due to the many days that we have not been in session due to snow/ice/cold, right now the last student day for this year is scheduled for June 4, 2019.  


LPCSC will be using Good Friday as an eLearning make up day.  The date is Friday, April 19, 2019.  Teachers and students will not be reporting to school on that day.  Details will be coming out regarding the eLearning directions for the day.  With this make-up day the end of the year schedule now calls for students to be attending classes through the 4th of June and teachers through the 5th of June.  This is all subject to change, of course, should additional weather cancellations be necessary.
