Urgent Print this articleMake Up Day Information
Click for larger image

LPCSC students, staff, and parents,

Please be advised that the current plan for make-up days involves adding days to the end of the school year. With the number of inclement weather days that we have experienced, our calendar now reflects the last student day as June 5th and the last teacher day as June 6th.

In addition to days added to the end of the school year, the following have been scheduled as make up days: 

February 15 – student and teacher regular day

February 18 – student and teacher regular day


We are considering the following alternatives to the plan above:

 1. Filing for a waiver with the state to reduce the total number of days we must "make up"

2. eLearning eMake up days in combination with regular school days at the end of the school year.

3. eLearning eMake up day(s) on Saturday

4. eLearning eMake up day on Good Friday.


These are considerations only at this time.

Moving forward we are reviewing survey results from our practice eLearning day. Please visit the corporation web page for the results of our recent parent survey. The initial analysis of the results show that the e-leaning days were an overall success with some adjustments needing to be made.  We encourage you to read the comments submitted so you get a sense of the pulse of our parents on this matter.  In doing so you will see that a number of parents support eLearning, however some are adamantly opposed to it.


Ongoing discussions will take place with the District eLearning Committee to determine utilization of eLearning days in the event we have additional cancellation days.

Urgent Print this articleParking - Please Read
Click for larger image

Dear Families,

Please refrain from parking alongside Country Club Drive and Kowal Drive when picking up students at dismissal. This recent practice has caused a great deal of frustration with residents as it has created an unsafe environment for homeowners and secondary students that are being dismissed from buses.

I realize that the newly adopted parking lot procedures have not expedited a faster pick up time. However, it has secured the safety of students. The safety of students is our priority and I appreciate your attention to this matter.


Mrs. Donna Biggs, Principal
