Dear Parent/Guardian:

The online registration process has begun, and you should have received information from the district about the process.  Remember that the entire registration process is completed online.  In the event that you do not have internet access, we will have staff available for registration assistance from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday, August 9th, and any Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in our main office.  


Most of the information that you and/or your student might need for a successful start to the school year can be found on our school’s webpage at http://lchs.lewiscentral.org.  The web page is updated weekly with new stories, events, and information, so please make it a habit to visit it frequently.  Some of the information that will be posted would include items like the following: 

  • Schedule for the first week of school

  • Parking, drop-off and pick-up information

  • Freshman/new student orientation info

  • Chromebook information

  • Student handbook

  • Checklist for the start of the school year


We are having our 9th-Grade and New Student Parent Orientation at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, August 23rd and an Open House starting from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. for all families.  You should be looking for a “welcome email” from your student’s teachers on or near August 20th.  This email will include information about any supplies needed for that specific class, an overview of class expectations, and how to find helpful information about the class.  


We will only have freshmen and new students to the district attend school on Tuesday, August 24th, in the morning.  This will provide us with an opportunity to help prepare these new students to the high school for a successful school year.  Ninth graders and new students should be at school by 7:30 a.m., and we will start the day at 7:35 a.m. in our commons.  In the morning students will visit their Titan Times class and all class periods 1-6 with lessons designed to help students to be successful during the school year.  Returning students in grades 10th through 12th all need to be in the school at 11:25 a.m. and in their Titan Time class by 11:30 a.m.


Students will receive a hard copy of the school picture order forms during their Titan Times on Tuesday, August 24th, and school pictures will be taken during the school day on August 26th, so we ask that you plan accordingly.  


Last school year provided us all with challenges we had never experienced, but together we were able to face these challenges and remain in school the entire school year.  This was no small accomplishment, and this definitely could not have been achieved without us all working together.  While we do not anticipate the same level of challenges we dealt with last year, those challenges will still impact how we operate as a school community this year.  Covid-19 remains a concern of ours, and we will continue to have safety measures in place for students and staff similar, but not exactly the same, as how we finished the school year last year.  Face masks will not be required, but students and staff are welcome to wear them.  In addition, several of our other safety supports will be in place.  In addition to the challenges of Covid-19, we still have major construction projects happening at the high school.  This again will impact our traffic and parking.  Like we ended last school year, all incoming 9th graders driving to school will need to park at the middle school parking lot near the Athletic Building in the parking spots marked with an “HS.”


Please make sure you are periodically checking our website for updates and new information to help you and your child have a successful start to the school year!


Thank you again for your support of our district Inspiring Excellence! and Lewis Central High School being “A Community of Excellence.”

 

Proud to be a Titan!

Principal
