The CDC's new guidance will not impact schools this school year. All individuals on our schools campuses must mask and physically distance. Yesterday, Governor Brown addressed how the new guidance will be implemented in Oregon and stated, "Nothing is changing for schools this school year, and I expect education staff and students to continue to wear masks and physically distance, as outlined in our Ready Schools, Safe Learners guidance." Thank you for your cooperation.
Herff Jones will be in the LHS commons from 10:30-1:30 on Friday, May 14th, to distribute cap/gowns to seniors who ordered them. Be sure to stop by and pick up your order!
Lifetouch Photography will be here (in the LHS Commons) on Wednesday, May 19, from 7 AM until 5 PM in hopes of getting grad photos for every graduating senior in the Class of 2021. The seniors will have their photos taken wearing their cap/gown/regalia. For teams returning from a competition (golf/tennis), please try to arrive back here @ LHS in time for senior competitors to get their grad photos taken in the LHS Commons (wearing their cap/gown). For teams leaving for a culminating activity on that date (track/field), please allow seniors to have their grad photos taken prior to departure on that date. Lifetouch will be ready to take photos at 7 AM, and they will remain here at LHS until 5 PM. Hopefully, that window of time will allow ALL graduates to get this important photo taken. This photo will be in the yearbook, the class composite of grads, and available for purchase by families. Normally, this occurs at grad practice; however, that is not possible this year. This is the ONLY date that works for Lifetouch.
The cap/gown delivery for the seniors will be delayed until Friday, May 14th. There has been a shipping problem, which is currently being resolved. Thank you for your patience and understanding. Contact Mrs. Moore with questions.
