Parents, LHS has updated the Athletic and Activities Handbook. There has been a link added to the LHS Athletics page for the full Handbook (https://lhs.lagrandesd.org/o/lghs/athletics). Please see below for a few of the changes. ---- Attendance the day before (for Saturday events) and the day of an event is MANDATORY. There are few exceptions. ---- Students with unserved lunch detentions or In-School Suspensions may not participate in practice or contests until they have been served. ---- Students who have served an Out-Of-School Suspension are not eligible for practice or contests while they are suspended. Grade Changes: ---- La Grande High School will run weekly grade reports for all extra curricular activities. ---- LHS requires a student to currently pass all 7 classes with a grade of D or higher. ---- Should a student have a failing grade, they will be placed on probation for 1 week. ---- If the grade has not been brought up to a D or higher by the next grade check the athlete will be ineligible to compete until the grade is a D or higher. ---- Grade checks will be completed every Monday, no later than 3 p.m., for that week. If you have any questions, please contact the high school front office at (541)663-3301.

World Kindness Day World Kindness Day on November 13 is a day to recognize the importance of being kind to each other, ourselves, and the world. On this day, participants celebrate and promote good deeds and pledge to acts of kindness. Generosity is contagious and increases our happiness. In fact, in 2010, the Harvard Business School surveyed 136 countries and found people who gave to others were the happiest. Even just one act of kindness can turn someone’s day around and build a stronger community of healing and positivity. Here are ways you can join us for World Kindness Day: Share your pledge to acts of kindness on social media and use the hashtags #worldkindnessday and #makekindnessthenorm. Check out the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation for ideas on how to incorporate kindness into your everyday life. Some of us are already taking steps to find professional help with our well-being, and perhaps you or a loved one should too. If you or a family member would like help finding a mental health care provider, use Care Solace, a complimentary and confidential coordination service provided by La Grande School District: Call 888-515-0595. Multilingual support is available 24/7/365. Visit caresolace.com/lagrande and either search on your own OR click “Book Appointment” for assistance by video chat, email, or phone. Let’s text a friend we haven’t spoken to in a while, treat someone (or ourselves) to a cup of coffee, and be an empathetic and encouraging ear to others as we close out 2023.
Veterans Day celebrated on November 11, is a time for us to pay our respects to those who have served and the families who support them. The brave United States military members have defended our nation for generations and upheld our values to serve a cause greater than ourselves. They have helped shape our history, and we honor their sacrifices as we reflect and celebrate our veterans today. There are many unique challenges veterans and their families face while in active service. Families may need to separate for long periods of time, move frequently, or experience anxiety as their loved ones put themselves in danger. After active duty, many veterans have a hard time adjusting to civilian life. Those who have experienced trauma may need professional help to heal. This is why it is so important as a school community to support our veterans and their families. Here are three ways we can offer support: Become a listening ear to veterans and their families. Let them know you are here for them and allow them space to discuss their feelings. If needed, provide them with the Veterans Crisis Line, available 24/7, by dialing 988 and pressing 1 Connect them to Care Solace, a mental health care coordination service provided by La Grande School District, for ongoing support. If you or a family member would like to use Care Solace to help you find a mental health or substance use treatment provider: Call 888-515-0595. Multilingual support is available 24/7/365. Visit www.caresolace.com/lagrande and either search on your own OR click "Book Appointment" for assistance by video chat, email, or phone. To all our veterans, we thank you for your service.
