La Grande students and families, Today at 1:25 pm the fire alarm went off at La Grande High School. Students and staff were exited from the building and LGFD responded quickly to our campus. The situation has been resolved with no damage to the school site. Simultaneously, there were reports of fireworks in the school parking lot and a school shooting. We have confirmed that students, in violation of school rules, set fireworks off in the student parking lot. There is no evidence indicating the presence of a weapon or shots fired, at any time, today at La Grande High School. We remain committed to school safety.

Hello Tiger families, Please remember that we're in the process of getting back student-issued technology. This means any device that was checked out to your student needs to be returned to our LHS campus as a part of the student checkout process. All of this is happening during 8th period advisory and in the Media Center from Wednesday through Friday this week. Chromebooks, hotspots, cameras and any other electronic device must be returned so we can service the device for the upcoming school year. If not returned, you will be responsible for the cost of the item. As always, your help and support in getting this accomplished quickly is appreciated. Please remind your student to do this ASAP this week. Thank you.
Congratulations to our Tiger Survivor Challenge winners Taryn Miller, Lilly Kellogg, Aspyn Wildman, Joslyn Cooper, and Kiah Carlson! These students are a perfect representation of what it means to be Tiger Strong! We are so proud of ALL our students and their ability to thrive and persevere through such a challenging year. TIGER UP!!!
