2019-2020 Course Selection

Course selection for next year begins in January.  Be watching our website for information and instructions.  All 9, 10, and 11 grade students will need to go online and select courses for next year.

Future Hawk Night

Future Hawk Night is for incoming 8th graders.  This is an informational meeting that is designed to welcome 8th grade students into high school and a chance to meet with counselors and instructional staff to learn about the opportunities here at LSW.  Parents can check our website the week of January 7th for an agenda of the evening.

High School Choice forms

High school students are allowed to choose their school of attendance a maximum of three times throughout their high school career.  Although transferring is not recommended, the opportunity exists if the student and family believe it is appropriate.  Transfers will only be granted for the beginning of each school year and would only be considered otherwise under extreme circumstances.  Request to transfer must be filed by January 31 for automatic approval.

Prom Requirements

Reminder about daily attendance expectations about prom.  Daily attendance may affect eligibility to purchase dance tickets. Maintaining good academic standing includes making daily attendance in classes a priority. Students must have less than the equivalent of 10 days of truancy during the current semester of prom in order to be eligible to attend the event. Parents and guardians are allowed 2 school days to make corrections to attendance records if a student is marked truant (TR) when they should have been called in for a Parent Acknowledge (PA) absence.  For additional requirements for prom and dances see our Student Handbook

Food

LSW has a year-round food pantry available to all LSW families. Student or parents can fill the form out online— enter jump code BCY3 at lps.org to get there— or stop into the LSW Counseling Center to get set up, either as-needed or on a repeating basis (standing order). There are a number breakfast foods, canned goods, and lots of yummy things to eat right away or keep in your cupboards for later, all for free! Let us know if we can help. 

LSW tiene una despensa de alimentos disponible todo el año para todas las familias de LSW. El estudiante o los padres pueden completar el formulario en línea: ingrese el código de salto BCY3 en lps.org para acceder al formulario, o visite el Centro de Consejería de LSW para registrarse, ya sea según le sea necesario o de forma repetida (orden permanente). Hay una cantidad de alimentos para el desayuno, productos enlatados y muchas cosas deliciosas para comer de inmediato o guardar en sus armarios para más tarde, ¡todo gratis! Déjenos saber si podemos ayudar

ParentVUE

Synergy ParentVUE is a component of the Lincoln Public Schools Student Information portal that allows parents/guardians secure access to student grades (secondary), assignments, attendance information, and much more. ParentVUE will soon become the avenue for parents/guardians to verify student enrollment in LPS, replacing the paper Census Form returned to the school at the beginning of each year.

The District has a goal of ensuring at least one parent/guardian per household has activated their ParentVUE account. If you haven’t yet activated yours, please contact the school office for an activation key.
