Good evening Lee High School families and staff,
This is Nate Collins, principal of Lee High, and this is your Weekly Update for the week of October 16th, 2017.
First, thank you for your understanding last week as we worked to resolve concerns regarding threatening comments and student safety. Please know that all concerns were thoroughly investigated and resolved last week. Student safety and well-being are always of primary importance, and we will always work proactively to ensure a safe and supportive school environment. If, at any time, you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me!
As a reminder, if you haven’t done so recently, take time to check your phone call and messaging settings in Parent Portal, and update them if necessary. Our Main Office staff can assist you with this, if needed.
Coming up this week at Lee High:
Seniors are reminded that you have a very important meeting with Josten’s representatives at 8:30 am on Monday morning.
Please remember, also, that Report Cards for the first quarter will be distributed on Tuesday, October 17th.
Students currently enrolled in English 11 will take the Writing SOL Test on Tuesday, October 17th and Wednesday, October 18th. Be sure to be well prepared for these important tests – get a good night’s sleep and have a good breakfast each day! Good luck to all who are testing this week!
Interested students and parents/guardians are also reminded that we have a FAFSA Information Session scheduled for 5:30 pm this Tuesday evening. Please join us if you would like to learn more about completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid.
Also, on Tuesday, we will have our initial meeting of the newly-formed Parent Advisory/Academic Boosters Organization at 6:00 pm. Thank to you all who have indicated an interest in supporting this group!
Please note that we’ll have a Club Day schedule this Friday. Also, we made improvements to our weekly Club Day schedule that will allow more students to be involved in a variety of clubs and activities. We’ll be sharing more information about this this week, and we expect the new Club Day schedule to be in place by the end of October.
