    Dear Charger Families,                                                                       August 14, 2020 

    I hope you have had a relaxing summer! I know many of you are curious and anxious about the upcoming school year. Staff on duty are busy making plans for many contingencies. The LSMS Building Health and Safety Plan was approved by district and will soon be posted on our website. This will explain the procedures we are taking at the school to ensure student and staff safety. We are working to make sure that our staff is trained and ready to continue effective teaching, regardless of green, yellow or red color category.  

    Student schedules in PowerSchool should be visible next week if parents have updated their information after March 1, 2020. If household information has not been updated, student schedules will not show up until a week before school begins. 

     Schedules will show Team 1 (T1) or Team 2 (T2), which indicates which days your student will attend in the blended model (see chart below)The class schedule you will see in PowerSchool will show course registration choices from last spring and is subject to change as we work to balance student numbers. If you need assistance setting up a PowerSchool account, please call us at 208-350-4060.

    Orientation (Charger Camp) for our incoming 6th graders and new to LSMS students will be in a virtual format, due to COVID-19 and construction concerns. New restrooms, with hallway wash stations, are currently under major construction 

    Thank you for your continued support. The safety of our students and staff is of utmost importance. As we receive new informationwe will communicate it to our valued Charger families.
