Next year's block schedule allows students to take 7 classes within a regular school day but ALL students can meet or exceed A-G requirements and graduation requirements within a 6 period day (with the exception of students needing credit recovery).  With a 7 class schedule you will be unscheduled one period of the day resulting in a late start day every other day. 

 

Last year many families found the every other day late start created a transportation problem and preferred to take only 6 courses during the school day so the start time was consistently 9:16 am.  If you would prefer a late start every day or early release daily at 1:05 pm and only six classes, please submit a Special Schedule Request now to help facilitate addressing your needs for 2018-19. Return the attached form to the Lakewood High School Counseling Department no later than Monday, June 18th if you would like to request a 6 period schedule. Requests will be carefully considered and granted based on your student’s needs and class availability.  Once school starts in September, we may not be able to rearrange schedules or change classes to meet your needs.

Attention all 8th through 12th Grade Students:  Summer School Registration Begins Monday, April 9.

 

All 9th through 12th grade students who are interested in taking Summer School classes to make up a grade to meet graduation requirements or to fulfill college entrance requirements must register using our online enrollment system.  The online system will be available starting Monday, April 9.  Summer School registration will continue until April 27 at 5 p.m. 

 

Current 8th through 11th graders also have the opportunity to take a Math Summer Bridge course to help prepare them for the course work that they will be studying in the coming school year.  These courses include Pre-Algebra, Pre-Geometry and Pre-Intermediate Algebra.  These courses will be taken for elective credit and the grade issued will be a Pass/No Credit.  This is an excellent opportunity to get a jump start for next year. 

 

Summer School Registration will begin by completing the application online at www.lbschools.net/summer.  After the application is submitted, the student or parent will receive an immediate on screen confirmation that they have registered.  Two weeks after registering, parents and students will be able to view the courses that counselors have selected for your child to take during summer school.  If you would like to discuss the classes needed, please make an appointment with the counselor before May.  Please note that counselors will select summer school courses based on credit recovery needs, “a-g” completion needs or placement in a Math Bridge course.

 

Atención a todos los estudiantes del 8º a 12º grado escolar: Las inscripciones para las clases de verano en las escuelas preparatorias comienzan el lunes 9 de abril.

 

Todos los estudiantes del 9º a 12º grado escolar interesados en asistir a las clases de escuela de verano para poder cumplir con los requisitos de graduación o para cumplir con un requisito de admisión a la universidad deberán inscribirse a través de nuestro sistema de inscripciones en línea (por Internet). El sistema de inscripciones en línea estará disponible a partir del lunes 9 de abril. Las inscripciones para las clases de la escuela de verano continuarán hasta el 27 de abril a las 5pm. 

 

Los estudiantes que actualmente cursan 8º a 11º grado escolar también tienen la oportunidad de tomar un curso Puente de Matemáticas en el Verano como parte de su preparación para los cursos que estarán estudiando durante el próximo año lectivo. Estos cursos incluyen Pre-Álgebra, Pre- Geometría y Pre-Álgebra de Nivel Intermedio. Estos cursos electivos se tomarán como crédito electivo y la calificación que recibirán será “Aprobatoria/No Crédito”. Esta es una excelente oportunidad para poner en marcha el próximo ciclo escolar.  

 

Las inscripciones para la escuela de verano iniciarán llenando la solicitud en línea en www.lbschools.net/summer. Después de entregar la solicitud, el estudiante o padre de familia recibirá una confirmación por correo electrónico indicando su inscripción. Dos semanas después de la inscripción, los padres y estudiantes podrán ver los cursos que los consejeros han elegido para que su hijo(a) tome durante la escuela de verano. Si desea hablar acerca de las clases necesarias, favor de hacer una cita con el consejero antes de mayo. Favor de notar que los consejeros seleccionarán los cursos de verano basado en los créditos de recuperación necesarios, necesidad de cumplir con los requisitos “a-g” o colocación en el curso puente de matemáticas.

Threat Prevention

 

Hello, Students and Families.

 

As we’ve seen in recent weeks, our schools are not immune to the potential threats that so many other schools nationwide have been dealing with.  We appreciate your heightened awareness of this issue, and we continue to encourage everyone in our school communities to report any suspicious information or activity that could impact school safety.

 

Threats to our schools are not harmless, and they are not funny.  They take valuable resources and time from our school district and the law enforcement agencies who work with us each day to keep our schools safe.  Threats cause anxiety for parents, students and staff, and they can disrupt the important work of teaching and learning.  Students who make threats face consequences that linger long after the threat is made.  We reiterate the Long Beach Police Department’s recent statement about such threats:

 

“The Long Beach Police Department takes all potential threats of violence very seriously and thoroughly investigates all reported incidents,” Chief Robert Luna said. “Making any kind of threat whether in person or online, is illegal and has serious consequences.”

 

Those consequences, as we also have seen in recent weeks, can include suspension, expulsion, arrest and potential prosecution under the law.  Students who make threats, even as a “joke,” can quickly find themselves facing the entire range of these consequences. 

 

We urge parents to discuss this matter with their children.  In light of the senseless loss of lives in recent school shootings nationally, it is completely inappropriate and unacceptable to make threats, even as a “joke.”

 

We have appreciated everyone’s support during this challenging time.  Again, we continue to encourage students, parents and staff to immediately report any information that could impact the safety of others.  With your help, we can continue to provide safe schools and the best possible education for our students.

 

Sincerely,

Chris

 

Christopher J. Steinhauser
Superintendent of Schools

 

Prevención de amenazas

 

Hola, estudiantes y familias.

 

Como hemos visto en las últimas semanas, nuestras escuelas no son inmunes a las posibles amenazas que otras escuelas a nivel nacional han estado enfrentando. Agradecemos su intensificada concienciación sobre este problema y seguimos animando a todos dentro de nuestras comunidades escolares a reportar toda información o actividad sospechosa que pudiera afectar la seguridad escolar.

 

Las amenazas a nuestras escuelas no son inocentes y no son graciosas.  Le quitan recursos valiosos y tiempo a nuestro distrito escolar y a las agencias del orden público quienes trabajan con nosotros cada día para mantener nuestras escuelas seguras.  Las amenazas les provocan ansiedad a los padres de familia, los estudiantes y al personal y pueden interrumpir la importante tarea de enseñar y aprender.  Los estudiantes que hacen estas amenazas enfrentan consecuencias que perduran por mucho tiempo después de haberlas hecho.  Reiteramos la reciente declaración del Departamento de Policía de Long Beach sobre estas amenazas:

 

El jefe de policía Robert Luna dijo, “el Departamento de Policía de Long Beach toma muy en serio todas las posibles amenazas de violencia e investiga completamente todos los incidentes reportados.”   “Hacer cualquier tipo de amenaza, ya sea en persona o por internet, es ilegal y tiene consecuencias graves.” 

 

Tales consecuencias, como también hemos visto en las recientes semanas, pueden incluir suspensión, arresto y un posible procesamiento legal.  Los estudiantes que hacen amenazas, aún en forma de “broma,” pueden encontrarse rápidamente enfrentando la gama completa de estas consecuencias. 

 

Instamos a los padres de familia a platicar con sus hijos de este asunto.  A consecuencia de la pérdida sin sentido de vidas en los recientes tiroteos escolares a nivel nacional, es completamente inapropiado e inaceptable hacer estas amenazas, ni siquiera en forma de “broma.”

 

Agradecemos el apoyo de todos durante este tiempo difícil.  Seguimos animando a los estudiantes, los padres de familia y al personal a que reporten inmediatamente cualquier información que pudiera tener un impacto en la seguridad de otras personas.  Con su ayuda, podemos seguir proporcionando escuelas seguras y la mejor educación posible para nuestros estudiantes.

 

Sinceramente,

 

Chris

Starting this week all high school students and their parents in the Long Beach Unified School District will receive customized College Readiness Guides.  The guides – based upon each student’s course history, grade point average, test scores and other factors – provide an overview of readiness for various California public colleges and universities, along with suggested next steps for students and parents. The aim of the seven-page reports is to take the mystery out of college preparation.  The guides were created with feedback from parents who wanted practical, “how-to” information on college readiness. View a sample guide. Students will be able to view their own reports online in their StudentVUE portal.  Parents can review their children’s reports in the ParentVUE portal. 

 

Join us on Tuesday, October 17th at 6:00 pm in the Lakewood High School Library for a Parent Workshop on How to Use Your College Readiness Guide.  Our College Counseling Team will be ready to answer your questions and to walk you through these how-to information guides.

 

PTSA meeting will follow at 7:00 pm.
