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.
