Principal's Message

September 2020


Hello Lancer Nation,

First, let me say that I am excited to be the new Principal of Lakewood High School and I cannot wait to get to meet all of you and work along side with you as we support the Lancers of Today in becoming our Leaders of Tomorrow!

Please know that all of us at Lakewood High School are all working to get school started effectively and efficiently by September 1st.  Details will be communicated with you as they become available.  Today's communication is to help clarify how school will open this year and why you are being asked to choose between Hybrid A/B or Online Only.  We are all starting with virtual learning, so your selection on ParentVue is to let us know if or when we are able to bring students on campus (A/B), do you plan to send your student back or will they remain completely online. 

Details about textbook distribution and request for course selection changes will be coming next week.  Textbooks will be distributed the week of August 17 - August 28 by pathway and grade level.  We will also be following up with you in terms of chromebooks, internet access and any other issues that you may be having to make sure that we are all ready to start school on Tuesday, September 1st.

There are several FAQ's on the District website.  I encourage you to read through them if you have any questions.  

Have a great weekend and may everything be as "Good in the Wood" as is possible!

Ms. Merlo
