Principal Welcome Letter
Dear Lansing High Students, Parents, and Community Stakeholders,
I am excited to be a part of the USD 469 and LHS staff in my fourth year as principal of Lansing High School. The 2021-2022 school year will bring a return to many of the “normal” school activities we have had in previous years. We are blessed to have an abundance of good kids that represent themselves, their families, our school, and this community positively. Our school is honored to be able to serve such a superb community.
Our educational vision is a community where every citizen values and maximizes their own education and commits to supporting the highest quality of learning opportunities for all children and adults. In working to achieve this vision, we will ask students to regularly collaborate, critically think, and work with and through adversity. We hope to ignite learning curiosity in all of our students.
This year also brings a few changes. Much of the bell schedule will be similar to the start of the 2019-20 school year. All classes will meet for 49 minutes three days a week (M,T,F), while Wednesday hours 1,3,5, and 7 and Thursday hours 2,4,and 8 will meet for 88 minutes. Sixth hour is our CCR, and it meets every day for varying lengths of time. Classes begin on M,T,W, and F at 8:00 and at 9:05 on Thursday. The building will open every day at 7:25 am. We are also giving students a second chance at breakfast with a grab and go option at a 10-minute break in class about 9:30 every day but Thursday. We are also excited to open attendance at extracurricular events. Attendance will only be limited by the number of seats available in our facilities this year. As the year progresses, I will continue to work with staff and students to analyze policies and practices to recognize areas that can be updated to improve the learning environment for teachers and students.
If you have questions regarding classroom activities, please contact the teacher. If your concern is regarding overall programs, curriculum, discipline, or activities, please contact me directly via email or phone.
We are glad to have you and your family as part of the Lansing Lion family. We want you to know our mission is to provide students the opportunity to develop the scholastic, technical, social and life-long skills essential for academic, occupational, and personal success as productive citizens. With the help and cooperation of all stakeholders, this will be a great school year.
Principal – Lansing High School
