Welcome to LWHS! A High School Primer - For Parents From Parents

Originally presented September 9 and 10, 2020 


Click here for the slide show 


This presentation was designed for families of Freshmen and others new to our school community. It included lots of information about the High School experience, both district-wide and specific to LWHS, and addressed some common questions.

Whether you joined the live presentation or just viewed our slides, we would LOVE for you to take our very brief survey to help us make this event better and hear what other info sessions you might be interested in attending. Take our survey here -

Please note: this presentation is geared around a “normal” school year but most information still applies.

College Application Workshop Update

College Application Workshop Update
Like every other PTSA program during the pandemic, we are working hard to find the best options available so we can continue to provide essay and personal statement support to college bound seniors. We hope to have a solution that follows the guidelines set forth by the district in terms of safety, supervision and accessibility in time to meet the students’ needs.
Parents of seniors: We will reach out to you specifically with information when we have more.
In the meantime, there are plenty of online resources available but here are a couple to get you started:

Thanks for your patience and we hope to meet your student soon!
