*High school enrollment is right around the corner for 8th grade students! An important component in the transition process is the informational meetings at the six LPS high schools in January. These meetings are designed to welcome you and your student into the high school and meet with counselors and instructional staff to learn about the opportunities available at that school. Since students entering ninth grade may choose the high school they want to attend in LPS, these meetings have been scheduled to give you the opportunity to attend more than one high school meeting before the January 31st deadline for submitting the High School Choice form.
The schedule for the informational meetings is:
Wednesday, January 10th, 2018 East High School 6:30 PM
Thursday, January 11th, 2018 Southwest High School 6:30 PM
Tuesday, January 16th, 2018 Southeast High School 6:30 PM

Monday, January 22nd, 2018 Northeast High School 6:30 PM

If you have further questions regarding information nights, please call the appropriate high school’s counseling center.
