Most Fridays throughout the year are designated Spirit Gear days on which students can wear any approved spirit gear shirts. Spirit gear items may be purchased through our online Spirit Store, or by appointments (when offered) in the campus Spirit Store located in the Byers Center. On Red Out days everyone is encouraged to wear red spirit gear or an Eagle Red shirt. Eagle Red shirts are sold at the beginning of the school year.
We do offer lunch purchase options from different vendors each day, ordered a week in advance. Some items, such as chips and Gatorade, are sold as a la carte items in the cafeteria. These items can be purchased without a preorder, and are paid for with cash or through the student’s FACTS account. Parents can place money on that account through an available app. More information can be found in the Resource Depot and updated information is sent out before school starts.
There are several methods the school uses to communicate with Eagle families. Download the LCCS App from your app store. The app and our website will be invaluable tools throughout the year. The app will give you secure log-in access to features in your FACTS account such as lunch orders, financials, and your child’s academic info. Through both, you can easily access public features like school calendars, athletics schedules, and information from organizations like our PTO and Booster Club. We house important documents and policies in Resource Depots that are divided into key areas to make it easier for you to find what you need. Examples include school supply lists, handbooks, newsletter archives, and other forms/links. During the school year, we send a weekly newsletter via email to all our Eagle families.
Getting Ready for the Year:
As mentioned in the communication section, on our school website you will find Resource Depots that are full of information for students and parents. Visit the Resource Depot for your child’s grade level to find School Supply lists (including iPad specifications and required Apps for 7th-12th grade) that will be needed to start the school year off right. Middle school families should note that our 8th grade DC/NY trip is typically in February.
Every 7th-12th grade student is responsible for purchasing an iPad with the appropriate requirements to use in the classroom and at home each day. New students in grades 7-12 attend one of several Tech Boot Camps offered during the summer (not offered in 2021 due to construction). These camps are come-and-go opportunities that allow us to set up critical programs on the iPad that students will need when school starts and ensures they don’t miss critical emails and information before the year begins. Students in grades K-6 will have 1:1 access to a school iPad, and Pre-K may share classroom devices.
After School Care:
Our after-school care serves students Pre-K through 5th grade until 5:00 or 6:00 p.m., for an additional fee. Additional details on extended care will be available in the school office or the Elementary Resource Depot.
It can be challenging to learn your way around a new campus. The Drop-off and Pick-up Map will be helpful as you learn your way around LCCS.
Back to School Celebration:
We host an evening in August as a fun Eagle family way to kick off the new school year. This is a great opportunity to hear from the Head of School, meet and greet other Eagle families, take care of things like picking up Eagle Red shirts, or learn more about many LCCS programs. There is also a designated evening to drop off supplies and meet the teacher a few days before school starts. New students will be notified of orientation times that might apply to their grade level.
Our PTO benefits our students and teachers in many ways throughout the year. The group coordinates events ranging from the annual uniform resale to Teacher Appreciation Week. You will want to stop by the PTO table during the Back to School Celebration. Attending a PTO coffee during the year is a great way to get connected with other Eagle parents. PTO sponsors many Spirit Nights at local businesses throughout the year where Eagle families can gather together to visit over a meal and know their purchases support the school. They also coordinate “free money opportunities” that allow you to support the school through purchases you are already making for your family. These are excellent opportunities for friends and extended family to join in channeling support to LCCS!
