Our Varsity Indians play St. Francis this Friday, and their school is only allowing 35% of stadium capacity at home football games. The Band of Gold will not travel on Friday, but the football team and cheerleaders will. Lumpkin County is only allowed 125 tickets. These will be offered to families of football players and cheerleaders at only 2 tickets per athlete. If attending, please respond to the email from the coach and tickets will be sent home through your athlete. If you don’t have a ticket when arriving at stadium, you will not be able to enter.

Speaking from experience, it is often hard to help students realize the impact of science on society much less the global decisions made for society as a result of science. Providing them with laboratory type experiences helps them make that connection. Ms. Westafer's science classes are taking it one GIANT leap further by conducting research here on campus that could provide insight and clarity for a real global issue. Hats off to Ms. Westafer for making science come alive for Environmental Science classes this year. I am excited to analyze the data they collect and read through their theories and suggestions at the end. Together we are making a difference at Lumpkin County High School. #FocusedForward

Congratulations to Head Girls Soccer Coach, Don Brock, on being named a Blitz Legendary Coach! We couldn’t agree more! #TR1BE https://blitzsportsga.com/2020/06/24/legendary-coaches-2020/
TR1BE, With so much uncertainty remaining as we navigate our days, weeks, and months, we know that many questions are swirling concerning the plans of our upcoming school year. We could put out a plan today that would likely need to change multiple times as health concerns and guidance changes over time. We are not behind the eight ball. Rather, we are taking things seriously, studying our options, and formulating research-based plans of action for the new school year. Our leadership team in Lumpkin County is currently meeting through email, virtually, and in person to work out details for the following areas: student and staff wellness, facilities, technology, school nutrition, transportation, instruction, assessment, and virtual learning. These focus groups will work in coordination with our school board to publish a final plan in mid-July. In the meantime, it’s important for you all to know this—student safety has been, is, and always will be our top priority in Lumpkin County. As parents, you will have a face-to-face option and a virtual option for your children. What those look like will be determined by the findings of our focus groups over the next month. Rest assured, we are working tirelessly to provide the best education in the safest environment possible for your children. We know other school systems are posting their tentative plans now, and we want you to know that we aren’t asleep on this topic. We like to take a calculated, strategic approach to our planning process. If you have questions or concerns that you would like to share with any of the focus groups mentioned above, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. We will be sure to pass along your correspondence to the focus group leader. Thank you for your continued support of Lumpkin County Schools!

Lumpkin County High School announces their FIRST ever Spirit Week Challenge! We recognize that learning at home brings about new challenges that most of our students have never faced before. One big challenge is feeling alone in the learning process and missing out on the social interaction that helps students feel connected and part of a positive school culture. Next week, we would like our student body to complete assignments as posted, talk to their teachers via email to stay connected, and to participate in our Spirit Challenge to reinforce their connection to this TR1BE.

We would like to take an opportunity to apologize for today's power outage and confusion with release time. Within a couple minutes of making the decision to release at 1:00 PM, power was restored. In order to not have multiple bus runs this afternoon, the responsible thing to do was allow car riders and parent pick up to release at 1:00 PM, but keep bus riders here until normal release time. During the entire event, all students were safe and cared for by our teachers. We did our best to communicate the play-by-play, and we are sincerely sorry for the inconvenience this has caused any of of our families. We hope you enjoy the sunshine and you have a good weekend! #TR1BE
Power has been restored at LCHS. Busses will run at normal times. Student drivers and parent pick-up may leave at 1:00 pm at no penalty. There will be NO learning lab today.

As we look forward to this event, we begin to reflect on the days, months, and years of experiences they have had with us as they worked towards this goal. Please take a minute to write a short note to one or more of our graduates that you have impacted and helped prepare for graduation. Help us celebrate our students and wish them well as they begin their journey into adulthood.
If your student is interested in Healthcare or Film, tomorrow we will have Jamie Taylor, a Film Industry Medic, present during Lunch & Learn in the College & Career!
