News and Events
Please see this document for important dates and graduation information for seniors and their parents. Besides earning enough credits, another important requirement for graduation is to find lost books, return uniforms, and pay any outstanding fees owed to any of the schools from this and previous years. Please check Parent Portal to see if your student has any outstanding fees and encourage him to return or pay for the items. If you would like to order a professional DVD of the graduation ceremony, Johnson Video will be available at the concession stand on the home side of the stadium to take orders. Order forms are available at the concession stand or on our website. Seniors who did not purchase a cap, gown, and diploma cover from Jostens will need to either pay for their diploma cover before graduation or turn it in when they pick up their diploma in the activity building. Diploma covers are $14 each.

We will have coverage through the end of the year this year, by way of a new feature called Time Capsule. We will continue to take pictures of events up through Graduation Day 2014 and upload them to our LCHS Trojan 2014 Time Capsule site. All students who buy a yearbook will receive a code in the yearbook that allows them online access to ALL photos after our March print deadline. For the first time we will be able to feature, in depth, all events that we normally don't have time to cover as we should. That means that baseball, soccer, golf, tennis, track, Prom, Spring Musical, Senior Picnic, and yes, even graduation will be photographed and shared through our Time Capsule! If you know of any event or sport that is not listed here that you want covered, please let the yearbook staff know. Please spread the word and continue to share your photographs on ReplayIt.com!
