FROM THE PRINCIPAL'S OFFICE
My youngest son said something yesterday that’s been rolling around in my head ever since.
We’ve been been talking a lot recently about “post-pandemic” teaching, and how we, as educators, are gearing up for the inevitable social-emotional needs that students will have when they do finally return to school.

I had shared that this event and all of its isolation and anxiety and lack of familiar routine was going to be undoubtedly traumatizing to many of our students and adults and that I was concerned about managing a system in which there was that much Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) rolling around.

He remarked, “When a broken bone is mending, we don’t say that the healing process is ‘disordered’. When a scar forms, we don’t call the mark a ‘disorder’. Why is it that when people are engaged in emotional healing, we say that the process is a disorder?”

It got me to thinking.

We will definitely see changed behaviors in students when they return to us.

Students will likely be less well able to focus, sometimes quicker to frustration or anger, perhaps more in need of reassurance, almost certainly more than ever wanting opportunities to reknit connections and relationships.

But I love the idea that we, as the grownups, can look at these behavioral changes not as evidence of disorder, but as signs of healing.

I think we can reframe things for students so that they can see themselves not as having inappropriate responses, not being weak, but rather, as engaging in growth and healing and becoming more fully every day the remarkable and resilient young people the world needs them most to be.

And frankly, reframing this work in this way is helpful for me, too. I really like the idea of spending my days surrounded not by people who are experiencing “disorder” – but by people who are all helping one another recover and re-create themselves in really good and positive ways.
Thanks for the thinking, Duncan. Mom loves you!

END OF THE YEAR SCHOOL CHECK OUT
In order to facilitate textbook return, locker clean-out, yearbook pick up, fine payments, and school check out, students will be given a specific time frame to come to LC to complete all of the tasks. Students should be able to move through the process in no more than 15 minutes.

We will be employing social distancing practices to keep all students and staff safe, so we ask that students wear a face mask while in the building. We are limiting the number of people allowed in the building at any one time, so if possible, please do not come as groups or bring siblings who do not attend LC. Please do your best to come on the day and time you are assigned (see the red links below).

If you or a parent has been ill in the last 10 days, please do not come to school, but please contact us to make alternate arrangements at 354-6888. We will work on a plan to return items to students that aren't able to come to LC.

Good News: Congratulations to the 2020 Emerging Artist Found [at home] Object Jewelry Contest winners. This contest was open to all art students - not just CTE - at Lewis & Clark High School. Student artists could submit entries in one of two categories: Jewelry or Metal Sculpture that serves a function. The contest was judged by two professional metal artists who have won awards for their own metal art work and are authors and instructors in this field as well.
 
The contest was sponsored by Rio Grande, a world-wide supplier of jewelry tools and supplies. Each winner received a gift certificate for 1st Place ($100), 2nd Place ($50), or 3rd Place ($30). In addition, Victoria Lansford also sponsored the contest by giving a video download of her work, "Rings" to each of the winners.

“Multilayer Barbell Necklace” by: Letty Garcia Hernandez
 
I made this necklace because it looks so fancy and pretty. This project looks difficult to make but is not too much. This necklace is good for a party and I like that it's so pretty. The materials I used are: wire tools, scissors, amethyst beads, pearls, chain, and pins.
Metal Sculpture 1st Place

This masterpiece is made completely out of junk metal, but it can add a slightly futuristic steampunk vibe to any place. Is great at holding office supplies.

SENIOR INFORMATION
Diploma Walk: On Sunday, June 7 from 8:00am to 6:00pm , you and your family are invited to attend the 1st “Lewis and Clark Diploma Walk” at Hart Field. Specific times for your participation will be in the graduation packets you pick up June 4 and 5 and HERE .

Once again, all social distancing guidelines must be adhered to from your time of arrival to your time of departure. Note: only one vehicle per family will be allowed to enter and the graduate must be in the car with the family . Graduates must wear face masks - Remember that your Commemorative Class of 2020 Masks will be provided at the “Senior Check-Out and Senior Pick-Up Days” on June 4 and 5 at Lewis and Clark. If you do not have a car to decorate or to drive you that day, we will provide escort for you to the staging area; simply walk to Hart and enter on 37th Avenue as described above. Families who wish to place signage on the fencing along the drive at Hart to celebrate their graduate may do so on Saturday. We ask that signs be no larger than standard poster board size and be limited to one per graduate.

Families are to arrive in their designated time slots entering Hart Field from 37th Avenue only. Family members must stay in the car and graduates will be instructed to stay in the car until directed to exit for the staging area. Only the graduate will be allowed to exit the vehicle and, again, can do so only when advised by staff. Due to social distancing rules, we are only allowed to have five people in the staging area at a time: the graduate, an administrator, a counselor, videographer, and photographer. Students will be allowed to remove their face masks to walk across the stage and claim their diplomas. Dorians will be on hand to snap a formal pic of each grad with their diploma – these pix will be available for later online purchase. Families will be able to pull up directly in front of the stage and cheer on their graduate while hearing their graduate’s name read, watching them walk across the stage, and having their pictures taken to become a certified Alumnus of Lewis and Clark High School Class of 2020. (The onsite videographer will use the footage taken that day to use in the “LCHS Virtual Graduation Ceremony” that will be broadcast on KSPS later in the month.) Vehicles will exit Hart Field at Manito Boulevard. We ask that you respect neighbors and assist in the flow of traffic through Hart Field by exiting the area immediately. 
 
We are so excited to be able to offer to you a horn-honking, family-cheering, car-decorated, (socially distant and mask-wearing) celebration of YOU! You are so deserving.
  1. Families enter off 37th Ave. at the track entrance (yellow arrows). Volunteers will be at entrance to greet families.
  2. Drive north towards the Field House. If necessary, cars can queue in the long driveway. Volunteers will be placed along the drive to keep traffic flowing.
  3. Graduate will exit the car at the green X for the diploma walk and Dorian’s pictures. See the zoomed in map for stations the graduate will move through.
  4. Parents will remain in car but will have unobstructed view for pictures.
  5. Families will exit west to Manito Blvd.- right turn required. (blue arrows).
Senior High School and Beyond Plan: One of the last steps in the graduation requirement process for Seniors is the completion of the required High School and Beyond Plan. Click here to complete your online plan. It should only take you about 10 minutes and you'll be one step closer to graduation!
Senior Fees: Seniors and Senior Parents - with graduation nearing, please go to the Online Payment System to see if you have any outstanding fines. Questions can be directed to the Business Office by phone, 354.6880 or they can email, nicolesim@spokaneschools.org . If seniors do not take care of the fines, they will not receive their diploma. We are working on a plan for seniors to return current textbooks and spring sports uniforms (these are not on your current fines list).
Senior All Nighter Update: Hello Seniors and Class of 2020 Families, don't give up hope just yet, the SAN Parent Volunteer Committee is still working hard to coordinate safe and fun senior celebrations for you! With graduation plans on hold, we have officially cancelled our reservation at the Kroc Center in CDA. In the coming weeks, we will be working closely with LC administration and staff to find new and creative ways to come together again, celebrate the Tiger Spirit, and honor the class of 2020 in style! In the meantime, if you already purchased SAN tickets and would like to request a refund, please contact: lctigerssan@gmail.com . If you are willing to donate your ticket cost or generous donation to the Class of 2020 celebrations, we thank you! Stay tuned for more updates to come soon...Roll Tigs!
College Financial Aid: Seniors, there is a FREE service that can help you understand the financial aid appeals process with instructions on what documents you'll need, how to write an appeal letter, and how to submit your information to your college financial aid office.

Fall 2020 Schedules: Our draft Fall 2020 schedules are now available on PowerSchool for students to view. These schedules are in very early DRAFT form and we have 94% of students fully scheduled (we are working on this every day to get to 100%). The next step is to ensure that all students have the correct and desired classes by logging into PowerSchool to check that the right classes are assigned and that nothing has been missed (click on Next Year’s Schedule, then look at the Matrix view - works best on a computer, the app doesn't show next year's classes). Please read the information below on how scheduling and change requests work :
  • If you don’t know how to get into PowerSchool, email theresam@spokaneschools.org.
  • If you have a hole in your schedule, that means you are one of the 6% that have scheduling issues. We are moving classes around to fix as many issues as possible. If we cannot find a solution, we will be emailing you directly to find a solution (the email will go to your MS365 account). This process will take time, so we thank you for your patience.
  • Your classes are confirmed, but the periods and teachers WILL change many times over the next few months. Sorry, but we cannot promise specific teachers or periods due to the fluidity of the schedule and very full classes. Please try to not get attached to a specific schedule because it will change every day (maybe even every hour). Note: There may still be a few classes that will be collapsed due to low enrollment. If you are in one of those classes, you will be put into one of your alternates.
  • If you signed up to be an Intern (Seniors only), we haven't assigned specific periods to that class yet. Over the next few weeks, you'll see it move into periods 1-6.
  • For errors or change requests: 1) if you need counselor support regarding the change, begin by emailing your counselor, or 2) if it is a straight forward change, you can email theresam@spokaneschools.org. You can see the changes reflected in PowerSchool once they are made. If a change cannot be made due to period conflicts or full classes, we will let you know.
  • MANY of our electives are full, which is why you may have been moved into an alternate elective that you entered into PowerSchool when you selected your classes in January. We cannot promise that we can get you into specific electives. If you were moved out of an elective that you need for graduation (ex. you are going to be a senior and you registered for CTE because you need the credit but you were moved into Art, please explain that in your request).
  • If you are a choice student from outside Spokane Public Schools, you will not be able to see your schedule online because you are considered "pre-registered" and there is a glitch that doesn't show your schedule. You can theresam@spokaneschools.org and a copy will be sent via email (but it will change many times).
  • If you are planning on taking SVL, please go online to register soon to ensure a spot at www.spokanevirtual.com. There may be some changes coming for SVL registration with the closure, when we know more, we will let you know. For now, SVL is listed on schedules as “pending”, in August, the real SVL courses will be merged into PowerSchool. If you no longer want to take the SVL class, email theresam@spokaneschools.org. Information about SVL registration can be found further down in the email.
  • If you are planning on enrolling in Running Start at the college, please contact your counselor to begin the process. Once you have a confirmed schedule, it is important to let us know that we can drop your LC classes (we understand that this process might be delayed as well due to the colleges being closed for now).

REMINDERS
Follow Us: Follow us on Facebook and YouTube !
District Logins for Students: When students return for the new school year, they will have one less username and password to remember. Students will log in to their computer with their Office365 username and their eight-digit birth date (MMDDYYYY).  For reference, students’ Office 365 username is their Last Name + last 4 digits of their student ID followed by @sps81.org . Example: Smith4543@sps81.org . Consistent with prior student experience, when a student logs in to their computer with this new username/password, this will automatically log them into Clever, Blackboard, Office 365 and most other District applications.
Join the LC Booster Club: Are you a parent of an Lewis and Clark student? If the answer is yes, then you are a Booster Club member!

After the first two free months expire, you can either cancel the service (which you can do at any time) or keep it as a regular paying Internet Essentials customer ($9.95/month). You will receive an easy to use self-install-kit that includes a cable modem (to receive service at your home) with a WiFi router (to connect your devices without wires). There is no term contract or credit check and no shipping fee for equipment. You can apply at: https://apply.internetessentials.com/

You may qualify if:
  • You are eligible for public assistance programs such as Free/Reduced Lunch (National Lunch Program), Housing Assistance, Medicaid, SNAP, SSI.
  • You do not have outstanding debt to Comcast that is less than a year old. Families with outstanding debt more than one year old may still be eligible.
  • You live in an area where Comcast Internet service is available but have not subscribed to it within the last 90 days.
Absences: If your student is going to be absent, please call our attendance hotline to excuse the absence at 354-6968. Please leave a message with your name, your student's name, clearly spelling out the last name, how long your student will be absent, and the reason for the absence. An unexcused absence will generate an automated phone call home. If your child is going to have an extended absence, please have them go to the Student Office to pick up an Extended Absence Sheet to give teacher advanced notice of the absence.
