ALL SCHOOL INFORMATION
Event Date Changes!!! - Due to the standings for football, either LC or Meridian will finish in 3 rd place. The 3 rd place team would play on Tuesday, November 5; therefore we’ve had to move the Friday, November 1 game to Thursday, October 31 to give the student-athletes a chance to physically recover. This is in the best interest of student safety. Moving the football game impacts the LCHS Fall Music Concert (Band/Orchestra/Choir) originally scheduled for Thursday evening, October 31 @ 7:00 pm. After considering different options and the availability of our music students, THE CONCERT HAS BEEN MOVED TO THURSDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 31 @ 9:20 am (during HS chapel in the WFAC).
 
Updated Events!
Thursday, October 31: LC v Meridian FB – 7:00 pm
Friday, November 1: LCHS Fall Concert – 7:00 pm
