End of Year Updates for JSHS Students/Parents/Guardians

Please note the following change. We will be delaying the National Honor Society induction for grades seventh through 11th until the fall. We will honor current seniors via a virtual moving up day. More details to follow.

Schools to Remain Closed Through the End of the School Year

As you may already know, the Pennsylvania Department of Education has closed all schools for the remainder of the 2019–2020 academic year. However, education will continue.

Like you, I am heartbroken for the members of the senior class that are missing opportunities only afforded in their final year. We are working diligently on plans to preserve graduation and assist each senior student in their transition post Lake-Lehman.

I recently conducted a virtual district staff meeting. We discussed next steps forward in our continuity of education plan. As stated in my previous letter, Lake-Lehman's plan is centered on enrichment and review. Starting on Tuesday, April 14, teachers will be introducing new material into their lessons.

This is not a new normal. It is an exercise in survival. I believe in the power of our community. Continue to support one another and be the voice of positivity. Most importunity, stay safe, and take care of your precious families.

Please take a moment to read Superintendent James E. McGovern's complete letter regarding the closure of schools for the remainder of the school year.

Updated Grading Procedures

We have given considerable thought as how to best calculate grades for the third and fourth marking periods. The belief at Lake-Lehman is that community, grace, and affirmation take precedence to grades as we help students master the remaining curriculum content with meaningful teacher feedback. Because we cannot ensure the integrity or validity of grades during online learning, our goal is to hold students harmless and take this time to dig deeper into the content of our core subject areas. We want to do all this while supporting the emotional well-being of each child during the COVID-19 pandemic.

There will be no incompletes issued for the third and fourth marking periods. We understand there can and will be extenuating circumstances under the guidelines of this scenario. Please communicate with your teacher, guidance counselor, or building principal if you experience any difficulties accessing or completing academic material in this new educational platform. Please see our updated grading procedures for more information.
