LPHS Announcements

  • Message from Principal O'Connor - Remote Learning

    Dear LPHS Families,

    “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”- Mister Rogers

    We aspire to be the helpers during this challenging situation. Please do not hesitate to reach out to the LPHS staff as we are here to support you. 

    While we realize that this learning model may not be ideal, under the circumstances, we believe this is the best model for our school community. It allows for teacher remote instructional autonomy and flexibility in ensuring that they are able to utilize the best instructional methods possible. It is important that our students are able to understand the content while also maintaining some structure, community, accountability, and familiarity for our students. 

    • Teachers will post daily assignments and instructions, for the applicable block rotation day (Orange or Black) by 7:30 AM, using that teacher’s online platform (such as Google Classroom or Canvas) communicated by the individual teachers. This includes assignments, attendance method/task, meeting time, and any necessary links so students will know how their classes will be managed each day.
    • Teachers will send students an email on March 30 to let them know what platform they will be using.
    • All teachers should also publish what their “Office Hours” will be so that students know when teachers are available to provide support for students. 
    • The time the student would normally attend that teacher’s class is still reserved for that teacher so they can post that they will do an online discussion or discussion board during their designated time.
    • Participation is defined as connecting with a teacher, submitting an assignment, logging in, etc. This will be marked in the attendance area of IC. 
    • Students are encouraged to follow their class Orange day Tu/Thu and Black day Wed/Fri by working on specific classes during the designated time in their schedule.
    • Other remote learning plan notable items:
    • If you are having trouble with a device or access, please reach out to devicesupport@lewispalmer.org. 
    • Students: remember to check your school email account several times a day for important information. (first.lastname@lewispalmer.org)
    •  Click this Link to Remote Learning Plan and Resources for quick reference and the most current information. 
    • A huge thank you to Rhonda Spradling and the many contributors to the website resources.  We are trying to also make this site a place where students can go to get ideas on how to stay connected to our awesome LP community.  We will be partnering with LPTV, Journalism, performing arts, PE, Sources, Stuco to add items like: Humans of LP, mindfulness and gratitude practices, and of course staying current in our sense of humor.

    Our teachers understand that each student is dealing with his/her own unique circumstances and will work with students and be flexible within boundaries based on those circumstances. We all understand that communication, grace, and flexibility is key to being successful during this challenging time. On that note, please keep in mind that our own staff members are trying to teach through their own unique circumstances. Many teachers have their own children at home and are trying to teach while parenting simultaneously. 

    We will get through this together and emerge stronger on the other side.

    Take Care-

    Bridget O'Connor

    About the Next Few Weeks

    Lewis-Palmer High School is preparing to launch Remote Learning for our students on March 31, 2020. Our teachers will be using our Canvas LMS, Google Classroom, or another curriculum delivery system. On March 30, teachers will send an email to students and parents to let them know which system they are using to post assignments. Students are encouraged to communicate with teachers via email and other methods that the teacher indicates.

    Remote Learning days are designed to provide connections and continuity of instruction. What this will look like for our students is that every scheduled school day of Remote Learning, teachers will post activities/assignments for the classes that are scheduled to meet that day. Teachers may also use tools such as Google Meet to hold synchronous sessions with students during their regularly scheduled class time; these sessions will allow for a virtual classroom environment in which students can connect directly with the teacher and with other students.

    No grades will be given 3/30-4/10. The focus will be on connections and continuity of learning. Students will also be using feedback from teachers to move toward building skills and mastery of Remote Learning objectives.

    Student Expectations

    Students should spend at least 1 hour per week on class work for each class. These time designations are minimums, and students should plan on more time for courses such as AP classes.

    Students should:

    1. Log into Canvas/Google Classroom/Other Platform daily and access that day’s scheduled courses. Activities for each class will be posted no later than 7:30am on the day the class meets. Reserve normal class times for the class in their schedule; teachers may be asking students to join a live class session during that class time.
    2. Check their school email account several times per day for updates and information from teachers.  
    3. Watch / read the lesson / participate in any real time instruction.
    4. Complete the assignments / assessments.
    5. Check teacher feedback.

    Students who need help should consult the resources posted here and should feel free to reach out to their teachers.

    Student Participation & Engagement

    Teachers will be using the Attendance tab in Infinite Campus to document student participation and engagement each day of Remote Learning. Students will be considered present for class if they have connected with the teacher in some way, such as submitting an assignment, logging into the Learning Management System and reviewing activities, participating in a live meeting or class discussion, or otherwise interacting with the curriculum in some manner that is evident to the teacher.

    Lewis-Palmer D38 Teacher Wish Lists

    Looking for an easy way to do something for our fantastic D38 staff? Check out our teacher wishlists on the Clear the List Facebook page. Many of our teachers have made wishlists on Amazon - all you have to do is find their list on the Facebook page and make a purchase. Please send your package to their school, and include the teacher or department name in the address. So far the response has been fantastic and our teachers truly appreciate everything we do for them. If you do not see your favorite teacher's list, ask them to make one and then send the link to the Facebook page. Happy shopping!

    Booster Club, Amazon and King Soopers

    The Booster Club is now linked with Amazon Smile and King Soopers. By choosing the Lewis-Palmer High School Athletic Booster Club as your nonprofit of choice, a percentage of your purchase will be donated back to the Booster Club, which then gets passed on to our teams at the end of the school year.

    Just search Amazon Smile for our nonprofit, and link your King Soopers card to the Lewis-Palmer High School Athletic Booster Club.

    Please contact the Booster Club if you have any questions.
    Thank you for supporting our students!
