LPHS Announcements

  • What's Going On the Week of October 25th

    Dear families,

    By now you are aware that we have multiple members in our school community who have tested positive for COVID. Please understand that we are doing everything possible to protect our staff and students. Although the 14 day quarantine is far from ideal, the protocol set by El Paso County Public Health is allowing us to maintain continuity of learning to the greatest extent possible. Staff is encouraged to provide students who are ill or quarantined every opportunity to stay connected and learn remotely alongside their peers. 

    In response to student, parent, and staff feedback, we have made some very significant changes to Flex days. Please read below with the understanding that in building attendance may be required for some students. You and your student should receive notification from a teacher by Tuesday, 10/27/20 if your student is highly encouraged to come into the building to receive academic support.

    Also, given the pending weather- in the event of a snow day, the hybrid schedule will just shift and there will not be a flex day this week. We will post an updated calendar on the website. 

    There are important opportunities for parents and students to connect with me this week and share any celebrations or concerns you may have. See info below. 

    Thank you for your continued partnership, patience and understanding through this constantly changing landscape.

    The Secondary Online Program is now accepting enrollments for the Spring 2021 term.   If you are interested in learning more about the Lewis-Palmer School District Secondary Online Program, please reach out to our school registrar: Dawn Klein, dklein@lewispalmer.org. You will then receive pertinent information and have the ability to engage in the enrollment process.  Course sections are built based on student interest expressions and we therefore ask that this is completed by November 6, 2020.  Online classes start on January 5, 2021 and are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.  Due to the forecasted increase in interest for online learning, enrollment options will begin to rapidly diminish as the second semester draws near.


    Please Note: Beginning November 1st all student email addresses in IC will be updated to reflect their LP student email address.  This should help streamline  all communications from teachers and the school being sent to one unified place.

    Ways To Support our LP Rangers

    Dear LPHS families

    LPHS Booster Club is looking for creative ways to support our school, kids, teams and clubs. Although this school year obviously looks different from past years, there is still a need to fundraise to give back to LPHS Athletics and Clubs.

    Please consider participating in both King Soopers Community Rewards and Amazon Smile. A percentage of your shopping will be donated to LPHS Booster Club with no cost or hassle to you. They are both super easy and profitable ways to virtually support LPHS!


    ~ Sign into your King Soopers account (very easy to create, if you haven’t logged on before)

    ~ Link your King Soopers loyalty card to:

    Lewis Palmer High School Athletic Booster Club (E1075)



    ~ Sign into your amazon account

    (You must be on smile.amazon.com for your purchases to count towards a donation)

    ~ Link your Amazon smile account to:
