personnel issues.
 
The LSC meets the second Thursday of each month at LPHS at 6:30 pm -- usually in Room 112 unless attendance is expected to exceed the room's capacity, in which case the agenda and/or signage posted at the school entrance will reflect any change. Meetings may also be attended virtually via ZOOM, via the link provided at the top of each agenda.   Each month's agenda is posted at least two days before each meeting on the board outside the school's main entrance, and is also distributed to our school community by email at the same time the agenda is posted.
