Update 3/16/20: The school counseling office was in the middle of course scheduling for the 20-21 school year when we closed. Currently, no course scheduling information will be due on March 26 due to the closure of LCPS. Our timeline will be adjusted but as information is changing, we are awaiting direction. As soon as decisions are made, we will notify you as to the next steps in our course scheduling process. Thank you for your patience.
