  • School fees for the 2021-22 school year will be $305 if paid prior to July 7, 2021 and $315 after that date. The fee may be paid online by visiting www.lths.org, choosing the Parents tab, and clicking on the ePay button on the Parents page.

    You will need your student’s ID number, above, when paying online. Fee waiver information will be available over the summer, or you may apply for a waiver during Freshman Orientation.

    All students taking PE are required to have a PE uniform, including heart rate strap. You may pay for these items via ePay, and pick them up during Freshman Orientation. Students who are enrolled in ROTC will receive more information about their program at a later date.

    Yearbook and School ID Photos

    All students must take a yearbook/ID photo during Orientation. Students are required to dress appropriately when they are photographed. No fee will be charged for the yearbook pictures. Picture packages may be purchased through Lifetouch; more information will follow regarding the ordering process. Students will leave Orientation with their student IDs and lanyards.

    Community Service

    Completing 40 hours of community service is a graduation requirement for LTHS. Students may begin their service hours for high school after graduating from 8th grade. All community service hours must be entered into Transeo, an online system found on our student page. Students log their service hours into Transeo, including the name & email of the person who supervised the service hours. Transeo then sends an automated email to that person asking them to verify those hours. However, Transeo will not be available to new freshmen until the new school year begins. If students complete community service over this summer, they need to get the name & email of the supervisor, and freshmen will be able to enter the information into Transeo once school starts. Students should inform the person who supervises the summer community service to expect an email once school begins. See more information on acceptable service and how to log in on our Student page.

    School Medical Forms

    Physicals for incoming 9th graders, including complete immunization records, are due by July 1st, and must be dated 8/17/20 or later. Students without current, complete physicals on file may be excluded from starting school. Dental exam forms are also due and are valid if dated 11/15/2020 to present. Forms are available on the Health Services page under Departments on the website if needed, and may be turned into the school nurse via mail, fax, email, or in person.

    School Supplies

    There are no required school supplies, other than a graphing calculator for math class. The recommended calculator is the TI-84 Plus. Students will need basic supplies such as folders/pens/pencils, etc, but may use whatever organizational supplies work best for them. Note: All PE students will have a swim unit at some time during the year, and will need a swimsuit. Boys must have swim trunks (no speedo or cut-offs); girls must have a one-piece swimsuit.

    Return to School

    Monday, August 16, 2021, will be the first day of student attendance. Be sure to check the website for the most current information regarding any safety precautions and protocols, as well as the 21-22 school calendar. All LTHS policies are posted on our website.
