• Fresh Start Frequently Asked Questions

    Please see below the commonly asked questions about Fresh Start.  If you have any other questions, please feel free to call (815) 588-8203.  We look forward to seeing you soon!


If you have not done so already, please provide payment for the program. If you think you are eligible for a fee waiver, please see below. In addition, you will need to complete the self-certification form. This will help to make sure all students stay as safe as possible while attending Fresh Start.

If your student had a fee waiver for their 8th grade year in junior high, they might qualify to attend Fresh Start at no cost. Some junior highs will provide a list of these students to LTHS. Please contact the Central Campus Principal’s Office, if you think that your student is eligible at 815-588-8203.

LTHS is committed to providing a safe environment for all students. We will be requiring masks and observe physical distancing as much as possible. In addition, we are planning on doing much of our activities outside (weather permitting).

Keep your student home and call 815-588-8220, leave a message and a health associate will get back to you.

Please call 815-588-8220 to report an absence. More than likely, you will need to leave a message. You will not receive a call back from the message unless there are questions about symptoms at which point a health associate will call you.

Not a problem! Directly after Fresh Start ends, there will be a shuttle to East for all campers as needed. This will be very similar to how it will work in the school year and will be good practice for them.

Bus information with stops will be emailed to the email address on file by May 26th. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the transportation department at 815-588-8900.

Comfortable clothes and gym shoes would be highly recommended. Masks are required. Please note that the dress attire is something we would like to model in accordance with our dress code. Campers may bring a water bottle, but no open container or outside beverages please.

Please use door 1 at Central for drop off and pick up.
