Dear LCMS Bobcat Family and Friends:
My staff and I are counting down the days until we see you and your children. I am so excited and proud to be the principal of Louisa County Middle School! After more than 10 years in MA, it is nice to come back home to my family, friends, and you.
Recently, you received a first mailing with a welcome letter and important information. In the second mailing that will be mailed to you on Friday, August 1, you will find your child’s schedule, your child’s Standard Of Learning (SOL) report, information about the parent portal on PowerSchool, and a reminder about busing and transportation.
As always, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions, concerns, or any feedback that you would like to share.
The following are some important updates and announcements.
Welcome Letter and Opening Day Information for Students
Please see the attachments, “Welcome Letter” and “Important Information” to see what was mailed home to you.
PowerSchool Parent Portal Closed
The parent portal for PowerSchool has been closed temporarily as my assistant principals and guidance counselors are reviewing student schedules. The portal will be turned back on Tuesday, August 5 after 7:00 p.m. By then, you should have received information on your child’s schedule in the second mailing. You will also have the opportunity to see your child’s schedule on PowerSchool using the parent portal access. In case you have forgotten your username and password, that information will be mailed to you in the second mailing, which will be mailed on Friday, August 1.
