Our students continue to challenge themselves, grow academically, and reflect on the competitive admission requirements that colleges expect from graduates. We know that our students are among the best in the country, and our instructional data confirms it! Please gather information during registration and set curriculum expectations for yourself that challenge you to meet your goals. We want you to be successful and set yourself apart from others after high school. We invite you to learn more in our registration letter.
As we approach the closing of the semester and begin preparation for final examinations, please allow us to provide you with information concerning our school operations at this important time of the year.
- We will give students comprehensive final assessments covering the curriculum of each course in which they are involved this semester. We will give these examinations according to the schedule on top of the second-semester exam letter. Cobb County Policy does not allow exams taken early.
- During the days of final assessments, each student should make every effort to be fully prepared. All classes will meet on Monday, May 20; however, you may opt to allow your student to leave at 11:30 a.m. by not returning the form below.
- We will dismiss students from school at 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 21 and Wednesday, May 22. Buses will run that day at 11:35 a.m. The buses will not run at 3:30 p.m. on the last two days.
- We expect students to return designated textbooks by the end of the semester or make payment for lost or damaged books. Students who owe for textbooks or any other debts (uniforms, media center fines, etc.) should make arrangements to make payment before the end of the day on Thursday, May 16. We will place students who owe fines or other debts on the hold list and they will not be eligible to purchase a parking permit or receive additional textbooks for the fall semester. Please pay textbook fines in the textbook room or in room 1105. Please pay media center fines in the media center. Make checks payable to Lassiter High School. We would like to thank you for your support. We enjoy working with you, your students, and our community.
