During a traditional school year, PTSA normally sponsors programs and events such as Red-E Week, Black History Month, teacher mini-grants, senior scholarships, and many more. In addition to our commitment to provide these programs and advocacy, one of our top priorities this year will be focusing on the emotional and physical health of our students and staff by providing outreach and supplementing funds to cover the cost of PPE and other health and safety needs in the school.
In order for PTSA to continue with our mission, we need your help! You can do this by simply joining the PTSA and/or making a donation. As a 501(c)(3) all donations to Lassiter PTSA are tax-deductible!
We have simplified our membership options to reflect the current school year as well as making membership 100% online. Please visit the Lassiter PTSA website to purchase your memberships, make a donation, sponsor a teacher, and buy some Lassiter High School swag.
Now, more than ever, it is important that we are staying connected. While creating your membership, make sure you sign up for the Trumpet Blast to receive email communications from the PTSA. Also, like us on a Facebook and Instagram @lassiter_ptsa to see frequent updates and announcements.
Due to the spread of COVID-19, the 2020–2021 school year will be like no other. We greatly appreciate your support as we work together to support our school during this unprecedented time.

Schedule Change Request Form - Fall 2020 (must submit by Friday, August 7, 4:00 p.m.)
The Master Schedule is created and developed from the student course registrations submitted in early spring. The Master Schedule was finalized in late spring in order to set student and teacher schedules. To create the optimum class size for learning, the Master Schedule is reviewed and balanced throughout summer months. It is in the student's best interest to have the appropriate schedule in place at the time school begins. Every effort is made to provide students with a schedule aligned with Lassiter's educational goals and the student’s post-graduation plans.
*For this reason, changes to a student’s schedule will not be granted, unless the reason for change is listed below.
- I already have credit for the course
- I do not have the pre-requisite (all course descriptions are located on the Course Selection page.
- I am missing an academic core class
- I am academically misplaced - student placed in wrong level
- I do not have a lunch period
- I did not register for this course (we will verify your registration and spring schedule review before any changes will be made)
- I have an IEP/504 Case Manager approved change
- I am missing a course for graduation and am a senior
- I need a different period because of my Dual Enrollment Schedule
Your schedule will be available to view in ParentVue and StudentVue from July 31 - August 7. During this time, you will be able to see classes and periods. You will not be able to see teachers until the weekend before school starts. We will not be able to accommodate teacher change requests. Teachers have maximum student loads based on curriculum and instruction.
Please review your schedule and make sure that you are in the proper course. Again, the master schedule and courses were assigned based on your registration. Electives may not be changed at this time. We offered a schedule review opportunity through Survey Monkey for you last spring. If we were able to make the change, we made it then, if not, we placed you in your Alternate Choice. Classes are full. We have added you to a waitlist and will contact you if a spot becomes available.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we prepare for school opening on August 17. If you submit a request at the link below and it is denied, we will send you an automated denial email within 72 hours of your request. If your request is approved, it will be corrected on your schedule and available for view in ParentVue and StudentVue a few days before school starts.
All requests must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. on Friday, August 7, 2020.
Note - As we balance class size and enroll new students, there is a possibility that your schedule will change.
Administrators and Counselors
Are you curious about our virtual learning plan for the upcoming school year? Please visit our Cobb County School District Virtual Learning page.
This communication is to inform you of a process change to request a device for your student. Parents were able to request a device for their student through Parentvue between the dates of July 2, 2020, through July 23, 2020. If you requested a device during this time period, then your request is being processed and we require no further action. If you did not request a device during this period and your student does not have access to a device, as of July 23, 2020, the district closed parents’ ability to request through Parentvue and the request must go directly through your student’s school. As a result, please use the link below and complete the form to request a device for your student.
We will provide information regarding laptop distribution to all parents who requested a device soon!
Please contact Julie Huffman, assistant principal by email if you have further questions.

In place of the certificate of enrollment, DDS will accept a copy of a student’s unofficial transcripts or report cards reflecting the student’s name and Lassiter High School as their attending school.
