Morning Help Sessions

Morning help sessions have begun! Math labs are provided for all three grade levels on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Reading and writing labs are offered on Wednesdays. The sessions begin at 8:15. Students should enter the theater doors in the morning, report to the theater to receive a pass, then travel to their designated room. The attachment provides a list of rooms that each grade level/subject should report to. When students report to their rooms, they should give the pass to the help session teacher and sign in.

Scoliosis screening will be conducted on October 7th for 6th and 8th grade students. Please read the following letter and return if you do not want your child screened. Students can turn in the letter to their homeroom teacher or Mrs. Felix and Coach Ravenscraft.

Attendance, Tardies, Arrival and Dismissal!

Did you know that research shows there is a direct correlation between school attendance and academic performance? Absence from school is often the greatest single cause of poor performance. Attendance is one indicator for the state scoring model for all schools called the CCRPI (College and Career Readiness Performance Index). For every student who has six (6) or more absences, our score decreases. This includes students who are absent more than ½ a school day. Now, what can you do? Of course, we want your sick child to stay at home in order to get better, but when possible, please try to make appointments to where your child is at school at least ½ of the school day. Let’s work as a team to make LMMS stay #1 in the district.

Please read the attached student policies!

All A’s Principal's Honor Roll - A in every class (including Connections)- S in Conduct in every class.

Electronic Devices

All personal electronic devices (cell phones, tablets, iPod’s, PSP’s, etc) must be turned off upon arrival at school and remain off until the school day ends. Students may not display or use any electronic device during the school day unless designated for a learning task by a teacher in their class on a specific day. Any device seen or heard during the school day will be confiscated and turned in to the main office. Repeated violations constitute insubordination resulting in progressive disciplinary consequences. The confiscated item will only be released to the parent or guardian. Parents may pick up electronic devices after 4:15 p.m. on the day the item is collected and any day thereafter during regular office hours (8:15 – 4:45).



Lost Mountain has partnered with the Daily Grind to introduce a fantastic new way to show teachers how much we appreciate them. Please encourage a teacher today. Buy them a lunch credit and they will know how much you really appreciate them. They will get a tasty lunch delivered to their school and the program will add $1 to a gift card of their choice. Very Important: Leave a note on their board and make their day (they will get this note emailed to them)!

Visit Teacher's Lunch Box to treat a teacher and learn more about this exciting new community partnership.


School hours 9:10-4:15
Study Hall starts @ 8:15
The Front doors are not unlocked until 8:15 each morning and will be locked at 4:45.
