During the first two periods of the school day on Oct. 16, LC will be giving the Preliminary SAT (PSAT). The schedule for the day will have a few changes. Students, take note of the changes for your respective grade level.

Seniors and Non-Testing Juniors:

  • Seniors do not need to report to school until 10:26 a.m. for the beginning of seventh period.
  • The school encourages, but is not mandating, that this time be used for job shadowing, college visits, or community service.
  • If transportation is an issue and seniors need to arrive at school by the bus at 7:15, they will be assigned to a study hall for fifth and sixth periods. The school will not provide transportation for students arriving at 10:26 or for students job shadowing, visiting college, or doing community service.

Testing Juniors and Sophomores:

  • Testing students should arrive to their assigned testing room no later than 7:05 a.m.
  • Students should have received an email on their accounts with their testing room assignments. Students, read this email in its entirety. If you did not receive the email, report to the main office or guidance office to find out your testing room.
  • The day of testing, make sure to bring: two No. 2 pencils, your LCHS Student ID and an approved calculator.


  • The freshmen school day will continue as normal.
  • Freshmen should report to their White Day classes as normal. However, if their class is mostly upperclassmen, their teacher will be proctoring while the freshmen are sent to a study hall. Teachers should let their freshmen know this week if they will be affected.
