Welcome LFPA Families,

We are all looking  forward to the beginning of another incredible year at LFPA.  We have added several new classes this year including American Sign Language, Forensic Science, Improvisational Acting and a new Honors English class for high school students.  We have added a few outstanding new teachers to make up a phenomenal staff this year. We also hired a new facilities manager and a varsity basketball coach who recently coached two championship teams at a neighboring school. We are very excited to add these great new classes and team members as LFPA continues to grow.

We are still offering a $200 referral incentive to any of our families who refer a new student between now and August 15th. (The new student must remain enrolled for the entire Fall semester.)

Please review our dress code sheet as we have subtle differences for the district dress code, such as allowing various hair color. You will notice that classes are a little longer this year. The plan is to slowly transition to utilizing the homeroom schedule more frequently as the year progresses. The homeroom period will be utilized for students to work on homework, academic enrichment, student organizations such as NHS and StuGo, student mentoring, and any other meaningful purpose. I will communicate any transitions throughout the school year.

Student schedules are distributed after Arts and Activities are paid or a Fees Assistance form has been submitted. We have several options to help families with these fees such as deferred payments, payment plans, etc. Uniform shirts may be purchased in the school office.

I am excited to meet our students and families as we begin another great year.

Best Regards,

Robert Villa
