Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year!

It has been a busy summer here on campus as we are preparing for an exciting school year. Our staff is excited to work with you to ensure your child has a successful experience at LFPA. I know this has been a challenging year for everyone and we are looking forward to bringing back some “normalcy” while still upholding our high safety standards.

Communication is critical to collaboration between home and school. I will be providing weekly e-mails and announcements to help ensure we are in constant communication and you can stay up to date with things going on around campus. If you have not yet signed up for the REMIND app, please do so by clicking the following link:  https://www.remind.com/join/lfpap 

 Just a reminder that our Back to School Night is Tuesday, August 3rd from 4-6pm. This is an open night to pick up and walk your student’s schedule, meet our teachers, purchase shirts, sign up for our nutrition program, order meals, and ensure your student is prepared for a great first day! You are also welcome to stop by our office to purchase shirts ahead of time to avoid the long lines. Please note- no schedule changes will be made prior to the first day of school. If your student has scheduling concerns or would like to request a schedule change, they MUST still follow their original schedule until requests can be submitted.

Students will NOT be required to wear uniforms the first day of school. We are celebrating this exciting first day of a “normal” year with a HollyWOLVES Red Carpet Return. Students are encouraged to dress their Hollywood best. Bring out the sparkles, big sunglasses, fancy attire and come dressed divine. All attire must be school appropriate and still follow standard dress down policies. Students will also still be able to dress down on Friday’s for $1.00. Remember, students may now wear blue jeans and denim in the proper colors as long as there are no rips or holes in them.

We are looking forward to a year filled with sports, activities, and clubs. A list of activities with time frames will be posted the second full week of school and all extra-curricular clubs and activities will begin the week of August 23rd. This will allow our staff time to properly plan. We encourage your student to reach out to club / sports advisors and find an extracurricular activity to enrich their school experience.

This year we are also enhancing the positive supports we have in place for students. All students will receive a Wolves HOWL card at the start of the year. Students will have many opportunities to earn positive incentives through hole punches on their card by exhibiting leadership within our school. We encourage you to ask your student regularly how he / she is doing on their card.

We are pleased to announce our new leadership team for this school year. We would like to welcome Coach Jay and Coach Freeman as our athletic directors, Chelsea Triggs as our Student Services Director, Rachel Siegler as our performing Arts Director, Adrianna Rutledge as our school site director, and myself as our district administrator. If at any time you need assistance, please don’t hesitate to reach out to one of the amazing leaders on our campus. Thank you for choosing LFPA. We are here to serve you! 

Educationally,

Nikki Valle

District Administrator
