     Lamar High School is an International Baccalaureate school whose goal is to provide the best opportunity for a diverse group of students to receive a rigorous, internationally accredited education, with a broad range of extracurricular activities, in a safe and nurturing environment. The goal of the IB is for students to be challenged academically, while also finding creative and physical fitness outlets, getting involved in the community around them, and developing a global view that takes the student beyond their immediate environment.


    Final Exams
    As a reminder, students may take their final exams in-person or remotely from home.  The exams are synchronous, so pay attention to the schedule below for start and end times on the exams.  Students will be asked to turn on their camera if they are testing from home, but are allowed to turn off the microphone and may use a Teams background to ensure privacy.  Students may only use one device during testing, the HISD provided laptop.  If your student is having trouble with the laptop, this is the time to contact our Tech Support for assistance.  Students should turn off their phone for the testing period and place it in another room.
    Spring Semester
    The Spring Semester begins on Monday, February 1, 2021 with a Blue A-Day.  Students will be able to access a copy of their schedule through HISD Connect Student Portal.  There are a few changes for the spring semester so please take time to check your schedule.
    Spring Semester Final Exam Exemptions
    Join me to learn more about your opportunity to be exempt from your Spring Final Exams, on Tuesday, January 26 at 1:00 p.m.  The link for this meeting will be on our website at @viewfromthelhsbalcony on Instagram.  All students will have the opportunity to be exempt.  Do the work along the way and don’t endure the stress of final exams for every class.
    Principal’s Cabinet
    I have asked all sponsors for clubs, teams and organizations on campus to identify two students to serve as representatives on the Principal’s Cabinet.  I will use this group to serve as an advisory board as we begin to make plans for next school year, and will also ask them to help us establish guidelines for our Hall of Honor.  I would like an area of the school designated to alumni who have been groundbreaking in their fields and would serve as models of excellence for our students.  We will begin this work in the coming weeks.  If you were selected as a representative for the Principal’s Cabinet, watch for an email from me with information on our first meeting.  If your club, team or organization has not selected representation yet, please remind your sponsor to submit the name(s) of representatives.
