Throughout the years of LHHS, many aspects have come and gone. While some left to the disappointment of teachers and students, others went with an air of good riddance.

Seven a.m. classes and windbreaker jackets are just two that stand out. While the term 7 a.m. class might strike fear into the hearts of people who hate early mornings, they were actually meant to help rather than to harm. Admin had to remove the classes due to students not having access to their teachers for extra help or tutoring. The classes were implemented because the school had over 2,000 students. Instead of building extra classrooms, admin decided to allow teachers to teach one extra class.

Additionally, chilly season is here with its cold mornings and warm afternoons. In order to stay warm throughout the school day, students have to wear a standardized club sweatshirt or school jacket. Recently though, the school’s bookstore has stopped selling windbreakers, a much heavier version of the standardized zip up.

Although they are still selling the regular school jackets all year round, the waterproof jackets are no longer for sale due to students sneaking in items they are not supposed to have at school. Bookstore manager Carol Newton said that the school is looking for another option to replace the windbreaker, but it is still awaiting approval from the school board.

Although the choices to remove and replace elements of the school may seem hasty, Principal Scott Becker said, “When big decisions happen in our school setting, we form a committee to address the pros and cons to any decision.”

So even though students may not know the reasons behind the decision right away, getting involved in school and going to school board meetings can help one stay up to date on upcoming changes.
