Welcome to our NEW website!

  • Susan Glover


    Yay! We’ve got a new website that not only looks good but is also loaded with pictures and information about our school and about LCPS. Information that you once had to go to the district website to find is now right here, within easy reach of our parents, students and friends in the community.

    Our new-look website also has a new internet address:

    The site features a responsive design that looks good and works well whether viewed on a desktop, a laptop, a tablet or a phone. Content is automatically scaled and stacked based on screen resolution, enabling as good a user experience on a phone as on a desktop monitor.

    Take a few minutes, drive around the site and let us know what you think. Questions and comments can be sent to me at
