Message from Tapes For Education
We are excited to inform you that we are participating in an incredible program that allows Littleton Public Schools to earn FREE school equipment. From September 1, 2017 - March 31, 2018, we will be able to turn cash register receipts from Donelans Supermarkets into valuable and important educational equipment free of charge that we otherwise would only dream of getting.
Please shop at Donelans, save your receipts dated September 1, 2017 - March 31, 2017, and send them to school with your child or drop them at the town library. Ask your neighbors, friends, and co-workers to collect tapes too!
Note: We need the whole receipt, including the itemized list of purchased items; please do not cut them. It is OK to black out the credit card authorization number.

Women in Engineering Field Trip
Please join us on a field trip to UMass Amherst for the annual Women in Engineering and Computer Science Career Day, Monday, 10/23.  We will meet professors, hear from successful women engineers, and participate in hands-on engineering and science activities. Cost is $20, which includes lunch and activities.  If you are interested, please see Ms. Sanford to register.  


Photo Re-take day is Friday, October 27th.  Students who were absent on photo day should have a photo taken on the 27th.  Re-take forms are available in the main office.  Anyone wanting to have their photo retaken should bring in their original photo package along with a re-take form on October 27th.

Clubs and activities are getting underway.  Students should listen to morning announcements or check with advisors for sign-up information.  There is a once a year activity fee of $50. per student. Students may participate in as many clubs as they wish for one $50. fee (this fee is separate from the athletic fee.)  Fees may be paid online at littletonps.org - community resources tab / online payments, or by check made out to Town of Littleton.  See the attached list of clubs that may be offered this year.


*Reminder: LHS Attendance Procedure
Please call the school attendance line if your student will be absent, tardy or dismissed.  This line is available to take messages 24 hours a day and is monitored throughout the school day.  If you prefer to send a note for dismissal your student should bring it to the office first thing in the morning.

Dismissal - Students being dismissed should report to the office to sign out before leaving the building. Dismissal information left on the attendance line or notes received in the morning will be recorded first thing in the morning so teachers will be aware of students leaving class. If your student is not aware they are being dismissed, please call the office directly or come in so we may call him/her from class.

Tardy - Students must be in their advisory classroom by 7:25 a.m.  Students arriving after that time must sign in as tardy at the office.  If you know your student will be tardy, please leave a message on the attendance line.

Absent - Please phone the attendance line by 8:00 a.m. to report your student absent or tardy.

Feel welcome to call the office if you have any questions regarding our attendance procedure.


School Council Opening
We have an opening for a parent representative who is interested in serving on the LHS School Council.  Please let us know by Friday, September 22 (via email) if you are interested.  The School Council is an advisory group that usually meets on the first Tuesday of each month starting in October.
Meetings run from 2:30-3:30 p.m.  During our meetings this year, the Council will monitor our progress with the current School Improvement Plan and make revisions/updates.  If we have more than one candidate for the parent opening on the School Council, we will hold an election and distribute ballots and directions the week of September 25.  Please feel welcome to call with any questions.

Boston National College Fair
The Boston National College Fair will be held on Sunday, September 17, 2017 from 1 - 4 p.m. at the Boston Convention and Exposition Center (BCEC).

Message from MIAA- Opioid Misuse Prevention Resources


Message from MIAA

Last fall, MIAA member schools received educational materials focused on Opioid Misuse Prevention that were developed in partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and the Massachusetts Technical Assistance Partnership for Prevention (MassTAPP). These materials were designed to support the prevention efforts of schools in providing resources and information on the dangers of opioid misuse prior to the start of each season. Please see the links below to access these resources:
To facilitate use of these materials, MassTAPP has developed a new summary document for schools entitled, “Student Athletes and Opioid Misuse: What Coaches Should Know. This new document as well as the resources listed above are available through the Massachusetts Health Promotion Clearinghouse and on Mass TAPP’s website. The information, facts and resources provided can be integrated into pre-season meetings or other events at your school and support your school’s efforts to prevent opioid misuse among students.
