Principal's Message

LHS families - 

Thank you, Pioneers, for a great start to the year!  Even in the midst of all of the uncertainty and unknown, I am excited to have students back in the building with us, even if by lowered numbers at a time.   I want to assure you that your administrative team and teachers have been busy planning to address every area of education - with safety and security of students, staff, and our families - at the forefront.  We have set many procedures in place, based on the guidance of the Leavenworth Health Department, our state and local Boards of Education, and state and national health professionals. 

Our priority here at LHS is our students, and doing what is right for them in preparing them for a bright future.  We ask your understanding and patience as we move through the first weeks of the school year and make necessary adjustments along the way.  We are adapting to changing guidance every day.  We do not know everything, but we will absolutely do our best to serve you and support your student.  Please communicate as you need and we will be here in partnership for a successful school year! 

One of the main channels of communication for families to stay informed about school work is our LHS Google Site.  This will serve as the "home base" and collective location for our teacher information and instructional support pieces.  Please visit it often and use the tool to guide and support your student in their academic success.  Students have Google Classrooms as a tool, and this Google Site is designed to support parents as they assist their student.  It is designed by department, then actual course, and finally, the weekly plan for each class.

Attached, please find information and updates along the way.  Please feel free to contact us at (913) 684-1550 with any questions.

News & Announcements

Pioneer Restart 


On Monday evening, the Leavenworth Board of Education met to discuss the beginning of the 2020-21 school year.  They approved a calendar recommendation to delay the original August 17 start date and begin serving students the week of August 24, for two weeks of 50% limited building attendance - with daily temperature checks and masked requirements for students/staff - on an alternating schedule of Monday/Wednesday; Tuesday/Thursday.  August 28, September 4, and September 8 will be Professional Development days for Staff (No Students).  This will allow time and space to practice building expectations specific to new protocols and processes mindful of public health guidance and recommendations.  This time will also allow staff and administration to evaluate lessons learned and best practices at the conclusion of each week. 


100% of On-Site/In-Person student learners would begin on Wednesday, September 9. The last day of the school year would be tentatively scheduled for Wednesday, May 26, 2021. 


The board also approved the presentation of learning models: 1. On-Site (In-Person), with a short-term hybrid option for when students might be unable to attend their assigned school building due to a building capacity restriction or self-quarantine/isolation conditions; 2.  Rigorous Remote Only, all student learning would take place at home with a daily activity log of 6.5 hours per day submitted to the school on a weekly basis by parents/guardians; and 3. Leavenworth Virtual School (K-8), with no changes to current program. 


Families not comfortable with sending their student to school for On-site/In-person attendance can choose between a teacher-led Rigorous Remote model, including the use of the Edgenuity Platform for Grades 9-12, or the family-led Virtual School option with curriculum powered by Calvert/Edmentum.  Each of these two options would require a semester-long commitment.


We recognize that our entire school community has questions as to how this school year will specifically proceed safely and successfully, and we promise that more planning will occur in partnership with our families and staff members in the weeks ahead.  This plan will continuously adapt and will remain in compliance with all local, county, and state requirements and restrictions.    


We will continue to provide regular updates throughout the year, including sharing of an ongoing FAQ document as families and staff submit questions to:
