Principal's Message

LHS families - 

Our Pioneer family is simply the BEST.  Our students have been amazing, families extra supportive, and our staff - steadfast.  As we move toward the end of the first semester, your LHS staff is doing everything it can to support our students. 

Our students continue to be our priority as we prepare them for bright futures.  Together, working with our families, we will ensure their success.  

As we approach our LHS Finals, please ensure that your student stays in good, close communication with his/her teacher, checks his/her Google Classroom, and completes any missing assignments.  Let's finish strong, Pioneers!

A resource for parents, our LHS Google Site, can help fill in the blanks.

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:
