Principal's Message 
Happy New Year, Viking Families.  We are excited to return to a new school year filled with new partnerships and new initiatives to better support our students.  When we open the doors on Monday, all of our students will have a LHS teacher in their classroom.  We welcome 17 new teachers, and 6 new members of our student support teams to our community.  If you know of anyone, even if they would like to start as a long-term substitute, interested in teaching Math, Special Education, ESOL or Spanish, please share our contact information with them as we are continuing to seek qualified candidates to teach our students. 

Our continued areas of growth are focused on attendance, academic achievement and suspension rates.   Members of our school staff have spent much time this summer working on developing targeted programs to support students and families.  Information about these areas of focus will be shared at our first Parent Meeting on Wednesday, September 14th at 6:30 PM in the library.  During this meeting, representatives from Baltimore County PTA will be there to talk with parents about reforming our PTSA.

We continue to welcome partnerships with CCBC’s Upward Bound Program, UMBC’s TRIO Talent Search Program, Villa Maria, The Hippodrome Foundation, First Financial Credit Union of MD, ClancyWorks, Maryland Food Bank, Chick-Fil-A at Lansdowne Station, the Sheffield Institute and City of Refuge.  They provide support to our students, our teachers, and our families in a variety of ways and we look forward to sharing more about their support in the near future.

Finally, we continue to work with the offices of BCPS to move forward with the construction of the NEW Lansdowne High School.   Watch our Facebook and Twitter pages for updates.   This will be the last season our fall athletic teams will have access to our fields, and we are planning special alumni and community events throughout the fall season. 

It continues to be an honor to be the principal of Lansdowne High School and getting to know our families and the community. I look forward to the continued opportunities for us to work together in supporting our students.  Here’s to a wonderful year.


With gratitude, 

Allison Seymour
