Principal's Message 

Dear Viking Families,

I hope this message finds you all healthy and well.  It is an honor to be the new principal of Lansdowne High School and I am excited for what this new school year will bring!  After a year and a half of new experiences that have changed our thoughts about traditional schooling, the staff and administration here at LHS are ready to return and be with our students.  We look forward to welcoming our students, focusing on developing authentic relationships and incorporating the new skills we have learned into our instructional programming. 

It is hard to believe that the start of school is right around the corner.  All students will begin school on Monday, August 30th.  Doors will open at 7:15 AM, school starts at 7:30 AM and students will be dismissed from school at 2:15 PM.  Please take note of the following items as you prepare for the start of school:

  • Parent Input is needed as we develop our vision and mission for LHS. Please click here to complete a Parent Survey or return the blue "LHS Family Educational Beliefs and Values Survey" that was included in the Welcome Back mailing.
  • Back to School Night will be Thursday, August 26th from 5:30 – 7 :30 PM (rain date Thursday, September 2nd, 5:30 – 7:30 PM).This will take place on the gym parking lot. Students will have the opportunity to take small group tours of the building.
  • Meals (breakfast and lunch) will continue to be free for all students.
  • Transportation routes will be posted to our school website by Monday, August 23rd.
  • NEW bell schedule was included in the Welcome Back mailing and will be posted to the website. All school days have been extended by 15 minutes which means our school day is from 7:30 AM – 2:15 PM for students.
  • As of July 29th, BCPS, in consultation with the Baltimore County Health Department, has decided to require masks for all staff, students and visitors while on BCPS property.
  • Updated contact information needed! We are still in the process of reviewing and updating our student contact information. Included in the Welcome Back mailing is a very important student contact sheet that we would appreciate you reviewing, updating and returning to school on the first day of school. I cannot stress how important it is that we have the most current and accurate contact information for our families.
  • Student Devices: All students should bring their devices and chargers with them every day, especially the first two weeks of school. Incoming 9th graders will swap Chromebooks for HP devices. If you have lost the charger, the replacement fee is $40 (payable in cash, money order, payment plan).Please do not purchase a replacement without first checking with our tech team to ensure you are getting the correct one. Incorrect chargers will damage the device.

On behalf of the administration and staff here at Lansdowne, we look forward to the return of our students. I personally look forward to meeting you at our Back to School event and throughout the year.  Please do not hesitate reach out if you have any questions, concerns or comments. 

 

With gratitude, 


Allison Seymour
