Hello Royal Students and Families!


Welcome to November! It is hard to believe but we are already through the first quarter of the school year. I know it has not always been easy so give yourself a big pat on the back for your perseverance!


I wanted to use this message as an opportunity to talk about grades and credits towards graduation. I know last Spring was a difficult semester for our students as we navigated school remotely over zoom. Now that we are back in person, I know many are using this time to recover and get back on track for graduation and our college and/or career goals that classes here at LHS are preparing us for.


Great news! The Edmonds School District has extended the backfill policy into this semester. This means that if there was a class you failed or want to improve a grade in, passing or improving the grade in a course next in sequence will allow you to backfill the previous grade. Example: If you failed English 10 Spring semester but pass English 11 Fall semester, your grade in Fall semester will also be applied to the English course you failed in the spring.


Here is a document that details what courses can be backfilled - click here


Students - With this news I hope that we all get motivated to work as hard as we can this semester knowing what it can do for our credits and GPAs. If there is a class we are behind in or want to improve our grade, now is the time to focus and have a plan for reaching your goal(s). Please don’t pass up this opportunity and make sure to reach out if you need support! Your teachers, counselor, and support staff are all here to help. Usually the best first step is to talk with your teacher if it is a specific class you are wanting help in. If you are not sure who to ask or where to start, feel free to reach out to me directly and I will help get us pointed in the right direction.


You got this!
