Bullying and Hazing

 
Bullying is any act that recklessly or intentionally endangers the mental health, physical health or safety of a student or that substantially interferes with a student’s educational benefits, and that takes place on or immediately adjacent to district grounds, at any district-sponsored activity, on district-provided transportation or at any district bus stop.

Cyberbullying means threats or harassment over Internet through web pages, email, instant messaging, text messaging, or by other electronic means.

Hazing is any act that recklessly or intentionally endangers the mental health, physical health or safety of a student for the propose of initiation or as a condition or precondition of attaining membership in, or affiliation with, any district-sponsored activity or grade level attainment.

LHS says NO to Bullying and Hazing!

Discrimination and Harassment

 
In accordance with Board of Education Policy JGEC, the Lawrence Public School district is committed to providing a positive and productive learning and working environment, free from discrimination and harassment.  
 
Discrimination is conduct which affords a student different treatment, solely on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation or gender identity in a manner which interferes with or limits the ability of the student to participate in or benefit from the services, activities or programs of the school. 
 Harassment is conduct which solely on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation or gender identity:
  • affords a student different treatment in a manner which interferes with or limits the ability of the student to participate in or benefit from the services, activities or programs of the school; or
  • subjects a student to treatment which is sufficiently severe, pervasive or persistent so as to have the purpose or effect of creating a hostile environment or of interfering with a student's performance or ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities or programs of the school.

LPS Equity Goals

TEAM LPS Equity Goals

Welcome to Lawrence High School

 Home of the Chesty Lions
 
Lawrence High School has a rich and proud heritage of excellence in academics and extracurricular activities.
 
In 1857 public donations built the first "Lawrence High School", the Quincy School
and on March 26, 1954 Lawrence High opened at it's present location.
 
OUR MISSION: The Lawrence High School Community will educate all students and empower them to be responsible citizens and life-long learners in a changing world
 
RED & BLACK: As far as can be ascertained, our school colors date back to 1907 when our football teams wore red and black long socks
 
WE ARE THE LIONS: The Lion was first used as a school symbol in 1930
 
CHESTY THE LION: The Chesty Lion symbol was first drawn by Paul Coker, a Lawrence Memorial High School graduate, in 1946. He went on to become a well-know cartoonist and is the creator of the beloved "Frosty the Snowman". Chesty the Lion is named "Chesty" because he is PROUD of LHS and the ideals for which it stands
 
At LHS we R.O.A.R. with Pride! 
Respect, Our Best Effort, Academic Achievement, Responsibility
