LHMS | PLC AT WORK The Arkansas Department of Educationโ€™s Division of Elementary and Secondary Education, in partnership with Solution Tree, a national professional development provider, recently announced the fifth cohort selected for the Arkansas Professional Learning Communities at Workยฎ project. Thirteen schools and two districts from around the state were selected for the 2021-2022 school year and join 39 schools and five districts chosen over the last four years. Because of additional funding allocated by legislators, DESE was able to select additional schools and districts to participate this upcoming school year. As with the first four cohorts, each school and district in the fifth cohort will receive up to 50 days of training, coaching, and support to build and sustain a strong culture of collaboration that will enhance student learning. Those chosen completed a rigorous application and evaluation process. A panel of education professionals reviewed all applications, and DESE selected the following schools and districts to receive support from Solution Tree. Arkansas High School, Texarkana School District Booker Arts Magnet Elementary School, Little Rock School District Camden Fairview Middle School, Camden Fairview School District Glenview Elementary School, North Little Rock School District Hellstern Middle School, Springdale School District Howard Elementary School, Fort Smith School District Lake Hamilton Middle School, Lake Hamilton School District Leverett Elementary School, Fayetteville School District Magazine School District Meekins Middle School, Stuttgart School District Oaklawn STEM Magnet School, Hot Springs School District Parson Hills Elementary School, Springdale School Districtโ€จ Searcy County School District University Heights Elementary School, Nettleton School District Washington Elementary School, Little Rock School District โ€œThe PLC model has proven to be a successful best practice implemented in many schools around the state,โ€ Gov. Asa Hutchinson said. โ€œSchools that have embraced the PLC partnership, teacher coordination, and student-focused learning have seen improved learning and a culture that breeds success. I am excited that additional schools and districts now have the opportunity to learn about the benefits associated with this highly-successful program.โ€ โ€œSince the first cohort was announced four years ago, we have seen tremendous growth in teacher collaboration, school culture, and student learning,โ€ ADE Secretary Johnny Key said. โ€œThis new cohort has joined the others by making an important commitment to rebuilding internal systems, leveraging best practices, and creating a strong culture of learning. I congratulate them on their dedication to student learning and embracing the hard - but rewarding - work involved with this initiative.โ€ Recent research conducted by Education Northwest, a third-party research firm, validates the success of the Arkansas PLC program. Data show the project positively impacted student achievement in math on the ACT Aspire assessment. (Learn more at https://bit.ly/3sP2Jh4.) โ€œWe are encouraged by the accomplishments of these cohorts year after year,โ€ Solution Tree President and COO Ed Ackerman said. โ€œWe truly believe - and now research confirms - there is no better way to improve student education than with the transformative process of implementing professional learning communities. We are excited to welcome the fifth cohort to the project and look forward to working in conjunction with DESE to help Arkansas schools succeed.โ€ As with the previous four cohorts, the 2021-2022 cohort will be matched with a certified PLC at Work associate from Solution Tree and receive intensive job-embedded training, observation, and coaching. The schools and districts will create action plans that focus on increasing student achievement through aligned curriculum, formative assessments, and proven instructional strategies. During the second year, the schools and districts will deepen their understanding and focus on implementing multi-tiered systems of support, followed by strengthening their systems and sustaining the process in year three. Solution Tree recently launched a new documentary, โ€œA Child's Best Hope: The Arkansas PLC Story,โ€ that highlights the efforts of three schools throughout various stages of the implementation process. The documentary is available at https://bitly.com/3tQvJ9M. For more information about the Arkansas PLC at Work project, please visit the DESE website at https://bit.ly/2QNvSvU. #LHWolfNation

LHJH | HIGH RELIABILITY SCHOOLS โ€‹Lake Hamilton Junior High School is pleased to announce the achievement of Level 1 certification in Marzano High Reliability Schoolsโ„ข. Level 1 certification means Lake Hamilton Junior High School has created a โ€œSafe, Supportive, and Collaborative Culture,โ€ which is the foundation for every level that follows. Without such a culture, student achievement will be compromised. Day-to-day school operations are addressed and evaluated in Level 1. The high reliability school (HRS) program was created by Marzano Resources to help transform schools into organizations that take proactive steps to ensure student success. Using a research-based five-level hierarchy, along with leading and lagging indicators, educators learn to assess, monitor, and confirm the effectiveness of their schools. This framework, based on 50 years of educational research, defines five progressive levels of performance that a school must master to become an HRSโ€”where all students learn the content and skills they need for success in college, careers, and beyond. โ€œAs you move through the levels, it represents a complete transformation in how schools are run,โ€ says CEO Robert J. Marzano. Schools must collect data and validate their performance to climb each level of the hierarchy. Certification is determined by Marzano Resources analysts in cooperation with school data teams. Using the HRS framework and indicators, schools can drive sustained, positive, and significant impacts on student achievement by synthesizing multiple complex initiatives into one harmonious system. About Marzano Resources Built on the foundation of Dr. Robert J. Marzanoโ€™s 50 years of education research, Marzano Resources supports teachers and administrators through customizable on-site professional development, educator events, virtual coaching, books, videos and online courses. Our associates and authors are thought leaders in the field of education and deliver research-backed guidance for all major areas of schooling, including curriculum development, instruction, assessment, student engagement and personalized competency-based education. #LHWolfNation

SEMIFINALIST | U.S. PRESIDENTIAL SCHOLARS PROGRAM Maddie Gilleran, a senior at Lake Hamilton High School, has recently been selected as a semifinalist in the U.S. Presidential Scholars Program for 2021 in Career and Technical Education. Maddie is one of eight semifinalists in Arkansas and is among approximately 625 semifinalists nation wide who have been selected from a pool of nearly 6,500 candidates. The Commission on U.S. Presidential Scholars will soon complete its selection of the high school seniors who will be named as the 2021 U.S. Presidential Scholars. The Commission's choices will be announced in mid-May by the U.S. Secretary of Education. All semifinalists will be notified of their status. The U.S. Presidential Scholars Program was established in 1964, by executive order of the President, to recognize and honor some of our nation's most distinguished graduating high school seniors.

IN MEMORY OF LAUREN PAPA It is with great sadness that we are reporting the death of Lauren Papa, one of our 7th-grade students at Lake Hamilton Middle School. Our campus and community mourn the tragic loss and send heartfelt condolences and sympathy to the family and all that knew Lauren. Death can be difficult to understand, especially when it is sudden. There are additional counselors on campus that have been and continue to be available to meet with students to assist in coping with any feelings they may have. The District encourages parents to be sensitive to any changes in their childโ€™s behavior. Over the next few days, please encourage children to express his or her feelings and listen attentively. If parents have any concerns about their childโ€™s reaction to this loss, please contact the school.

LHHS | TECH FOR GOOD Three Lake Hamilton High School computer science students recently competed in the Girls of Promise Tech for Good competition sponsored by The Womenโ€™s Foundation of Arkansas and AT&T. Girls around the state in grades 6-12 were invited to develop an app, website, computer program, 3D printer template, or anything else โ€œtechโ€ that theyโ€™re inspired to create. Tech for Good allows girls to use their tech skills to make something that helps others! This year, Tech for Good partnered with Arkansas Hunger Relief Alliance to educate girls on hunger in our state. The technology project must either assist communities, leaders, and/or non-profits to better address issues of hunger within the state of Arkansas. The teams were tasked with learning about food security issues in our state and then develop a solution via technology. Lake Hamilton had all five state finalists that were invited to compete in the 2021 Tech for Good (two from the junior high and three from the high school). High school finalists were Colleen Miller, Abby Chuang, and Taylor Alred. The culmination of the Tech for Good competition was held April 1, 2021, where the finalists presented their technology virtually to 8th grade girls throughout the state attending the Girls of Promise Virtual Conference. After the presentations, the 8th grade girls voted for their favorite solution to hunger in our state. All finalists received a prize box with technology related items. #LHWolfNation

I know that firsthand, and I just want to share with everyone how fortunate we are that she is a part of Lake Hamilton School District. It will not be covid-19 my family remembers most this year.

VACCINE INTEREST SURVEY Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson announced Tuesday that all Arkansans age 16 and above are now eligible for the COVID-19 vaccine. The Lake Hamilton School District is looking to host a free, voluntary, on-site vaccination clinic for all parents of LHSD students and students age 16 and older. The District will use this survey (https://lhsd.info/Vaccine-Interest-Survey) to gauge how many of our parents and students (16 and older) would like to be vaccinated if an on-site option was scheduled. Please fill out the survey if you and/or your student (16 or older) would be interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine at an on-site clinic held at Lake Hamilton. Please note: Any student that is 16 or 17 years of age must have a parent/guardian present in order to receive the vaccine. Students who are 18 years or older may receive the vaccine without a parent/guardian present. This is not a registration form for the vaccine. This is an interest survey. The deadline to complete the interest survey is Monday, April 5, 2021. Depending on the response, the District will work to schedule an on-site clinic for those that are interested in the very near future. #LHWolfNation

COVID SAFETY PROTOCOLS CONTINUE Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson announced today that he has lifted the state's mask mandate. At the March school board meeting, the possibility of this happening was discussed. For many reasons, it was recommended to continue all COVID-19 safety precautions through the end of the school year. The Lake Hamilton School District Board of Education will consider an official mask policy during the April board meeting. Until that time, the Lake Hamilton School District will continue its current practice of requiring teachers, students, and visitors to wear masks in all schools and district facilities. Social distancing will also be continued. Our COVID-19 health and safety protocols, including the mask mandate, have allowed us to keep our schools open. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released updated guidance stating proper mask-wearing may now prevent individuals from being identified as close contacts in K-12 schools that have implemented a mask mandate. This means that if both individuals at school โ€“ the person diagnosed with COVID-19 and the person exposed to the positive case โ€“ have masks on and are wearing them correctly, the individual exposed does not need to quarantine. Arkansas Department of Education Secretary, Johnny Key, announced today that Arkansas schools will follow the updated guidance released by the CDC. The updated guidance will have a significant impact on reducing the number of students who must quarantine and will be a serve as an additional incentive for proper mask-wearing. With the end of the school year less than ten weeks away, the Lake Hamilton School District will continue focusing on educating our students while maintaining a safe teaching and learning environment. It is our hope that #LHWolfNation supports our safety efforts in order to finish our school year strong.

COVID-19 UPDATE Last week, Governor Hutchinson announced that all public health directives (with the exception of the mask mandate) are changing to public health guidance. While a directive is a mandate, the Governor said that guidance is a strong recommendation. Governor Hutchinson will reassess the state's progress in the COVID-19 pandemic as we approach March 31. School districts have been given the authority to continue requiring students, staff, and visitors to abide by Arkansas Department of Health guidance, which includes wearing masks and social distancing. At this time, nothing has changed for staff, students, or visitors to schools/events at Lake Hamilton. The Lake Hamilton School District believes the reason we have made over 115 days of onsite instruction is by following and adhering to Arkansas Department of Health guidelines. Even though the directives (with the exception of the mask mandate) have been changed to guidelines, the district is still required to follow the quarantine and contact tracing guidelines. All staff, students, and visitors on campus will be required to continue wearing masks and social distancing until further notice. #LHWolfNation

WORKING ON A BUDGET Lake Hamilton Middle School students in Angie Key's 7th grade business keyboarding classes have been working through an interactive website, playspent.org. On this site, students looked at various jobs and worked on a budget to ensure they could make ends meet for 30 days. Decision making skills were put to the test. Students had to make decisions about what health insurance plan to take out, housing, transportation, grocery bills, vet bills, etc. If students ran out of money, they had to start over until they could make it 30 days without a negative balance. Some students were forced to go without certain luxuries they may have in real life in order to stay in budget. #LHWolfNation

โ€‹LHHS RECEIVES START UP GRANT Lake Hamilton High School was recently awarded a $29,209.39 grant by the Arkansas Department of Education Division of Career and Technical Education for the addition of the Child Care Guidance and Management Program of Study. The grant will allow Lake Hamilton High School to offer a new program of study in the family and consumer sciences department through the human and social services program. The program will consist of three courses: family and consumer sciences, life span development, and child care guidance, management, and services. The program of study prepares students by giving them information and experiences in the occupational field of childcare guidance, management, and services. Students will complete a minimum of 40 hours of hands-on practicum in a childcare facility through the program. Other opportunities include early childhood education, foster care, family daycare, and teacher assistance. โ€œThe real-world experience will be invaluable to our students.โ€ Melody Gilleran, LHHS Family & Consumer Science Teacher Students in the program will also have an opportunity to earn industry certifications such as the Child Care Teacher Certificate, Child Care Assistant Certificate, and/or the Child Development Associate Credential. โ€œWe began discussing the need for this program last year. During the fall of 2020, we researched the job market and opportunities this might afford our students. We completed our grant application in October with the assistance of April Shepherd with Dawson Educational Cooperative. Students who take all three courses in the program will be given concentrator status on their diploma, demonstrating that they have completed the program focused on industry standards. This could be very beneficial to them when applying for post-secondary programs or careers.โ€ Melody Gilleran, LHHS Family & Consumer Science Teacher Grant applicants went through a review process using rubrics that ranked them based on funds available, labor market data, learning opportunities, certifications offered, and student interest. The grant provides funds that can be used to purchase equipment, program-specific supplies, required training, and software to support technology related to the course. Lake Hamilton High School will use the funds to purchase industry-standard equipment and to give students technical, academic, and employability skills. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the employment of childcare workers is projected to grow seven percent from 2016 to 2026. It is projected that working parents will continue to need the assistance of childcare workers. In addition, the demand for preschool and childcare facilities is projected to remain strong since childhood education is widely recognized as being very important for a childโ€™s intellectual and emotional development. โ€œAnother important part of this program is the community partnerships weโ€™ve formed. These partners will provide work-based learning opportunities, guest speakers, internships, and job shadowing opportunities for our students.โ€ Melody Gilleran, LHHS Family & Consumer Science Teacher Lake Hamilton will have three teachers who will be teaching courses in grades 9 โ€“ 12: Lisa Stanley will teach Family and Consumer Science, Melody Gilleran will teach Life Span Development and Candace Mason will teach Family and Consumer Science and Child Care Guidance, Management, and Services.

The POC phone line will be closed Wednesday - Friday, November 25 - 27, 2020. The phone line will re-open on Saturday, November 28 at 10:00 a.m. for those who have had a positive COVID-19 test or have been designated as a close contact over the break. These individuals will not be able to attend school until their isolation or quarantine period is over.

SPECIAL HIGH SCHOOL SCHEDULE WEDNESDAY On Wednesday, September 30, 10th-grade students (onsite and virtual) will take the paper/pencil Pre-ACT exam on the high school campus. The testing will take most of the morning. Due to the number of students, teachers, classrooms, and time that will be required to complete the exam, the schedule has been adjusted. 10th grade students will be on campus taking the Pre-ACT and will participate in their regular scheduled classes once testing is over. 11th and 12th grade onsite students will pivot to off campus for a student digital day. Teachers will communicate the digital day expectations, schedule, and assignments with the 11th and 12th grade students prior to Wednesday. 11th and 12th grade students who are enrolled in classes at National Park Technology Center (NPTC) should attend their normal classes at NPTC. 11th and 12th grade students who participate in classes at NPTC and ride LHSD transportation to/from NPTC will have transportation provided on their normal schedule to/from the high school. Students who choose to utilize LHSD transportation to/from NPTC will attend the NPTC classes and then remain in the Wolf Den connecting to their LHHS courses for the remainder of the day. This link (https://lhsd.info/Pre-ACT-10th-Virtual-Academy) is a letter to LH Virtual Academy 10th grade students regarding the Pre-ACT exam. #LHWolfNation

INSTRUCTIONAL OPTIONS DEADLINE The Lake Hamilton School District opened student registration for onsite and virtual instructional options on June 30, 2020. Since the virtual option was new for the 2020 school year, the deadline has been extended multiple times to accommodate Lake Hamilton School District families while figuring out what would be the best option for their child(ren) this semester. During a normal school year, students would have been able to make changes to their schedule up to 10 days after the school year has started. This year, the deadline for schedule changes was extended. That said, September 30th is the 27th day of the school year and the final day a student may switch to/from virtual/onsite instruction. No changes to the instructional options will be granted from October 1 until the end of the semester. There will be times where onsite students and/or teachers will have to quarantine or isolate themselves due to COVID-19. The school buildings will continue to accommodate those students and/or teachers by offering virtual instruction during the quarantine or isolation period. Parents may choose to have their student switch to/from onsite/virtual for the spring semester. A transfer application will be available at the end of the fall semester for parents wanting to change instructional options for the spring. #LHWolfNation

STUDENT DIGITAL DAY TOMORROW The first Student Digital Day of the 2020-21 school year is Friday, September 18. Onsite students will not attend school onsite this day. Instead, they will complete virtual assignments from home. Attendance will be counted based on the completion of assignments. Teachers will be onsite during Student Digital Days and will communicate specific participation expectations with students. Student Digital Day schedules and specific building-level information can be found here at this link: https://lhsd.info/Digital-Day-September-2020. Lake Hamilton Virtual Academy students will complete a regular virtual school day on September 18. Why are student digital days part of the school calendar this year? In the event we have to move from onsite learning to virtual learning, student digital days will serve as a training tool for students, educators, and parents. Parents and students will be able to get a glimpse of what digital delivery should look like. Another purpose of these days is continued teacher learning. Our educators will continue to learn and practice features of the Learning Management Systems (Seesaw and Canvas), as well as blended and digital management techniques. Applications are still being accepted for internet hot spots for households within the district that do not have access to the internet at home. Applications can be found at this link (http://lhsd.info/Hot-Spot-Application) and will be open as long as supplies last. #LHWolfNation

6-12TH GRADE PERSONAL DEVICE OPTION Over the past few years, student use of personal electronic devices, such as Chromebooks, in the classroom has increased. Each year, the district receives requests from students and parents on wanting to use a students' personal device instead of the school-issued Chromebook in class. In the past, it has been a district policy that only school-issued devices were allowed to connect to the school network and be used in the classroom. The Lake Hamilton School District has now set up a new network that will allow a students' personal device to connect to the network. Any student in the 6 - 12th grade that would like to use their personal laptop computer instead of a school-issued Chromebook may do so as long as they complete the following steps: 1. The student must return their school-issued Chromebook and charging cord to the school. 2. The student must bring their personal electronic device to the media center to be registered for use on the school network. 3. Once registered, the student will be provided a password for the โ€œStudent Deviceโ€ network. 4. After a student is connected to the โ€œStudent Deviceโ€ network, they should visit the school website homepage (lhwolves.net), under the โ€œParents & Studentsโ€ tab, and click on โ€œClever Loginโ€ 5. Students will enter their student (firstname.lastname@lhwolves.net) email address and password and will then have access to the school network to complete assignments throughout the day. #LHWolfNation

WHAT WENT RIGHT Sometimes, we focus too much on the negative things and fail to recognize the positives. The media and social media outlets do not help much in this regard. Bad news is typically more likely to get published, broadcast, and shared. That said, let's see how many shares we can get from this positive news post! This past Friday ended the first week of school for Lake Hamilton School District students, and things ran amazingly well given the pandemic world weโ€™re experiencing. There is no doubt that almost every student, parent, and school employee had something go wrong throughout the week. Now, what about the other side of the story? What went right?

UPDATED FACE COVERING REQUIREMENTS Based on recent recommendations from healthcare professional organizations and from the Lake Hamilton School District Ready for Learning Team, all students in grades K-12 will be required to wear a face-covering when physical distancing is not possible.ย  Administrators and teachers at the K-3 schools have agreed that this change is appropriate.ย  This strategy is being implemented to protect the health and safety of all students and staff,ย including our youngest learners.ย  Face coverings are effective in slowing transmission when combined with other measures includingย physical distancing, cleaning and disinfecting, and handwashing.ย  The Lake Hamilton School District will provide three washable cloth face coverings for each student.ย  Since this change may be significant for some families, the district isย reopening Lake Hamilton Virtual Academy (LHVA) enrollment for grades K-3 until Friday, July 31, 2020.ย  Parents who would like to enroll their K - 3 students in the LHVA should email lori.bush@lhwolves.net for the registration form.ย  Pleaseย visit the "LHSD is Here" website to view the updated FAQ documents and building-level ready for learning plans pertaining to reopening school for the 2020-21 school year at this link:ย https://lhsd.info/LHSD-is-Hereย ย  #LHWolfNation

STUDENT HEALTH STATEMENT On Tuesday evening, June 23, 2020, a parent notified one of our coaches that their child had tested positiveย for COVID-19.ย  The student-athlete had been on campus that day for a workout.ย  The district followed established procedures that included immediately contacting the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH).ย  We investigated the nature of the athletic practice and determined the number of students in close contact with the student who tested positive.ย  Close contact is defined by the ADH as within the six-foot range for at least 15 minutes.ย  Only one student met that criteria, not becauseย of the practice, but because they apparently rode to school together. The parent of the student in close contact was notified and advised to quarantine for 14 days, get tested for the virus, and stay away from campus, per ADH guidance.ย  Though the district wasย not advised to do so by ADH, out of an abundance of caution, scheduled practices for this activity only were canceled for the remainder of the week.ย  Our coaching staff followed every health precaution set in place by the ADH including screening each student upon arrival and wearing face coverings when in close contact with students and other staff.ย  Students participating in this practice maintained well over six feet of distance between them. The district regrets that one of our students is infectedย and another has been exposed.ย  We wish them well and hope to see them back in aย couple of weeks.ย  We remainย confident that we are able to continue to provide a safe environment for our students on campus for any organized purpose.ย ย  The suspension for the solely impacted team ends Friday, June 26.ย  Planned activities for all sports at all levels are set to proceed as scheduled for the week beginning Monday, June 29.ย ย
