Y.E.S. COMPETITION Lake Hamilton Gifted and Talented students have been offered virtual and onsite opportunities this year. The students chose a project related to their own interests. The sixth grade group (pictured) chose to compete in the Youth Entrepreneur Showcase (Y.E.S.) project sponsored by Arkansas Capital Corporation. The Y.E.S. competition is a project where students write a business plan, create a product, and explain how to produce, sell and promote their product. This group of students chose to start a business called Split Snack. It is a plastic bag to hold more than one snack. They also researched plastic waste and how their product may help in slowing waste. Each year at the Arkansans for Gifted and Talented Education conference the winners of the competition display their products.

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

​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. “The real-world experience will be invaluable to our students.” 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. “We 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.” 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 child’s intellectual and emotional development. “Another important part of this program is the community partnerships we’ve formed. These partners will provide work-based learning opportunities, guest speakers, internships, and job shadowing opportunities for our students.” Melody Gilleran, LHHS Family & Consumer Science Teacher Lake Hamilton will have three teachers who will be teaching courses in grades 9 – 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.

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.

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 “Student Device” network. 4. After a student is connected to the “Student Device” network, they should visit the school website homepage (lhwolves.net), under the “Parents & Students” tab, and click on “Clever Login” 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 we’re experiencing.

BUS TRANSPORTATION INFORMATION All students will be expected to maintain an established transportation routine to and from school each day. Students who travel to or from school by bus will be expected to ride the same bus to and from home. In some circumstances, students may need to be transported to a different location, such as another family member's home, on an approved bus route and stop, after school dismissal. This regular routine would likely be allowed. Any changes to student school bus transportation must be approved by building administration. Students will not be allowed to travel by bus with other students for social purposes such as staying overnight or over a weekend. Face-coverings are required for all bus drivers and passengers at all times. #LHWolfNation

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.  Administrators and teachers at the K-3 schools have agreed that this change is appropriate.  This strategy is being implemented to protect the health and safety of all students and staff, including our youngest learners.  Face coverings are effective in slowing transmission when combined with other measures including physical distancing, cleaning and disinfecting, and handwashing.  The Lake Hamilton School District will provide three washable cloth face coverings for each student.  Since this change may be significant for some families, the district is reopening Lake Hamilton Virtual Academy (LHVA) enrollment for grades K-3 until Friday, July 31, 2020.  Parents who would like to enroll their K - 3 students in the LHVA should email lori.bush@lhwolves.net for the registration form.  Please 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: https://lhsd.info/LHSD-is-Here   #LHWolfNation

STUDENT HEALTH STATEMENT On Tuesday evening, June 23, 2020, a parent notified one of our coaches that their child had tested positive for COVID-19.  The student-athlete had been on campus that day for a workout.  The district followed established procedures that included immediately contacting the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH).  We investigated the nature of the athletic practice and determined the number of students in close contact with the student who tested positive.  Close contact is defined by the ADH as within the six-foot range for at least 15 minutes.  Only one student met that criteria, not because 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.  Though the district was 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.  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.  Students participating in this practice maintained well over six feet of distance between them. The district regrets that one of our students is infected and another has been exposed.  We wish them well and hope to see them back in a couple of weeks.  We remain confident that we are able to continue to provide a safe environment for our students on campus for any organized purpose.   The suspension for the solely impacted team ends Friday, June 26.  Planned activities for all sports at all levels are set to proceed as scheduled for the week beginning Monday, June 29.
