Top of the 2020 Class

  • Nicolette Rojas

    "Throughout my entire life, I have been surrounded by many teachers, church members, friends, and family that have been there to guide me. Whether it was simply an assignment or something much deeper, I knew these people were only a phone call away. However, the two most important people who have been there during every high and every low are my mother, Stephanie Rojas, and my sister, Olivia Rojas. They both have instilled in me a faith in God that goes beyond my own understanding, compassion for others, and the strength to endure any hardships I may encounter. They have shown me what it means to love unconditionally, and I will forever be grateful for every sacrifice they have made for me.

     

    This fall, I will be attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with the intention of double majoring in Health Policy & Management and Sociology as an Honors student. I hope to one day travel the world, going to areas where basic human rights are not being met and creating policies and programs to make a change."

    "Hello everyone! I am honored to represent the class of 2020 as Salutatorian. First, I would like to thank my amazing family for always encouraging me to do my best. I would also like to thank my teachers and friends for always believing in me. Although graduation is not happening like we imagined, I still consider this to be a bittersweet moment that we will remember forever. I am very excited to start the next chapter in my life at NC State University in the fall. I plan on majoring in Biology with a Human Bio Intent and minor in Spanish as part of the University Scholars Program. Although we are all going our separate ways, I believe that we will all cherish the memories we have made the past four years. I wish everybody the best of luck as you all start the next chapter in your life."

     

    Sincerely,

    Megan Collins

    ************

    What? Until we can safely conduct a traditional graduation ceremony, we think it is important to recognize the accomplishments of the Class of 2020 by distributing diplomas and providing a small, intimate celebration for each of our graduates.  Graduates are encouraged to wear their cap and gown.  

    Who? Graduates and up to fifteen (15) guests.  All guests, including the graduate must arrive in no more than three (3) vehicles.

    When? Graduates will be assigned a specific date between May 29th - June 4th based on their last name.  Graduates and their guests can arrive any time between the hours of 9am-1pm or 3-7pm on their assigned day.  Specific times, organized by last name, are listed below.  

    Where?  The diploma “drive-thru” celebration will take place in the front of the school.  

    Questions? Contact the school at (919) 776-7541 

    Guidelines:

    • Each graduate is allowed to bring up to fifteen (15) guests
    • All guests, including the graduate must arrive in no more than three (3) vehicles.
    • Each graduate and their guest(s) must all arrive and depart at the same time.  
    • No large vehicles such as buses, church vans/buses, or trailers will be allowed.  Only cars, trucks, SUVs and family vans will be allowed.  No persons will be allowed to ride in the bed of a truck.  
    • All occupants must remain inside their vehicle until instructed by law enforcement to exit the vehicle for photos.  Each school will have a designated area where family and friends should stand to view the stage and/or take photos.  
    • To accommodate the entire Class of 2020, graduates and their guests will be allowed up to five (5) minutes to remain out of their vehicle to take photos in designated areas.  
    • Once graduates have received their diplomas and have taken photos, law enforcement will direct families to the exit.  
    • Any graduate with transportation concerns should contact his/her school prior to their assigned date.  
    • Per CDC recommendations, guests are encouraged to wear face coverings. 
    • Any graduate unable or uncomfortable participating should contact the school to pick up their diploma

    Details:

    All vehicles will enter the Lee County High School auditorium parking lot from the Bragg Street entrance.  Vehicles will park and wait to be directed to the proper location.  Once directed to do so, cars will exit the auditorium parking lot onto Nash Street and proceed to the main entrance of the school.  Cars will then follow the path noted and proceed to the stage area where they will be directed to stop the vehicle. 

    The student will exit the car and walk directly to the left of the stage.  His / her name will be called and the student will walk across the stage and pick up a diploma cover.  Parents may take pictures at this time while the student is on the stage.  The student will then exit the stage, walk back in front of the stage (on the pavement) towards the student services building to collect his / her diploma.  Once the student has the diploma they will walk back to and re-enter the vehicle and proceed to the parking lot exit and turn right onto Nash Street.

    GPA Calculations

    Due to school closures, the state has given students in grades 9, 10 and 11 the ability to determine whether or not their current classes are calculated in their GPA.  To provide students an opportunity to easily communicate their decision with our school, students will need to complete an online form within PowerSchool.  This form will be available May 4-10.  Students will need to use their PowerSchool login information to access the form.  This form will only account for high school courses.  College course grades are not yet finalized.  All college course grades will default to numerical grades that will be calculated in a student's GPA.  However, students can contact our college advisor once grades are released if any changes are needed.  If you have any questions, please contact your child's counselor or college advisor.  Instructions on how to access this online form are included with this post.  For more information on understanding GPA please access the following link:  Click Here

    COVID 19 Sr. Grades

     

    On Friday, March 27, the State Board of Education provided guidelines to districts for graduating seniors. The information provided is only applicable to 2020 graduating seniors.

    • School districts may not require more than the state minimum requirements (22 credits) for graduation for graduating seniors.

    • The state-mandated CPR requirement for graduation has been waived for graduating seniors.

    • The final GPA for graduating seniors will be based on the first seven semesters of courses taken.
    FALL COURSES:

    • Students will receive grades for fall courses as already stored, year-long and semester. Fall grades will count towards GPA.

    • For year-long courses, the fall term grade will be counted into the GPA.
    SPRING COURSES:

    • Students will receive a PASS or WITHDRAWAL based on their grade as of March 13.

    • If the student has a grade of 60 or higher as of March 13, the student will receive a PASS. This PASS will not be factored into the GPA.

    • If the student has an F as of March 13 in a class not required for graduation, a WITHDRAWAL will be awarded. This WITHDRAWAL will not negatively impact the GPA.

    • The same conditions listed above will apply to CCP, APEX and/or NCVPS courses. However, we encourage students to continue participating virtually, if able.

    • The same conditions listed above will apply to NAF courses, AP courses and IB courses. Students enrolled in AP courses are encouraged to take the online AP exam. More information regarding AP exams can be found at https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/coronavirus-updates

    • If the student has an F as of March 13 in a class that is required for graduation, the student shall continue to be provided remote learning opportunities for the student to improve to a passing grade. Students in traditional, seated courses taught by Lee County Schools employees should be provided an opportunity to make up missing assignments and redo assignments for full credit.

    In summary, if a graduating senior was passing a course required for graduation as of March 13, they will receive a PASS and will not be required to complete any additional work for that class for the 2019-2020 school year. Those with a grade of 59 or below in a course required for graduation as of March 13 will continue with remote learning through May 15 and will be provided opportunities to improve their grade to passing. However, we encourage all of our graduating seniors to continue to engage in virtual learning to ensure they obtain the curriculum and skills needed to continue beyond high school.

    High school counselors are in the process of contacting each senior to discuss how they should move forward. It is
    important that graduating seniors and their families understand that even when requirements for graduation have been met, you have not yet graduated. No decisions have been made regarding senior activities or graduation ceremonies. As we receive additional guidance from the state, we will provide updates.

    Go the the District Website for regular updates:

    COVID 19 Grading K-11

    On Friday, March 27, the State Board of Education provided grading options for virtual learning. At this time, we do not feel as if these guidelines are just and equitable for all students. In our attempts to be fair to all students, we will continue to provide virtual learning opportunities without recording grades. However, we are implementing the following in order to determine grades for this school year and a plan to continue the learning experience through May 15:

    • Students will receive the grade that he/she earned as of March 13 as the final grade for the 2019-2020 school year.


    • Students not passing will have an opportunity to submit missing work for assignments given through March 13 in an attempt to obtain a passing grade.

    All missing work can be submitted for full credit through April 17.


    • Students not passing will also have an opportunity to redo assignments given through March 13 for full credit, if completed by April 17. Students may not redo tests, quizzes or projects.


    • All students should continue to engage in virtual learning to ensure they obtain the curriculum and skills needed to continue in the next grade and/or course.


    • Starting Monday, April 20, teachers will begin to advance in the curriculum in an attempt to best prepare students for the next school year. No grades will be given but it is our hope that students and parents will continue in the learning process.


    • High school students enrolled in NAF courses, AP courses or IB courses will also receive final grades based on progress as of March 13. Students enrolled in AP courses are encouraged to take the online AP exam. More information regarding AP exams can be found at https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/coronavirus-updates


    • High school students enrolled in CCP, APEX, and/or NCVPS courses should continue with virtual learning and make every attempt to complete the course within the current term. Students unable to do so will receive an INC (incomplete) or a WITHDRAWAL from the course. CCP advisors and high school counselors will work with students individually to determine the best option.

    Our ultimate goal is to ensure that students are prepared to begin the 2020-2021 school year with the skills needed to succeed in the next grade and/or course. While we recognize and understand the importance of holding our students accountable, we feel that given the circumstances, that should not be done in the form of grades, to ensure that all students are given equal opportunities.

    Check the District Website for Updates:

    In collaboration with teachers throughout the district, this remote learning opportunity was developed to provide students and families access to quality learning experiences in the event of a school closure. The coursework on this site may be used to supplement assignments provided by individual teachers through various digital platforms such as Canvas, Google Classroom or a students' LCS GMail account. This does not take the place of assignments/activities provided by individual teachers for their students.

    Our hope is to provide students, parents and our community with continued learning opportunities during this time of uncertainty. We will continue to update this site throughout the school closure and we encourage you to check back regularly.
