    • Pens, pencils, and highlighters

  • Construction and Traffic Pattern Change: Important!  

    Due to the upcoming construction projects commencing at CCCC, LEC is announcing the following parking and traffic changes.  The major change is the road  alongside Joyner Hall will be blocked off due to construction.  For this reason, we are making the following adjustments in our traffic pattern.

    1. The parking lot by Cobra Hall will be for staff parking only.  Student parking will be anywhere on campus where students are allowed to park.
    2. Between the hours of 7:15-8:15 and 2:15-3:15 the Cobra Hall parking lot and entry road will be limited to school buses only.
    3. Parent drop off will continue to be in the front of campus between the Cosmetology Building and the Bell Bldg.  
    4. Between the hours of 8:15 and 2:15, as well as after 3:15,  parents are welcome to enter the parking lot to sign out their child.

    The construction is tentatively scheduled to last one year.  If further changes are needed we will keep you informed.
