Fresh Fruit Fridays are back! This spring we’re shooting for a F3 once a month. Then next year, we’re hoping for fruit for the LHHS students every week. Thanks for Jennifer Wilcox - State Farm for sponsoring the first one of 2023…the kids loved it and it was a healthy way to start the day! Stay tuned for info on how you can support this awesome PTA organized event.
Our annual Valentine's Day cake day is almost here! If you want to order a sweet treat for a student, a teacher, a friend, or yourself click the link below. Two new flavors were added for a total of 8 flavors to choose from.

See Something, Say Something
RISD High School Students and Parents,
This message is a reminder that the safety of our school, classmates, and employees is a responsibility shared by everyone. If you see or hear something that potentially threatens the safety of anyone at school or about a classmate who may be in crisis, please say something to teacher, administrator, parent, or trusted adult.
Sometimes a person would prefer to report something anonymously, and for those situations, our school provides a system called Anonymous Alerts. Readily available through the high school homepage, RISD’s Safety & Security website, and bookmarked on every student Chromebook, Anonymous Alerts allows a person to make an anonymous online report about any situation that potentially impacts the safety or well-being of our school, any student, or any employee. All Anonymous Alerts reports are investigated by RISD, and if necessary, by police.
Please remember, situations that are true emergencies should be reported to 911, or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.
Thank you for taking a moment to think about the safety of our school and to be prepared to say something if you see something.

This is not coming from Lake Highlands High School PTA, it is a scam.
