Sports Practices Begin August 4

Fall Athletes: Come in to the office to drop forms off and pay the $75 activity fee before their first event. The office is open 7:45am-5pm, Monday-Thursday during the summer, but starting July 28, academic year hours of 7am-3:30pm, Monday-Friday begin.

Turn in your forms and payment to get your green slip, which players need to give their coaches on the first day of tryouts in order to participate.

If players try to just hand coaches their medical forms (which must be completed by a health professional), the coaches will send them down to wait in a long line in the office to get their pink slips and it can be really stressful for freshman trying out for a high school team for the first time.

Ladue Limitless Learning (iPad Distribution)

Ladue Schools will provide an iPad Mini for every high school student. A parent/guardian must accompany each student when they come to pick up their iPad.

Remember to bring each student’s Apple ID, forms and $40 insurance payment when you pick up your iPad. Pick up any time between 1-7pm on either Monday, August 11, or Tuesday, August 12. The make-up day is Saturday, August 16, from 9-11am.

Open House and Freshman Parent Meeting 2014

The 2014 LHWHS Open House is scheduled for Thursday, August 21 at 7pm.

PRINCIPAL'S NEWSLETTER: The purpose of Open House is for teachers to present information that will focus on learning and what students should know and be able to do as a result of attending each of their courses. Overviews of special projects, major assignments, assessment methods, grading scales, and other important aspects of each course may also be discussed. Contact information including teacher email addresses, voice mail extensions and website information will also be provided.

Please be aware that Open House is not a time to conduct individual conferences or discuss specific concerns with your student's classroom teacher. Such conversations, if necessary, should be scheduled individually with the teacher(s) in question at an alternate time. If possible, access Infinite Campus through the parent portal and print your student's schedule prior to arriving that evening. We will have schedules available in the Performing Arts Center lobby beginning at 6:30pm, but this will save you time prior to the beginning of Open House.

There will be a freshman parent meeting before Parent Open House, starting at 6pm.

2014-15 LHWHS Activity Fee


For the 2014-15 school year, the district is collecting a $75 activity fee for all high school students participating in a Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA) sport or activity. The purpose of the fee is to help offset the costs of these activities. Ladue's activities that participate in MSHSAA competitions are: all MSHSAA sports teams, speech and debate, scholar bowl, and MSHSAA sponsored instrumental & vocal events.

Students will be required to pay the fee before participating in a competition. Once the student has attended one game or activity as a participant, the fee will not be refunded if the student does not complete the season. A student is only responsible for one fee per year, regardless of how many sports or activities in which the student participates. There is a $150 cap per year for each family if there are multiple siblings participating in activities.

The fee will be waived upon request for students receiving free or reduced school meals. The fee will be collected through the High School Activities Office.
