Principal's Message

LCHS Community,

It is with immense pride that I welcome you to the 2020-2021 School Year. I am excited to start my first year as a Cardinal and look forward to continuing to make great things possible for our students and community. I am excited to continue to work with you as your partner in education to ensure your child’s success. Along with staff, I will work hard to keep the legacy of success established at Laguna Creek High School by building strong relationships with parents, students, faculty, and community partners.

Distance Learning Schedule: August 13 is the first day of instruction.

Enclosed, you will find the Distance Learning 4x4 class schedule. Due to Distance Learning, LCHS is temporarily changing our school schedule to a 4x4. On this schedule, students take four classes every nine weeks. The change to this schedule provides access to the same number of courses but considers the differences in the learning environment. LCHS is committed to providing a diverse and enriching learning experience while supporting our students’ mental wellness. 

The schedule outlines the times and length of each class. Students are taking odd periods (1,3,5, & 7) during terms 1 and 3.  Even periods (2,4,6, & 8) during terms 2 and 4.  We recognize that our students learn best, working directly with our teachers. Our students will participate in teacher-led synchronous learning each day and have additional asynchronous teacher support in the afternoon. The structure of the school day provides consistency and routines that are important for student learning and wellness.

Student Schedules, Learning Resources, and Nutrition

More information regarding student schedules, Food and Nutrition Services, Chromebooks, and textbook distribution will be forthcoming. 

Your Cardinal staff are working on a plan to support student acquisition of learning materials.  

Breakfast with Benson

To help facilitate community dialogue, I would like to invite you to “Breakfast with Benson” on the first Thursday of each month between 800-900am. During these meetings, I present information on important educational topics and provide time for parent feedback and conversation.  

School Activities - Keep Informed

All of our major school events are posted regularly on our school’s website, http://lchs.egusd.net/. Reading the monthly newsletters sent via email, school website, Facebook, and Synergy emails are the best way to stay up-to-date on all that is happening at Laguna Creek High School. I will send monthly newsletters via email to inform you about events and the great things Laguna Creek students are accomplishing and provide school updates. It is essential for you to provide us with a working email so that we can keep you informed. You can do that by logging into your Synergy ParentVUE portal and updating your information.

Thank you for the privilege of partnering with you in educating our children. I am looking forward to working with you this school year. 

In Partnership, 
Mark Benson
Principal LCHS
