We are writing to you following the last Loft school delivery which took place yesterday. A date for the implementation of the uniform was decided by the Governing Board last night, which has been set to Monday, December 3, 2018.
On December 3, all students are expected to be in FULL uniform. We understand that some orders were not fulfilled in their entirety, or exchanges are still pending, but we have been making a list of students in these cases. In cases where items are missing from the order, students are expected to be in partial uniform, meaning if they have the pants, they should be wearing the pants, and if they have the polo they should be in a polo.
As mentioned in our last communication regarding the uniforms last week, please advise the level VPs of any cases where uniforms have not been delivered in full, so we can compare lists and make sure students are not penalized for delivery delays. If you have already communicated, there is no need to communicate again. In an attempt to limit and manage the number of emails received, we would also ask that you only email regarding the missing uniform items.
Thank you for your cooperation on this matter,
Mr. Vitantonio- Principal
Ms. Triestino - Vice Principal (L1/2) firstname.lastname@example.org
Ms. A. Antonacci - Acting Vice Principal (L3/4) (temporarily replacing Ms. Tummillo) - email@example.com
Ms. Tummillo (L3/4) - Ms. Caruso (L5) - firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that all report cards have been distributed to students this morning during period 1. We would encourage you to ask your child for the copy of the report card upon their return from school.

The OPUS Tour will be stopping by LBPHS on Wednesday, September 12th.
Each year, you must renew your photo OPUS card to pay the reduced fare for students when riding the bus and métro. LBP will be visited by the Opus photographers on September 12th, 2018.
Please visit the link below for a list of documents you must bring with you to the photo session and to download the application form.
Attached below, you will find your child’s 2018 Summer Reading List.
Your child must read at least one of the two novels from the list and make notes of any significant plot points, symbols, themes and ideas as they read. We have included a short synopsis of each book to help with your selection. We have also included a guideline to direct your child and help them take appropriate notes while reading.
Local book stores have the novels in stock, however, please procure books at the beginning of summer because it takes 2 to 3 weeks to receive books if they run out of stock. If ordering online please anticipate 2 to 3 weeks for novels to arrive, therefore do not wait until the end of summer to order. Public libraries are also a good option to find the novels.
We are excited to announce that our Student Council has designed the class of 2019 Grad Hoodies and we will be collecting orders on December 3rd & 4th at lunch. The black t-shirt and hoodie combo will be sold for $45 and you will also be able to add on a long-sleeved t-shirt if you would like.
The Grad Hoodie Committee members will be there to receive orders and for sizing.
The Grad hoodies are not part of the school uniform, they are being sold as souvenirs and they may or may not be allowed to be worn during the school day.
