Tawanna C. Thornton. Ed.S.
Message from the Principal:
We begin the 2022 - 2023 school year with much anticipation.  A lot has been learned (by staff and students) over the past two and a half years.  Many changes have come about as a result of our ever-changing world.  We know changes are stil on the horizon, so we seek to continually adapt to provide the very best for our students. 
Our goal at LCHS is for every student we serve to graduate.  We seek to provide every student what he/she needs to successfully complete high school and gradute with a diplomia.  When our students succeed, we succeed. 
Parents, Thank you for allowing us to serve you and your children.  It is an honor for our faculty and staff to serve the youth and thus the community of Lawrence County.
