The Reflections Program is a National PTA and Georgia PTA cultural arts competition. The purpose of this program is to provide an opportunity for students to use their creative talents by expressing themselves through their own original works. Young artists can get involved through their local PTA or PTSA. A student may submit an entry in any of six arts areas. Only original works of art are accepted.

A note from our school nurse, Audrey Dinoff:
Parents and students, please remember to use the proper procedure when a student becomes ill, or needs medication at school. If a student is ill at school, he/she must obtain a pass and visit the clinic. The school nurse will assess the student and contact parents as needed. These procedures are in place for the students’ health and safety, as well as convenience for the parents. It also helps the nurse keep information and statistics about health trends in our school.
Prescription medication is not to be carried by students at any time. The only exceptions are diabetic, asthma, or emergency allergy medications, which need “Authorization to Carry” forms. If your child needs prescription medicine during the school day, a parent must bring the medicine, in the original pharmacy labeled container, to the clinic. Proper authorization forms must be completed by the parent. Parent volunteers and student aides may not accept or deliver any medication to students at school.
Over the counter medicine, that may be purchased without a prescription, may be carried by students, in the original container. This should be a small personal supply of medicine, and may not be shared with other students. Parents and students are responsible for knowing the proper dosage and use of these medicines. If the parent prefers, they may bring these medicines to the clinic, and the nurse will dispense the medicine, with the proper forms completed.
THE SCHOOL NURSE DOES NOT DISPENSE ANY MEDICATION TO A STUDENT, UNLESS THAT MEDICATION IS SUPPLIED BY THE PARENT FOR THAT INDIVIDUAL STUDENT.
If you have questions concerning your child’s medication, please contact the clinic at extension 075.
Donations are always needed and welcomed: 3 oz paper cups, ginger ale, saltine crackers, knee/elbow bandaids and tissues. Also, for many reasons students may need a change of clothes during the school day. If you have gently used basketball type shorts or sweatpants/track pants/yoga pants, please consider donating them to the Lassiter clinic.
The Lassiter PTSA is proud to announce our winners of the drawing for a LHS Sports Pass.

The LHS PTSA would like to thank Scott Kelly and the LHS Athletic Department for providing the passes to use in this drawing. We are so grateful for their support.
