Shadowing Tips:

  • Students should complete an application at least a week prior to requested date.

  • Students arrive at LRCHS at 8:30 a.m. and should report to the auditorium, which is directly across from the main office.

  • Students should pack a snack or lunch, or bring money to purchase food as both lunches take place before noon.

  • LRCHS students are allowed to carry cell phones but electronic devices should be turned off and cannot be used in class without permission. Shadowing students may contact parents after they return to the assistant principal’s office on the second floor.

  • All public school students must return to their home campus in the afternoon. Shadowing ends at 12:30 p.m.

  • Private school students may remain on campus until 3:30 p.m. School ends at 3:50 p.m. so parking may become an issue after 3:30 p.m.
