Draft Bell Schedule - Online Feedback Form and Discussion at PTSA Meeting
Parents, Students, & Staff,
In response to feedback from the last bell schedule draft, the staff at Lathrop came up with a newly adjusted draft bell schedule. Adjustments were made to the length of passing periods, and the placement of lunch.
Lunch was moved to the middle of the day, and passing periods were increased from five to seven minutes except where long classes are back to back. In those situations the passing periods were increased to ten minutes to allow for "brain breaks" for students and staff.
You may notice that the second class of each day is a bit longer than others. The additional time was added to the second class so that we can make daily announcements at that time.
We have scheduled a PTSA meeting at 6:30 pm on Wednesday December 4th for anyone interested in discussing the latest draft bell schedule. Please feel free to attend this meeting to share your thoughts in person. This meeting will take place in the Lathrop library.
The Bell Schedule will be finalized in time to be in place for the start of second semester.

School Spotlight: Lathrop High School
The school was built to accommodate a growing population in the early 1950’s. Before the construction of Lathrop High, the district high school was in the smaller Old Main building, which now serves as Fairbanks City Hall. Similar to many local facilities, the building was named after an early Fairbanks pioneer who helped shape the community. Austin E. “Cap” Lathrop arrived in Alaska in 1895 and established many local ventures including the Healy River Coal Corporation, KFAR Radio station, and the Empress Theater.
As the only high school in Fairbanks until 1976, Lathrop High served an important role in many lives, perhaps most apparent during the Chena River flood in 1967. During the flood event, 12,000 residents were displaced from their homes due to high water and the school was one of the few dry locations in the city. With motorboats parked in front, the school was coined “Lathrop Island” and many residents lived in the building for days and slept on sacks of grain throughout the hallways.

If you have not logged into PowerSchool Premier and updated your guardian email account, you will not receive emails from teachers or the Lathrop Malemute Daily Bulletin.

Policy Regarding Students in the Building After School
The only students allowed in the building after 2:45 p.m. each day will be those students participating in school activities. Safety Assistants will require all students not participating in school activities to wait in the Fishbowl for their rides. When the last Safety Assistant leaves work at 5:00 p.m., they will require all students not participating in school activities to exit the building. These new procedures will bring us in alignment with other district high school procedures. It will also address concerns regarding students loitering in the building after school hours.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Principal Dave Dershin at 456-7794 or email@example.com.
