Update on LOSFA Student Hub

posted Nov 1, 2017, 11:48 AM by Kesha Simmons   [ updated Nov 1, 2017, 2:15 PM ]

Attention Freshman and Sophomore Parents:

Registration for LOSFA Student Hub will begin the sophomore year of high school.   During Parent Night, parents of freshmen were also encouraged to set up an account.  However, we recently learned that students need to have transcript records in STS (Student Transcript System) along with a LASECID (Louisiana Secure ID) in order to register for a Student Hub account.  Transcript records are uploaded in STS at the end of each semester of high school.  In light of this new information, we recommend waiting until the sophomore year to create a LOSFA Student Portal Account and begin tracking TOPS eligibility.  This will allow for a full year of academics to be reviewed on the TOPS Report.

This week, sophomores will receive their Louisiana Secure ID in their homeroom classes and are advised to register on LOSFA Student Hub.   

Thanks for your patience as we work through this process.

Ms. Simmons

Freshman/Sophomore Counselor

We will be accepting donations of school supplies for the hurricane and flood victims in Hardin-Jefferson ISD near Beaumont.  Many students and teachers lost homes and many essential supplies, and the Middle School was a total loss. Middle school students will be housed at other campuses until a temporary school can be constructed with portable buildings, which could take up to 6 weeks.

We want to help ease the burden of getting them back to school!

Supplies needed:

BACKPACKS and LUNCH KITS

1-inch binders

Notebook paper                                              Post-its

And we need BOXES to put these items in!!

We will continue to update this list as we get more information.  Please take all donations to the PAC. (Pack the PAC!!) We will be collecting now through next Friday, Sept. 22.

Please bring any monetary donations to Mrs. Haineault, the bookkeeper.  We also have a PayForIt account set up for online donations.  You can bring gift cards for teachers (Amazon, Teachers Pay Teachers, Walmart, etc.) to Mrs. McDowell (C-4).

One last thing…we are having T-shirts made to support our new Hawk friends.  T-shirts will be $10 each, with all proceeds going to Hardin-Jefferson.  If you want to give $20, we can send a shirt to an HJ teacher as well!  We should have samples early next week.  Place your order with Mrs. McDowell (C-4).  We will be taking orders for the next couple of weeks (deadline to be announced later).
