If possible, drinks should be either light or clear in color and no Monster drinks or high energy drinks are allowed at LPA.
Only students age 16 and older may leave the campus during lunch; parents may check younger students in/out at the Admin desk. Once a student leaves LPA property, LPAis no longer responsible for the student.
Students are allowed to remain on the premises for up to fifteen minutes before class, between classes or after classes.
All students must leave by 3:00 pm. A $10 fee per child for every 15 minutes late that the child is picked up may be assessed.
Students are expected to be in the study hall room if not attending class. Students may not be outside the building unless they are going directly to their vehicle and leaving LPA property.
In study hall and between classes, students are expected to be respectfully quiet to avoid disrupting classes in session. Students who are continually too loud will lose the privilege of being in study hall or at LPA at all before or after classes.

Consistent, on time, attendance is vital for your student to benefit due to the concentrated teaching time for our classes. Please only register your student for these classes if you are willing to make every effort for them to attend all scheduled classes on time.
We monitor and record tardiness, which will print on the student’s report card, i.e. permanent record. Out of respect for the rest of the class, students need to be in their assigned classes at all times and tardy notices will be issued five minutes after the class starts. Students will not be admitted to class 10 minutes or more after the class has started but will instead be sent to Study Hall and a $10 Study hall fee will be charged.
Students may be dismissed from a class due to repeat tardies.
tardies = 1 absence.
unexcused absences = dismissal from that class.*
Exception: The family may request a conference with LPA Prep Administration for the student’s records to be reviewed.Students who are tardy to a registered study hall 3 times per semester will be removed from that hour of study hall.
We do not allow students to “audit” our classes.
If you are going to be absent, you must notify the teacher as soon as possible via email or text. Absences not communicated to teachers will be counted as unexcused and will result in a zero for any assignments in each class for that day.
Joining a continuation class during the spring semester will be allowed on a case-by-case basis. The parent and/or student must be able to demonstrate to the instructor that the student has sufficient skills to be able to step into the class midway through the year and be able to keep up with the rest of the class.
All students need to be prepared and bring the requested supplies for every class meeting.
Cheating, including plagiarism, will be grounds for immediate dismissal from the class and perhaps grounds for withdrawal of a student from LPA. The situations will be handled on a case-by-case basis, but, in order to maintain the integrity of our program we will not allow it to be compromised by cheating.
Students must turn in all homework assignments to the appropriate teacher on time. If a student does not consistently turn in homework assignments, they may be dismissed from the class.
LPA’s teachers reserve the right to have homework signed by each parent before accepting the homework from a student, especially those who continually turn in sloppy or incomplete work.
It is the parent’s responsibility to help their student keep up with their homework and to ensure that their student receives proper help with any areas of individual difficulty. With a few exceptions. If a student’s grades are unsatisfactory, LPA will follow the procedure outlined in the Academic Probation & Suspension Policy.
Communication between LPA Admin, Teachers, parents, and students will be through Facebook, although occasionally communication will be made by telephone or email directly to the parent.
See “LPA Prep Probation & Suspension policy” for additional academic guidelines.
