    In compliance with MGL Chapter 71, Section 96 & 97, the health office at LMACS will be conducting confidential verbal screenings related to substance use with the goal to reinforce healthy decisions to students and, also if needed, assist them to obtain support if they are using substances. The verbal screening will take place from January 21st to February 13th and will be with students whose first term at LMACS was spring 2018 or Fall 2018. Please see the letter, resources and opt-out form for further information. Email the school nurse or call the health office at 978-656-3461 with any questions or concerns.

    From the Executive Director

    LMACS is ready to welcome 100 students for the 2018-2019 school year. We are accepting new students until September 28, 2018…so if you know any young people between the ages of 16 and 21 who are interested in working on their high school diplomas, please have them apply.

    As mentioned in the spring letter, we had some exciting academic achievements during the 2017-2018 school year that continued through the spring MCAS "season" where our students excelled in their MCAS tests. Congratulations to all.

    This year we will begin our field trips with the first of two visits to the Mathew Boule Memorial Park in Dracut, MA. Mat is an LMACS alum who died serving our country in 2003 in the Iraq War. The visits are very moving and emotional for all of us. At the Memorial, we get to meet Mat's parents, Leo and Sue, and, once again, we will leave flowers in memory of all those who made the ultimate sacrifice. From the Boule Memorial, we'll be off to Camp Massapoag for a more lighthearted afternoon where we come together as a community through boating, basketball, and burgers! (Students have come to expect a visit from the ice cream truck!!!! Very popular time of the day…)

    During the 2018-2019 academic year, we will focus on improving attendance. Our campaign is "STRIVE FOR 85"…85% attendance, that is. We predict that any student who attends 85% of the scheduled school days will be successful at LMACS and will graduate in the shortest of time possible.

    Once again this year, LMACS is very grateful to all the organizations that support our programs. We could not be able to provide this exceptional educational opportunity to our students without their help.

    So, we’re off and running at LMACS…and Go Sox!
