LHS PTO Weekly Announcements Information and Submissions

The LHS PTO Communications Committee has centralized the submission process for posting events and announcements to our community. Communications include the Weekly Announcements (WA’s) and the PTO website.

What are the Weekly Announcements?

The PTO communicates important information to LHS families via our Weekly Announcements. The publication is managed and sent out weekly by a parent volunteer. The Weekly Announcements are typically published on Friday morning.

What information appears via the Weekly Announcements?

Over the last few years, the PTO Board members and parent volunteers have worked hard to try to come up with an organized way to present the information contained in the announcements.  The WA’s are now divided into the following sections:

  • Important Dates

  • LHS PTO News & Events

  • LHS News and LPS Announcements

  • LHS Community News & Events

  • Lexington Community Education

  • Community Announcements

Do you want to submit a post to the LHS PTO Weekly Announcements?

If you have information to share with the LHS community, please submit it to the Weekly Announcements Manager: announcements@lhspto.org or LHS PTO Communications VP: communicationvp@lhspto.org

The deadline for submissions is Wednesday evening to allow time for review and formatting. Submissions received after Wednesday evening will be included in the WA if possible.

* Note: The email address associated with the Listserv Manager in former years, lhslistserv @ gmail.com, is being phased out in Fall 2017. Please use announcements @ lhspto.org instead.

Please follow these guidelines for submissions:

Anyone can submit information to be posted on the WA’s. However, if a request to post comes from someone outside the PTO, LHS or LPS, the decision to include the information is based on the following factors:

  • The information needs to be pertinent and connected to LHS (such as community service for students)

  • The information needs to be pertinent and connected to the Town of Lexington

  • We do not accept posts that promote businesses or classes that cost money not organized by local not-for-profits or the Town.

The only information on the Weekly Announcements that is supplied by the PTO is presented in the PTO News & Event section. All other information has been submitted to the Listserv Manager for posting. That includes any information from LHS.

The WA’s are only a small "snapshot" of what is going on at LHS.  Please visit the LHS website for complete information: https://lps.lexingtonma.org/Page/9.
