(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- As summer comes to a close, incoming freshman and new Mustangs are encouraged to prepare for the upcoming 2017-18 school year.

New student orientation will take place at 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Aug. 8 in the school’s auditorium. All new Mustangs and their families are urged to attend. Both sessions will consist of the same information, so it is necessary to attend only one.

The orientation will discuss important information about first day procedures, academic requirements, clubs, sports, and extracurricular activities. Schedules will not be distributed at this time.

Students’ first day of school is Aug. 10. LRHS Principal Craig Little is excited for the upcoming school year, and extends a warm welcome to new and returning mustang families.

“To those students and parents who are new to Lakewood Ranch High School, we extend a sincere welcome and best wishes for an exciting school year,” he said. “We hope you will quickly feel at home and become involved in the many activities our school has to offer.”

Students and parents are encouraged to check out the LRHS website for information on the dress code policy, student ID policy, and first day homeroom locations.
