Lightning Time

Each week Long Reach High school is implementing a "Lightning Time" period on Wednesdays, 9:00am to 9:30am, between periods 2 and 3. We are excited to give students space in their schedule to work with their teachers on a rotating schedule (week1 will be P1, week 2 will be P2 etc), and to have the opportunity to work with other staff for academic purposes (if they schedule this beforehand). Lightning time gives students choice in how they approach their academic responsibilities and we hope that students are empowered by the opportunity. See below for more information.
