End of the year report cards for High School and Middle School Students

If you would like your child’s end-of-the-year report card mailed home, provided all fees are paid, please provide a self-addressed stamped envelope to the appropriate main office.  Please include your child’s name in the bottom left hand corner on the front of the envelope.  Otherwise, report cards can be picked up and fees can be paid from June 7th - 14th from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m. and then again from 12:30 – 2:00 p.m.  Beginning June 17th, picking up report cards, paying of fees, and getting work permits can be done in the Treasurer’s Office.  Have a great summer break!

Inclement Weather and School Delays/Cancellations

Now that winter weather is upon us, the conditions always create the potential that school will be delayed, or cancelled, due to inclement weather.  LaBrae wants parents to know that LaBrae does have a 2-hour delay schedule that can be implemented when the weather conditions make a delayed start the most viable option for that day's schedule.  If a 2-hour delay is called, LaBrae pre-school classes will be cancelled for that day, and LaBrae will not serve breakfast the morning of the delay. 

Parents are encouraged to have a child care plan in place for days when a 2-hour delay is utilized, or when school is cancelled.  Also, parents should ensure that the office has accurate phone numbers on file so that school delay/cancellation phone calls are delivered properly.  In addition to the phone call via LaBrae's call system, SchoolMessenger, LaBrae will ensure that delay and cancellation notices are also sent through the District social media outlets, Twitter and Viking Nation, and notices will be sent to local radio and television stations for broadcast.

Viking Pantry

In November 2018, LaBrae Local Schools opened the Viking Pantry.  The District is pleased to be able to offer this service to our students.  LaBrae is grateful to the partnership with the Second Harvest Foodbank of the Mahoning Valley, which enabled the District the opportunity to establish a pantry to serve students. There are two pantries located in the District, one at Bascom Elementary and one at the Complex. 

LaBrae is appreciative of everyone who has donated to the Viking Pantry, or worked to make this vision become a reality. Donations to the Viking Pantry are being accepted. Donations can be dropped off at Bascom or the Main Complex (high school entrance) anytime during the school day. Please contact Amy Frederick for more information or to make a monetary donation: amy [dot] frederickatlabrae [dot] school or 330-898-0800.  If you are aware of a student in need, please use the referral form below.

Final Forms

FinalForms

FinalForms is utilized in grades PK-12 to manage emergency medicals forms, handbooks, and other activities that previously involved distribution, completion, and return of a form.  Parents with multiple children in the district will find this portal for document management to be a tremendous time saver.

At least one parent for each child must have a Final Forms account.  Students in grades 6-12 will also need to create their own individual account as the student will also be required to electronically sign various forms of acknowledgement.  Only parents and students who are new to LaBrae need to register and create accounts.  If you had a LaBrae Final Forms account last year, your account is still active.  All parents, and students who will be in grades 6-12 for the coming school year, are asked to review and electronically sign all forms by the first day of school.  For students in grades 7-12 that plan to play a fall sport, the parent and student registration needs to be completed as soon as possible in order to begin fall practices. 

To register for your account, please use the Final Forms Guide for Parents below.  The FinalForms guide will assist you in the registration process. To access the FinalForms page to begin registration, or to login, click on the FinalForms icon above, or use the login link at the bottom of this page.

Below are a few tips when registering:

  • For students in grades PK-5, student emails and student signatures are NOT required.
  • For students in grades 6-12, the student email address must be a unique email address. A registered parent email cannot be used as a student email address.
  • Grades 7-12: If you are a student athlete and your OHSAA Physical has been completed, you will NOT need to print the last two forms, the OHSAA PPE Medical History and the OHSAA PPE Physical (for Physicians). However, you will still need to fill out and SIGN both forms regarding the OHSAA PPE. Again there is no need to print these forms, if your OHSAA Physical has been completed. If your physical has not been completed you will print these forms to take with you to the physician’s office.

LaBrae Legacy Project

Sample Football BannerYellowJackets BannerState AP Poll Champions

The LaBrae Legacy Project Committee is comprised of a group of alumni and the LaBrae High School administration, and it is initiating the LaBrae Legacy Project.  The Project is an effort to publicly honor the athletic legacy of LaBrae High School, Braceville High School, and Leavittsburg High School.  The goal is to decorate the LaBrae High School gym with team banners signifying the various conference championships, playoff appearances, district/regional championships, etc. by each respective sport.  Doing so recognizes and honors our history as well as enhances our school and community spirit.  Currently, members of the committee are researching and cataloging the athletic accomplishments of the various teams throughout LaBrae's history.  The committee has tentatively set this coming 2017-2018 basketball season as the goal for displaying the team banners.  

The second function of the committee is to establish a LaBrae Athletic Hall of Fame.  The committee is developing the process of application and selection to a hall of fame.  Additionally, the committee is determining how the potential honorees will be displayed in the school.  

The committee knows that the time is now to honor the rich athletic legacy of our three high schools and our legendary student-athletes.  The projected cost of the banners and HOF start up materials is $12,000.  The committee is in need of financial support to facilitate making this dream a reality.  If you are an alumni, parent, community member, or friend, the committee would appreciate your consideration for supporting this effort with a financial donation.  To donate, please click on the "Donate" button on the district's web page.  After selecting your donation amount, please be sure to select the "LaBrae Legacy Fund" to direct your donation to this cause.  All donations are deposited, via PayPal, directly with the treasurer of LaBrae Local Schools and will be spent on this project.
