The Principal's Message is a communication tool used by Ms. Crescenzi to give parents information about the happenings at LASA. Written in straightforward language it highlights student/campus successes, discusses concerns, gives context to upcoming events and helps parents think through the complexities of living sanely with teenagers in the house. The PM is electronically sent to all parents of currently enrolled students most Sunday mornings through Naviance. You can not sign up for it.
New to LASA students are not in Naviance until the weekend before school starts each school year.
Current LASA Families: If you are not getting the Principal's Messages or any other communication directly from the school to your email, you may need to update your contact information. To do so, you will need to use the 'Parent Self-Serve' tile in the AISD Parent Cloud. This information is imported into Naviance every evening and will update with any changes from the previous import. This process keeps the Naviance Parent Cloud in sync with our SIS (TEAMS) Parent Contact Information.

PARENT RUN COMMUNICATIONS AND GROUPS
LASA has two very active parent organizations, PFLASA and PTSA, that work well together and have separate missions and goals. Please be part of both to help your student have a successful journey through LASA. Every parent/guardian of a LASA student is automatically part of the Parents & Friends of LASA (PFLASA). The LASA PTSA (Parents, Teachers, Students Association - the high school version of PTA, and a member of Austin Council of PTAs and the Texas PTA) is a membership organization, who advocates for all LASA students at various levels including district and state. Please join the LASA PTSA (link below).

PARENT CLASS/GRADE LEVEL GOOGLE GROUPS
