  • We unfortunately have discovered a gas leak in our boiler house this morning. Representatives from Ameren are on campus to assist us with the situation and monitor the leak. While the gas readings show no accumulation of gas in locations populated by students or staff, there is a noticeable odor in the first floor social science area. As a precautionary measure, we chose to release students and staff at 9:38 a.m. Monday for the remainder of the day. As a result of this dismissal, all extracurricular student activities, including off-site practices, are canceled with the exception of the girls volleyball sectional match being held at Illinois Valley Central High School and the Scholastic Bowl competition being held at Rochelle High School.

    As we continue to gather information throughout the day, we will keep our families updated as to the status of school for Tuesday. We currently expect students to resume classes on Tuesday.

    Student and staff safety remain our priority as we make decisions regarding this situation.

    If you have any questions or concerns, contact the office of Superintendent Steven Wrobleski at 815-223-2373.

  • As a result of the ongoing LaSalle-Peru Township High School Renovation work this summer, phone lines and Internet service will be down at LPHS from Monday, June 18 through Wednesday, June 20. District offices, currently located in the mobile classroom units in the East Gym parking lot, will remain open during this time. Administrators will be checking email and voicemail during the outage, but responses may be delayed. Summer school classes will remain in session during the outage with the exception of the AAP course, which will be following a revised schedule already shared with students.

  • The LaSalle-Peru Township High School family is deeply saddened by the news of Taryn Pakenham’s tragic death on Sunday.

    Taryn graduated from LP High School in May.

    Service Providers will be available for grief counseling for students by appointment. To set up an appointment, please call the Support Services Office at (815) 220-2751.

  • As the LaSalle-Peru Township High School Renovation continues, the district feels the need to inform community members that they are not allowed to climb into dumpsters on campus as it poses a serious safety concern. While LPHS may provide opportunities for community members to haul away used pieces of district furniture or equipment, as was done over the Memorial Day weekend, those items will be placed on campus grounds and notification will be made of those situations. In all other cases, climbing into or rummaging through dumpsters poses safety risks that cannot be tolerated.

    Additionally, beginning Monday, June 4, the main LP school building will be closed as the Renovation continues through the summer. LP’s summer office staff will primarily be working out of the mobile classrooms in the East Gym parking lot this summer. Due to some technical limitations in the mobile units, the office staff will have a reduced number of phones in use. All administrators and other office staff will still be able to receive voicemail messages during this process, but LP advises callers to use the general office phone number, 815-223-1721, to reach a member of the LP staff this summer.

  • Attention LP Families: Due to the continued heat issues – especially on the third floor – and our limitations to where we can move teachers and students, we will dismiss school immediately following 5th period today (Tuesday, Sept. 26) at 12:14 pm. Periods 6 and 7 will be cancelled. Thankfully tomorrow’s temperatures are returning to normal fall conditions in the 70s. We appreciate everyone’s patience, flexibility and teamwork over these past four school days.
