New Student Orientation and Course Registration 


 Welcome new students and families! New Student Orientation and Course Registration will be Saturday, April 6th, 9 - 11 am. Orientation will be held at the Sarah Simpson Professional Development Technology Center, 801 Tipton Avenue, Knoxville, TN 37920 in the Great Room. It is important that every family attend: one parent and one student. If you have a previous, unavoidable conflict, there will be a make-up session, Monday, April 8th at the L&N STEM Academy but space is very limited. Please make every effort to attend the April 6th session.
