Please please please, check out this video, visit for more info, and make your voice heard on voting day!

La Follette High School was built in 1962 and received additions in 1965 and 1969. In every (virtual or in-person!) classroom, you’ll find students who embody the tenets of Lancer PRIDE – Personal responsibility, Respect, Integrity, Determination, and Excellence.

Students are eager to help lead La Follette into a future that includes bright, spacious areas that support multiple learning styles, collaboration, and a positive school climate. They are ready to explore Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics (STEAM) in twenty- first century labs and makerspaces.

Class of 1981 - 40th Reunion

Can you believe it has been 40 years since we graduated from LaFollette High School? We can’t understand where the time went either. It seems like just yesterday we were wandering the F-wing, hanging out in the Commons or being hassled by Mrs. Taylor or…(fill in the blank).

That said, it is reunion time again!!

As you know, there is lots going on in the world right now and we need your help so that our 40th reunion is amazing. There is a link below to a survey that will take you about 3 min to complete. We sending this email to the 53% of our class who we have been able to locate an email address for, but attached to this email is our missing in action list.

Please take a look at it. If you know how to reach someone on this list, please forward them this email as soon as possible.
Here’s just a couple more pieces of information:

  • In the survey we ask for your street address. We are NOT going to publish this information and we are not going to use it for anything other than contacting you for Class of 1981 business via US Mail. Even if you think you gave us this info already, please fill it out again.
  • In addition to reunion events, the class of 1981 has been sponsoring a scholarship for a LaFollette graduate annually. Many members of our class are not aware of this. FYI--Your contact information may be used to send you updates about this scholarship.
  • If you are lucky enough to have a class of 1981 member as your significant other, both of you will receive this email and the survey. We ask that each of you complete it separately
