eTiger/Weekly Tiger FAQ

List of 8 frequently asked questions.

  • Q: When's the deadline for submissions?

    Every Wednesday at 5pm
  • Q: How many times may I have my announcement published?

    Three is the maximum number of times the same announcement may be included in the newsletter, and never more than twice in a row.

    More Details
    We encourage users to limit their announcements to running only once or twice because readers tend to stop paying attention when they see the same thing repeatedly. Please include save-the-dates as 1 of the 3 times total.

    The eTiger is sent to LWHS students. The Weekly Tiger is sent to parents/guardians of LWHS students. Faculty and staff receive copies of both.
