It's finally here! Time for our juniors to take the SAT on Wednesday morning. We will start that testing promptly at 8am so students should plan on eating prior to testing and report to their testing room before 8am. Here is what is happening for all of our students tomorrow during testing: 7th. & 8th grade students = school runs as normal for the whole day 9th & 10th grade students = report directly to the auditorium for attendance and information on break out sessions available during the SAT testing hours. 11th grade students = report directly to their testing room and take the SAT 12th grade students = Use this day for job shadowing or college visits After testing is over we will resume classes as normal for the rest of the day. If seniors are job shadowing or taking a college visit, they should let the office know so they can be marked out for the day. We anticipate being able to run a normal high school schedule 4th hour (12:40pm). Our 9th and 10th graders will eat the first high school lunch (11:35-12:00) then our juniors will eat the second lunch at 12:10. Students not in the building should plan to report by 12:00 so they are ready to go with 4th hour classes.
We are aware that many families in Laker Nation are experiencing power issues or their students didn't bring home a device. It's the 1st day of a new trimester too. We are going to do the best we can with this unique virtual learning day! Staff: the buildings have power, so feel free to go in!
For the safety of our drivers and students Lakeland Schools will be doing virtual learning today. There are many limbs down and blocking roads. Please be careful out there! Students will follow their schedules for synchronous/virtual learning today!
Due to a mix of fog, downed tree limbs, and high water...all Lakeland Schools will be on a 2 hour delay today! (2-23-23) Doors will open at 9:45 am.
Happy School Bus Driver Appreciation Day! Thank you for the work you do each day to transport our students safely to and from school!
Just a reminder Lakeland students do not have school Monday 2/20-Wednesday 2/22! Teachers should report on Wednesday for Professional Development!

A huge shout out to all of our staff for making today's unplanned early dismissal so smooth! A special shout out to our Transportation department; many had to come in from home or other jobs to make this happen. Thank you to our families for your patience with the process! Hopefully we NEVER have to do that again!
