Lakewood Parents and Families,
The 2020-2021 school finished up just a few short days ago. It has been quite a year, but I want to thank you for your cooperation and the important role you played in our educational journey over the last year.
Parents were asked to be even greater partners in your child’s education the past 18 months. Your efforts to support your child in either remote or in-person learning were critical. It is my hope that as we transition back into a more traditional school year next year, the strong partnership between home and school continues for the benefit of our Lakewood students.
Monday, August 23 marks the start of the 2021-2022 school year for students in grades 1 through 12. Thursday, August 26 is the first day of school for our incoming kindergarten Lakewood Lancers. I am extremely excited to welcome our new and returning students. We are planning to return to in-person instruction for all five days of the school week. More details and time specifics will be sent later in the summer.
Please continue to encourage your child to read throughout the summer. All students are encouraged to participate in our virtual summer academic program beginning July 12 and completing August 13. This is a great way for your child to continue to grow academically and sharpen skills during these summer months. Contact Mrs. Patti Pickering at [email protected]
if you are interested.
Thank you for your continued support of our Lakewood Schools. Enjoy your summer and I look forward to seeing you next school year. It’s Lancer Time!
Dr. Mark Gleichauf
Superintendent, Lakewood Local Schools
