Every Friday, the Plains Pulse is sent out to parents regarding school news and announcements from the week. This is important to follow, as there may be information about date changes, school updates/activities or PTO news.
Mrs. Wade will generally send out a phone call/text message when transportation issues arise with our AM & PM bus drivers. These notifications are sent out early in the morning so that parents can make alternate plans for getting their student to school.
Every morning students are greeted by Mrs. Wade on the PA system, followed by the Pledge. We have implemented a new way of informing students of the morning announcements. During advisory, students have the opportunity to watch their fellow student on the big screen read off any announcements that were submitted for the building. This could include after-school events, club meetings or sport reminders/cancellations. The afternoon announcements, which could include anything new that was submitted, but also repeats what was read in the morning, are also read over the PA system.
In the beginning of the year, students have the opportunity to submit an application to be an announcer for the year. Mrs. Wade will hold an interview and select the best candidate for the job!
At Lakota, transparent and timely communication is critically important. Using a mass notification system, we deliver important school and district news and announcements primarily via email, but oftentimes by phone and text message as well.
Please reference the detailed sections below to ensure you are receiving school-to-home Lakota communications that are relevant to you as a parent/guardian, staff member or community member.
All parent/guardian contact information submitted through FinalForms at the beginning of each school year and then displayed in your Home Access Center account is our primary source of email addresses and phone numbers used to communicate school and district news. Please note below the alternative method being used to update staff phone numbers.
The parent portal powered by School Messenger is no longer used to update parent/guardian contact information.
