AUGUST 5, 2020

Based on Governor Dewine’s mandate on August 4, 2020 that all K-12 students must wear masks to school, coupled with Lake Elementary School’s lack of air conditioning, the start date of the Lake Local School District will be pushed back to TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 2020.

While we look forward to seeing our students as quickly as possible, we think it is in the best interests of approximately 600 of our youngest Flyers and the 85 staff members in the elementary school to wait the extra time so, hopefully, the weather will cool down and the building will be more comfortable. 

Thank you to the people who offered last night to buy additional window air conditioners to install in Lake Elementary classrooms. Unfortunately, there is not enough electric capacity in that building to handle the additional load, but your generosity is much appreciated.

Additional information will be forthcoming from each building in the next several days. Once again, we appreciate your patience and flexibility as we work through this crisis.
