I don’t know about you, but I am certainly looking forward to the warmer weather and the longer days! Believe it or not, we will start speaking and planning  for the end of the year.

As the mid-point of the third quarter is upon us, it is extremely important for you to reach out to your child’s teachers if you have any concerns about their progress. Please don't hesitate to contact teachers,   as strong communication between school and home is crucial to student success.

Campus Construction
On or about April 1st, we will begin construction on our drainage system, ballfields and tennis courts.
 During arrival and dismissal times, both school entrances will remain open and continued to be utilized the same way. Once arrivals have concluded, the entrance closest to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton will be closed to vehicles and pedestrians except for construction traffic. At dismissal, this entrance will reopen for pedestrian and vehicular traffic. Construction will begin at 7:00 a.m. and last throughout the day. Other than the stadium field, bleachers and the school building the campus is closed.

Signs and fencing will be installed to  segregate the school environment from the construction sites. As with all projects and activities, the safety of students, staff, community and the facilities is our number one priority.
Construction management will be on-site continuously to monitor activities, traffic, noise control, and most importantly to help ensure safety practices throughout the entire project.

 We appreciate your patience and cooperation. When finished, we will have beautiful new year round ball fields and tennis courts that will significantly enhance the quality of life in the Lakeland High School Community.
PLEASE NOTE: During this time, the stadium field and bleachers will remain open and all of the other fields on  campus will remain closed to the public until completion of the project in late fall 2019.
