Please join Lakeland in the fight against vaping on October 29 at 6 PM. The presentation, VAPING AND OUR KIDS: The Dangers of E-cigarettes, will be held in the Lakeland Copper Beech Middle School Cafe This presentation is intended for adults only. The Student Assistance Counselors of Lakeland High School, Walter Panas, and Lakeland Copper Beech Middle School will provide parents and community members with information pertaining to the ongoing vaping epidemic. Judy Mezey, the Director of Community Based Programs at Student Assistance Services, will present and discuss with parents vaping education, the latest trends and information about adolescent/teen use, and how parents can successfully discuss and address their child's use/curiosity.
Lakeland is one of a select number of districts that houses two high schools. Many of the frequently asked questions we receive relate to similarities or differences when comparing Lakeland and Walter Panas High Schools. While we strive to provide consistent curriculum, instruction, assessment, facilities, co and extracurricular programs, it would be impossible to duplicate everything that takes place on each campus. Each school has staffing with different certifications and areas of expertise, as well as unique student populations that require specific and varied services. Clubs and other organizations are often initiated or sponsored by students and staff with particular interests that may not be of interest to the other high school. (read more)
