We have been informed that Curry Street has been shut down for a police investigation regarding a vehicle accident. The closure is expected to last several hours, which will result in bus delays for Lakeland High School, Thomas Jefferson Elementary School, and Lakeland Copper Beech Middle School.
Parents/Guardians who are planning to pick up their child(ren) from Thomas Jefferson should be advised that Gomer Street is not accessible from Route 6/Curry Street and should use an alternate route.
Drivers will use alternate routes to the greatest degree possible, but Lakeland HS, Thomas Jefferson ES, and Copper Beech MS families should expect a delayed drop-off time.
We will communicate any further updates with the community should they arise. Thank you for your understanding.
Daniella Ferreira: New York State School Nurse Association Award for Excellence in Nursing
We are very proud to share that Daniella Ferreira is a recipient of the New York State Association of School Nurses Award for Excellence in Nursing. This honor recognizes the efforts of our nursing supervisor throughout this school year and her career.

Daniella has been with Lakeland Central School District since 2012 and has seamlessly transitioned into the role of nursing supervisor in the midst of the pandemic. Her leadership during this school year has ensured a consistent pandemic response across the district and she has been a reliable, informed, and caring resource for our staff and students. Congratulations Daniella on this well-deserved honor.
