    COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan

    The Lakewood Public Schools Board of Education approved the District’s required COVID-19 Preparedness and Response Plan, which is available under the COVID-19 tab and District Plans tabs. This plan contains information related to health and safety issues for in-person
    instruction.

    We are preparing information for each building, to be posted shortly at the same COVID-19 and District Plans on this website, regarding what the student day will look like for those choosing in-person instruction.

    For those who have chosen or are still considering remote instruction, please click here for information specific to remote learning.


    Return to School Parent Survey

    As we plan for students to return to school, we are doing so with the intention to offer a quality instructional experience in the safest environment possible. To do this, it is very important that we gather information from every family in the district. Please use the link below to complete a survey helping us tailor a plan to the needs of our families.

    Parents, click here for more information regarding completing a survey to help us tailor a plan to meet your family's needs and the needs of all our Lakewood students.

Welcome

  • Dear Lakewood Community Member,

    In his 1779 Bill for the More General Diffusion of Knowledge, Thomas Jefferson laid out the idea and purpose of public education.  Two very important ideas were imbedded in Jefferson’s proposition – community and excellence.  I know of few other communities as supportive in the pursuit of excellence for its young people than communities that make up the Lakewood Public Schools.

    Whereas Jefferson was focused on the expectation of developing citizens for a new democracy, today the expectations of schools are numerous, varied and ever-increasing.  Beyond reading, writing, and arithmetic, the staff of the Lakewood Public Schools is committed to the intellectual, physical, and emotional well-being of each individual student. 

    This commitment to students as individuals and learners is evident in the district’s mission, vision, and promise:

    • Mission – Preparing Our Students for Success
    • Vision – As a community, we will: Educate, Empower, and Equip our Students for Life
    • Promise – Every Student, Every Class, Every Day

    We are proud of the rich tradition of the Lakewood Public Schools and thank those who have done so much to support the district.  Whether you are currently a community member, are new to the area or are considering choosing a different, more personal approach to education for your student, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    With Viking Pride
