Garden Towers at Lafayette!

Posted on: February 22, 2018

Lafayette has welcomed some pretty unique aeroponic garden towers!  Some 5th grade helpers were able to assemble these and get them ready to use.  These towers are hydroponic and use no soil, and classes will be able to grow plants in them year-round, indoors!  Watch for one tower to be in the main building and one tower to be in the modular building.

Reminder about inclement weather procedures

Posted on: February 20, 2018

Sometimes we have to close school, delay the start of school, or release early because of bad weather. This is the annual reminder of procedures for school closures or schedule changes due to inclement weather.

When the decision has been made to close school or delay the start, we rely on local radio and television stations for notifications. Closure and delayed start information will ordinarily be broadcast by 6:30 a.m. Closure information will also be posted on the District website.

 Our District subscribes to FlashAlert. This service forwards school closure information to local radio and television stations. Staff, parents, or community members can register to receive these notices directlyNotifications will be sent via email. For those of you with tablets or smart phones, you can also receive messages by downloading the FlashAlert Messenger app. This app is available on Google Play or the iTunes app store. There are no costs to the recipients for using the email or app for notifications.

All addresses registered on FlashAlert will remain confidential. You will receive an email message once per year asking if you wish to continue your subscription and to confirm your email address.  Subscribers should be aware that some email spam filters may prevent messages from being received.
