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.

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.
