MSDLT COVID-19 Update

Throughout the pandemic, the MSD of Lawrence Township has deferred to the expertise and guidance of local, state, and federal health agencies. New guidance indicates the following and will be adopted by the MSD of Lawrence Township effective immediately:


  • Individuals who test positive for COVID-19 should isolate for 5 days followed by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others to minimize the risk of infecting people they encounter.
  • Symptomatic close contacts of a confirmed case of COVID-19 should quarantine for five days from the date of the onset of symptoms. Testing is recommended on day five.
  • Asymptomatic close contacts in the classroom may report to school or work given the district mask mandate but should monitor for symptoms. Asymptomatic and unvaccinated close contacts at lunch or participating in unmasked extracurricular activities must quarantine for five days. Those waiting for test results should not report to school or work.
  • Prevention continues to be the best option: get vaccinated, get boosted, wear a mask, and get tested if appropriate.


The district mask mandate will remain in effect for all individuals when entering district facilities, regardless of vaccination status.

Click here to access updated K-12 guidance for isolation and quarantine from the Indiana Department of Health.

Those with specific questions should contact either the school nurse or their healthcare provider.

Completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is the most important step in the financial aid process and determines your eligibility for both state of Indiana and Federal financial aid, which includes work-study and education loans. Most colleges require the FAFSA to determine your need for institutional scholarships and grants as well, so it's always best to file the FAFSA.

STEP 1: CREATE YOUR FSA ID

Students and parents are required to use an FSA ID, made up of a username and password, to access certain U.S. Department of Education online systems. Your FSA ID is used to confirm your identity when accessing your financial aid information and electronically signing your federal aid.

STEP 2: GATHER REQUIRED INFO

Gather all the information you need to complete the FAFSA. INvestEd has created a FAFSA Checklist to help you identify what you’ll need, and a place to write down your FSA ID. Some helpful information includes Social Security Number/Alien Registration Number, W2's, tax returns, and current bank statements.

STEP 3: FILE THE FAFSA!

File your application at FAFSA.gov. A critical piece is providing accurate tax information which you may be able to transfer using the IRS Data Retrieval Tool.


LC will host multiple FAFSA Completion Workshops from October through March to provide one-on-one help for students and families filing the FASA.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of our students and staff!

The LC PFO supports students and staff at LC by organizing volunteers and raising money to enhance student experiences and recognition (Homecoming, Winter formal, prom, etc) as well as provide for the care and feeding of our amazing staff through teacher classroom grants and various hospitality events (back to school, staff appreciation, mailbox treats, etc).

The students and staff appreciate your generous donations of time, items, or money when we send out event notices. YOU decide the best way for you to support LC.
