Covid Testing Clinic Following Spring Break

For the purpose of reassuring yourself and others, we will offer a voluntary COVID rapid testing clinic for students, their immediate family, and staff on Sunday, April 11th from 9am-12pm in the LPES Cafeteria. The rapid tests involve only a shallow swab of the nose and will be administered by our school nurses. Testing will take about 20 minutes. Pre-registration is encouraged but not required at this link.

Senior Portraits Needed

Seniors, we need your senior portraits for the yearbook! They were due January 1st, so if you still haven't turned yours in, please do so as soon as possible. Photos may be uploaded to the "Yearbook" section in your 12th Grade Google Classroom. See Mr. LaVallee if you have any questions or email him at blavallee@lakeplacidcsd.net.

We must also have signed consent from your photographer to publish your senior portrait in the newspaper. Please sign and return this consent form for use of your senior portraits to Mrs. Taylor in the main office (click the blue link to open). Thank you!

COVID Reminders

Here are a few reminders:

  • Please DO NOT send your child to school if they are not feeling well or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19. Please contact the main office to let us know if you will need to keep your child home for any reason.

  • Pay close attention to any emails or phone calls from the school. If there are any schedule changes or we need to move back to remote learning, you will find out via email and automated phone call.

  • To keep our community as safe as possible, please practice mask-wearing, social distancing, and frequent hand-washing, along with using hand sanitizer when needed, both in and out of school.

Backpack Program- FREE Meals for the Weekends!

If you are interested in having your child receive a bag filled with meals for their weekend (2 breakfasts, 3 dinners, snacks, and bi-weekly milk & egg cards), please call the office at (518) 523-2474, ext. 4001 to sign up. Bag deliveries are each Friday.
