Parenting Tip - Dangers of Vaping

The dangers of vaping and e-cigarettes has been in the news recently, and at LTMS we have been educating students about the dangers associated with e-cigarettes and vaping devices. We will search students and suspend students for vaping-related offenses, because we are serious about providing a safe, drug-free learning environment. However, it's important to have reinforcement at home. Below is an article that includes parent resources.

P.A.W.S. Thank You

The food that was donated for conferences was wonderful! The staff at LTMS truly appreciates the food and treats that parents bring for conference meals. In the midwest, food is a sign of love and appreciation - and we couldn't be more grateful! Thank you!
