Calendar Changes for Snow Days

Last spring, the School Board approved this year's calendar with a provision to make up missed days due to snow. We need to use two of those days already, and we're hoping we don't have to use the third!

One make-up day is scheduled for an original non-attendance day in March; this day will be an in-school attendance day with early release.

The second day is planned for the Monday of President's Weekend, but is an online or virtual learning day. Students will complete their lessons at home for this school day. More details will come about that, but please note these days on your calendar!


Monday, February 16: Online/Virtual Learning Day (work at home)

Friday, March 20: School Attendance Day (early release, 1pm)


Please watch for information and materials for Feb. 16 virtual learning day!

It's Lutheran Schools' Week! January 25-30

We have a full week of fun planned for next week! This is a special time to celebrate the blessing of our school together and enjoy some all-school activities.

The special dress days are listed below. Please remember that clothing needs to be appropriate for school and all our activities, especially for the skating classes each day (K-8). We suggest long pants to protect your knees!


MONDAY - SOS DAY: "Show Off your Socks!" This is the day to wear your wildest leggings or socks, and be sure we can see them! Jeans and theme or TLS shirts will complete the outfit.


TUESDAY - BLAST FROM THE PAST DAY Wear something to represent a past decade or time in history. It can be a hair style, an accessory, or complete look! Do you think we'll see a pioneer, hippie, greaser or cowboy?


WEDNESDAY - CRUSADER DAY Wear your TLS Spirt Wear! Show your Crusader Pride!


THURSDAY - SELFIE DAY: No, we're not taking pictures of ourselves, we're going to wear something that shows others our personality! What represents YOU? It may be a talent, an activity, a hobby or interest...
