The Cherokee Chronicle
Welcome back to our 2021-22 school year at Lamar School! We are so excited and honored to work with your child and to begin to return to a more normal school year! On behalf of myself, the faculty, and the staff, I want to thank our students and families for the patience and sacrifices you made last school year to help your child succeed in their schooling during the heart of the pandemic. Please see the Covid 19 Guidelines below for details about what health and safety measures are still in place this school year.
As we move forward in this new year, Lamar School is focused on not only catching students up and filling learning in deficit areas, but also addressing social-emotional learning and helping fulfill our school's mission of "meet[ing] the educational needs of all students enabling them to be responsible and productive citizens."

We are pleased that once again every student at Lamar will have access to a ChromeBook this school year. However, only students in grades 6-8 will take them home. Grades K-5 will store them in their homeroom classrooms. For this reason, only students in grades 6-8 will need to have a ChromeBook Contract signed. This will come home with them the first week and needs to be returned before a device can be issued.
Call the school office at 753-1130 if you have questions.
