The LMS Lowdown

June 11, 2021


This is the final Lowdown of the year. It's amazing that school will close on Wednesday. We are looking forward to a much better opening next year. I hope all of you get to spend time with your families, get away and just relax. See you in September.


At last night's Board of Education meeting they passed a motion making masks optional on buses and both indoors and outdoors for staff and students for the remainder of the year and the summer, effectively immediately.


Graduation will be Tuesday at 3pm out back of Ashbrook. People can start arriving at 2:30pm. Masks and social distancing are optional, but recommended for those who are unvaccinated.



Our 8th graders took advantage of the new optional mask and relaxed social distancing rules and had a great time outside today.
