(Uniontown, Ohio) – Lake Local Schools is issuing important back-to-school information to the community!
Laptop computers will be issued to Lake students in grades 7-12 in mid-August 2019, before school starts. This will be the fourth year laptops have been issued to Lake students to assist them with their studies, as part of Lake Local Schools’ enhanced technology initiative.
All students were required to turn in their laptops at the conclusion of the 2018-19 school year to be serviced and updated. While students in grades 7 and 10 will receive new devices for the 2019-20 school year, all other students will be issued the same laptop that they used over the course of the last school year.
The first day of school for Lake students in grades 1-9 will be Tuesday, August 20, 2019, and Wednesday, August 21, 2019 for grades 10-12. Kindergarteners will return August 27, 2019. Students in grades 7-12 will enjoy all the amenities of Lake Middle/High School (LMHS) when they return to classes, as the new east addition facing Market Ave. will be completed by the start of school. It will include a new main entrance, gymnasium, Athletic Office, boys and girls locker rooms and restrooms, staircase, and classrooms.
(An Open House and Ribbon Cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of the final, eastern addition of LMHS is planned for Monday, August 19, 2019 beginning at 5:30 p.m. at Door 1 of LMHS.)
