Help a Lakeside Family in Crisis

The Lakeside School Board has created an Emergency Fund to ensure that our programs can continue to support and educate children and their families during this unprecedented time.  We know that individual circumstances may be changing in rapid and unexpected ways which may impact a family's ability to pay tuition at this time.  The Emergency Fund will support additional tuition assistance needs while ensuring that our faculty and staff can continue the important and enriching work of supporting parents and children through this crisis.


How does a school provide distance learning for young children?

During the Covid-19 school closure Lakeside School faculty are supporting parents by providing on-line classes, at-home lesson plans, and individual teacher check-ins for Elementary students; videos of class songs, stories, and puppet shows, treasure hunts, letters to each student, and parent support through group and individual phone calls, links to articles, and activities for Kindergarten, Sprouts, and Mountain Tots classes. Most importantly, our Faculty and Board are providing a strong community presence through virtual community and class meetings, and a google classroom forum.


Thank you for supporting our Community School!
