  • Lockdown drill; a letter to parents & guardians.
    April 10, 2018

    Dear Parents & Guardians,

    Today at 9:15 a.m. we executed an unannounced lockdown drill, our second lockdown drill of the year. Each school year, all MSAD #61 schools perform lockdown drills to ensure that protocols and safety measures are in place. Monthly, the district’s Emergency Response Team meets to review incidents that have taken place across the country, including ongoing improvements to Lake Region schools that would support a more effective response to potential incidents at our local level.

    In an effort to more accurately assess the effectiveness of our response protocols, today’s drill was unannounced. Simulating an authentic lockdown situation gives us invaluable feedback, and we can use that data to improve our processes here at the middle school to ensure your student’s safety in times of potential crisis. Frequently, local law enforcement officials support our drills, and they have excellent feedback to offer as well.

    Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have regarding our lockdown drill today, or any of the measures we put in place to prepare for emergency response situations. Additionally, take this opportunity to speak with your child regarding their experience in today’s drill. I understand this can be a stressful and unnerving experience for many individuals, and we conscientiously plan to support kids through our school counselors and in-building social workers.

    Thank you for your continued support of Lake Region Middle School and our amazing students and teachers; we are always seeking to grow and improve. Your support makes that possible.

  • The School Day Extended One Hour
    March 20, 2018

    Dear Parents/Guardians,

    Happy Spring! As winter has left us with a number of snow days to make up, the School Board has elected to use 10 extended days to account for two of the missed school days. We have completed one of the “extra hour Wednesdays,” leaving us with nine more days that will be extended by one hour.

    The dates for the extended hour school day are as follows:
    Wednesdays: March 21, 28; April 4, 11 (total of 4 days remaining)
    Mondays: March 26; April 2, 9, 23, 30 (total 5 days)

    Thank you very much for your flexibility in assisting us to reduce the number of make-up days added to the end of the school year. Please contact me with any questions you may have.
