We have recently been notified that the Hwy. 169 ramps at Hwy. 93 and Sibley Co. Rd. 8 will be closing Tuesday, Sept. 2nd until early October. These closures will have a slight impact on some of our bus schedules. Bus routes affected by the ramp closures are routes 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 and 14. To adjust for this, we will be starting these routes 5 minutes earlier in the morning and riders will arrive at their drop-off 5 minutes later at the end of the day. All bus riders should be at their bus stop 5 minutes earlier than their originally assigned time. For more information, please contact Transportation Director, Pat Doherty at 507-665-4650.
Today is Wednesday, July 16. We’re past the midway point of summer.

Where has the time gone?

If students have not already purchased some of their supplies for the upcoming year, I am sure plans are being made in preparation for when that first bell beckons them back to the classroom in September. Ok, maybe our learners are trying to put off the inevitable, but it’s time to at least check your engine levels.

Are we ready to make this our best year ever? Our custodians are busy making every inch of our facilities shine. 

It’s a glow that will carry us through the 2014-15 school year and make us proud of LS-H. 

As parents, do you have goals for yourself of how to help your child succeed? Maybe, there’s a subject that needs a little boost. Is there a talent in your child that needs encouragement? As administers and teachers, are we ready to take that material from those summer conferences and apply them in the classroom?

For students, how are you going to make your mark? In the classroom, co-curriculars, in the community? Are you volunteering at the food shelf or the local hospital or nursing home? How can you make your voice be heard? What do you value? When someone asks you what two or three words define you, what will you say?
In other words, do you have a strategic plan for where you need to be now, next June and the following June? If you will be a senior, can you look at your roadmap and say you have accomplished your goals and stayed on track?
