In addition to the supplies provided by your school, students in grades K-8 are asked to provide a few additional items before the first day of school. Use TeacherLists, a free new resource, to easily find your list and even shop online for the best prices on all your back-to-school supplies, if desired. High school students will continue to receive supply lists from their teachers when school starts.

Beginning Monday, June 10, ParentSquare is replacing Lakota's current notification system for sending email, phone and text alerts to all Lakota families and staff. The new, more unified school-to-home communication tool was piloted by eight Lakota schools during the last month of the 2023-2024 school year. 

For parents and staff, no action will be required to continue receiving communications, but log into your account via OneLogin to customize your communications experience and get the most out of ParentSquare.

Points of



Culturally Diverse:

With 42% of students celebrating their multicultural backgrounds, Lakota provides a culturally-diverse experience where respect and inclusion are taught as core values.

Fiscally Responsible:

Fewer than 5% of all entities that are audited annually earn the "Auditor of State Award with Distinction" - and Lakota has received the honor 10 years in a row. 

1:1 Technology:

Through Lakota's WE are Empowered initiative, all students in grades K-12 have access to their own Chromebook for daily learning.

Dogs of Lakota:

Lakota's pack of ten therapy dogs, and growing, are wagging their tails around the district, providing therapy and emotional support to even our youngest learners. 

The 4Es:

We believe in preparing every student for success after graduation in one of the 4Es: Enrollment in higher education; Enlistment in military service; Employment as a contributing member of our community; or Entrepreneurship.
