Especially as we enter the winter months, please remember that Lakota uses a mass notification system to deliver urgent school and district announcements - such as weather-related closures and delays - via email, phone and text message, based on your preferences.

Submit any updated phone numbers or email addresses via FinalForms and check your preferences for the different message types in School Messenger. Lakota can only send text messages to mobile numbers that have provided consent. To complete the opt-in process, simply text the letter "Y" to Lakota's short code (675-87) from the device associated with the phone number provided via FinalForms.

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 4% of all entities that are audited annually earn the "Auditor of State Award with Distinction" - and Lakota has received the honor nine years in a row. 

1:1 Technology:

Through Lakota's WE are Empowered initiative, 100 percent of all students in grades 3-12 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.
