Hello Lake Mills Bulldog families,

It goes without saying that this is an extremely challenging time for all of us. As educators, we are most concerned with the health and well-being of our families and especially our students. We miss seeing you all on a regular basis!

This resource, provided by Central Rivers Area Education Agency, offers some helpful online databases that you can use at home to help your child(ren) continue to learn. Students and teachers are familiar with these vetted, age-appropriate and high-quality digital resources and use them in their daily work. There are read-aloud ebooks, ebooks, digital audiobooks, video, encyclopedias, articles, newspapers, and more for our youngest and oldest learners. (My understanding is that this page will continue to be updated and additional resources, including the addition of resources to help you support your child(ren)’s social/emotional well-being, will be included in the future.) Additionally, here are some tips that will help you adapt learning for your home environment. We know that this is not ideal but hopefully it offers some support.

To access the resources on this webpage, you will need to enter the login and password below for your child’s building.USERNAME: 3420lmcs PASSWORD: craea

Should you have questions, please contact me. 

Sincerely,

Chad Kohagen – Superintendent

Parents and Guardians,

Governor Kim Reynolds has recommended that all public schools in the State of Iowa close for the next 30 days. LMCS is following her recommendation and is currently closed. We will reopen on Monday, April 13th. (All practices and sporting events are also canceled during this shut down period. Mr. Boehmer has been updating the Activities Calendar frequently and so feel free to check that if you are curious about the status of an upcoming event. )

How to talk with your child(ren) about COVID 19.

Information about the Coronavirus can be found on the following websites: Iowa Department of Public Health Coronavirus and the Centers for Disease Control Coronavirus.

As stated before, to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, the CDC recommends the following actions:

  • Frequently wash your hands for 20 seconds or more with soapy water. If unavailable, use hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

We will continue to update the LMCS website with additional information as it becomes available.

Please feel free to communicate with us if you have any specific questions.

Sincerely,

Mr. Kohagen, Superintendent
