Bus Safety Month…


Please remember to watch out for buses on our roadways.  They make frequent stops as they deliver our most valuable assets!  Please remind students who ride our buses to always follow the safety rules!  These rules are in place for the safety of all passengers on the bus.  All students should use the same behavior on the bus as they would in the classroom!  So whether you’re a parent, a student, or a driver on the roads in our district or any other district, always keep School Bus Safety in mind.

Thank you from the Lakota Local Schools Transportation Department

Help Us Recycle!

Once again, the Lakota Schools will be collecting markers for recycling as part of the Crayola ColorCycle program.  Last year, we collected over 3,000 markers!  This amount helped create 10 gallons of fuel and kept the plastic out of the landfills.  Our collection drive will start on September 4th and run through the end of the school year.  All forms and brands of markers will be accepted – including dry erase, permanent, and highlighters.  Please send in your old markers with your child or drop off at your building’s office.  We will have collection bins located throughout the buildings.  If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Melissa Renfro at

Thank you for your help!

School Messenger for Alerts…


Dear Parents/Guardians of Lakota Local Schools,

We believe it is important to communicate with our families.  One way we do that is with our instant message system.We are using a company called School Messenger

The phone numbers and emails that will be used initially are the contacts listed in our student information system.  If you would like to be able to change how you are contacted we will need a current email address in our system. Please send your current email address using the link provided and we will enter that into our student information system. Once your address is in you will be able to go to and create an account that will allow you to add numbers and addresses to your profile.
