Free and Reduced Lunch Application

Hello Lakota Families!

While the students will eat at no cost next year, it is still important that we have a free and reduced application filled out if you were to qualify. The application looks somewhat different this year because of the program we are operating under. Please use this application as we have not been notified by PaySchools that our online application has been updated yet.

Thank You, Michelle Guzman

    Hello Lakota Families!!!

    Many of you may have already heard that the USDA has continued our waivers for the 2021/2022 school year.

    So what this means for us is that breakfast and lunch will be at no cost next year also. Any money that is in student accounts will not go anywhere. It will stay in the account unless extras are purchased. Next year, we plan on bringing back the items that we used to sell; baked chips, low fat ice cream, cookies, etc. 

    If you have any questions, you can email me at or call 419-986-6628 or your school office and ask for the cafeteria.

    Thank you,

    Michelle Guzman


    We are excited to announce the addition of another preschool class for the 2021-22 school year. We have additional spots available for children age 3 or older by August 1, 2021. The preschool will be a full day preschool, 2 days a week (Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday). The cost of the program is $130 per month.  If you are interested in your son/daughter attending our preschool, please complete the online enrollment on the district webpage. Enrollment does not guarantee your child a spot. Priority admission will be given to Lakota residents and students who are eligible for kindergarten the following year (2022-23). Proof of residency may be requested. Notifications for the additional preschool spots will be mailed and information packets will need to be returned promptly.

    COVID-19 Reporting Procedures

    Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced on August 27, 2020 an Ohio Department of Health order that requires K-12 schools to establish a mechanism for parents and guardians to report confirmed cases of COVID-19 among their children. In that order is the responsibility of each school district to make publicly available non-identifying information about positive COVID-19 cases.

    School Nurse McKenzie Frey, is the District’s COVID-19 Coordinator per state order. She is responsible for tracking all COVID-19 positive cases and reporting confirmed cases to the Sandusky County Health Department. In order to expedite contact tracing and avert any further transmission of COVID-19 we are asking parents/guardians of all Lakota students to please call the nurse to report positive tests and/or cases of COVID-19 no later than twenty-four hours after receiving a positive test and/or diagnosis.

    Within 24 hours of Lakota Schools becoming aware of a student, teacher, staff member, or coach who has tested positive or been diagnosed with COVID-19, we will notify staff and families via ParentSquare of a positive test or case of all students or staff who share a classroom space or have participated in a school activity during the COVID-19 infectious period of a student, teacher, staff member, or coach.

    Please contact Mrs. Frey with any questions or concerns you may have for your student(s). She can be reached by phone at 419-986-6640 ext. 5111 or by email at
