News Items from Lakeside:

  1. Moving away or otherwise not attending this year? If you are moving or otherwise will not attend Lakeside next year, please call our main office and let us know (434-975-0599).  You can also reply to this email.
  2. Is your contact information up to date?  The information we have on file is how we set up bus transportation as well as communicate with you through email and text.  If your address or phone numbers have changed, please give us a call at 434-975-0599 or reply to this email with the updated information.
  3. Schedule Release Date: Schedules will be available online by 5 PM on August 14th.  Please remember there is a lot of complicated work that goes into build a schedule for a comprehensive middle school.  We can not entertain requests to be in classes with friends or requests for specific teachers.  Changes to exploratories will be very limited due to our rising enrollment.  Our first priority is ensuring all students have a full schedule before we will begin looking at any change requests.
  4. PTO Positions: Are you looking to get involved or help our school next year?  We have two open positions for the 2024-2025 school year-Treasurer and Secretary.  Please reach out to Kate or Shannon at if interested in serving or for more information about these positions.

Transportation needs for the upcoming year.  If you used school transportation last year, your request for transportation will carry over to this year.  If you have a change, please give us a call at 434-975-0599 or reply to this email to let me know.

School Supplies: We are fortunate in that we are able to provide most everything students will need throughout the year, so you may notice our list is relatively short.  Here is a link to help guide your back to school shopping.
