In the interest of student safety – especially in light of recent events with neighboring school districts – we wanted to proactively share this guidance with you.
We’ve watched some local athletic events end with sudden evacuations as a result of threats that could endanger large crowds of students, staff and visitors. This unfortunate trend could impact Lakota athletic events. And while every investigation so far has ended in empty threats, we will always prioritize safety over anything else and take all threats seriously.
In the event of a cancellation that would send students home well in advance of the anticipated end time of any home or away game, please talk with your child about a contingency plan.
As always, we appreciate your support and partnership in keeping our schools safe.
