A Message from Administration

Dear LKMS Families and Community,

American Education Week (11/15-19) looks different this year since HCPSS schools are closed to visitors. HCPSS Statement- "To limit interaction with students in the school building, visitors are not permitted to attend events that occur indoors or outdoors during the school day, such as spelling bees, assemblies, activities associated with American Education Week, and field days."

While we hope to show off our talented staff in person in the future, for now, we'd like to recognize and appreciate the efforts of the LKMS staff via electronic kudos. Please use this link to write a note or letter to the entire staff, small groups, or individual(s). Feel free to use this link as many times as you want. Thank you for helping us celebrate the LKMS staff!

In addition, Education Support Professionals (ESP) Day is November 17, 2021! Join us in celebrating the amazing school support staff, including paraeducators, nurses, and custodians who continue to go above and beyond for our students and our school community. 

We wish you a wonderful weekend!

Ms. Lublin and Mrs. Ketterman
