Our Capital Construction Project has moved into its next phase, and the Board of Education is currently prioritizing items in and around our buildings that need the most attention. The Project Team shared their findings at the January 17 Board of Education meeting, and if you missed it, you will find the complete presentation and other helpful materials concerning the Project by clicking here: Construction Zone.
Next steps include further discussion about the Capital Construction Project at future Board of Education Work Sessions. The next Work Session is Tuesday, February 7 starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Lake Shore Middle School and will include conversation between the Project Team and the Board. In March, the Board of Education will act on a proposed referendum that will be included in the Annual District Budget Vote on May 16, 2017, that involves our annual transportation proposal and Board of Education member elections.
While we have been enjoying some extremely mild weather for this time of year, I don't think anyone thinks that this winter season is over. Please keep in mind that in the event of any school closings, check with our local media outlets for information. These include:
- WBEN 930 AM
- WGRZ Channel 2
- WIVB Channel 4/CW 23
- WKBW Channel 7
- Time Warner Cable News
You will also receive a message via our Blackboard Connect
system if schools will be closed or afternoon/evening activities are canceled, and notices will be posted on our website and social media outlets.
The musical season is upon us and many of our buildings will be putting on theatrical performances over the next few months. I encourage everyone in our community to attend these performances and see the outstanding talent of our students. A list of these performances can be found below under upcoming calendar events.
Our athletic teams will be wrapping up their seasons in the month of February, so be sure to come to a home game or meet and cheer on our Eagles! Our full calendar can be found here: 2017 Lake Shore Athletics Schedule.
In just a few short months we will be thinking about spring and graduation ceremonies, but until that time, we remain focused on putting forth our best efforts in our classrooms, on our stages, and in our athletics as we continue to build an Academic Powerhouse at Lake Shore.
James E. Przepasniak, Superintendent of Schools
