Dedicated Snow Closure and Emergency Line
ATTENTION ALL PARENTS, STUDENTS, AND STAFF OF THE LAKELAND JOINT SCHOOL DISTRICT:
We are working to increase communication with our parents/guardians. We have created a separate phone line dedicated to providing updated information to our parents/guardians.
