Our schools are open for the 2016-2017 school year.

This year we have a new English Language Arts curriculum for the middle and high school courses. The English department researched English curriculums and found one that will meet the needs of our students. Part of the curriculum involves an online component. Because of this online component all the students in the high schools will have Chromebooks in the classrooms this year to work on their English courses. The English Language Arts staff have been working on getting the curriculum organized and ready for the start of the school year for our students.

The school board sees the value of smaller class sizes in our elementary level classes. The district has added additional staff to the elementary schools to lower class sizes in our elementary schools. These lower class sizes will allow our staff to provide more individual attention to each child in their classrooms.

A new program we encourage community members to get involved with is our Reading Partners program at the Minnehaha. Please consider being part of this outstanding program. The schools continue to offer programming to assist our students. We have ADSIS and Title One to work on skills, primarily in reading and math. Targeted services programs are after school for students to have fun with math and reading and keep the students connected with school. Community education has courses for all ages throughout the school year.

The staff is excited and looking forward to an outstanding school year. We thank you for allowing us to work with a precious resource in our communities, the children. We encourage you all to come to the schools for concerts, athletic events, volunteering in classrooms and see what great things are taking place in the Lake Superior School District schools.

The district has gone Google. The district migrated to a Google platform for email starting this school year. The change in our platform is a change in the email format, our new email address will be ending with @ instead of the old ending of @

The district is looking for bus drivers. We need drivers for our extra-curricular events and substitutes for our daily bus routes. If you have an interest in becoming a school bus driver please contact the district office, 218-834-8201 x8216.
