    We are grateful for the accomplishments of our students, staff, parents, and community members this year.  From the announcement of a Blue Ribbon School to the development of partnerships with great corporations for project-problem based learning to support our middle schools, there are many aspects about LRSD of which we can be proud.  We have had teachers selected for state and national honors, representing the best in their profession, who are a part of our school district family.   I have no doubt that the coming months will bring additional honors and celebrations.  By continually checking the website, you can help promote and share these accomplishments, as well as our message that LRSD is #OnTheRise!

    Finally, we also know that the many parents are exploring their educational choices-options for the 2020-2021 school year.  Please be informed as you make these choices, view our schools’ webpages, and most importantly set up a tour at the school of your choice.  We believe that you will find that we offer a variety of options to meet your child’s needs.  We are honored to serve you!
