LWMS Update

Dear LWM Parent / Guardian,

On March 12 we had a report of a suspicious person near our school grounds.  As a result, the police were called and investigated.  After interviewing the individual, police confirmed that there was no concern and no threat to the school or the public.

If any future incidents occur, we will follow up with the police to ensure student safety.

Yours Truly,

Scott Anderson

A little bit cooler …

As many of you know on Thursday March 1 our school had a flood in the basement. This caused our boilers (our main heat source) to stop working. On Friday we had a company set up a portable boiler system. Over the weekend this portable system broke down. The company is fixing it, but we will once again be without our main heating system on Monday.

The temperature will be similar to Friday of last week, and the school will still be a reasonable temperature. Students should dress warmly and in layers. We hope that the heat will be restored by the end of the day. We will be setting up portable heaters in the colder areas of the school.

School will be in session. All of our other systems are working well and we are looking forward to seeing the students tomorrow morning. We will keep you up to date as we know more information. If you have any questions please contact the school.

Thank you for your support.

Stranger Alert

 Dear Parents and Guardians

On February 27 at approximately 2:35 in the afternoon, two of our students were approached by a stranger as they were walking home from the bus stop on Otter Lake Road.  The stranger was driving a white pickup truck and asked the students twice if they wanted a ride.  The students refused twice and kept walking.  The man then drove off.  The students told their parents and the police were called. 

Teachers will be discussing the incident with classes.  Please help your children and the community by discussing this information, safety and the importance of not going anywhere with strangers.

If you have any questions, please call me at the school.

Yours Truly

Scott Anderson
