Student writing in class

Dear Lake Families,

DPS announced Wednesday evening, following Governor Polis’ order to suspend in-person learning through Friday, April 17, that DPS is moving to remote learning for the district beginning Tuesday, April 7. Lake Middle School has developed a comprehensive plan for remote learning and digital instruction. All students will engage in their instruction through their teacher Schoology pages.

At the beginning of each week, all teachers will assign 5 daily lessons with attached assignments with optional practice time as well on their schoology class pages. Additionally, all teachers will be available daily for students to be able to ask questions or get help on their assignments during 8 to 10 a.m., and 12:30 to 2 p.m. Each teacher will post these times on their schoology pages starting on April 6th. Also, you can contact all teachers and staff by their emails during this time as well. 

Below is our daily student schedule:
