Lake's First Delayed Start is Oct. 4, 2017, and a Tip for Local Restaurant Owners
Read on for information regarding upcoming delayed start dates for Lake Local Schools. The first districtwide delayed start date is Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017.

Lake parents with children in grades K-12 should note that the district has scheduled these delayed starts to the school day to allow for professional development training for staff.

The four delayed start dates are:  Wednesday, Oct. 4, 2017; Wednesday, Nov. 1, 2017; Wednesday, Feb. 7, 2018; and Wednesday, March 7, 2018.

Parents with students at both Hartville and Uniontown Elementary can plan for all buses to pick students up two hours after the normal pick up time. School will begin at 10:45 a.m., two hours later on these days, but will end at the normal time of 3:15 p.m.

At Lake Elementary, students will be dismissed from their buses at 10:35 a.m., and will be tardy as of 10:45 a.m. Hartville/Lake Elementary students that are dropped off by parents will enter the school using Door 7, while all bus riders will enter the building from the front of the school as usual.  Their school day will also end at the standard dismissal time of 3:15 p.m.

At Lake Middle School, with the two-hour delay schedule our doors will open to students at 9:15 a.m. Students will be marked tardy as of 9:25 a.m. The school day will end at our usual time of 2:33 p.m., and students will use the same entrances and drop off locations as normal.

At Lake High School, students will have two- hour delayed starts the first Wednesday of each month, with the exception of January, 2018.  Buses will run at their usual times, but classes will not begin until 9:29 a.m.; classes will end at the normal time of 2:33 p.m. Students should use the same doors to enter the school that they would normally use, and parking will remain the same. Lake Career Tech students who go to Hoover, GlenOak, and Jackson High Schools for programs will do so, as normal.

The entire list of delayed start dates for Lake High School students follows:

Business Opportunity for Local Restaurants

The word in the halls of Lake High School is that our students like to go out for breakfast on these late start dates.  What better, hungrier customers can you possibly find than high school students, first thing in the morning, ready for a good breakfast?  If you serve full breakfasts, or sell breakfast-related items, you might consider offering "Student Specials" on our late start dates.  The students will come; be fully staffed and ready to serve on these dates!
