January 2024

Dear Lackawanna Trail Community,

Happy New Year!  We have so much to look forward to in 2024 at Lackawanna Trail.

On Monday January 8th, Director of Curriculum and Federal Programs, Mrs. Shannon Kuchak, presented a Five Year Academic Overview.  The overview of this presentation can be viewed on the Curriculum Page at www.ltsd.org/curriculum/ .  We are proud to have shared this encouraging news about our academic outlook and progress toward the objectives of our Comprehensive Plan.

Flexible Instruction Days (FID) will be incorporated into our schedule this school year.  Dr. Murphy and Mr. Kearney have provided details for parents and students and will oversee these days when incorporated.   Flexible Instruction Days are different from the Virtual Instruction Days used over past years in that there are no live virtual classes.  Flexible Instruction Days will begin with a synchronous virtual check in to a homeroom or first class of the day, then students will work asynchronously on assignments left in their Google Classrooms for a few hours without direct instruction.  Teachers will be available through scheduled virtual office hours posted by the principals.   Prior to using Flexible Instruction Days, I will begin with a few traditional snow days. If and when this happens is up to mother nature.  This is the first year Lackawanna Trail will utilize FIDs, and I appreciate everyone’s patience as we roll this out.

The construction of our Wellness Center at the jr.-sr. high school is on schedule as we anticipate a grand opening this summer.  For those of you interested in making a donation toward furnishing the Wellness Center with fitness equipment please click on the link at the bottom of this page.

Sincerely,

Matthew Rakauskas

Lackawanna Trail Community,

The Lackawanna Trail School District will be conducting School Climate Surveys over the next two weeks. Below are separate links with corresponding surveys for parents and community members. Please be sure to complete the survey that most closely aligns with your role as a parent, or community member.

Thank you for partnering with our district on this important initiative. The surveys are fairly short but the results will be used to inform our work making the district the best it can be.
