Thank you to our generous community

This was education at Lakeside this past year, and thanks to the hard work, creativity, flexibility, and dedication of Lakeside faculty and staff, our students received an outstanding education in the middle of the pandemic. Students and parents and guardians were enormously flexible and also did their absolute best to find the positive in often challenging circumstances. We can all be proud of the manner in which the Lakeside School community responded to the everchanging exigencies of the pandemic and continued to offer our students a great education. And we could not have continued on without the support of all of you!

To bring our students back to campus we needed to rent eight portable classrooms, test every returning student and employee every week, hire 20 additional teacher’s assistants to be in classrooms with students, buy cameras for every classroom so some students could attend class remotely while others returned in person, put up a dozen tents, and buy countless wipes, cleaning supplies, and signs! Only with all of this could in-person school take place for our students. Your generosity also made possible a weeklong training for more than 130 faculty and staff in how to teach most effectively online, a training that meant we were offering the best possible online classes to our students. So, on behalf of our students: Thank you, everyone! Your donation to the school meant our teachers and students had the resources they needed to teach and learn well in very challenging circumstances. And in 2021-2022, all of the students will be on campus, every day, learning in person and building community with one another! Thank you for seeing us through this challenging period! Cordially,

Bernie Noe P’07 ’09 Head of School

Outdoor trips resumed with new modifications and protocols to keep students safe, made possible by support from our generous community.
