Making the decision to send your teen to Lakeside is a serious commitment of time and money, and no one understands that better than those who help keep it all working for the teachers and students.
Here is a listing of links other parents have found helpful, in hopes that it makes the business end of your child's Lakeside education more efficient and convenient.
The TADS website
is where you log in to update your family demographic info, keep track of your tuition payments, get a tax report, register for the next school year, apply for financial aid, and more.
Student lunches are $3.25 per day. A carton of milk is 35 cents.
Students who wish to purchase hot lunch or a milk must present their student IDs in the lunch line, and the card is swiped to deduct the purchase from the students' accounts. Students may not use other students' IDs (even applies to siblings, due to federal lunch reporting requirements).
To add funds to your cafeteria account(s) online:
Select the green “School” tab near the top of the screen.
Select the blue “Cafeteria” link below the “Home” tab.
Select the “Make Cafeteria Payment” button to the right of the screen.
Complete all fields making sure to scroll to the bottom of the form.
Click the “Submit” button.
If you need log in credentials or have questions about Cornerstone, please contact Mr. Garrison. To see what's for lunch, look here
During the school year, funds can also be added to your lunch account by placing a check or cash in the provided dropbox located in between the serving windows in the cafeteria. Please note: Any payments made in this way must be placed in an envelope and clearly labeled with the students name and the amount enclosed. All payments must be placed in the dropbox before period 3 or they will not be recorded till the next day. Payments will not be accepted in the lunch line.
Free and Reduced Lunches
LLHS participates in this program, and your family can at any time during the year, apply as your needs may require. Reduced lunch price is 40 cents per lunch. Funds are taken out of the lunch accounts described above.
Below you'll find the application and the instructions for applying. See the USDA Nondiscrimination statement at the bottom of this page. Direct any questions to Mr. Todd Grundman.
After graduation, your student may require additional transcripts for college or employment applications. Please direct your student here
Wisconsin State Tax Deduction for K-12 Tuition
(Please note that in the following, the term “private school” includes Lakeside as well as our Lutheran grade schools.)
Families may use this deduction if they claim a pupil who is enrolled in kindergarten or grades one through twelve in a private school as a dependent for federal income tax purposes on his or her tax return. It is important to note that this is not a tax credit, but a deduction (see Jagler letter below). Any person who pays taxes in Wisconsin and pays private school tuition for dependents is eligible to receive the deduction by filing Schedule PS with their Wisconsin tax return. Please note this is a tax deduction and not a credit. Depending on your income and tax bracket, the tax deduction could save you up to 7% of the tuition paid. Please consult your tax advisor for more details. School staff is not allowed to give you tax advice. The information in this memo is for general guidance only and does not consist of legal or tax advice of any kind.
Families can print their tuition receipt by going to the "Billing" Tab in their TADS
account. Look for the "Household Paid Tuition Tax Report" on the right side of the screen.
The LLHS Federal Employer Identification Number (EIN) is needed to submit your form. EIN: 39-0991964
Many families find our Scrip program helpful in providing toward tuition costs. If you would like to learn more about this program or enroll, click here
We expect the ability to make other needed payments online in the future. Some of these payments may include car registration, tardy/detention fines, library fines, or certain fees that arise. Please stay tuned.
