Making the decision to send your teen to Lakeside Lutheran 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 LLHS education more efficient and convenient.
Each spring/summer, enrolled new families receive an email (sent to the address families provide as "primary" when they enroll) that has information and a personalized link that allows them to set up a Smart Tuition account.
The wellness committee meets and works on projects to help make our school healthier. You do not need any special training to be on the committee, just an interest in keeping our school healthy! Feel free to attend or send comments/suggestions to email@example.com.
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).
In 2017-18 we have moved to K12PaymentCenter for lunch accounts. Registration gives you access to your student’s lunchroom balance and meal history, and offers e-mail notification when the account balance drops below a limit you have set. (This is optional; if your balance falls below 3.75, PowerSchool will automatically send you a notification. You may set a higher minimum balance through K12PaymentCenter.) It includes all the students in your family who attend school LLHS, and you have the option of transferring money among your student accounts if you have more than one teen at LLHS.
If you already have an account through your grade school, simply log in with your current username and password. To register for a new account, you will need your student’s ID#. This number can be found on the PowerSchool parent portal next to your student’s name at the top of the page. Note: In many cases, this is different from the Lunch ID# found on the student ID card.
make a payment via bank account or credit card (you can avoid the $1.95 convenience fee by sending in a payment with your teen**).
divide your payment among multiple students

If you have questions about your K12PaymentCenter account, please contact Mrs. Retzlaff. To see what's for lunch, look here.
**During the school year, funds can also be added to your lunch account without incurring the convenience fee by placing a check or cash in the provided dropbox located on the east wall of the cafeteria (by the doors). Your balance online will reflect payments made in this way when they are entered by LL personnel. Please note: Any payments made in this way must be placed in an envelope and clearly labeled with the student's 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.
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.
As part of an upgrade to our lunch program software, you are now able to apply for free and reduced lunch online at www.LunchApplication.com (Click "Apply Now" ) See the PDF below for a bit more explanation.

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 SmartTuition account. Look for the "Household Paid Tuition Tax Report" on the right side of the screen.
