Here are ways your LLHS keeps our families and supporters in the know about what's happening: 

E-mail Newsletter

During the school year, Lakeside e-mails and posts a weekly newsletter, usually Tuesday afternoons, called Warrior Weekly E-News, written with current Lakeside families in mind. It provides current information about events, opportunities and news for students and parents, including hotlinks to valuable info. Registered families are automatically subscribed using the e-mail address provided at enrollment. You can update this address or unsubscribe through the newsletter.
 
See past issues of E-news here. Or click on "Weekly E-News" at right to subscribe.
 
 

Lakeside on SwiftK12

 
We use this notification tool on the PowerSchool platform (see more info here) for school or activity cancellations or delays.
 
 

LL now has a smartphone app!

Lakeside has a smartphone app that we are strongly encouraging both students and families to download and set up for regular info from any team or group that students are involved with.
 
LL app QR code Go to the App store (iPhone) or Google Play (Android) and search for “Lakeside Lutheran High School” or scan the QR code here with your phone’s camera.
 
Check out this video for a walk-through of the app. Get all your LLHS news in one location: calendar, athletic and extra-curricular groups, another resource for school closings, links to social media, staff directory, handbook, lunch menus, and PowerSchool, Moodle, Google classroom, and Scrip.
 
Note: in order to maximize the usefulness of the Lakeside app, you should accept notifications when the app asks you during set up; otherwise, you’ll not know when coaches or other contacts are trying to make you aware of something.
 
Social connections
When your teen is involved, it's great for you to be as well. Here are various groups, teams and events that have their own web presence. See if they're for you!

Lakeside on Twitter

We tweet non-emergency content—from important reminders to celebrations of outstanding performances. 
 
Please Note: You do not need to have a Twitter account to receive our Tweets!
 
There are three ways to read Tweets from @LakesideLuthHS:
  1. 1. Look to the Twitter feed on the homepage under Social Hub Gallery. With this method, you must seek the Tweets; no notifications are sent to you.
  2. To receive @LakesideLuthHS Tweets as cell phone text messages without having your own Twitter account: "Fast Follow" by texting the words "follow LakesideLuthHS" (without quotation marks; be sure to include a space after the word "follow") to text recipient 40404. You will immediately receive a generic message from Twitter that you ignore; you will also then receive the most recent Lakeside Tweet. When these two Tweets come to your phone, you know you're signed up. All future Tweets will be sent to your cell phone as text messages. You can stop delivery anytime by texting "stop".
  3. If you already have your own Twitter account: Follow @LakesideLuthHS. Do you want LLHS Tweets to be pushed as a notification without getting every Tweet pushed as well? See instructions here on how to set @LakesideLuthHS as a push without needing to allow all.

Twitter's help page for fast follow commands is here

Lakeside in your congregation

The Federation Connection is a monthly publication e-mailed to each of the Lakeside Federation—plus several other—congregations. Churches then decide how to distribute the info to their members, usually in monthly newsletters, bulletins or websites. FedCon throws the spotlight on student news, upcoming month events and includes a message from the principal. While not mailable to individuals, an e-version of the pub can be subscribed to at <issuu.com/llhs>.

 

 

Cell phones and other phone numbers

It is very important for Lakeside to have your current phone number(s). You supply "emergency contact information" at registration, but if any changes take place during the school year, please notify the school immediately. "Update your info"  at the link on the blue menu above right.

Lakeside produces a variety of print publications. Some you may already receive in your mailbox as a member of an intended audience, but all are welcome to join the mailing list(s) upon request by calling or e-mailing your address info to info@llhs.org.
