Dear Lakeside Community,
Weather and road conditions have been the hot discussion topic at Lakeside and in the community. The impact to our families and staff has been stressful, to say the least. A big thank-you to Lakeside staff for their perseverance in departing from their homes in the wee hours of the morning to tackle Hwy 17 or the mountain back roads to make it to school on time.
Working in conjunction with Superintendent Corey Kidwell, I have been in contact with both Santa Clara County and Santa Cruz County supervisors to expedite road repair to help lessen the impact of school closures due to recent storms. This past Wednesday Corey and I met with Jon Gundry, Santa Clara County Superintendent, to assist us with waiver requests to avoid extending the school year due to the school closure last week and potential future weather related closures. Mr. Gundry is also contacting local government officials to advocate making our roads a priority on their repair lists so students have access to school.
