Letter from Dr. Amy Klinger to Lake Community

To the Lake Local Schools Community –

My team and I had the pleasure of observing the recent parent reunification exercise at Lake High School. From the first person we encountered to the last folks we talked to as we left, the staff was well-trained, highly engaged, and unfailingly professional. I was particularly impressed by the meticulous planning and thoughtful implementation of every element of the parent reunification process.

Allocating the time and personnel to “practice” reuniting parents with students might be seen by some as a waste of time and energy. As a school safety consultant and career educator, I can tell you that couldn’t be further from the truth. Bringing together parents and children efficiently and safely in the aftermath of a crisis event is a monumental task that many school districts don’t have the foresight or the leadership to plan for, let alone practice. It is invaluable to have dedicated professionals who don’t just talk vaguely about keeping students safe, but who walk the walk – and actually make it happen.

I only wish I could persuade other school districts across the nation to engage in school safety activities with the same conviction, vigor, and professionalism I have witnessed in my work with Lake Local Schools. Parents and community members should be proud of the dedication of the Lake Local Schools staff and know that students are safer as a result of their efforts.

Congratulations on a job well done!

Dr. Amy Klinger

Director of Programs

Message from the Superintendent:

Welcome to the website of the Lake Local School District.  As you go through this site or if you join us on campus for an event, we hope that you enjoy our facilities and are respectful of them as well.

We are proud of our students, staff, and the graduates we produce as well as the successes they enjoy. We have established a culture of success and our students expect to be excellent.

For our students who are interested in skilled trades, Penta Career Center offers a viable and mutually beneficial partnership.  For post-graduate work, Bowling Green State University, the University of Toledo, and Owens Community College are in close proximity.

Our board of education is very cost conscious in its decision-making and there is a constant effort to be good stewards of the taxpayers’ dollars.

I encourage you to navigate your way around our website and see what it is like to be a Flyer!  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to call me during normal school hours at 419-661-6677 or email me at jwitt@lakeschools.org.
