E-Learning, Continuous Learning Plan, Re-Entry Plan, COVID-19
By next week, all students in all buildings should have received their public library cards from the Lake County Public Library. These cards will allow students access to all digital materials from the public library. They can download books, movies and magazines on to their devices and never be without something to read!
There are no fees associated with these cards.  If students had accrued fees in the past, they will not be excluded from borrowing when using these cards. 
Reading is crucial for a student’s success. Let's build stronger readers and learners through the public library system, as well as the libraries at our schools!





COVID-19 Information

Lake Ridge New Tech Schools is working closely with local and state agencies to manage the impact of COVID-19 to our schools. We've compiled updates and information for families, including food distribution and mental health services. For the latest information on COVID-19, visit the CDC.
Thank you to everyone who came out for our EL Bingo Night last week! About 140 were in attendance, with 51 of our Lake Ridge families represented! 

More than 30 prizes were awarded, including popular language-based games, several gift cards from generous community and alumni donors, two $50 gift cards, and a grand prize of a health and wellness gift basket donated by MSI Express!

Bingo numbers were called by the newest member of our English Learners education team, Victoria Pliego-Poza. All families also received information regarding online resources to support learning throughout our upcoming summer recess.

Dear Families,

As we prepare for the start of the 2022-23 school year, one of our concerns is the use of vaping devices among students. We know that this is an issue many of our families are grappling with, as well. 

In an effort to prevent vaping, students will no longer be allowed to wear hooded sweatshirts in our buildings, effective this fall. We have made this decision based on the prevalence of “vaping hoodies,” which allow individuals to secretly use vaping devices.

Please note that students will be able to wear other types of sweatshirts and unhooded jackets, as long as they meet our dress code standards. 

We also encourage our parents and guardians to continue to speak with their children about the dangers of vaping. We still know very little about these devices and their long-term health implications. More information and resources for families is available at

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your attention to this important update.
