LILA will add a make-up day on Monday, March 31. Teachers may offer online learning packets, too, to help students stay on track despite the many school cancellations due to cold weather in January.
Lakes International Language Academy is its own school district (#4116) and can set its own calendar. Normally LILA closely follows the Forest Lake Area School District #831 calendar, primarily for busing. Last week, however, District #831 announced it would add make-up days on February 17 and March 31. Because LILA had already confirmed Kindergarten Round-Up on February 17 for some 150 participants, LILA’s administration recommended to maintain the original plan for February and adopt the change for March. The LILA School Board voted to accept the recommendations at its monthly meeting on Tuesday, February 11.
