Morning Supervision & Door Openings
Good morning parents and guardians,
Just a reminder that Lakeland Ridge does not have any supervision available for students before 8:15am and doors do not open until 8:20am. In severe weather (heavy rain, -22 degrees, etc.) we will open the doors to the school at 8:15am.
We appreciate your efforts in ensuring students do not arrive before 8:15am.
To access important information at Lakeland Ridge, please regularly check our school website, join our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter and sign up for email synervoices.

If you haven’t received a letter from Student Transportation yet, and would like to inquire about busing for your child, contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151.

Families are invoiced for school fees at the beginning of every school year. Fees are due within 30-days of the invoice date. The simplest, and most convenient, way to pay schools fees is using ACORN by logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal. If circumstances exist where you are unable to pay your students fees you can apply to have fees waived by submitting an Application for a Waiver of Fees.
