Dear South Lake Schools Community:


As part of our commitment to keeping our community informed, I am reaching out again today to share pertinent district information.  Please understand that our current situation regarding COVID-19 is very fluid, so information may change from one day to the next.  In fact, there may be situations where new information contradicts what was previously shared with our school community.


The following information is the most current: 


  • School Building Access – SLS school buildings are closed to the general public. We currently have limited employees in each building to provided essential services only.  Building principals are checking phone messages and emails daily. 
  • South Lake Schools Administration Office – Although district administrators and support staff are working on a rotating schedule remotely and on site, the office is closed to the general public.  District staff are also checking phone messages and email daily and can be reached at 586-435-1600. 
  • Enrichment Opportunities – As was shared yesterday, administrators and teachers are working on supplemental materials for students today, and we expect materials to be shared online ( by the end of the week. Please call 586-435-1600 to arrange a time to pick up a hard copy if online access is unavailable.    


Please continue to adhere to all published guidelines on the steps we all must take to help stop the spread of COVID-19, and check your email, our website (, and the district Facebook page ( regularly for the latest information.  If we continue to work together, our response to this crisis will be that much stronger.
