LASD Water Testing Results

Given recent concerns regarding drinking water safety, we made the decision to test our City drinking water throughout the school district. The City is responsible for testing the water they provide to the community. We are required to test our pool water and drinking water coming from wells.

Ludington Area School District tested 51 taps, and two of the 51 exceeded the threshold for parts per million of lead. Both taps testing over the threshold were taken out of service, and replaced with lead-free fixtures.  

Meanwhile, we continue to replace old water fountains with modern fountains which allow the public to fill water bottles.  We have at least one of these stations in each of our school buildings, and they have already saved nearly 100,000 water bottles from going to landfills.

School Board Recognition Month

​Dear Oriole Family:

January is School Board Recognition Month - a time to salute the work of our volunteer school board members and to celebrate public education! As citizen leaders, individual school board members face complex and demanding challenges, as they work to ensure the best possible education for the children of the communities with which they serve. The role of a school board member is often a thankless task. Ludington’s school board members have an extraordinary dedication to our community’s schools, and it is my hope that you will recognize the vital contributions of these men and women, and the critical role that they play in the education of our children.
