Remote Learning Tips and Tricks

Monday, November 23 Update. We're still sorting out a few issues with some apps still this week. One fix is to update the iPads to 14.2 and then follow the steps in the video on the next page to sort out Site Cross-Tracking. Two other troubleshooting steps we've found helpful are to go to speedtest.net and see what your download speed is and resetting your Network Settings. So for that you can go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. If you need help with your internet bills there is also a grant from the Mason County Promise available if you have a High School or college student that's a freshman in the house. The info is at the bottom of this news page.

Donate this holiday season

The holidays are upon us and the Ludington Area School District would like to ask for your support of our Holiday Help program. This district-wide program provides the opportunity for families identified by school staff to shop for their children's needs and wish list items.

Building counselors work together to select 100 different LASD families that could benefit from assistance for the holidays. These families are then invited to shop at Meijer on specific dates and times and items in their cart are paid for by an LASD staff person who will check them out.

Allowing parents and guardians the opportunity to select items for their own children ensures that children will be getting items they truly need and will enjoy.

We know that the world is certainly different than it was this time last year and we appreciate any and all donations. Your gift of $125 will support one family this holiday season.
