We at Lakota West partner with our families to provide a strong home-to-school connection. Below are ways we stay connected to our school community and information about the various communications that families will receive throughout the year. 

Firebird News

Lakota West High School puts out a weekly newsletter (“Firebird News”) through School Messenger on Fridays. This newsletter shares important information about activities coming up, things that are going on at Lakota West, information from the Guidance Department, and information from the PTSO.

See below for information about our communications portal and how to manage your account.

    District Communications Portal

    At Lakota, transparent and timely communication is critically important. Using a mass notification system, we deliver important school and district news and announcements primarily via email, but oftentimes by phone and text message as well.

    Please reference the detailed tabs below to ensure you are receiving Lakota communications that are relevant to you as a parent/guardian, staff member or community member.

    All parent/guardian contact information updated in FinalForms and then displayed in your Home Access Center account is our primary source of email addresses and phone numbers used to communicate classroom, school and district news. Parents cannot update their contact information in any other portal. Staff are encouraged to update just their phone number via their accounts settings ParentSquare, as noted below.
