Lakota West School (main campus only) is part of a small group of Lakota schools piloting a new, more unified school-to-home communication tool called ParentSquare. Beginning Monday, April 22, ParentSquare will replace our current notification system for sending email, phone and text alerts to our families and staff.

No action will be required to continue receiving communications, but be on the lookout for an invite to log into your account via OneLogin to customize your communications experience and get the most out of ParentSquare.
