In the aftermath of Hurricane Beryl across our area, Lamar CISD is canceling all summer school classes, programs, extracurricular activities, and practices scheduled for Wednesday, July 10 and Thursday, July 11. All locations will remain closed to students and staff on Wednesday, July 10, and Thursday, July 11. This closure will allow our maintenance teams to work efficiently and without interruptions, ensuring our schools are safe. We will welcome all staff and students on Monday, July 15.

Don't forget about all the resources available in Classlink such as MackinVia, World Book, Typing Club, Learn360, Scratch, and so much more! Remember to keep reading and  log your minutes into Beanstack. There are many amazing reading opportunities in the websites below. If I can be of any assistance, please contact me at [email protected].

Sincerely,
Mrs. Michalec
