A message from Dr. Ted Horrell:


Lakeland Friends and Supporters,


Due to the wet condition of the site and the possibility of additional rain this afternoon, we have decided to postpone today’s scheduled groundbreaking for Lakeland Middle Preparatory School. We would ideally like our visitors to have the opportunity to walk the site, enjoy the surroundings, and take an up-close look at the site work that has been completed thus far. The current conditions would not allow any of that to occur and would severely limit the available parking.


Please disregard the previously published “rain date” as we are going to look ahead and attempt identify a break in the weather in the next couple of weeks that will allow us to celebrate this milestone more appropriately. Please note that this postponement does not impact our construction schedule. Our school board will still meet today to vote on the construction contract for Lakeland Middle Preparatory School which will open for grades 5-8 in August of 2017.



Thanks for your continued support and involvement!
