Kindergarten and sixth grade both have state required vaccinations that must be given before they can start school.

If you are unsure if your child has his or her required vaccinations, you can reach out to the LCIS school nurse or your child’s primary care provider.

The United States Department of Agriculture has approved all schools to offer free breakfast and lunch to all students regardless of income.

We plan to offer à la carte items in the future that will not be covered under the USDA free meal plan. Prior to that time, we will inform parents on how they can add money to their child’s account.

We still encourage families to complete the free and reduced meal application as it is beneficial for families and the school in the future.

PowerSchool Questions

The PowerSchool application for LCIS is completely separate from any other school system and thus it is not possible to link PowerSchool accounts from other school systems. You will need to log into the LCIS PowerSchool separately. For the best experience, we recommend logging in from a desktop computer.

The district code for LCIS PowerSchool is MBBD.

Please contact the LCIS Principal, Joanne Simcox, at

COVID Questions

Masks are required for students in school and on buses for the time being. We will continue to monitor changes in state and federal guidance and will adjust our policies accordingly.

As a public school, LCIS requires students to have all state required vaccines. At this time, the COVID vaccine is not required.

If your child has a medical or religious vaccine exemption, you need to complete this form and then submit it to LCIS school nurse.
