Welcome to Lanesboro Public Schools!
In addition to our K-12 programming, the school houses a year round daycare facility for children six weeks old through school age. When this program was started in 1988, it was the first of its kind in a school district in Minnesota. Your children can literally start their Lanesboro Public School journey as an infant in our daycare and walk across the stage as an LPS graduate steps from the daycare center 18 years later. This allows your children to avoid those difficult transition years which oftentimes hinder the educational process for students in other districts.
Since the birth of our district over 100 years ago, we have never had a referendum vote by our public fail. The most recent vote was on November 6th, 2018 for an $8,350,000 addition/remodel and is nearing completion. The scope of the project is wide and addresses a multitude of needs from classrooms to the kitchen. The Secondary School building has been remodeled to improve energy efficiency, modernize teaching tools, and improve the design. Nearly every square inch of the building has been updated, including a brand new Chemistry Lab, gymnasium, and Daycare Center. We are also installing a 130,000 kW solar panel system on our school this year that will help offset electrical costs in the years to come.
