In the Spotlight

Website Makeover Underway
One highlight of many technology upgrades taking place throughout the district

Please pardon the temporary disruptions that may occur in locating your favorite places on our website. We are undergoing a template 'facelift,' which we believe will bring you better access to your most valued information. 
One area you will notice immediately, is the 'global icons' which are directly above this 'In the Spotlight' feature. These icons will give you one-click access to the areas of our website that are most frequently visited, as well as to our social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook. Another great feature is that we have switched our calendar option to Google calendars, which means you will be able to subscribe to your child's school calendar and overlay it with your own calendar if you are a Google user. 
Functionality and features will be improved and built upon as the days progress. Please be patient as we do our best to update the site as quickly and seamlessly as possible. Stop by Twitter or Facebook and let us know what you think!


Dear Lancaster School Community:

The Lancaster Central School District community is mourning the loss of one of our students from a tragic accident. Our hearts go out to the family, friends, and teachers of our student. Our close-knit community will get through this by supporting one another.


On behalf of the board of education, our entire school district, myself and my family, I would like to express our sincere condolences to all those affected by this loss. As a parent, there is no greater loss than the loss of a child. As a superintendent, the scale of loss to our school community is devastating.


I would like to assure everyone in our community that the well-being of our children and our staff is, and always has been, paramount in our school district. Our professional counseling and support staff, trained in crisis response and grief counseling, are prepared and will be on hand first thing Monday morning and throughout the coming days, to provide comfort and assistance to all who need it.

In the days ahead, there will undoubtedly be difficult moments for all of us to endure in the wake of this tragedy. While everyone will be responding to the situation in different ways, I am confident in our professional and support staff and their ability to meet the needs of individuals as they arise. If you think your child may need extra support at any time, please call your child's principal so we can help.




Michael J. Vallely, Ph.D.

Superintendent of Schools
