2020 Oasis Yearbook earns two awards  

Shout out to the SLPHS Yearbook staff for earning two awards for the 2020 Oasis Yearbook. It earned the first-place award from the American Scholastic Press Association for the 2020 Oasis Yearbook - "Begin... Again." The second is a Distinguished Honorable Mention in Balfour's national "Yearbook, Yearbook," which honors outstanding books each year through their company. 

The 2020 yearbook staff was made up of in-class and club members who were focused on raising the bar and took past feedback from the last two years to improve the quality of the 2020 book. Through challenges both in personal lives and through a pandemic, the group put out the best book they possibly could, and their hard work paid off! 

Community Education Department

Driver's Education

Spring Lake Park Schools Community Education offers teen driver’s education in cooperation with Safeway Driving School. Safeway Driving School has been graduating teen drivers in the Twin Cities area for over 40 years and their instructors are licensed by the Minnesota Department of Public Safety.   

The State of Minnesota requires that driver’s education distance learning be conducted in a face-to-face platform, which requires that students have a video camera and audio capabilities on their devices. Safeway has chosen a secure Zoom platform to conduct the class.  Safeway’s only focus is creating safe, responsible teen drivers. Classroom and behind-the-wheel lessons emphasize defensive driving techniques tailored for the inexperienced teen driver while targeting to influence the invincible teen attitude.   

Full Course Fee of $370 is broken into three payments: 

$220 due at registration time, $150 ($75 on the first lesson and $75 on the second lesson); checks made payable to Safeway Driving School or call Safeway before behind-the-wheel to pay by credit card   

The next class sessions are: 

  • June 14-25
  • July 12-21
  • August 2-13

One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Fall Play - ALMOST MAINE - Directed by: Kevin Dutcher 
Welcome to Almost, Maine, a place that’s so far north, it’s almost not in the United States. It’s almost in Canada. And it’s not quite a town, because its residents never got around to getting organized. So, it almost doesn’t exist. One cold, clear, winter night, as the northern lights hover in the star-filled sky above, the residents of Almost, Maine, find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and hilarious ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. But the bruises heal, and the hearts mend—almost—in this delightful midwinter night’s dream.

Free & Reduced Price Meals

**A new application must be completed every year to continue meal benefits.

  • Students who qualify for free or reduced meals by submitting a new application each school year will receive meals at no charge. We follow strict guidelines to protect a student's confidentiality. All kindergarten students are eligible for a free breakfast, paid for by the State of Minnesota.
     
  • Many of our school district families take advantage of this program offering free or reduced prices for school meals and activity fees. Some families qualify for this program because their household income has always or generally been below a given level. Others have taken advantage of this program because their household income is temporarily below a given level.
     
  • Your student's 2017-2018 Free or Reduced eligibility status will remain in effect until October 23, 2018 then will automatically change to full pay status for the 2018-2019 school year! BE SURE TO REAPPLY!
