Patriot Perspective: Pequot Lakes School District offers two after-school activity buses

This after-school activity bus is a free service for students.

We are part of The Trust Project.

PEQUOT LAKES — The more our students are connected to each other and involved in after-school activities, the better our community will be.

The Pequot Lakes School District is proud of the wide range of activities, athletics, arts and after-school programming our students can access. Transportation to these activities can sometimes be a challenge or barrier for some families; therefore, the Pequot Lakes School District has started an after-school activities bus to support students and families.

District's Health & Wellness Committee works with staff to improve area health.
Bingo, sledding, night sky hikes and more entertained elementary students this winter.
