Welcome to the Lee Public School District Web site. The Lee Public Schools are located in the Berkshire Hills of Western Massachusetts just minutes from the Massachusetts Turnpike and numerous world class tourist and cultural destinations. We educate students from the towns of Lee and Tyringham, and other neighboring communities through school choice and tuition agreements.

Our community has a history of supporting its public schools, as evidenced by our beautiful campus and our two school buildings. We are grateful to be a part of such a supportive community.

LPS Meal Delivery Information

In conjunction with the Town of Lee, the Lee Public Schools are actively working to keep everyone well during these challenging times associated with the COVID-19 virus. One particular way that we are striving to be helpful is in regard to meal availability, at least in the foreseeable future. Beginning Tuesday, March 24, we will be making weekly packages of meals available to residents in Lee and Lee PS students from Tyringham. These will consist of five days worth of breakfasts and lunches. In order to assist us in planning for this venture, it will be important for you to let us know if you would like to take advantage of this opportunity. At this time, we are planning to deliver these packages to residents so there will be no need for you to leave home in order to benefit from this service.

It is the Town’s intent to provide for those in need or otherwise grappling with food insecurity during this public health emergency. Town staff and volunteers will deliver any requested meals directly to your residence. Any resident in need of a meal should follow the instructions below:

Message from the Superintendent

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to the communities of Lee and Tyringham.  It has been a wonderful couple of weeks getting acclimated to the district.  I have spent time in classrooms, meeting with students and staff, and getting immersed in the activities that define our schools and communities.  Of note are the extraordinary students and staff.  Their commitment to excellence and success is readily apparent in the instructional spaces and in public, too!  The Lee Public Schools provide all students with access to a rigorous and challenging educational experience cultivated through the formation of meaningful relationships.

The next couple of months are riddled with activities.  Included among them is the administration of MCAS.  I encourage all families to remember a few things as testing rolls around.  Please encourage students to get a good night’s rest, to eat well-balanced meals, and to include some physical activity in their daily regimine.

The success of our schools is dependent on active and appropriate engagement by all stakeholders.  To that end, I encourage you to seek out ways to be involved in any number of ways, including: coaching, tutoring, volunteering, chaperoning, or joining our district as an employee.

To get updates on what’s happening around LPS and the education world, please consider following me on Twitter @LeeSchoolsSupt.

Thank you for welcoming me to Lee and do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

All the best,

Michael J. Richard
