Morning Playground

A reminder that the playground is closed before school so our Flyers Club has full access. Students are not allowed on the playground at this time. We have a considerable amount of students out there in the morning. Thank you for your cooperation.

Library News

We are currently short missing 479 books in our Dressel Library. We need your help to get all of our books back so our future students have access to such great titles! Check under the bed, in the family room, or even in the basement for these books. They will have a Dressel barcode on the back.

We appreciate your help!

Dressel Student Leaders

On Wednesday the Environmental Team walked Dressel's grounds to pick up trash. They will be adding this practice to some of their meetings going forward.

Bike Riders and Lost & Found

As the weather has warmed up, we've noticed an increase in bike riders to Dressel. We strongly encourage all students to wear helmets to school. We would also like families to complete this form so we have a record of how your student is getting home (only for families that didn't complete it at the beginning of the year).

Also, as the year wraps up, all items in the Lost & Found will be donated at the end of the day on Friday, May 19th.

Intruder Drill Notification

Dear Dressel Parents/Guardians,

We will be conducting an intruder drill on Thursday, May 18th. Ensuring that we are prepared in all situations is the best way to keep our students safe. Although this type of event is extremely uncommon, we believe it is important to practice our response plan together, the same way we prepare for a tornado, earthquake or fire incident.

Our staff members have been trained in the option-based program to respond to dangerous intruders. During a traditional intruder drill, teachers and students have two options to respond to a threat in the school:

● Use a safe route to evacuate the building

● Go into lockdown, which means locking classroom doors, turning off lights, barricading the door, and remaining out of sight

During the exercise, teachers and students participate in a class discussion to review potential scenarios and talk about how they would respond, including the options listed above.

These drills are not designed to scare students; rather, our goal is to help them prepare and feel safe at school under any circumstance. Lindbergh Schools is committed to keeping students safe and we believe this training will greatly enhance our level of emergency preparedness.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.


Dr. Patrick Schoenekase

District News

2024-25 School Calendar Survey

Families and students, your feedback is important to us as we begin thinking about the 2024-25 school year calendar. In August, the district Calendar Committee will meet to begin planning, and your input will provide valuable perspective about family needs. Please click the link below to share your thoughts with us.

Student Board Advisory Committee Opportunity

This week, students in grades 3-7 learned about a new opportunity beginning next year to share feedback with the Board of Education on issues that are important to students. Lindbergh Schools Board of Education Student Representative Adam Spree is forming student advisory groups for the 2023-24 school year. These groups will provide an opportunity for students from all backgrounds and schools to share their perspective on the issues that affect them the most. Students currently in grades 3-7 can fill out the form linked below if they are interested in being considered for this opportunity.

Thank a Staff Member!

Celebrate the end of the school year by saying thank you to your favorite teacher or staff member. Make a donation of $10 and the Lindbergh Schools Foundation will deliver a beautiful flower and personalized card to the Lindbergh staff member of your choice. Donations for flower deliveries can be made through this link and will be open through May 19 (or until we sell out).

New Student Information System Launching Soon

We are excited to announce the launch of a new student information system, Infinite Campus, which will replace Tyler SIS beginning in the 2023-24 school year. With Infinite Campus, you will be able to check your student’s grades, attendance records, and other important information from your phone, tablet, or computer. You will also be able to communicate with your student’s teachers and stay up-to-date on assignments and events.

While parents will continue to have access to the SIS Portal for the remainder of this school year, Annual Online Verification for the 2023-24 school year will begin in May, using Infinite Campus. Please look for more information coming soon.

Lindbergh staff have been training regularly to ensure a smooth transition for district families. In fact, our new kindergarten families used Infinite Campus for new student registration this Spring, and their feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. We are confident that Infinite Campus will be a great improvement for Lindbergh students and families throughout the school year, and we cannot wait to show you all the great features it has to offer!

Be on the lookout soon for login information and helpful tips!
