Wednesday Schedule Change Starts April 7!
After spring break, starting April 7, school will end for grades K5 through 6 at 12:15 EVERY WEDNESDAY!
The K4 schedule will stay the SAME. However, there will be NO K4 on Wednesday, April 14, and Wednesday, May 12.
This change will allow in-person and remote teachers to meet and work with each other and with specialist teachers to best meet all student needs during the remainder of this unusual year.
STUDENTS CAN STILL PICK UP THEIR SCHOOL LUNCH TO BRING HOME ON WEDNESDAYS.
Multilingual Learner (ML) Support Schedules
ML Support for students who receive it now takes place during the school day. There are no after school or virtual meetings on the computer for in-person students.
Remote students who learn from home and receive ML support do have meetings with Ms. Conigliaro or Ms. Svitak. Links can be found in students' Seesaw or Google Classrooms. You should have received an email from Ms. Conigliaro with your child's remote meeting schedule. Please let me know if you have questions or if your child does not have their schedule.
Some parents have asked about the Multilingual Leaner After-School Homework Program. This program is not happening this school year due to COVID. I do hope to bring it back next year, so stay tuned!

As always, please contact Ms. Conigliaro with your questions.
Happy holidays, Chag Sameach, and Happy Easter to those celebrating in these coming weeks!
With the Passover and Easter holidays coming up, I wish everyone happy and safe celebrations. Please feel free to share any photos of your celebration or your table with your Lake Bluff family. We have a global community here at Lake Bluff, and students love sharing their traditions and learning about those of others.
