Message from the Principal

It is hard to believe that in two weeks, on Wednesday, August 18th, we will welcome all 1st-6th graders back into the building for the first day of school. The first day of school for Kindergarten is Thursday, August 19th.

ALL families must register their children for the 2021-2022 school year through the online registration process. Please click HERE to start this registration process. Families MUST complete the registration process so that their students can start school on the first day of school. Students whose families have not completed the registration process will NOT be assigned a classroom teacher.

Families will have the opportunity to meet the teacher on Tuesday, August 17th at 8:30am (student last names A-M) or 9:00am (student last names O-Z).

Lake Louise has been under construction all summer with the big focus being an update of the heating and cooling system. The District as well as the custodial team have been monitoring the project every step of the way. We are excited to have the project completed in August.

Lastly, Lake Louise has many resources for students and families in need: food, clothing, coats, shoes, school supplies, and much more. If your family needs any of these resources please don't hesitate to reach out to the school 847-963-5600.

If you have any questions about this or any other issue please send an email to the principal She is happy to engage any family in conversations about important issues.

Parent Portal opens August 5th

On August 5th parents will be able to view their child's teacher and room number on the Parent Portal. Parents will not receive anything in the mail regarding their student's teacher. Families need to look at the Parent Portal to find information about their student's teacher.

Meet the Teacher

We are so excited for our annual Meet the Teacher event that will be held on Tuesday, August 17th! Only families that have completed the online registration process will have a teacher assignment for their student.

  • Please check the Parent Portal before arriving for your child's teacher and room number.
  • 8:30am students with last names A-M
  • 9:00am students with last names N-Z
The event ends promptly at 9:30am so please do your best to arrive on time.

School supplies

We invite families to purchase school supplies for their students using the lists provided for each grade level. If a family needs assistance in obtaining school supplies please let the teacher know on the first day of school. At Lake Louise we have many school supplies and are happy to give them to students who need them.

Registration for 21-22 school year

Online student registration for the 2021-22 school year is open. If you have not already started this process for your student(s), please visit our registration page to start this process.

  1. Register your child. Registration is the first step in getting ready for the upcoming school year. After registering online, parents will need to go in person to your child's school and provide:

  1. Health Forms. Required health, immunization, dental, and eye exams for students entering preschool, kindergarten, sixth-grade, and those who are new to the district.

  2. Prove Residency. If you have a student that is starting Kindergarten, entering 4th grade, or entering 7th grade, you are required to prove residency in District 15. Our residency webpage outlines the documents you will need to provide to prove your residency.

  1. Pay student fees. Our student fee webpage outlines the District’s student fee structure and the three ways fees can be paid.

All of the above steps of the enrollment process must be completed prior to the start of the school year. Students of families that, when required, do not prove residency, will not be able to attend class in a District 15 until the family’s residency is verified.
