A Message from the Principal
Back in Black…
…Or Eagle RED! For those not familiar with Marvel, Tony Stark gains his superhero powers by overcoming an injury and he comes back stronger than ever… as Iron Man. This Back in Black song permeates the film. The amazing thing about this story is not Iron Man’s recovery and strength but rather, his amazing team who is designing and innovating his suit, defending the universe with him, supporting each other and working together as a team. That’s YOU, the wonderful Everett staff, students and the district office with all their support. I wouldn’t be feeling better so quickly if it weren’t for all of you. I was overwhelmed with the messages checking on me and filled with genuine care.
Thank you, Mrs. Ford-Halverson for capturing our superhero day at Everett.

I would love to step into the shoes of your children for a day and really see what the school looks like from their perspective.

Electric-Powered Scooter Safety Tips
With school back in session, there has been an increase in electric-powered scooters around Lake Forest. While e-scooters are a fun way to travel, they can be dangerous. The Lake Forest Police Department has a few reminders for parents, guardians, and students about how to ride an e-scooter safely:
Wear a helmet.
Test the brakes. Make sure you know how to use the brakes and how long it takes to stop the e-scooter so you’re prepared for an emergency stop.
Alert others and be seen. E-scooters are small, quick, and silent, making it difficult for others to spot you, especially in parking lots and structures. Expect vehicles and pedestrians to not see you; slow down, and plan ahead of time.
Ride solo. Only one person per e-scooter; additional riders can increase the risk and severity of collisions.
Find more safety tips from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.
