Mrs. Smith’s Snapchat…

Hello Lakeside Families,


Welcome, 2021! I hope that you had a safe and enjoyable holiday break! While there will be ongoing disruption and recovery due to the pandemic, we have had a great first week back with students and look forward to soon being able to welcome some students back in person.


Today at 3:01 PM was the last day to make learning option changes for the 2nd semester. Second-semester schedules will start on January 19, 2021. Unfortunately, no requests received after this time will be approved.


As we prepare for receiving students back to in-person instruction and transitioning students to 100% virtual, you may see changes appear in your ParentVue (Synergy) and your student’s Canvas account. Some possible changes might be seeing a new teacher’s name appear on your student’s schedule or a new classroom dashboard tile in Canvas. Do not be alarmed by these changes. Once your student begins their new schedule on January 19th, you will see their accurate placement and correct teacher connections with Canvas and digital curriculum.


Looking forward to an outstanding new semester and 2021! As always, I thank you for your continued support of Lakeside Elementary! Take care, be safe, and have a great weekend!



Sincerely,

Mrs. Smith

Student Devices

We are excited to provide students with technology to enhance their learning experiences in the MSD of Warren Township. Each student K-4 is assigned an iPad for virtual and in-person classroom use. Devices will be kept at school and charged in a classroom cart. Students are responsible for the proper care and use of their device.


Each device is covered by a district-sponsored insurance program for damage. This keeps charges for both intentional and accidental damages low. Both purposeful and accidental damage will be charged at a reduced rate.

1st-$5

2nd-$25

3rd-$50

CAR RIDERS/DAYCARE Student Drop-off/Pick-up Procedures

We ask that our parents follow these guidelines to ensure that every student has a safe arrival and dismissal:


All students will be required to be dropped off and picked up through the car rider line to maintain safety standards. Parking at the front and East end of the building and walking children to and from the entrances will not be allowed. We want to prevent children and adults walking through the path of cars or buses on the property at any time.


Staff members will be present outside beginning at 7:55 a.m. each morning for student drop-off. Please do not release your children until a staff member signals the beginning of our process. Students will not be counted tardy until 8:05 a.m. Our afternoon pick-up procedures will begin at 3:00 p.m. If you are in a hurry, you are encouraged to be at or near the front of the line. We will implement our dismissal procedures as quickly and safely as possible for all.


Thank you very much for your support with helping ensure Lakeside maintains safety as our priority during our student entrance and dismissal each day!


DON’T FORGET TO PICK UP YOUR CAR RIDER SIGN IN THE FRONT OFFICE!!

SCHOOL DISTRICT PUBLICATIONS/NEWS MEDIA USE

The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or your child's school. This may include your child's photo, your child's name or your child's work in district publications, newsletters, on school district websites, and in electronic/social media or in staff training videos. We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, television, and radio) about your child's achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/political purposes. However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognitions if you notify your child's school office in writing that you do not want this type of information released.

On Thursday, January 21, 2021 let's raise money for Lakeside while sharing a meal with the ones we love.
