Happy New Year and Return to Hybrid from Kevin Dorken and Erik Friedman

Happy New Year!

We hope you enjoyed lots of quality time with your family, as well as continued health, over the past several weeks.

We look forward with anticipation and optimism to our return to in-person, Hybrid school schedules on Tuesday, January 19th. It will be wonderful to welcome our students back to school and reconnect them with their teachers and peers. For our return to be as safe and smooth as possible, please revisit your daily routine for the at-home, self-assessment now. Do you recall how to access the self-assessment form online? Do you have your thermometer ready to go? (If you need assistance obtaining a thermometer, we have a supply at school - please contact us!). For a student to have a prompt and uninterrupted start to their day at school, these self-assessments must be done before the child comes to school. We will not be able to allow a student to proceed to their homeroom class without this health and safety step being completed.

For additional helpful information about self-assessments and other health and safety protocols, Hybrid schedule hours, attendance and more, please see this section of the District 34 website.

It takes the commitment of our entire community to successfully navigate the challenges that the pandemic continues to present. Please stay committed, every day, to these cooperative efforts, and we will continue to enjoy a healthy school environment. Thank you!

If you ever have questions or need our assistance, please contact the Lyon or Pleasant Ridge office. Here’s to many good things ahead in 2021!

Authorization to Administer Medication at School

If your child needs to take any medication during the school day -- either prescription or over-the-counter (including ibuprofen or other pain reliever) -- you must submit this form with a doctor's signature to the health office at school (Aquí está la forma en español.). There are no exceptions to this policy. Students should not have medication in their backpack or pocket; parents must provide the medication indicated on the form, in original packaging, to the school nurse.

All health forms are posted on the District 34 website on our frequently used forms page. If you have questions, please contact the Lyon health office at (847) 657-2894 or the Pleasant Ridge health office at (847) 657-2794.
