A Note From Mr. Moeckel
What a great summer. We hope everyone enjoyed some rest and relaxation. We are excited to kick off the 23-24 school year! School starts on Tuesday and this week's eNote focuses on all those last minute items on everyone's mind. (Warning: Information overload!)
Below are a few IMPORTANT details for our families:
- If you haven't completed online verification, you need to do that immediately.
- Please be sure to review arrival/dismissal procedures below.
- We have linked our hand book and included some graphics.
- Students be dismissed from campus no earlier than 3:35 pm
- Download the PikMyKid app. Everyone needs this.
- Expect delays in dismissal procedures and busses for the first week or two.
- Bus service - if you do not see it listed in the parent portal of IC, keep checking. If you do not see anything come early Monday morning, please make arrangements for getting your student to and from school.
- The doors open for students at 8:35. Please do not drop them off any earlier.
We are looking forward to this year!!

Pik My Kid
We utilize the Pik My Kid app during dismissal and to communicate absences. If you are unfamiliar with Pik My Kid, you are strongly encouraged to review the content link below. If you don't have the app, please visit your app store and find the free download. [Please note: dismissal is a process that will grow in efficiency each day. Each year we have new teacher, students, and families that need a few days to learn the routines. Thanks for offer everyone some grace! ]

Notes from Nurse Emily
Medications at School
If your child requires any medication during the school day (inhalers, epi pens, ibuprofen, lunchtime medications, etc.), please note the following requirements:
-must be in original box/prescription container with label
-must be brought in by an adult
-must have physician order (rx label or note from provider for any OTC meds)
-must have signed parent permission form (Click Here for the Form)
**PLEASE NOTE: Students are generally not permitted to carry medication to and from school. If your child's condition requires him/her to carry emergency medication, please get additional required paperwork from Nurse Emily
Nurse Emily will be available at K-5 Meet the Teacher nights for medication drop offs and regular school days 8:25-3:35. Outside of those times by appointment only.
Extra Clothes - ALL GRADE LEVELS
As you pack your child's backpack for the year, please include a spare change of clothes. At some point in the year, students from every grade level will need a backup outfit! These are used for much more than bathroom accidents - rips, falls in the mud, stuck in the rain, spills, and much more. This is especially important for older students who prefer their own clothes and need the larger sizes that are very limited in the nurse's office. Packing a spare outfit now will save you a trip up to school in the middle of the school year!

Student bus stop assignments, and pickup and drop-off times, will be available in the Infinite Campus Portal on Aug. 16.
To view bus route information in the Infinite Campus Portal, click “More” in the left menu, then click “Transportation” in the middle of the page.
NOTE: The deadline to guarantee bus service for the first week of school has passed. Families who have not signed up for bus service can still do so by completing the annual verification process. Once this process is complete, student bus information will be processed and made available on the Infinite Campus Portal as soon as possible. We recommend that parents check back often for updates.
Check Pickup, Drop-Off Times
Families should check pickup and drop-off times frequently during the first few weeks of school, since routes are subject to change as student enrollment continues. Please allow 10 minutes before and after your scheduled pickup time to account for traffic and other delays.
If You Do Not Have Bus Stop Information
If you do not have bus stop information it could be due to one of the following reasons:
Your student’s annual verification forms were not completed in Infinite Campus.
You selected "no transportation services needed" when you completed your forms.
Your student receives transportation from St. Louis Special School District (SSD).
Your family resides within a half mile of your elementary school or one mile from your secondary school and walking conditions are determined to be safe for students.
If you do not see bus stop information in the portal, please plan to transport your student until you see your bus stop information in Infinite Campus.
In partnership with First Student, Lindbergh Schools uses the FirstView app to communicate bus information with families in real time, including your student’s pickup and drop-off times, and any delays or notifications. For complete details about the app and how to download it visit our website at go.lindberghschools.ws/transportation. You will need your student's State ID to set up your account. The ID number can be found in Infinite Campus. The State ID is right under your student's picture. If you have multiple students, you will need to click on your student’s picture to see the State ID number.
Email email@example.com for assistance with your transportation needs. Please include your student’s first and last name and your home address.
Meal menus are available on the district website, under the “Families” tab. Click “Browse Menus” on your student’s school to see meal options for each school day.
Elementary, middle and high school student breakfast is $1.85
Elementary student lunch is $3.45
Middle and high school student lunch is $3.65
Reduced-cost lunch is $0.40, and breakfast is $0.30
All students use their lunch PIN to purchase meals, and charges are credited to the student’s account in Infinite Campus. Before school begins, it is important to check your student’s meal account balance in the Infinite Campus Portal.
How to Add Money to Your Student’s Meal Account:
Log in to the Infinite Campus Portal. Your student’s current food service balance will be visible under their name on the Infinite Campus main page.
Click “Food Service” in the left-hand menu.
Click the “Pay” button.
Enter your dollar amounts for each student. You will see a message that reads “Deposits added to cart.”
Click “My Cart” to add a payment method and pay. Accepted payment methods include checking account, savings account, credit card or debit card.
Free and Reduced Meal Application
Families who qualify for free or reduced-price meals should fill out an application for the 2023-24 school year as soon as possible. Reduced-cost lunch is $0.40, and breakfast is $0.30. In addition, filling out a form could also result in additional financial assistance for your family. In Lindbergh, those benefits include:

2023-24 Annual Verification of Student Information
2023-24 Annual Verification of Student Information
Completing your student’s required paperwork through the Annual Verification process each summer helps us prepare for a successful start to the school year.
Each year, our district requires Annual Verification of information to be completed for all new and returning students. This helps us guarantee bus transportation, confirm contact information, assign teachers and create student schedules, learn about your student’s health needs, and make sure meal accounts are set up and ready to go.
We appreciate your patience as we transition to our new student information system, Infinite Campus. Infinite Campus is replacing the SIS Portal that has been used in previous years, and we are working hard behind the scenes to make sure everything is ready for the new school year.
If you have received your link and have been able to register, please complete the Annual Verification process on the Infinite Campus Portal.
If you have not received a link or your registration is not allowing you access, please email ICSupport@lindberghschools.ws. We ask for your patience as we work to respond to each email as quickly as possible.
