Lake Louise School

December 5th, 2021

Reminders

The weather is starting to change! Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather each day. If the temperature (including wind chill) is above 0 degrees, we will be outside for at least 20 minutes. We want our students to get outside to run around and play, but it will be important for them to dress in warm coats, hats, gloves, boots and snow pants! Thank you!


Please make sure your children have masks that fit properly. If a mask is too big, it does not cover the nose. When possible, send your child with an additional mask as students have had some wet or torn masks throughout the day. Please wash cloth masks regularly.

Is your student interested in being a Daisy Girl Scout? Lake Louise has a new Daisy Girl Scout Troop that is accepting new members! They are Troop 47388 and parents can register their children at https://www.girlscoutsgcnwi.org/. Meetings will start in January and be held once per month.


Parents can contact Natalie Domek with any questions at Natalieczu@gmail.com.

District 15 Updates

Optional Vaccination Clinic - Transportation can be requested!

District 15 is sharing information regarding a second opportunity for families to have their children ages 5 -11 years old vaccinated against COVID-19. In addition to 5-11 vaccinations, IDPH will also have adult vaccinations and boosters appointments available.


The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) has partnered with District 15 for this second vaccination opportunity. Parents/guardians MUST accompany their child(ren) to the clinic.

All scheduling of vaccinations will be done through the following IDPH moderated link: https://events.juvare.com/IL-IDPH/w77s9/1150433/.


Dates:

  • Dose 1: Saturday, December 18, 2021

  • Dose 2: Saturday, January 8, 2022


Appointment Times:

  • 10 am - 3 pm


Location of Vaccination Clinic:

  • Conyers Learning Academy is located at 2800 Central Road Rolling Meadows, IL

  • All vaccination appointments will be held in the multi-purpose room/cafeteria. Parking will be available at CLA and guests are asked to enter the building using Entrance 15.


Additional Information:

  • No insurance is needed.

  • District 15 will be offering transportation to/from the vaccination clinic from various locations in the area. If you would be interested in transportation, please fill out this form. Transportation will be provided based on need/responses to this survey.

  • Vaccine recipients should wear vaccine appropriate clothes (short sleeves) to expedite the process.

  • We encourage you to ask your child to pick out their favorite stuffed animal to bring with them; let them know that their animal friend will be able to get a shot, too!

  • Post Vaccine Q&A


Documentation/Forms to Bring to the Appointment:

  • COVID Vaccine Consent Form — parent/guardian must sign the form for their children under age 18.

  • Please bring a copy of parent/guardian ID.


Submitting Your Child’s Completed Vaccination Card

Once your child has received both doses of the vaccine, we ask that you please submit a copy of it to your school nurse. Fully vaccinated individuals are not identified as close contacts, and therefore, not excluded from school if there is a positive COVID case (as long as they remain asymptomatic). This documentation is very important during our contact tracing efforts. Families will continue to be notified if a student is identified as a close contact so they are aware to monitor for potential symptoms.


If these dates do not work for you, District 15 has shared various vaccination opportunities on the website.



Thank you for your continued support of our District.

Mini-Grant Fund-a-Thon

The one-five Foundation is once again offering an annual mini-grant program for staff members of Community Consolidated School District 15. These proposed projects support a wide range of opportunities for the students of the District with a focus on programs or technology.

This year, 13 grant applications have been preliminarily approved by the Foundation for funding. While the one-five Foundation Teacher Mini-Grant Committee has preliminarily approved these projects, additional funds are needed to make them a reality. These amazing projects could have an impact on thousands of students across all grade levels in 12 different school locations throughout the district.

You can help! Please consider making a donation to the one-five Foundation Teacher Mini-Grant program to help our teachers help our children. Project details can be found on the one-five website along with options for online donations.

Thank you in advance for your support of our teachers and staff members and their proposed projects!
