Bike Riders and Lost & Found

As the weather has warmed up, we've noticed an increase in bike riders to Dressel. We strongly encourage all students to wear helmets to school. We would also like families to complete this form so we have a record of how your student is getting home (only for families that didn't complete it at the beginning of the year).

Also, as the year wraps up, all items in the Lost & Found will be donated at the end of the day on Friday, May 19th.

Nurse Stacey Health Notes

Our kindergarten, 1st and 3rd graders were screened by UMSL this year for vision. Your child/ren will be bringing home their screening results today. They will bring home 1 of 3 forms described below-

1. UMSL results stating that your child passed vision screening. There is nothing for you to do.

2. UMSL results stating that your child failed vision screening AND a Lindbergh Vision Referral Form. This means your child failed visual acuity, which is what Lindbergh typically screens for. We recommend that your child see an eye specialist.

3. UMSL results stating that your child failed vision screening. This means your child failed something other than visual acuity and is something UMSL screens and Lindbergh does not. This is provided as a courtesy; feel free to contact your child's eye care provider if you have concerns.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Dressel’s Scholastic Book Fair is fast approaching. Students will be able to preview the fair and make their wish lists on May 4-5. They will then be able to shop during the week of May 8-12. There will be a special shopping opportunity during Color Run and Spring Festival on May 6th from 9:30am-1pm.. If you would rather not send your student with cash, Scholastic offers an easy way for your kids to purchase their books with eWallet. Here is the link to load your child’s eWallet. All they will need to do is give their name at checkout.

If you are looking for a way to be involved and volunteer, working at the bookfair is a perfect way to get started. Here is the link to sign up to volunteer…

2023 Board of Education Learning Report Update

Earlier this month, I was proud to share some of the highlights from this school year with our Lindbergh Schools Board of Education annual Learning Report. Some of the things I shared about our amazing teachers, students and staff include: mySAEBRS, Deryn and her 4C work, and restorative circles.

New Student Information System Launching Soon

We are excited to announce the launch of a new student information system, Infinite Campus, which will replace Tyler SIS beginning in the 2023-24 school year. With Infinite Campus, you will be able to check your student’s grades, attendance records, and other important information from your phone, tablet, or computer. You will also be able to communicate with your student’s teachers and stay up-to-date on assignments and events.

While parents will continue to have access to the SIS Portal for the remainder of this school year, Annual Online Verification for the 2023-24 school year will begin in May, using Infinite Campus. Please look for more information coming soon.

Lindbergh staff have been training regularly to ensure a smooth transition for district families. In fact, our new kindergarten families used Infinite Campus for new student registration this Spring, and their feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. We are confident that Infinite Campus will be a great improvement for Lindbergh students and families throughout the school year, and we cannot wait to show you all the great features it has to offer!

Be on the lookout soon for login information and helpful tips!

National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is April 22

Too often, unused prescription drugs find their way into the wrong hands. That's dangerous and often tragic. The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Saturday, April 22, aims to provide a safe, convenient, and responsible means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse of medications. The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day reflects a commitment to Americans’ safety and health, encouraging the public to remove unneeded, unwanted and expired medications from their homes as a measure of preventing medication misuse and opioid addiction.

Local drop-off locations include:

  • Crestwood Police Department

  • Sunset Hills Police Department

  • City of Green Park City Hall

  • Grantwood Village City Hall

  • St. Louis County Police South County precinct

  • St. Louis County Police Fenton precinct (in municipal building)
