Mustang Scholars and Families,
Thank you to all those families that attended virtual family conferences.
Here are a few updates and reminders:
SHIELD Testing: Tomorrow (10/20/21) we will be our 4th COVID-19 SHIELD testing at OLHMS only for those that have already completed the OPT-IN form and signed their student up in Skyward Family Access.
The SHIELD Illinois program is a quick, simple, and non-invasive COVID-19 screening test. Students that have opted-in to the program will provide a small amount of saliva that is tested at a professional lab. Results of the test are then provided to families and our school district within the days following. The program offers students the opportunity to reduce or waive quarantine requirements in the event of close contact with a positive case or if the student demonstrates symptoms. You can opt-in to the program at any time by accessing Online Forms in Skyward Family Access. More information about the SHIELD Illinois program can be found at: d123.org/shield-illinois-testing-program
Registered families will only receive results in the event that a student tests positive.
Please reach out to the school if you have registered via Skyward and the system didn't accept it.
Lunch: Here is the link for the October Lunch Menu . Please remember there is a free option, but any items not included with the free lunch will become a charge to your account.
Parent Pick Up and Drop Off: Please continue to exercise a courteous approach when dropping off and picking up scholars! Scholars should not be running across the street to get into your vehicles- we have had a few very close calls with students almost getting hit by a car. We have also gotten concerns from our neighbors about driveways being blocked or parents parking in driveways for drop off. Please be conscious of our neighbors and their ability to get in and out of their residence.
Amazon Smile Account: Our lovely PTSA has requested that we utilize and promote the PTSA Amazon Smile Account. Here is the link Amazon Smile. Parents/ staff would need to choose Oak Lawn Hometown Middle PTSA.
