Attendance Matters-Make Every Day Count
PTA's Fall Fundraiser is Underway!
Please Consider Joining!
We hope you consider joining our PTA this year. Membership is one per family/household; you do not need separate memberships for multiple parents in the household. The more members we have the stronger we are and the more people we can reach so that we can best support our Lakeshore kids!
Here's the link to join:

Arrival and Dismissal Updates
Thank you so much for your flexibility and cooperation with regards to our arrival and dismissal routines at Lakeshore this fall. Our morning car rider arrival process has been going very smoothly so far! Our dismissal process is going well too- it's gotten a little bit smoother each afternoon! If you pick your child up at dismissal time, here are a few reminders that will help contribute to a safe and quick process at the end of the day:
1) To avoid your child being put on the bus, any changes to your child's mode of transportation MUST be made in PikMyKid by 2pm. If you miss this deadline, we will be able to assist you in the Main Office up until 2:30 pm. Please note that no changes will be made to your child's mode of transportation after 2:30 p.m.
2) When you're in the Car Rider Line at dismissal, please have the 'announce' screen ready on your phone in the PikMyKid app to keep our process running smoothly. If you are not users of the PikMyKid app, we encourage you to start for a smoother dismissal process for you and your child!
3) To avoid safety and traffic issues on Latta Road, please make sure that you pull your car up as close as possible to the car in front of you in line.
4) We begin dismissing our car riders at 2:57 pm, so please ensure that you are in the car rider line at that time so that we can check you in and release your child to you more quickly.
Thank you so much for adhering to these routines and procedures so that your child can have a safe pick up at Lakeshore this year!

FREE Meals to ALL Students for 23/24 School Year
All students in all Greece schools will receive free breakfast and lunch for the 23/24 school year, regardless of their household income. Lunch applications will no longer be necessary
Instead, we strongly encouraged you to complete an Income Data Collection Form to assist the District in accurately reporting numbers to the state. While completing this form is optional, high school students who wish to receive discounts on college admission fees, AP tests, SAT exams, and other courses should complete it.
Have you started thinking about your before and after school child care needs for next school year? Registration for KidsCare, the district operated child care program for grades PreK-5, is open through My School Bucks. We are also excited to announce that the KidsCare program will be expanding to both Paddy Hill and the Early Learning Center for the new year. KidsCare offers high quality before and after school experiences designed to enrich your child’s day through activities targeting social and emotional development, creative expression, physical movement, natural world connections, and the exploration of culturally relevant topics of interest and community engagement. Learn more about the program by viewing the KidsCare 2023-2024 Flyer / UPK Wrap Flyer and register through MSB Activities. You do not want to miss the chance to reserve your spot.
