5 Essentials Survey

Lake Louise Families,

Please take some time and take the 5 Essentials Survey. Feedback will be used for future planning for Lake Louise School! We need your feedback. Thank you!

Survey open through March 11.


Details:


You have been invited to complete the Illinois 5Essentials Parent Survey. The information you provide will help guide improvement as we strive to inspire each student to realize their potential. Your participation in this survey is voluntary but crucial. We can’t receive results from the survey unless at least 20 percent of parents respond. The more responses parents provide, the more we will know how to focus our efforts toward the improvements you want. Therefore, we have set a goal to reach an 80 percent response rate. Please help us reach our goal by completing the survey.

· Go to: https://survey.5-essentials.org/Illinois/ to take the survey.

· Select “Parent Survey.”

· You may enter your email address if you would like to receive confirmation of your submission, but it is not required.

· Then enter “Cook” into the county field and “Lincoln” to find our school.

You will then be asked a series of questions to provide input regarding your family’s experience here at Lincoln. Please remember to click “submit” once you are done so your responses can be counted.

Please know that your identity and responses will be kept confidential and will not be connected

with your child. If you have multiple children who attend Lincoln, you may complete one survey for each child. However, only one parent per household may submit a survey for a given child. The survey closes on March 11, so please submit your responses soon!

Thank you in advance for your time and input. We appreciate you!


If you have any questions about the survey, please contact 5Essentials Customer Support at 1-866-440-1874 or 5essentials@uchicago.edu.

February 23rd Changes to Lake Louise School Times

Dear Parents,

The district has shared, that due to a bus driver shortage, we are moving to an adjusted time schedule on February 23, 2022. Lake Louise's school hours will be pushed back.


Remember the below times BEGIN ON FEBRUARY 23!

  • Doors open at 9:00 am. Arrival supervision begins at 9, so please do not drop children off before 9:00 am.
  • Dismissal M - Th: 3:55 pm
  • Dismissal Fridays: 3:05 pm
  • The Lake Louise office will be open from 8:15-4:45.

COVID-19

District 15 has shared various OPTIONAL vaccination opportunities on our website. We do so only as a resource for interested families.



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.

In need of food? The photos below provide information regarding local food pantries!

District 15 Updates

Online Registration for the 22-23 School Year

Online student registration for the 2022-23 school year is now open. If you have not already started this process for your student(s), please visit our registration page to start this process.


Registration is the first step in getting ready for the up-coming school year. After you register your child online you need to:

  1. Pay student fees. Our student fee webpage outlines the District’s student fee structure and the three ways fees can be paid.

  2. If you have a student that is starting Kindergarten, entering fourth grade, or entering 7th grade, you are required to prove residency in District 15. Our residency webpage outlines the documents you will need to provide to prove residency.


All three steps of the enrollment process must be completed prior to the start of the school year. Students of families that, when required, do not prove residency, will not be able to attend class in a District 15 until the family’s residency is verified.


LOOKING FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION?

View the recorded CCSD15 Parent University sponsored registration webinar. For written registration instructions, please watch our Campus Parent - An Introduction.


In the event that a family is unable to provide any needed documentation because of a temporary living situation, please contact Julie O'Hara, 847-963-3210, oharaj@ccsd15.net; or Min Goodwin, 847-963-3209, goodwinm@ccsd15.net, in the Superintendent's Office.


Think you may be eligible for a student fee waiver? Visit our student fee webpage to learn about the requirements and how to apply.


Think you may be eligible for services under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act? Please contact Tiffanie Jefferies, Ed.D., Director of Student Services, 847-963-3152.


Thank you.

Orland Park Dental Services for CCSD15 Students

Community Consolidated School District 15 will be hosting Orland Park Dental Services (OPDS) coming up in March through May. OPDS has provided in-school dental services for all eligible children in the State of Illinois since 1999. Dental services will be accessible to children eligible for public aid as well as for those with private insurance.


Anyone signed up will receive a free dental exam and a toothbrush. For those that qualify or provide private insurance information, the additional services may include a cleaning, fluoride treatment, and sealants. All services done will be given to the child in a take home form describing the services determined, areas of concern, overall oral care score, and any additional care needed. If any additional help is needed for the child a comprehensive list of available local dentists will be given with no limits of insurance. All these in-school services will be provided by licensed dentists, hygienists, and assistants with state-of-the-art portable equipment and ensuring a clean, safe, and comfortable environment at your child’s school.

Browse the website for more information at www.opdsdental.com
