Dear Lakeside Parents and Guardians,
Please note that school will not be in session on Monday due to the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday.
I hope you had an opportunity to see your child’s report card that was sent home last week. Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions.
3rd and 4th grade parents, the time for standardized testing is near. Daily attendance for testing is very important and I ask that you attempt to schedule any appointments outside of the testing dates. Statewide testing window: IREAD 3 March 11th23rd and ILEARN April 22nd –May 17th.

Lost and Found
We currently have many personal items in the Lost and Found bins located in the school clinic. Please check with your child and if they are missing any clothing, jackets, books, lunchboxes, or other personal items, please have them check our bins. Any item not claimed by the end of the year will be donated to a worthy charity.
It’s that time of year when we need to remind student to make sure they have appropriate clothing for recess. The district policy states students will be going outside for recess if the temperature and the wind chill are above 20 degrees. We have extra coats, hats, and gloves for students in need. Please contact the front office if you need assistance.
Students must go outside unless we have a doctor statement.
While we love to celebrate, please remember that there is a “no birthday treats “ guideline. To access fun and helpful resources for healthy celebration ideas please visit the district wellness policy by clicking on this link. Also, note that no birthday invitations are allowed to be distributed at school. It is school policy.
SCHOOL DISTRICT PUBLICATIONS/ NEWS MEDIA USE FOR STUDENTS
In compliance with the district's wellness policy, please DO NOT send in a food item for your child's birthday. We encourage you to donate your child's favorite book to their classroom, arrange a time for a game or craft in the classroom, send in party hats for your students class or send in stickers or cards.
In an effort to keep all students safe anyone wanting to visit the classroom, have lunch with a child, and/or go on field trips must visit the front office to complete a background check. Please bring an ID at that time. Visits are limited to 30 minutes throughout the day. During those 30 minutes, parents are not able to talk with teachers. We do not want to interrupt class time. If you are wanting to meet with a teacher please schedule that with the teacher prior to you visiting the school. Again, we do not want to interrupt instruction time.
If a student has a balance of $25.00 or higher, the student will be provided a choice of two alternate meals at a reduced rate of $0.50. Parents may check student account balances by using the link provided to the Lunch Parent Portal.
