Mrs. Smith’s Snapchat…

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.

Thanks for all you do!

Mrs. Smith

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.

Outside Recess

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.

The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or your child’s school. This may include your child’s photo, your child’s name or your child’s work in district publications, newsletters, on school district websites, and in electronic/social media or in staff training videos. We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, television, and radio) about your child’s achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/political purposes. However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognitions if you notify your child’s school office in writing that you do not want this type of information released.
