Health Office News
Flu season is upon us! Please be sure to get your flu shot.
All 6th grade immunizations must be submitted to the health office ASAP. Please be sure to submit your child's medication and medication orders to the nurses office if it is necessary for your child to receive medication during the school day.
If your child will be absent from school, please contact the school absence line by dialing 609-671-5530 prompt 5. With the cooler weather upon us please remember to send the proper outdoor wear for your children as we will go outside for recess each day. If your child borrows clothes from the health office, please wash and return them. Any questions? Please call the nurses office at 671-5533
WELCOME OFFICER CSEREMSAK
Please help us welcome our new Class III Officer to LIS, Officer Mike Cseremsak.
Mike retired with the rank of Sergeant from the Hopewell Police Department in July 2017 after 30 yrs of service. He spent many years in the traffic unit as a patrol officer and later as the Traffic Sergeant. His specialty was training. He designed a summer Youth Police Academy in 2007 that continues to this day. Additionally, he participated in the Adopt-a-Cop program and was assigned to a second grade class of Hopewell Elementary. He has had advanced training at the FBI National Academy. After retiring, Mike became a Public Safety Officer at the Institute for Advance Study in Princeton.
Mike was elected to the Hopewell Fire District #1 Board of Fire Commissioners in 2007 and continues to serve on this board.
Mike grew up in Trenton and graduated from McCorristin High School. He has an AA from Mercer County Community College in Criminal Justice, a BA from Thomas Edison State College in Liberal Studies, and a MA from Seton Hall in Human Resources Training and Development.
Class III officers are a new category of security within New Jersey as of 2018. They are armed, retired law enforcement officers who previously served as fully trained, full-time officers in New Jersey. They are hired with the major focus of being a visible presence in the school and helping to keep students and staff safe from an outside intruder. Lawrence Town Council and the Lawrence Board of Education joined forces to find funding within their respective budgets for the LIS position as well as for a Class III officer at Lawrence Middle School and a Student Resource Officer at Lawrence High School.
Sincerely, Ms. Westhead & Ms. Amiet
