Dear Lakeside Families,
The end of the year is near and, with that, the final celebration event: Field Day! A big thank you to Erin Coppernoll, ElizaBeth Chase, and Stephanie Homman for planning Field Day for this year. Due to COVID restrictions, parents are not able to be at Field Day, but these parents and our PE teacher have done all the planning to make our event a success. Here's what you'll need to send with your child on Thursday, June 3:
- A filled water bottle. We will have refill stations during Field Day, but due to COVID, we will not be drinking from water fountains.
- Slather sunscreen the morning of Field Day. We do not put sunscreen on children at school, but if they'd like to apply on their own, that is acceptable.
- No lunch is needed! OASD Food Service is working in collaboration with Pizza Hut to provide a great end of the year lunch for all students. It will be free of charge, like all meals this year. :)
As we come closer to a close of the 2020-21 school year, I want to share with you a few pieces of information that will be sent to you in the upcoming weeks:
- Your child's report card will be sent on Infinite Campus and mailed to your home on Friday, June 4. You will also see a school calendar for the 21-22 school year with dates for our Open House, Conferences, and Family Nights. This calendar is also available HERE.
- Your child's iReady assessment data will be sent to you in the mail so that you can see your child's growth in both literacy and math.
- Our school supply list for the 21-22 school year can be found on our school website, or CLICK HERE.
If you have any questions about upcoming events or planning for next year, please reach out!
6th Grade Immunizations
5th Grade Families - please CLICK HERE to read the immunization requirements for your student. This is required BEFORE they begin 6th grade!
Picking Up Medications and Medication Authorization for 21-22
All medications are to be picked up by parent/guardian on or before the last day of school (June 3, 2021). Our policy will not allow us to keep them for the next school year.
If you know your student will need medication next school year, we are asking you this summer to obtain an order from your doctor/nurse practitioner before the the start of the next school year. You can pick up this Medication/Treatment Request form from your school office before the end of this school year, or click HERE to print a copy from home if you'd prefer. A physician/nurse practitioner signature must accompany all medications/treatments intended for more than 10 days' use.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to call the health office at 424-0131, ext 3855.
The medication/treatment form, when completed by you and your doctor, can be given to the school health office staff along with the properly labeled container of medication at the start of the next school year.
Last Chance for Yearbooks! We have a limited number of yearbooks available for purchase in the office. The cost of the yearbook is $12.25, and they will be available on a first come, first served basis. Don't miss your last chance to purchase a yearbook!
Summer Watering Schedule for the Gardens
Growing Oshkosh will again be planting our garden beds this spring and we will need your help in keeping them watered throughout the summer! Please check out the watering schedule HERE and consider signing up for a slot if you and your family are able to help. As in past years, the produce in the garden is available to any family who would like to come pick, we just ask that you be considerate of other families and only take what you are able to use. Thank you for your help!
