Dear Lakeside Families,
This upcoming week, we will be having our first Emergency Preparedness drill for an unsafe person in or near our building. This drill is called an "ALICE" drill. All classrooms will be reviewing the principles of ALICE this upcoming week. Our drill will be on Thursday. Please read this letter to learn more about ALICE. If you have any questions, or worries, please reach out to your child's classroom teacher, or our school counselor, Mrs. Lubinski. Our top priority is to ensure your child feels safe at school and knows our building procedures for emergencies.
We are looking forward to our upcoming Family Night on Thursday, October 6th at 5pm! Please see the information below for more details.
It is a pleasure serving your children and your family here at Lakeside! Have a wonderful weekend!
Fall Family Night, October 6th from 5:00-6:30pm!
There will be other fun happening and information shared throughout the evening, as well. We look forward to seeing your family there!
Scholastic Book Fair Coming Soon!
The Lakeside PTO is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair that will be held in the Media Center October 3rd - 7th. The sale will run during student lunch hours (10:50am - 12:05pm) daily, and also from 5 - 6:30pm on October 6th, which is our Fall Family Night.
This year, say goodbye to cash and hello to eWallet - your child's digital payment account. Before the Fair, set up eWallet for worry-free, cash-free purchases. Anyone can contribute! Share each child's eWallet so friends and family can add funds and give your kids more books to enjoy!
If you can't make it to the Fair, then shop at our school's Online Book Fair. All orders ship directly to your home, and shipping is free for book orders over $25. Your online orders will also benefit our school.
Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping!
As a reminder, if you are interested in volunteering by helping in your child's classroom or chaperoning a field trip, you must have a pre-approved volunteer application on file before the volunteering event. These applications are to be filled out each school year, but then are good for the remainder of the year, and are effective for all OASD schools. You can find the application HERE.
Important!: Once you have completed your application, let the office know so that we can request that the application be processed; this does not happen automatically, and can take up to 48 hours, so please plan accordingly!

Staff Introductions - Welcome to Lakeside!
Staff Member: Kristin Mike
Role at Lakeside: Health Assistant / LPN
Teaching/Work Experience or Background: I have been in the healthcare field since I was 19 years old. I have my CNA license, Medical assistant license and received my LPN license in April 2021. I started working in Family Practice for 13 years and then transitioned to Pediatrics for the last 8 years. I enjoy working with all the elementary age students as Pediatrics is my specialty. I am enjoying working with all the children at Lakeside so far this school year and parents too. This is my first year as a school nurse. I have worked at health care organizations in the past Aurora and Thedacare in particular. Looking forward to a great school year and meeting all the students and families as well.
Family/Hobbies/Highlights to Share: I am married to my husband for the past 14.5 years. We live here in Oshkosh. We have 9 year old boy/ girl twins who keep us very busy. We have a puppy (cockapoo) who is 7 months old named Mae and 2 female hamsters Oxy and Coco. I enjoy reading a good book and spending time with my family and doing fun things together.

OASD Cybersecurity Update Impacting K-8 Students
This change was made on September 9, 2022 based on the District's ongoing review of best practices and amid recent cybersecurity attacks targeting school districts.
Parents/guardians are no longer able to email K-8 students at their district email address and K-8 students cannot email non-OASD email addresses.
Parents/guardians who need to get information to their children during the school day should contact their school office. Additionally, parents/guardians are also able to email their child's school secretary and ask that information be shared/forwarded to their child if needed.
Free Meals for All Lakeside Students!
Lakeside learned just before school started that we have qualified as a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school. What does that mean? Every student at Lakeside can receive a free breakfast and a free lunch each school day, regardless of your family's free/reduced application status!
For families who qualify, or think they may qualify, we encourage you to still complete the application! Snack milk (served in the classroom) is not part of the CEP program, so if you don't have an approved application on file, your child's snack milk will still be charged. You can apply in the Parent Portal, or contact the office for a paper copy!
Please note that milk taken with cold lunch is charged for all students, regardless of their family's free/reduced status.
Check out our Community Events page on our website for information about events happening throughout the Oshkosh community!
