ARE YOU INTERESTED IN THE FUTURE OF EDUCATION IN OUR DISTRICT? 

YOUR IDEAS ARE IMPORTANT!!

Community Dialogue #1 (Monday, October 6----6-8 p.m. LHS Cafeteria) Enter door #5


Community Members/Parents Invited to School Community Dialogue #1

This meeting will impact the future educational direction taken by the school district.

Building on the success of the first Futures Conference held Sept. 2, Lake Local Schools invite more community members and parents to attend the upcoming Community Dialogue #1. 

During this meeting attendees will be asked to share their thoughts and opinions about the following:

· Grade Configuration

· Current Facility Conditions

· School Enrollment

· Alternative Educational Delivery Methods (online, career tech, etc.)

“This first Community Dialogue is critical in determining Lake Local School District’s future.  We need our community to help identify the kinds of buildings and classrooms used by our students, where the buildings should be located, and the size of the classrooms.  Our schools are a direct reflection of our community, and our students’ future depends on how well we prepare them,” said Lake Local Schools Superintendent Jeff Wendorf.

“Listening to you is critical in determining what future decisions will be made for our schools – your participation in these Community Collaboration sessions is imperative.  Parents whose children are currently enrolled in the schools are an especially valuable group that we’d like to see attend.  Join us Oct. 6 and offer your opinions as to how we can better serve you and your children during the years ahead.”

STUDENT ILLNESS/ CALL OFF    1. Parents are to report their child's absence from school by phone by 8:00 a.m. to (330) 877-4290.  They may call and simply report this to the answering machine or the school secretary. (guardian name, student name, day of absence, reason for absence and his/her grade)

2. If no call off was made, the student should have the parent or guardian write an excuse giving student name, grade, date, days of absence, reason for absence and his/her signature which is to be submitted to the main office upon the student's return.

NOTE:  If a personal illness requires medical attention, please forward a copy of the certificate of the doctor. The student will report to the main office with his/her "Medical Excuse" after which a special medical admission slip will be issued. This serves to notify teachers and attendance officers that the absence was medically excused.   

3. The student should ask all teachers for make-up work. Assignments that are not made up will be reflected in their grade. Each student is responsible for seeing that all make-up work is completed.

PINNACLE INTERNET VIEWER (PIV) -

If you lose the code or cannot log in, please contact the guidance office (Mrs. Conti) and she will print out a new letter for you.
We are not permitted to give this information out over the phone.
