Dr. Ackley’s Message . . .
Honoring grandparents is a long standing tradition at North Lake School. Thank you to everyone for patience and flexibility at this busy event. Over 450 Salisbury steak lunches were served with pleasure. Mrs. Cull’s farm kitchen ran smoothly with the help of Grandma Gail Shine.
SCHOOL SAFETY ISSUE
Parents, please SLOW down in our parking lot when dropping off in the morning and picking up in the afternoon. The crosswalk sign was recently run over in the parking lot! Children must be escorted to and from your vehicle! We do not want parents standing by their vehicles or in the parking lot at pick up. Students are easily unseen at this busy time of day.
Let’s all COME TOGETHER around this important safety issue.
MEET MRS. LOFY
Mrs. Lofy lives in the Lake Country area and is excited to serve as North Lake School’s Speech Pathologist. She enjoys reading, walking, and experiencing the fall colors. Mrs. Lofy has a husband, two daughters, one dog, and one rabbit, named Cake Pop. Please welcome Mrs. Lofy to our North Lake School family.

School safety is always a priority at North Lake School, and this priority includes bus transportation. MyView is real time, map based bus locator and available as an app on your smartphone or tablet. Parents can create alert zones around drop off and pick up points. When your child’s bus enters an alert zone, you will receive a notification. No more worries about where your child’s bus is located!
Please see the attached instructions at the end of the WAVE for detailed information. If you need even more specific instructions to download and set up the app, please contact the office.
