This week is National Teacher Appreciation Week. A week is not enough to tell our Kolling teachers just how grateful we are for all they do for our children.
“Your heart is slightly bigger than the average human heart, but that’s because you’re a teacher.”
Thank you to all our Kolling teachers for changing the world – one child at a time.
If you have not done so already, please take a moment to log into your child’s Skyward account and complete the new form letting us know if your child(ren) will be returning to Kolling (or 5th grade at Clark) next year. It takes about 1 minute to complete and you will see the link at the top of the page when you log into Skyward. This is something we do each year and it is extremely important information in planning staffing decisions for the upcoming school year. If you have questions about how to fill out the form, there are step-by-step directions attached here: Intent to return directions.pdf
For the past 5 years, Third Grade has collected gently loved stuffed animals to be donated to our local police departments and other agencies who give them to children who needed comforting in stressful situations. If you would like to donate to our Comfort Toy Drive, please send donations in a tied plastic bag. E-learning families can drop off donations in the vestibule at Door B here at Kolling.
This is a reminder that students will be released 90 minutes early every Wednesday for the remainder of the school year. If your child is a bus rider, they will arrive home exactly 90 minute earlier than their normal arrival time. If you are picking your child up on Wednesdays, please make sure you are aware of the early release parent pick-up staggered arrival schedule found on page 2 of our drop-off/pick-up procedures. These procedures are always listed on the Kolling website and the direct link is pasted here: https://kolling.lcsc.us/wp-content/uploads/sites/8/2020/10/parent_drop_off_pick_up_2020_updated.pdf
If your child is exhibiting illness, they must be picked up right away. It is the responsibility of the parent to have arrangements in place in case your child must be sent home without notice. Please see the link below regarding the district’s Quarantining Guidelines.

The most convenient way to communicate dismissal changes is to write a note and send it in with your child. Make sure the note is big enough that it will not get lost between larger papers, includes your child’s first AND last name, includes the teacher’s name, and includes the date for the changes. If you are not able to write a note, you must call the office and leave a message on the voicemail or with a secretary. Most importantly, please make sure changes are in by 2pm each day. If it is an Adventure Club change, remember to notify Adventure Club AND our school.
The Lake Central School Board meets two times a month and those meetings are usually the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month. All are welcome to attend. You may also watch live streamed meetings on the LCTVNEWS Youtube page. Meeting videos are always archived for later viewing. Dates for school board meetings can be found on the School Board section of the district website. I have provided that link here as well: http://lcsc.us/administrators/school-board/
