Holiday Food Drive image Holiday Food Drive

Forestlawn will be having a canned food drive again this year. The collected food items will be donated to the Sheffield Lake Community Civic Council who will assemble Holiday baskets that will be distributed to less fortunate families in our community.

We are collecting canned goods and non-perishable food items (no glass containers). If you would like to make a donation, please have your child bring the food items to school between November 27th and December 11th.

Thank you and we wish you and your family a very Happy Holiday Season.

 

 
 Holiday Shoppe image Holiday Shoppe
The Holiday Shoppe is coming to Forestlawn. The Shoppe will run from Nov. 27th-Dec. 1st.  Your child will be able to shop during their library time. This event is hosted by your Cardinal PTO and is not a fundraising event, just an opportunity to help the children be able to give gifts of their own choosing. 

Watch for information to come home soon about our Holiday Shoppe!

As fall/winter approaches, please remember to dress your child in weather appropriate clothes. Please keep in mind, breakfast begins at 8:15. The entry bell for all other students is at 8:20. No child is allowed to wait outside the doors without a parent or guardian BEFORE 8:20. THERE IS NO WAITING IN THE FOYER AREA OF THE SCHOOL. In addition to the outside wait in the morning, students will be having outside recess each day, (as long as it is not below 20 degrees or raining/snowing). Mittens, gloves and hats are helpful on many days as well as a warm coat. Students may remain inside during recess only with physician’s note on file in the office. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE I CAN VOLUNTEER AT THE SCHOOL image WHAT DO I NEED TO DO BEFORE I CAN VOLUNTEER AT THE SCHOOL


We value your help and support in our schools. In today’s climate we’re sure you understand the need to ensure the safety of our students. Before volunteering we ask that you complete the following steps:

1.  Come into the school office and let them know you wish to become a school volunteer.  The office will notify the secretary at the Board Office that you will be coming over to get the paperwork needed.

2.  At this time you can go to the Board Office to pick up an official records check

form. (You need to use this form, no other form will be accepted.)

3.   Then make an appointment for your background check, both a FBI/BCI.

4 . Once the background check is received, the building Administrator will send a recommendation to Mr. Cook to have the volunteer names placed on the Board Agenda to be approved.

5. Once you are Board approved, you will be able to begin to volunteer.

Thank you for being a very important part of our schools. The students and staff appreciate all that our volunteers do for us.

Please know the Sheffield-Sheffield Lake City School District pays for all of our volunteer background checks.

2 HOUR DELAY image 2 HOUR DELAY
If a 2 hour delay is called for our school, it means that the student start time will be 10:35AM.  Buses will still be running, but 2 hours later.  For instance, if you bus usually comes at 8:00, with a 2 hour delay it will be at your bus stop at 10:00.  Dismissal time will be the same at 3:20PM. Please have a plan in place so you are prepared when a 2 hour delay is called.  Breakfast is not served when we have a 2 hour delay. 
I.D. Tags image I.D. Tags

At the beginning of the school year each child will receive 3 numbered tags. To help dismissal run more smoothly, please attach the numbered key ring to your child’s book bag. The key ring is to stay on the book bag all year. Also, please attach the other two numbered tags to your car keys etc….this is our way to identify you and your child at dismissal. If your child is a walker or bus rider, please attach the key ring to their book bag as well, just in case they are a car rider throughout the year. All parents will show their numbered key ring  to the staff member at the door and they will find the child with the matching number. Safety is IMPORTANT and I want to make sure all of our students at Forestlawn are safe.

 
PARENT VISITATION AT FORESTLAWN AND KNOLLWOOD image PARENT VISITATION AT FORESTLAWN AND KNOLLWOOD
There is a procedure for parents visiting during the school day at Knollwood and Forestlawn this year.  When a parent wants to visit their child's classroom during the day, the parent will have to either call or email the teacher to set up an appointment.  Frequent distractions interrupt the educational process of learning for all the students and it is often hard to get all the students back on the learning track.  Thank you for helping us keep the learning environment a productive one.

THERE IS NO WAITING IN THE FOYER AREA OF THE SCHOOL. Students must be in their homerooms and ready to work by 8:35 or they will be counted tardy.

 End of the day dismissal is at 3:20. All bus riders will be dismissed out the back gym doors. Bus riders will leave as soon as their buses arrive. Walkers and bike riders will be dismissed out the East doors of the building. Our crossing guard will be checking tag numbers for any parent that wishes to walk with their child. She will cross students needing to cross Forestlawn Ave. and walk the other students down to Lake Breeze Rd. and cross them.  All car riders will be dismissed out the front doors. THERE IS NO WAITING IN THE FOYER AREA OF THE SCHOOL . All parents will show their numbered key ring to the staff member at the door and they will find the child with the matching number. Please help us make this process be as smooth as possible. If you have forgotten your numbered key ring, we ask that you wait until the end of dismissal to identify your child in the office with ID. Thank you for your continuous support. If you have any questions regarding this procedure, please call the office at 949-4238.
