News from the Nurse
12-11-2014: It appears that the germs are enjoying their stay at LBMS.  This week, I am seeing an average of 18 absences per day due to illness. Influenza A and the Norovirus (stomach bug) are the primary culprits. Two cases of Strep have been reported as well.

Hand sanitizer is in every classroom. Students are being reminded to wash their hands and cover coughs and sneezes. Please keep your child home if they are feeling ill, especially if there is a fever or vomiting. Remember to report absences to the office by 9:00 am, including your child's symptoms. This information helps me monitor the health of our school community. 

As always, call or e-mail me with any questions or concerns.

Kathy Sullivan
Lake Bluff Middle School Nurse

State report card now online
11-19-2014: Each year, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) releases a "report card" for each school and district in the state to inform the public of school performance in the areas of English/Language Arts (ELA), Math, and school climate. 

The report card for Lake Bluff Elementary School District 65 is now posted online>>. The report card highlights the achievements of the children of Lake Bluff and demonstrates that the schools continue to be bastions of educational excellence for all children. 

Common Core Math Can be a Mystery, and Parents are Going to School to Understand it

11-14-2014: Understanding Common Core Math-a school district's approach to helping parents. "The changes have confused many parents--particularly at the elementary level--leaving them flustered by a basic parental duty: Helping with homework." Read more to find out how parents are being educated>>.

Student Absences

10-8-2014: If a student will be absent or arriving late, a parent or guardian must call the school at (847) 234-9407 or email athomas@lb65.org by 9:00 a.m.  If such notification is not received, the school will call your home, cell phone, or parent's place of employment. 

In some cases, information regarding missed assignments can be accessed on the Homework & Staff Web Pages at 
www.ms.lb65.org, but the web site only lists homework, not work that was completed in class that day. If a student is absent for two full days, homework can be requested from the office when the parent reports the absence before 9:00 a.m. the second day of absence. It is recommended that parents (not other students) pick up the materials after 3:45 p.m. For extended planned absences, you must present a written note or email to the office one week prior to departure. The student will be given a pre-arranged absence form to be signed by the student's teachers and returned to the office.
