Over the next few weeks, our schools will be transitioning to a new visitor management system called LobbyGuard. LobbyGuard will replace the Raptor system currently in place, and still offer the same security features. LobbyGuard is a self-serve kiosk that requires visitors to scan a valid driver's license prior to obtaining a badge to enter the school. Upon entry into the vestibule, visitors will use the touch screen at the kiosk to enter information and scan their license. Once approved, visitors will obtain a badge from the office staff. The office will keep either the driver's license or keys of each visitor entering the school. All visitors must check out before exiting the building and retrieve their driver's license or keys. LobbyGuard is currently in use at LFHS, so parents with students in both districts will now use the same process upon entry into all Lake Forest Schools.
Local (Evanston) award-winning author Carolyn Crimi will be presenting at each of the D67 elementary schools during Oct. 21-23. Ms. Crimi has written over 15 children's books and has her first chapter book, entitled Weird Little Robots, launching on October 1st. Students brought home a book order form during the week of September 16th. Parents can purchase books through the APT that will be personalized and autographed by Ms. Crimi. All book order forms need to be submitted to the school no later than SEPTEMBER 26th. We apologize, but late order forms cannot be accepted due to the lead-time necessary for Lake Forest Bookstore to obtain the books. Students will receive these autographed books during Ms. Crimi's visit.
Thank you to the Spirit of 67 for the generous grant that is funding Ms. Crimi's visit.
Spookfest will be held on Friday, October 25: Grades K-2: 5:00-6:00 pm, Grades 3-4: 6:30-7:30 pm. The kids are off school that day due to parent-teacher conferences, but we'll be getting into the Halloween spirit at Cherokee that evening! Please note this is a drop-off, student-only event. Be on the look-out for a parent volunteer sign-up closer to the date!
