Message from Principal Thompson

Dear Lakewood families, 

It's been a great week of learning together! Thank you to our musical theater teachers Ms. Benton and Mr. Reich for their hard work spearheading this new program at Lakewood. 

Shout out to all our 3rd grade students, families, and teachers for working hard on their unique performances for Peter and the Wolf. We look forward to learning and growing the program next year. 

Next week we are excited to see our 4th grade musical theater performances, as well as our Kindergarten performance.

Though masks are now recommended, the policies for contact tracing and quarantining remain in place.

For anyone testing positive, the district will follow the five-day isolation period recommended by the CDC. If students display symptoms, we ask their families to keep them at home. 

A student is deemed a close contact if they are NOT wearing a mask and is within 3 ft of a confirmed positive student/child who is also not wearing a mask, or within 6 ft. of a mask less adult who is confirmed positive.

In case of close contact (without masks) with someone who has tested positive: 

    • If the student is unvaccinated, quarantine them at home for five days and contact their health care provider. 
    • If the student is fully vaccinated and not displaying any symptoms, they can return to school and must remain masked at all times. 

Below is the link and QR code for parents to submit their child’s proof of vaccination, deadline to submit March 31st:

  • Click HERE access the form 
  • Sign in using the student ID number and date of birth
  • Fill out the required information, including your email (e-card will be sent to that email)
  • Upload an image of the proof of vaccination (card, IMMTrac2, document from medical provider)
  • Submit the form
