Announcements

  • April 6 Update

    Good afternoon, Loon Lake Families,

    As you have perhaps already heard, the Governor held a press conference just a few moments ago where he has extended the statewide school closure through the end of the school year. 

    While this is hugely disappointing for all of us, this decision was made with all of our safety in mind.   The situation seems very unreal, and I’m not sure any of us could have imagined this reality back when we started this school year.  But one thing I know about the Loon Lake community, from working with our students and families for the past 7 years, is that we are tough.  Our kids are resilient.  Our families are strong.  Our community is in this together.  And this too shall pass.

    As we move forward, we at the Loon Lake School District will continue serve you to the best of our abilities.  We will keep food coming to you and we will continue to find ways to keep learning going.   We will keep in touch.  We will be here if you need us. 

    For now, take this time to hold your family close.  I will be back in touch soon. 

    Take good care –

    Brad

  • April 3 Update

    Good afternoon, Loon Lake Families,

    Just a quick check in today with each of you at the end of week number 3.  I truly hope this message finds you healthy and well. 

    Two quick updates for you today.  First, remember that next week is spring break, which means our office will be closed and no new learning packets will be available to pick up.  However, our food service delivery and pick up will continue uninterrupted.  So we will see many of you on Monday and Wednesday as we deliver or you pick up. 

    Second, if we were not living in this weird twilight zone, we would be holding our parent-teacher conferences yesterday and today.  Since we obviously cannot do that, we will be mailing your child’s most recent report card to you.  You should receive it early next week.  If you have any questions regarding your child’s report card or want to chat with your child’s teacher, please don’t hesitate to reach out. 

    Please let us know if you need anything at all.  Have a good weekend and stay safe and healthy. 

    I’ll talk to you soon –

    Brad

  • March 30 Update About Spring Break

    Loon Lake Families,

    A quick update on next week, which is marked on our calendars as spring break. 

    Originally, food service was not going to be available next week.  But the more we thought about this, the more we realized that we couldn’t just leave you hanging like that.  So, we are happy to let you know that we will be continuing our food service next week.  The process will be the same.  We will deliver and have pick up on Monday and Wednesday.  Huge thanks to our food service team, their helpers, and our bus drivers for their willingness to make this happen. 

    However, because my team struggles to take time off, I want them to have a spring break.  So, our office will be closed next week and no learning packets will be available for pick up.  The next learning packet pick up will be Monday, April 13th. 

    If you have any questions or need anything at all, please let us know. 

    Stay well, and we’ll talk to you soon. 

    Sincerely,

    Brad

  • March 27 Update

    Loon Lake Families,

    As always, I hope this message finds you healthy and well. 

    I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that these first two weeks of this school closure and COVID-19 stuff has felt more like 2 months.  But we’ve made it through together, and we will continue to do so. 

    As the weekend begins, I just wanted to touch base with you regarding four quick things for next week. 

    First, remember that food service delivery and pick up will take place on Monday and Wednesday.  Please reach out to us if you experience any difficulty or frustration getting the meals that you need.  Huge thanks to our food service staff and all of our helpers and our bus drivers for their hard work in getting our kids fed.

    Second, a reminder that new learning packets will be available for you to pick up beginning Monday at 9:00.  Huge thanks to our teachers for getting these together.  We hope you are finding them helpful.  Also, two quick side notes regarding learning.  First, we are continuing to add online learning resources that you may find helpful to our website homepage.  If you go to www.loonlakeschool.org, you will see them right there on the left.  And second, if picking up your child’s learning packet is not an option for your family for whatever reason, just let us know.  We can deliver it to you when we are out delivering meals.  Please don’t hesitate to request this. 

    Third, I want to let you know that if you purchased any chocolate during our last CPO fundraiser, that chocolate is available to pick up beginning on Monday at our school office, between the hours of 9:00 and 11:00.  If that time doesn’t work for you, that’s no problem.  Just call our office and we can set up a different time. 

    Fourth and finally, I think it’s important for all of us to step back, take a deep breath, and realize that this is a challenging time to be a human being.  The stress of the virus, the stress of keeping our loved ones safe, and the stress of adjusting to social distancing.  It can all be overwhelming, not to mention the impact on local business and our economy.   It is a lot to deal with.  As you have heard me say many times by now, the only way through this is together.  So to help us stay together, we are starting something at Loon Lake School that we call One Caring Adult.  Our goal is to make sure each family who has children attending Loon Lake Elementary has one caring adult reaching out to them at least once a week.  The purpose of this call is simply to stay connected, and also to see if there is anything you might need.  It could be an academic need, or a food need, or any other kind of need, including just talking to another person for a while to remind us that we aren’t alone.   

    If a weekly call like this sounds burdensome to you, no problem at all, just let us know and we won’t keep bugging you.  But we want to reach out and help in any way we can.  We will begin our phone calls next week. 

    Have a great weekend, stay healthy, and let us know if you need anything at all. 

    Talk to you soon –

    Brad

    Hello Loon Lake Families,

    Our first week of food delivery is in the books, and we just want to make sure it is going ok on your end.  Did you get the meals you need?  Do you have any questions?  Please, please let us know if there is something we can do to better serve your family. 

    Also, one quick side note.  if you are hesitant to accept help with meals because you do not want to take away from other families getting meals, you do not need to worry about this.  We have enough for every child in our community.  If school was in session, we would feed each kid, every day, that’s part of the deal.  So even if you are getting by just fine, we still have meals for your kids.  Please don’t think twice about getting food delivered or coming to pick it up.  That’s what it’s for. 

    Remember, next week we will deliver Monday and Wednesday, and pick up at our school will be Monday and Wednesday as well. 

    If you need anything at all, please let us know.  Take good care, stay safe, and stay healthy.  


    Sincerely,

    Brad
