Forestlawn is hosting Smile Programs...the mobile dentists on

April 24, 2018

We have invited the Smile Programs…the mobile dentists to coordinate on-site dental care at our school because we know how important taking care of your children’s teeth is to keeping them healthy. Best of all, your child can receive dental care at NO COST TO YOU, as Medicaid, CHIP and most other insurances cover 100% of prevention treatment.

Signing up your children to see the mobile dental team is an easy & convenient way for them to get necessary dental care. If you want your child to see the dentist on “Shine Your Smile Day,” all you have to do is fill out the dental permission slip and return it to the school.

Preschool & Kindergarten Registration- April 18th and 19th image Preschool & Kindergarten Registration- April 18th and 19th

Registration for preschool and kindergarten students will be held at Knollwood School.

We will be holding a mass registration on April 18th and 19th from 9am-11am and 1pm-3pm both days and at 6pm-8pm on the 18h only.  Please remember, your child must be age 5 by August 1st to enroll in Kindergarten.  If you are Open Enrolling your child, you must apply for Open Enrollment at the Board Office and be approved before you can register your child. Make sure you call 440-949-4234 to make an appointment to register after you have been approved and bring your open enrollment approval letter when you register.

We are excited to announce all-day kindergarten will be open to all students. All-day kindergarten has been in such high demand in the past that we have had to deny entrance for some students. Therefore, we have added these extra seats to accommodate our children and parents. Most importantly, it gives our children twice the exposure to reading, language arts, and math skills which will help them for their lifetime. We hope that you will take advantage of this added opportunity.

Cost will continue to be $2,000.00 and is payable monthly with a $200 deposit due at registration. Fee waivers are available for families who qualify.

Knollwood Elementary will also be offering half day preschool and half day kindergarten. While preschool school and full day kindergarten is tuition based. Half day kindergarten is tuition free, however there will be a one time school fee for workbooks, supplies, etc. payable in the fall. 

On the day of registration, you will need to bring your child's birth certificate, shot records, a signed Lease Agreement, Rental Agreement, Mortgage Statement or Purchase Agreement, (choose one), 2 proofs of residency, (utility bills sent to your home with your name and address on it), and custody papers if they apply. You will also need to bring your first payment if you're signing up for preschool on the day of registration.

Preschool is $1500.00 for the year. First payment of $150.00 is due at registration. Second payment will be due September 1st with the rest of the payments due on the 1st of every month. May will be the last payment. There is no school for preschool students on Wednesdays.

The hours for the all-day Kindergarten is 8:20am - 3:20pm. Half-day Pre-School and Kindergarten classes are 8:20am - 11:20am & 12:20pm - 3:20pm.

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. If you are volunteering as a classroom helper you do not need to do the following steps. Before volunteering for fieldtrips or other events where you may be in charge of a group of students,  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.

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.

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.

Please keep in mind as the school year begins, there will be procedures to the entry and dismissal at Forestlawn.  The entry bell for all students is at 8:20.

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.
