Lannon staff update

Lannon families, we are excited to welcome new faces to our staff for the 2018-19 school year. Additionally, and excitedly, two additional sections were recently added to Lannon at 2nd and 3rd grade. These sections were allocated by Hamilton’s School Board and School District Administration to help support greater enrollment at these grade levels. This means Lannon will have three sections of first, second, third, and fifth grade, and two sections of kindergarten and fourth grade this year. Please see below for a breakdown of teachers and grade levels, as well as brief bios on new staff joining the LannFam this year.

Important news from the Health Room

Immunization – Wisconsin law requires parents to provide updated records on their children’s immunizations including polio, hepatitis B, MMR and varicella. Students entering grade 6 are also required to have had one dose of Tdap. Students must be in compliance with the required immunizations as of the first day of school. Parents should make their child’s school aware of any recently received immunizations. The schedule for required immunizations can be found at http://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/publications/p44021.pdf. Questions about the immunization schedule should be directed to the child’s physician or the Waukesha County Public Health Department.

Medication

  • If possible, please schedule medications to be given at home rather than during school hours.
  • Medications that will be administered or kept in the health room must be brought in by the parent/guardian in the original container.
  • Each medication must be accompanied by a separate Medication Permission Form. These forms can be found on the district website: https://www.hamilton.k12.wi.us/district/district-forms-annual-notices/ (Student asthma inhaler permission, Student Epinephrine auto-injector permission, and Student medication permission)
  • If your student plans to self-carry an inhaler or epinephrine during the school year, a medication permission form must be completed and kept on file in the health room.
  • Please provide medications in small quantities.
  • Medications must be picked up by the parent/guardian prior to the last day of school or it will be discarded

Convenience of recurring lunch fund payments now available

A new convenient feature for recurring lunch payments is available to parents who want to ensure their children’s accounts won’t run out of funds and avoid automated messages regarding lunch balances.

Parents can now choose to:

  • make a specific recurring payments each month; or
  • replenish their child’s account automatically when it reaches a minimum balance.

Families can activate these payment options by going to the payment section in Infinite Campus. The recurring payments option is at the top of the page. Then choose: child for whom payment will be made > add > either “monthly” or “low balance” option.

The recurring payment feature will be turned off in June each year and must be reset the following school year.
