Frank Love Families,
What a great turnout we had for curriculum night. If you were able to attend, we are so glad to have had the opportunity to connect with you. We hope you were able to connect with someone new or were able to connect with old friends.
We’ve heard that the video sent last week was not viewable. We’ve fixed the link and here it is. 2023-24 Curriculum Night Message from Principals
One of our school goals is to be more intentional in our partnership with you. We invite you to consider connecting with your student’s teacher if you have an interest, talent, passion to share with your childs’ classroom. Students’ learning is enhanced when they are able to see how what they are learning connects to the world outside of school.
We hope you enjoy the rainless weekend!

Supporting students to do their best in school is a collaborative effort. Families, students and staff play an important role. Help us learn how to make the school experience as positive and engaging as possible by sharing your feedback to the questions in this survey.
Thank you for the partnership.
We will be starting a new process for parents when students arrive and leave school. Please look out for an iPad on the front counter starting Monday, October 2nd for parents/guardians to sign in/out students. Thank you for your supporting the front office in saving money on paper!
PACE (Parents Active in Cooperative Education) is an elementary enrichment program offered by the Northshore School District for children and starts in the 1st grade.
The hallmarks of PACE include an enhanced educational experience due to high parent involvement, enrichment activities, encouragement for students to become self-motivated learners and a strong sense of community among families. PACE is located at three sites with feeder patterns from all Northshore elementary schools. Families commit to a minimum of 80 hours per year of program support. Work may be either in the classroom or outside the classroom, based on parent's availability and interest.
To find out if PACE is a good fit for your family and to learn more about the enrollment process, you are invited to attend the PACE Information Night/Open House at Lockwood Elementary Tuesday, October 17, from 7:00 – 8:30PM.
Parking Lot Safety
Our parking lot and surrounding neighborhood is very busy at drop off and pick up time. For the safety of our students and staff we would like to remind our car loop families of the following rules:
When entering the Frank Love you must drive up 224th from Meridian and enter the parking lot by turning right only. NO LEFT TURNS INTO OUR PARKING LOT.
When exiting the parking lot, you can only turn right onto 224th Street. NO LEFT TURNS OUT OF OUR PARKING LOT.
We have several handicapped parking spots along our car loop. Please make sure you are not blocking these parking spots while you are making your way through the car loop line. There are 2 in front of the office area and 1 right in the corner as you make your way in front of the office.
Our car loop/parking lot is very busy in the morning at drop off and in the afternoon at pickup. Please approach our parking lot slowly and with patience and kindness.
After School Pick-Up Protocol at Frank Love Elementary
Students should promptly return home after the bell. We do not have staff supervision after school hours. The playground is available for public use, however students must be supervised by a parent/guardian if they want to stay after school to play.
Cheetah Pass spots are reserved for families who need additional assistance at pick up and drop off. If your family qualifies for a Cheetah Pass, one will be given to you by your student's teacher at the beginning of the year.
When parking in areas outside of the main parking lot, please be sure you are not blocking driveways or mailboxes in our surrounding neighborhoods.

Bags, Bags, Library Bags!
You can help your Cheetah Reader build a system for carrying and storing library books with a simple canvas or reusable shopping bag. They can use it over and over and it can help students remember when to bring books back to the library. Thanks for your help and support of our Cheetah Readers!

VISION AND HEARING SCREENING at Frank Love Elementary Thursday, October 5th- Please note date has been corrected
Each year in Northshore schools, students in grades Kindergarten, 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 receive hearing and vision screenings. We are currently scheduled for vision and hearing screenings on October 5th.

Staying Home When Sick
Students with one or more potential COVID symptoms (fever, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, cough, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, sore throat, congestion, or runny nose) are required to stay home and test for COVID-19. Home antigen tests are recommended. Students with one or more symptoms need a negative COVID test AND a significant improvement in symptoms prior to returning to school. You do not need to report negative tests to the school nurse.
Please see the Department of Health’s COVID Symptom and Exposure Flowchart for Schools at the following link for more information about steps to follow for symptoms or exposures:
If your child is sick with an illness other than COVID, please make sure they do not return to school until symptoms have subsided. Students must be fever-free for 24 hours without fever reducing medication and no vomiting/diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school.
Thank you for helping to keep Frank Love Elementary healthy and safe.
