Dear Frank Love Families,
Can you believe there are just 2 weeks and 1 day left in this school year?! We have been hard at work learning important skills this year, both academic and social-emotional skills. And while the end of the year is looming, we will continue to focus our energies on these skills until the very last day. We are so proud of each and every student for the effort they put forth and for the growth we have been so honored to witness. We are incredibly proud of our Frank Love Cheetahs!
Sunny days and end of year activities bring a buzz of excitement around the school. Here is just a snapshot of some end-of-year happenings:
- Kindergarten is celebrating the final 26 days of school with a letter of the day. Next week’s letters are M, N, O, P and Q.
- 1st and 2nd grades have individual class “funness” happening, so be sure to check in with your student.
- 3rd grade is wrapping up their biography projects. The things we have seen are incredible!
- 4th grade is working hard on their Art Days projects- you will be wowed!
- 5th grade is getting ready for their celebration of success as they prepare to transition to middle school.
Our Spring Book Fair is running all next week!
And, of course, we have Field Day coming up on Friday, June 16th from 1:30 - 3 pm. Please consider volunteering for this fun-filled event!
The weekend looks to be filled with sunshine! Hip, hip, hooray!!

Current Medication at School
We are making plans to close out the school year. This includes ensuring any medication your child has in the Health Room will get home in a safe manner. Please make arrangements to pick up the medication at school. If the only medication your child has is an inhaler you may have your child pick up the inhaler to take home. All other medications need to be picked up by a parent/guardian. We cannot keep any medications over the summer. Medications for life threatening conditions cannot be picked up until after school on the last day your student is attending this year.
Any medication left in the building after 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, June 20th will be destroyed.
The Department of Health Covid Guidelines Decision Tree
Covid Symptom and Exposure Decision Tree
Even minor illness symptoms may indicate a Covid infection. A covid test is recommended. Regardless of results, students need to stay home until symptoms have greatly improved, and no fever, vomiting, or diarrhea within 24 hours of returning to school, without the use of medication to control those symptoms.
End of school year iPad & Chromebook preparation:
For current Kindergarten and 1st Grade families:
Families of students currently in grades K and 1 who wish to check out an iPad for summer learning need to indicate so by completing the form at http://go.nsd.org/techoptin by Friday, June 9th. Students and families are expected to care for the device and use it only for learning purposes. The device must be returned to school on or before the first day of the 2023-24 school year. If the form is not completed an iPad will not be sent home for the summer.
For current 2nd-5th Grade families:
2nd-5th Grade students will keep their assigned devices over the summer for use next school year (including students shifting to middle school). Students and families are expected to care for the device and use it only for learning purposes. The device must be returned to school on or before the first day of the 2023-24 school year.
Families may not need or want to take their student’s device home over the summer. Families who wish to opt out of keeping their student’s assigned device will need to indicate that they are “opting out” by completing the form at https://go.nsd.org/optout by Friday, June 9th. When students return to school in the Fall, any student who does not have an assigned device will be assigned one for school year learning.
For Northshore School District Withdrawing families:
Families who are withdrawing from Northshore are expected to return any technology devices assigned to their student, including computers, tablets, hotspots and all accessories such as bags and chargers. Our school will be collecting devices on Monday, June 12th. A classroom device will be available for student use during the last week of school. Withdrawing students who do not return their devices and accessories will be issued a fine for replacement.

How students start and end their day is just as important as their experience during the school day. There are many opportunities within our community for parents who need support for their children either before and/or after school. Champions is one of many care options, and is located on Frank Love Elementary campus. Champions has space in both before school and after school programs for this school year and next school year.
If you are concerned about the financial burden of childcare, there are resources for that. You may qualify for tuition assistance.
Reach out to Frank Love Champions Site Director, Aubrie Seek, to learn more.
