Letter from the Principal

Happy Friday Frank Love Family,

My heart is so full from having the opportunity to to see so many students and families during the FLE parade on Monday. Thank you for coming out to wave hello and hold up the wonderful homemade signs of encouragement and love. The staff shared that the timing of the parade to see students and families was just perfect.  You all filled them with enough love and encouragement to help them finish the school year with energy and enthusiasm.

This time of year is the season for transitions. I want to share with you that the following staff will be leaving Frank Love due to lower enrollment projections or to pursue other opportunities.

  • Aileen Okrent, Kindergarten
  • Ashley Faver, 1st grade teacher 
  • Rochelle Burns, 2nd grade teacher
  • Lindsey Benedetti, 3rd grade teacher
  • Jesslyn Freeman Correa, 4th grade teacher
  • Sara Ressler, 4th grade teacher
  • Robyn Lynn Sprunger, EL/LAP teacher
  • Ashley Bolof, Special Ed Para
  • Susan Olmos, Music Teacher
  • Katrin Vince, PE Teacher
  • Andrea Zager, Librarian

We are so sad to have to say goodbye to them. We care deeply about each individual and are grateful for their contributions to our school.  We wish them well and they will forever be a part of our Frank Love family.

We continue to plan for the end of the school year. Detailed information will be shared on the following topics once we have plans completed. Thank you for patience as we work to finalize well thought out and organized plans.

  • Pick up of student belongings
  • Drop off of school materials
  • End of year activities/celebrations
  • Report cards

Since Monday is a holiday, Monday's reading lessons will be taught on Tuesday. Please plan to have your child engage in the reading lesson on Tuesday.  Your child's teacher has likely already communicated the plan or will do so soon. If your child receives specialized services, they will engage in lessons with their specialized teachers (Special Education, English Language, Learning Assistance Program) on Tuesday.

Have a wonderful three day weekend!

Katy French, Principal and the FL Staff

Accessing the FLE Food Pantry in May

We recognize that some families may be experiencing hardships related to the food and grocery access during this district closure. Please complete this form or email me, Sarah Albertson at salbertson@nsd.org if your family would benefit from access to our school food pantry items. I will reach out to you over the phone once your request is made and organize the details for food drop off.  We are only providing porch drop off at this time to limit possible exposures.

Many thanks,

A Note from the FLE Health Room and the Immunity Community of Washington

COVID-19 and Immunizations

We know that the current situation with COVID-19 is unnerving, and that each day brings new realities and challenges. WithinReach remains committed to the health of families in Washington State, and as your partner, is working to ensure you get access to the resources you need. Please reach out to us if we can assist you in applying for health insurance, SNAP, ORCA LIFT, or to learn more about WIC benefits, early childhood development services, or where to find an immunization clinic.

You can reach us by calling our Help Me Grow Washington Hotline at 1-800-322-2588 – if you have to leave a message, we’ll call you back as soon as possible. Or, you can contact us through the online form on our website, ParentHelp123.org.

We would like to share these resources for parents and healthcare providers on vaccinating during COVID-19.

Parents – Please always check with your child’s healthcare provider for the latest recommendations! This information is constantly changing and we will do our best to keep it up to date.

For Parents & Caregivers

Should I take my child in for vaccines during COVID-19?

Public health is a team effort. While healthcare workers are working diligently in order for us to get through the COVID-19 pandemic, you can help, too. Vaccinating young children (especially babies birth to 24 months) on time is the best way to protect them from vaccine preventable diseases.

The Washington State Department of Health (DOH) recommends that routine vaccination should continue. This ensures that our communities remain free of vaccine preventable diseases and that individuals are as healthy as possible. If routine vaccination is postponed, we could be faced not only with the COVID-19 pandemic but also an outbreak of vaccine preventable diseases, like measles. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has provided additional guidance on immunizations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If a healthcare clinic can provide only limited well-child visits, healthcare providers are encouraged to prioritize newborn care and vaccination of infants and young children (through 24 months of age) when possible. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and DOH are monitoring the situation and may provide additional guidance in the future.

Some healthcare providers may not be able to provide well-child visits for all patients in their clinic or may be able to conduct visits by telephone or video. The best thing to do is call your doctor’s office before you go to find out what precautions they are taking to keep children safe. Together, you can make the best decision for your child.
