Please read below for a few updates and reminders. Tomorrow is the 8th graders fundraiser through Lou Malnati’s (Bucktown/Wicker Park, South Loop and Lincoln Square locations), so might be a good day to order pizza . Find out more details below.
Reminder - Friday is a School Improvement Day and a non-attendance day for students.
Have a great day,
Drop Off Reminders – Please remember that parents are not to park in the staff lots. It makes traffic flow harder and presents safety concerns for our students. In addition, do not let your student out of the car on the street. It is incredibly unsafe. Please park in the lot or at Target and walk over using the crossing guards we have posted.
COVID 19 Vaccination Event at Skinner North – On Friday, February 11, 2022, we will have a vaccination clinic set up at our school. This flier contains codes/links for the appointments and consent.
A medical team will return to our location three weeks later to provide access to 2nd doses.
Parents/guardians of 5-17yo must provide consent and are encouraged to be present with their child at this time. They will have a supply of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for 5-11 yo and 25 appointments available for boosters.
Mobile Dental Event – A consent form was sent home with students and also available at this link for the event. Please complete the consent form and return to the school if you would like your student to receive dental services at the school on March 2. The consent form has further details about what is included.
8th Grade Fundraiser – On Wednesday, Jan. 26, our 8th graders have teamed up with Lou Malnati’s (Lincoln Square, Bucktown/Wicker Park, South Loop) for a fundraiser. Order on the day and mention Skinner North and 20% of those sales will go towards the 8th graders trip to Washington, DC. You can order online and use the code FUNDFSN22. See this flier for more information.
