District 186 families! Any pre -k , kindergarten, 6th grade, 9th grade, 12th grade and new students to District 186 - please turn in your child's proof of physical and immunization information as soon as possible. If your child’s physical and immunizations have not yet been turned in or scheduled, your child will be excluded from school on September 6, 2022. Because of the demand for appointments and immunization in our community, the Board of Education is allowing school nurses to accept documentation of your child’s scheduled physical and immunizations so that they may remain in school. This documentation of an appointment must be brought to the school on Sept. 6 in order for a student to remain. Appointments must be scheduled between now and October 14, 2022. After October 15 all students who do not have proper documentation of completed immunizations and physicals will be excluded from school. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school.

A beautiful bench was dedicated and two trees were planted in Lincoln Park in honor of Chuck Flamini. Lanphier High School teacher, Scott Metzke, collected donations from current and former LHS staff to purchase the bench and trees. Yesterday ,friends and family gathered for the dedication at Lincoln Park. Chuck left his mark on our community as a friend, teacher, union activist, school administrator and school board member. You can visit the Flamini bench in Lincoln park right beside the playground area. "I picked this spot because it faces towards Lanphier High School" said Scott Metzke.
