Friday Notes 7/31/20

As summer heads into August, we will begin sending weekly Principal Notes to supply you with up-to-date information on the start of school and ways to prepare for our opening on August 25. We have a number of things to share with you today.

Time to Make the Donuts : Grace Lutheran School is facilitating the donut making and sales at the famous Oak Park Farmer’s Market tomorrow morning. The donut station is at the site of Pilgrim Church on the corner of Scoville and Lake Street. You don’t actually need to enter the full market to purchase donuts. Stop by tomorrow morning and enjoy fellowship with other Grace families while enjoying some fresh home-made donuts. All donuts are made fresh in the morning, the first crew arrives at 4:00am.

Face Masks for School : As outlined in the reopening plan, the ISBE & IDPH require all people age 3 and older to wear masks while in the school building. Here is some information for you from the CDC regarding mask wearing and cleaning.

The GPO is making available Grace Lutheran Vikings masks for purchase. These masks are comfortable and made from tightly woven two sided cotton. Three sizes available kids, adult and XL. Machine washable. Adjustable ear loops. $6.00/mask. Look out for the order form soon!!!
