Lost and Found

Lost and found is overflowing. Come in before school is out for the summer to claim your lost treasures. After school is out all items will either be donated or put into the uniform exchange.

2023 Summer Meals: Summer Eats MN


I’m writing on behalf of Hunger Impact Partners, a non-profit organization working with the Minnesota Department of Education to promote free summer meals for kids across the state. We are reaching out to you to request your help in getting the word out on the different ways kids and the adults in their lives can find free summer meal sites.

We are targeting schools, community organizations and others so together we can increase participation in this important nutrition program for kids. We’ve made this easy by including the information below on a mobile app called Free Meals for Kids. Please note that although these tools are being updated daily, they will not be totally up-to-date until the school year ends. Many sites are still working to finalize their schedules so don’t worry -- the app will be fully operational in time for summer break!

It would be great if you would include information on summer meals and promote the Free Meals for Kids mobile App in your current communication efforts through handouts, newsletters, websites, and electronic mailings in advance of the official kick-off of summer.  Here is a link to information flyers with several translations:


No registration or prior sign-up is necessary for most sites. The sites which require prior registration are clearly marked on the site information. There are also free serving sites across the state at school, parks, recreation centers, community centers, and libraries. All kids up to age 18 can locate the nearest site, show up at the right time, and eat.

Download the free app via the app store on your smartphone, simply search "Free Meals for Kids”

If your student has medication or supplies in the Health Office, these will be sent home with them on the last day of school. If your student will not be in attendance on the last day, or you would like to make alternate plans for picking up your student's medications, please send an email to Nurse Tanya (tnelson@isla.school).

Please keep in mind that we need updated orders for the start of every school year. If your student takes medication or has an Emergency Health plan for asthma, seizures, allergies, diabetes or other health conditions; we will need new physician orders at the start of school in the fall. Summer months are a great time to see healthcare providers, get updated orders and catch up on any missing immunizations. These forms can be emailed to Nurse Tanya (tnelson@isla.school), turned in at the Open House in late August, or submitted by the first day of school. Student OTC or prescription medications for the 2023-24 school year can also be dropped off in the Health Office at the Open House, or on the first day of school. Any prescription medication should be in the original, labeled pharmacy bottle; and OTC medications should be in the original, labeled packaging. The required 'Authorization for Medication Administration' form can be found on the Health Services page of ISLA's website.

Immunization Reminder: All students must show proof of receiving the required immunizations before enrolling in MN public or charter schools; or submit medical or non-medical exemption paperwork. By the start of Kindergarten, all students should have received 5 DTaP, 4 Polio, 3 Hepatitis B, 2 MMR and 2 Varicella doses. If you have questions about your student’s immunization status, please contact Nurse Tanya (tnelson@isla.school). An immunization form (which includes exemption paperwork) can be found on the Health Services page of ISLA's website.
