At Lakehill Preparatory School, parents play a significant role in the daily lives of students. Through involvement in the Parent Faculty Club and in the classrooms, parents are invited and encouraged to be involved in their children’s educational journeys. Lakehill prides itself on the wide variety of activities provided, many of which would not be possible without the strong commitment of our parents.

Health and Wellness
The health and wellness of our students, faculty, and staff at Lakehill Preparatory School is our primary concern. As we enter cold and flu season, we need to work together to combat the spread of these viruses. Please get your child the flu vaccine if you have not already done so. Lakehill asks that if your child is sick or demonstrating flu-like symptoms such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, muscle aches, cough, sore throat, runny or stuffy nose, headaches, chills, or fatigue to please keep them home and seek medical attention. Students must be free of these symptoms for 24 hours before returning to school.
Please encourage your child to take measures to prevent the spread of viruses. Encourage children to wash their hands frequently with soap and water and to use hand sanitizer when a sink is not readily available. Teach them to cover their coughs and sneezes, avoid touching their face, and refrain from sharing food and drinks with friends. If your child has been confirmed with the flu or a virus, please report it to the Lakehill office as soon as possible. Thank you for helping us keep Lakehill a safe and healthy environment!

Ebola Fact Sheet
On 9/30/2014, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) confirmed the first travel-associated case of Ebola to be diagnosed in the United States. CDC and partners are taking precautions to prevent spread of Ebola within the United States. CDC is working with other U.S. government agencies, the World Health Organization (WHO), and other domestic and international partners and has activated its Emergency Operations Center to help coordinate technical assistance and control activities with partners.
Lakehill will continue to monitor the situation and follow recommendations from CDC and Dallas County Health and Human Services.
