Welcome to Lake Bluff Elementary School!

At Lake Bluff, we prepare students to meet the challenges of tomorrow by providing an education responsive to each child's talent and abilities in a nurturing environment. Our school community values character education as well as academic growth. Our approach focuses on the whole child. Our innovative and energetic teachers and staff assist our students in developing the skills they will need to be life long learners. Lake Bluff is fortunate to have an active parent organization that supports our school community through direct classroom volunteering, parent & student social activities, artists-in-residence programs, parent forums and so much more.

Did you know that Lake Bluff was named a State School of Character in 2012 by WCEP and a National School of Character by the National CEP at a National convention in Washington DC? Lake Bluff was the only school in the state of Wisconsin to receive this recognition in 2012 and one of about 25 in the entire nation. Our status as a National School of Character is awarded for five years. Click HERE to read more about this honor.

Shorewood School District School Safety Information
Posted 02/18/2018 01:03PM

Message from Dr. Bryan Davis, Shorewood Schools Superintendent:

At the start of every school year, staff engage in discussions about safety procedures and plans. In October, Atwater, Lake Bluff, Shorewood Intermediate School, and Shorewood High School participated in a School Safety Week. During this time, all schools practiced various safety drills, including lockdown and evacuation procedures. In the event of an active threat, we would use our lockdown and/or evacuation procedures to keep our students and staff safe. The message we send to all students is the importance of listening to the nearest adult. In the event of an evacuation, the District will coordinate with law enforcement to initiate a reunification plan. Infinite Campus, the District's student information system, will be used to notify families about the situation and where to meet their students. Families will receive an Infinite Campus message via email, phone text, and/or a phone call. While each school does have an evacuation site, that site may change depending on the context of the situation.

Due to the uniqueness of the SHS campus, additional steps have been taken to increase awareness, procedures, and plans in the event an active threat event happens on campus. At the start of the school year, staff are trained in A.L.I.C.E. procedures. Commonly referred to as "run, hide, fight," A.L.I.C.E. training helps equip staff members with the necessary tools to make a decision for the students in their care, depending on the exact situation unfolding at the time. If an active threat event occurs on campus, staff know they should try to escape campus (run), if they are unable to escape, they should attempt to hide from the threat (hide), and, if they are confronted by someone who wants to cause harm they should attempt to not allow this to happen (fight).

If, at any time, you or your children are worried about the safety of another student, adult, or any potential threat, please let school staff or Shorewood Police know immediately. The non-­‐emergency number for the Shorewood Police Department is 414-­‐351-­‐9900. In the case of an immediate emergency, dial 911.
