Message From The Principal
We have some important reminders/requests:
- If you have a student bus card and have not attached it to their backpack, please do so. All students, even those who do not ride the bus, have been issued a card. This is the most efficient way to scan students into the building each day (confirming that the self-certification has been completed at home). While we have a backup system for scanning in students without a card, their transition to their homeroom is much quicker with the card attached to their backpack. Thank you!
- Please continue to complete the self-certification, every day, for students before they come to school. Ideally, these are completed daily by 8am (but no later than 8:30am). Students for whom the self-certification has not been completed are not able to enter the building and proceed to their homeroom until a Lyon staff member is able to check them in. See the District 34 Health & Safety Protocols for more details.
- Please continue to communicate in advance with your child’s teacher regarding student transportation plans. Teachers direct students at the end of their day to the bus, car line, or to meet an adult to walk, and we rely on accurate information from you to get students safely where they need to go. Teachers are unable to check email regularly during their time with students, so changes in transportation plans during the school day are discouraged. In the event of an unavoidable change for a student, please call our main office (847-998-5045) to share that information.
Conferences with your child’s teachers are soon approaching! These meetings will be held online this fall. Be on the lookout for more details to come directly from your child’s teacher. These valuable conversations are an important milestone in our year, and we appreciate you setting aside this time to connect with your child’s teacher. A simple list of questions and answers related to conferences can be found in this month’s newsletter.
Thank you for all of the ongoing kind words and support - they are greatly appreciated! Take care and stay well.
