We need your support in keeping our school playgrounds safe before and after school. Currently, students are not allowed to play on the playgrounds before school due to no supervision. Unfortunately, beginning on Monday, March 20, 2017, students will not be allowed to play on the play structure after school, after 2:30 and 1:30 on Wednesdays. Students who wish to play, will be allowed to after our after school care programs are over at 6:00. Students can not play on the playground while they wait for parents to pick them up. All students need ot come to the office or the front of the school if they are waiting on pick up. This is a safety issue and we appreciate your support.
There was a typo on the packet that went home this week regarding our Walk-A-Thon on 3/31/17. IMPORTANT: This year's T-shirts will be awarded to students who collect a minimum of $15 in sponsors/donations for the walk-a-thon fundraiser. If you have already turned in your child's form, we will contact you. Sorry for the confusion! Thank you for supporting Lynhaven's WalkAThon! We hope you'll be out to volunteer and walk with our students!

Please remember that there is no stopping in the Red Zone in front of the school to drop off or pick up students. This stopping for even a few minutes, causes a back up of people in the parking lot and turning onto the street. We have seen people making U-turns in the middle of the street and this is ILLEGAL. Please respect the red zone and do not stop here to drop off or pick up students. Unfortunately, parking enforcement has been notified of this and will be making stops at our school. This is about the safety of our students and families who walk or drive to school. Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Strategic Plan Committee noted progress during its review of strategic goals and objectives, including STEAM, standards and student support.

The State of California is field-testing a new school accountability tool that uses multiple measures to report school performance and growth.
The California School Dashboard is a new tool from the State of California that replaces the old Academic Performance Index (API). It will provide parents, educators, and the public with important information they can use to evaluate schools and school districts in an easy-to-understand report card format.
The California School Dashboard is a critical piece of California’s new school accountability and continuous improvement system. A 5-minute video explains how the new tool works and what it looks like.
