Exciting news! We’ve partnered with ParentPowered to offer an evidence-based parenting curriculum to families at no cost. 

Families receive text messages with fun facts and easy tips to help their children learn and grow. Messages are shared 52 weeks a year, so learning continues even when school is on summer break. 

Families who receive Parent Powered texts feel more involved with their children's learning and children show great boosts in learning too.

Check out the overview flyers below:

Dear Lynhaven Families, 

While it easy to be caught up in the rush of morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up, we ask that you always prioritize safety. Drivers need to follow all the rules of the road, including the posted School Zone speed limit of 25 mph. 

Just as you want drivers to be safe near your homes, our Lynhaven neighbors ask that all of our drivers are safe near their homes. 

Every instructional minute does count. No instructional minutes count more than each of us doing our part to keep the community safe. 

Want to report unsafe driving or traffic violations on the city streets near school? Please report them to the City of San Jose at (408) 277-8900. Want to request a speed monitor from the City of San Jose? Please contact them at (408) 535-3850

In partnership,

Ms. Callaway-Wilson,

Principal
