Lynhaven ABC reminders

 

With the holidays approaching, students are getting more excited about vacations, traveling, and the fun celebrations that are taking place at school. In this time, it's still important to follow our school ABCs of Acting Responsibly, Behaving Respectufully and Caring for all.

Disrespectful notes have been left on cars about parking and neighbors have had their garbage cans and gardening debris moved causing it to be unable to be picked up. This is unacceptable. We are modeling appropriate behavior for our students. As a reminder:
