Dear Lynhaven Families, 

It is with very mixed emotions that I'm writing this. I want to share with you all that I have accepted a position at the Santa Clara County Office of Education and will be leaving my role as the Principal of Lynhaven. The timeline is dependent upon our finding a new Principal and there will be input meetings for the community and our staff which will be facilitated by our Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, Lena Bundtzen. The date is to be determined.

This was not an easy decision as I've been at Lynhaven for 10 years and started here as a Kindergarten teacher, became the Assistant Principal the next year, and the Principal the following year. I want to say thank you to the families who have been here through my time as Principal and to those who we've recently welcomed. Lynhaven will always be a special place to me and I'm grateful that I was a part of your children's lives. Once again, thank you! 

Please see the attached letter below.

The Family Engagement Institute at Foothill College is coming back to our Lynhaven community. We hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity to bond with other families, increase your knowledge and share information with others. The meetings are held in the evenings from 6:00-8:00 on Zoom and are well worth it!  Please see the flyer below for more information!

Do you have a student in grades 3rd-5th and would like for them to have some extra homework help or tutoring after school? I am excited to be partnering with FEV Tutor to provide FREE virtual tutoring to your child if you find it helpful.

If tutoring is not something you need, they also offer drop-in homework help. This is a program that is paid for through our school site and is open to students in grades 3-5. Because it is virtual, you must have a device at home (iPad, tablet, laptop, phone) that can access the internet. 

If your child attends our after school Campbell Care program, they can access the homework help or tutoring through the use of the chromebooks that we have there. Please see below for more information!

We are so excited to be preparing to welcome our students back for the 2021-22 school year! Last night we had a wonderful turnout for our Kindergarten Orientation! Thank you to all of the families who came out. 

Here are a few important reminders for everyone: 

-School begins next Thursday, 8/19, 8:05 for all students. The gates open at 7:55. Students are not allowed on campus before 7:55 as there is no supervision. 

-You must have your child's STUDENT ID to find out your class next Wednesday after 4:00 on this website. We do not post student names. The story title will be called CLASS LISTS 2021-22

-Dismissal is 2:10 for TK-3 and 2:15 for 4th and 5th grades. 

-Wednesdays are shortened days with TK-3 dismissed at 1:10 and 4th and 5th dismissed at 1:15, same start time 

-Parents will be allowed to walk their child(ren) to class at drop off but must leave campus within 10 minutes as the gates will be locked. Masks are required when on campus. 

-Parents must wait for their child(ren) at the gates after school, not at their classroom doors or on campus. 

--We ask that families leave campus at dismissal and not congregate in the front or back.  Staff is still working and children playing outside of classrooms can be very distracting. The play structures are off limits before and after school and we encourage you to schedule playdates with friends off campus to allow for students to play. 

-Please park respectfully in the neighborhood at drop off and pick up. and follow the directions in the parking lot for the drop off and drive through lanes. 

Thank you for following our school expectations so that we can ensure the safety of your child at school. See you all soon!
