Lyndale Community School

The best academic programs honor the contributions and abilities of each individual child. At Lyndale School, our teachers and administrative team recognize this fact and strive to bring individualized attention to every student’s learning experience.

The Pleasant Pathway starts Friday October 3rd
Thursday, September 25, 2014 4:30 PM

We are excited to announce that again this year, all children on the regular education buses will be joining the renowned Lyndale Walking Bus route on Fridays along the Pleasant Pathway.

Starting Friday, October 3rd, all Lyndale School regular education buses will drop students at 38th and Pleasant where they will be met by Lyndale staff. Children will continue down Pleasant Avenue accompanied by staff and supported by parent volunteers and the school patrol. The Pleasant Pathway will run most Fridays until Thanksgiving Break (or later, if the weather is warm) and will resume in the spring.

International Walk to School Day is on Wednesday, October 8. We'll walk the Pleasant Pathway on Wednesday that week, not Friday.
