Submit an Application for Education Benefits
Monday, October 15, 2018 8:00 AM

We're very excited that Lyndale will continue to be a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) school this year! CEP schools provide school breakfasts and lunches to ALL students at NO CHARGE while they are enrolled in a CEP school during the 2018-19 school year.

We'd like to remind all Lyndale families to submit an Application for Education Benefits (formerly known as the Free and Reduced Lunch form). All families in the district -- even those with students enrolled at CEP schools -- are asked to complete this form, regardless of income or eligibility. The information gathered has an impact on our school budget.

Please complete forms by December 1 to be included in school budget calculations for next school year. You can complete the form online through your SchoolCafe account: Paper applications will also be sent in the mail. You can find more information here: Minneapolis Public Schools Application for Educational Benefits.

Please contact the school if you have any questions. Thanks!

Lyndale will celebrate National Walk/Bike to School Day this Friday, October 12, to coincide with the Pleasant Pathway walk to school. A handful of parent volunteers are needed to walk with students to school from the bus drop off at 38th St. & Pleasant Ave., to help at intersections along the way, and to hand out stickers. It's a great way to start the day! If you can help, please meet at school at 8:10 this Friday morning. Thanks!

The Pleasant Pathway starts this Friday, September 21
Tuesday, September 18, 2018 2:00 PM

We are excited to announce that again this year all children on the regular education buses will be joining the Lyndale Walking Bus route on Fridays along the Pleasant Pathway. The Pleasant Pathway is an opportunity for Lyndale students to wake up their brains by walking to school!

Starting this Friday, September 21, all regular education buses will drop students off at 38th and Pleasant, where they will be met by Lyndale staff. From there, students and staff will walk the four blocks together into school. The Pleasant Pathway will run Fridays until Thanksgiving Break and will resume in the spring.

Parents and children who do not take the school bus are welcome and encouraged to walk with us each week. We meet on 38th St. about 8:20am. If you drive, please park away from 38th St. and Pleasant Avenue, so you do not block the school buses.

All Lyndale students on regular education buses participate in the Pleasant Pathway. If you have questions, would like to volunteer, or do NOT want your child to participate in the Pleasant Pathway, please contact Assistant Principal Hunter, 612-668-4017,
