The Pleasant Pathway starts this Friday morning, September 16.

The Pleasant Pathway is an opportunity for Lyndale students to wake up their brains by walking to school. The Pleasant Pathway runs each Friday, weather permitting, from now until the end of November. School buses will drop students off at Lake Country School, located on the corner of 38th and Pleasant. From there, students and staff will walk the four blocks together into school. Student safety is our number one priority at Lyndale - if weather conditions are of concern, the Pleasant Pathway will be cancelled for the day.

All Lyndale students participate in the Pleasant Pathway. If you do not want your child to participate in the Pleasant Pathway, please call Lyndale School at 612-668-4000.
