Dear Lyndale Families,
I hope everyone has been enjoying this amazing fall weather we have been having! We have a short week, so I will keep this letter brief.
MEA Break: Students will not have school Wednesday, October 14th through Friday, October 16th
Parent Teacher Conferences: Tuesday, October 13th from 3:30-7:30pm and on Wednesday, October 14th from 8am-4pm. Conferences will be held on Google Meets. Families should use their children’s classroom link/codes to access the conference. Our goal of conferences is to get to know your family and learn how we can best support your child through Distance Learning. Teachers will have some data and course work to share as well.
If you are unable to access your child’s conference, please call the school at 612-668-4000 or email your child’s teacher right away. If you receive a call from a 617 area code during the time of the conference, it could be the teacher calling from the Google meet if you were not able to log in.
Material Pickup: We will have a material pickup for all grades on Thursday, October 22nd from 2-4pm and Friday, October 23rd from 12-3pm. Families can come at any time during these windows that works best for you.
Reminder: Please complete the Application for Education Benefits form: All families enrolled in Minneapolis Public Schools should complete an Application for Educational Benefits each year. We need every Lyndale family to complete this form. We still have about 255 students who need to complete the form. Staff will start making calls next week as a reminder. Here is a link: https://nutritionservices.mpls.k12.mn.us/application
We are partners in your child’s education. If you have any questions, please call me at 612-668-4005 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a great week!
Principal, Lyndale Community School
