Dear Lyndale Families,
I hope everyone had a nice and restful MEA break. Teachers reported that conferences went really well and they enjoyed getting to know each of you a little better. Thank you for adjusting to virtual conferences this year and any hiccups that you may have encountered.
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. Pick up will be outside the gym doors, just west of the playground.
Communication from School: In an effort to streamline our communication to families, we want to let you know what sources of communication you will see.
Weekly Letter from the Principal: This letter will be sent out via email on Tuesday evening. The letter will contain any important announcements or updates that pertain to the whole school. At the end of the letter you will see a “upcoming events” section to help your calendars.
Lyndale Website: This is continuously updated with the weekly letters, announcements, information, etc.
Eagle News: Newsletter sent out at the beginning of each month that gives a high level overview of the grade levels, letter from the principal, and any other community announcements.
Staff Updates: Mr. Mohamed, the Lyndale Family Liaison, is retiring after 25 years of serving Lyndale students and families. He has been a pillar of the community. Please join me in congratulating him on his retirement!
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.
