Retrieval of Student Belongings
Wednesday, May 27, 2020 8:00 PM

Families are being assigned a specific date and time window from June 3-5 to pick up a bag containing student belongings and return library books and band/orchestra instruments to the school. To ensure everyone stays safe during this process, families will drive up to DOOR 5 (Recess Door/Closest to the Playground) by heading Southbound on Pleasant Avenue towards the Parking Lot and stay in their vehicle while staff places their student's bag in their trunk.

All students will receive a free Lyndale School 2019-2020 yearbook in their bag of belongings!

**Please read the letter below from Principal Stauduhar for more specific details on the process.**

Eagle Families,

As we approach the end of the school year, I want to share with you details on when and how you will be able to retrieve your student's belongings that may have been left behind when school buildings were closed by Governor Walz.

Using safety precautions such as wearing gloves and masks, school staff will gather your student's belongings and place them in a bag(s) which will be labeled with your student's name.

Families are being assigned a specific date and time from June 3 - 5 to pick-up the bag(s) based on your student's last name as indicated in the chart below. Families can come at any point within that time span indicated in the chart [see above chart].

Families with more than one child at our school will get all their children's belongings on the same date, even if their last names are different. The pick-up date will be based on the child whose last name is closest to the start of the alphabet, for example, if your children's names were Jane Doe and Frank Smith, you would pick up both their belongings on Jane's date/time: June 3 between 9:30 and 11:30 am.

To ensure everyone stays safe during this process, families will need to stay in their vehicle and staff will place bags in the trunk--please make sure you have room in your trunk. Under no circumstance will families or students be allowed in the building. Families should drive up to DOOR 5 (Recess Door/Closest to the Playground) by heading Southbound on Pleasant Avenue towards the Parking Lot. Please be aware that other families will be picking up belongings at the same time and you should expect some wait time as vehicles move through the line during this process.

When staff approach your vehicle, please roll down your window a small amount to give them your student's name and open your trunk or back door (for vans) from your vehicle. Staff will stay a safe distance in respect of social distancing.

Finally, this is an opportunity for you to return any library books and/or musical instruments checked out by your student(s). It is very important that we get these back prior to the end of the school year.

All musical instruments should be returned to Lyndale as many will need routine maintenance and cleaning. Mr. Hadley will communicate to parents options for any 4th graders wishing to continue practice on their instrument over the break.

If you are unable to come to the school to get your student's belongings for any reason, please let us know by calling 612-668-4000 or emailing to john.alverson@mpls.k12.mn.us so we can work with you to get any items you may need or to let us know you'd like us to hold them at the school until we return to in-school learning. Please include the following information when you contact us:

  • Your student's first and last name
  • Your current home address
  • The best phone number to reach you

NOTE: If you leave this information on our voicemail, please speak slowly and clearly. If you have any questions, please reach out to the email/number above.

Sincerely,

Mark Stauduhar
Principal
Lyndale Community School
