Student information updates

On Friday, September 12, 2014, a letter was distributed to all parents via the district's SchoolTool Parent & Student Portal highlighting some important details regarding student information updates in the new school year. In particular, the letter addresses changes to how report cards and Individual Student Reports (ISRs) for grade 3-8 assessments will be available to parents as well as information about verifying and updating your child's health information.

LES calendar updated to provide additional instructional time

The Lynnwood Elementary School building cabinet, working with the PTA, met this summer to revise the school's building events calendar in order to give teachers additional instructional time with their students during the school day. This extra time will enable teachers to provide more opportunities for project based learning, additional enrichment work and extra support for students who are struggling. Many of the changes reflect a combining of events as opposed to holding events over a variety of days. (For example, combining the Apple Fun Run with Share and Celebrate). Many changes have been made and as a result, the printed district calendar mailed home to parents in August no longer accurately reflects many Lynnwood events for the new school year. Please make sure to consult the new LES calendar for revised dates of annual school events. View the updated calendar (PDF)

Kindergarten Open House to be held October 2

Please note that this year's Kindergarten Open House will be held Thursday, October 2 (not September 2 as was printed in the district calendar ). We apologize for the confusion. Notices and reminders about the event will also be sent home in your child's backpack in September.
