Lynbrook High School  | June/ July 2018

SUMMER 2018

Dear Lynbrook Students, Parents and Guardians,

This is your electronic 2018 SUMMER MAILER. When you get a chance, take some time to click through the links below. Many of these documents will be in the paper mailing you will receive in July.  The paper mailing is funded by the PTSA and Lynbrook Excellence in Education (LExE) as a courtesy to all of our families.  The links will take you to information that will prepare you for the upcoming school year. Some of the forms provide you with the opportunity to donate. Your donations of money and time are a crucial part of maintaining the high-quality programs at Lynbrook High School. Your contributions have a powerful impact on the educational experience of all students.

OFFICE REOPENS FOR DROPS ONLY & CHANGE DAYS ON AUGUST 6

Our main office will open on August 6, 2018. Teachers return on Wednesday, August 15, 2018. The first day of school is Monday, August 20, 2018. If you need assistance before August 6, 2018, check the school website (www.lhs.fuhsd.org ). The LHS website continues to be the source of the latest information throughout the school year. Make the website the first place you look for news and assistance. 

VIKING DAYS AUGUST 13 & 14

9th Graders have orientation (8am-12noon) and their Viking Day on Monday, 8/13/18. At 12:30 after orientation, freshman with last names A-K will report to the library and students with last name L-Z will report to the Field House. Viking Day for 10th, 11th & 12th graders is Tuesday, 8/14/18 from 8:30am-3: 30 pm. Viking Days are important! Students take photos, get their ID, and pick up their official class schedules. All students should attend the Viking Day for their grade level. On Viking Day, students will submit paper forms (with checks attached). If forms were completed and submitted online, students only need to bring checks on Viking Days (the student’s name and ID# must be written on the memo line of each check!).  

THE 4C’S 21ST CENTURY SKILLS FOR COLLEGE, CAREER AND LIFE

As a school community, we are committed to this vision:

Lynbrook High School’s vision is to create a dynamic environment of respect and achievement where all can learn deeply, apply their knowledge, and contribute purposefully.

We are continuing to focus our efforts on our identified long-term school goals that include multi-year strategies and program development in the following areas:

High Levels of Learning & Performance for ALL students

Teachers will continue to work together in their Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) and Course-alike Teams (CATs) to provide students with a guaranteed and viable curriculum. Teachers strive to calibrate course content and student performance expectations for consistency across classes. 

Equipping ALL students with 21st Century Skills

We will continue our emphasis on the 4c's—Communication, Collaboration, Creative-Critical Thinking, and Character. This year we will work to teach students effective collaboration skills and the Lynbrook Leadership team is working this summer on an additional area of focus.

Managing Stress & Building Resilience in ALL students

Our team of mental health professionals, as well as the PTSA, is putting together a slate of speakers for parents and staff. Ronen Habib will be the first speaker of the year. Dates and times will be announced early in the school year. When students feel connected to each other and the school, they are happier and they have people to talk to when they need help. Recent studies show that in our world where people are more connected than ever before by technology, they are lonelier. To build community, promote positive relationships, and discuss the importance of personal character, we want to try something new. Students will be grouped by grade level and meet during Homeroom on Fridays. Groups will stay together with the same teacher all year.

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE 

PHASE 1 is completed! All are invited to join us for the Field House Addition & Dance/Fitness Studio Grand Opening on 8/14/18 at 3:30 pm.  PHASE 2 started this summer. I refer to PHASE 2 as the campus “heart transplant.” We are getting a new quad, cafeteria and gym entry. This phase of construction will have a dramatic impact on our site. We all need to work together and be patient and flexible with the exciting inconvenience of new construction. 

NEW CAFETERIA UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN 2018-19
Over the summer, the existing cafeteria was razed to make way for a new, beautiful building. Since we will not have a cafeteria in 2018-19, students will be served meals from the concessions area of the stadium. We have typically provided a table inside the cafeteria for parents to drop off lunches for students. With no cafeteria, we will be unable to accommodate this practice. Until we can work with PTSA to find an alternative plan, students will need to bring their own lunches to school.  We cannot hold lunches in the main office, and putting a table up outside will attract birds and create an unsanitary environment. Students will need to bring their lunches with them in the morning. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

PROCEED WITH CAUTION --- CONSTRUCTION ZONE
With the center of campus off limits, students will need to enter campus through the access road near the pool, through the construction fencing in front of the main office, or through the back gate near Walbrook Way near the football stadium. It is very important that everyone use extreme caution when driving near the school. Many students ride bicycles and are crossing Johnson Avenue. Make sure to plan your arrival to school at least 10-15 minutes before the first bell rings. View the enclosed map to view the access routes and areas closed for construction.

Revel in your summer! We will see you in August for another great school year!

GO VIKES!
