Learn. Lead. Lift
Mission & Values
Developing a confident community of student leaders by nurturing and empowering the whole- child through innovative instruction and purposeful movement in a small school environment.
Every student can be a leader of change - Diversity is an asset - Everyday movement results in cognitive growth - Personalized learning through a small-school culture.
As October begins and we enter our third month of school, our teachers and students have been working hard learning new skills through engaging lessons that challenge students' thinking and empower them to be leaders in their own education. This month we invite all of our families to join us for our first quarter parent/teacher conferences that will occur during the evenings of October 23 and October 24. During this time you will have an opportunity to not only learn about how your child is doing in school, but what strategies we are using to support them so that they can be most successful as well as new ways for you to support them at home. Communication around scheduling will be coming home in the next week, so please be sure to mark your calendars!
In addition to parent conferences, we also have Lyn Knoll Spirit Week (September 30-October 4) and Fall Break (October 11-October 21) this month! Please check out our website and weekly Thursday folders for additional information about this month and all the exciting things we have planned!

Aurora Public Schools Dress Code Policy
AURORA PUBLIC SCHOOLS APS Code: JICA-R
Adopted June 2012
Revised June 2014
STUDENT DRESS CODE
In order to maintain a school environment which is safe and conducive to learning, all clothing must be appropriate so as not to disrupt the learning environment and not interfere with the health, safety and welfare of any person.
The following items are deemed to be unacceptable to wear to school:
• Shorts, dresses, skirts or other similar clothing that are so short as to be immodest and/or create a distraction
• Sunglasses, hats, and/or head coverings (e.g., hoodies, bandanas, and doo rags) worn inside the building
• Inappropriately sheer, tight or low-cut clothing (e.g., midriffs, halter tops, backless clothing, tube tops, garments made of fishnet, mesh or
similar material, muscle tops, etc.) that bare or expose traditionally private parts of the body including, but not limited to, the stomach,
buttocks, back and breasts
• Clothing worn in such a way as that undergarments can be seen
• Any clothing (including outwear), grooming, jewelry, hair coloring, accessories, or body adornments that are or contain any advertisement,
symbols, words, slogans, patches, or pictures, etc., that:
- Refer to drugs, tobacco, alcohol, or weapons
- Are of a sexual nature
- By virtue of color, trademark, or other attributes denote membership in gangs which advocate drug use, violence, or disruptive
- Are obscene, profane, vulgar, lewd, or legally libelous
- Threaten the safety or welfare of any person
- Promote any activity prohibited by the student code of conduct
- Otherwise disrupt the teaching-learning process
School principals, in conjunction with the school accountability committee and/or other parent group, may develop and adopt school-specific dress codes that are consistent with this policy. If any unusual situation relative to dress or grooming arises which is not specifically covered in this regulation, the building principal shall have the authority to rule on the appropriateness of the attire.
Students are permitted to bring cellphones to school. However, it is strongly recommended that student do NOT bring electronics to school. The expectation is once instruction begins, cell phones must be turned off or on silent and must remain in students’ backpacks until they are dismissed from school. Students who have their cell phone out during the school day will have their cell phone taken away until the end of the day. If a student does not follow the above expectation, they will be asked to refrain from bringing their cell phone to school. Is it also asked that students leave all money and other valuable property at home.
We are not responsible for the loss or theft of cell phones or other personal electronic devices, and/ or valuable property brought from home.
It is important that you keep up to date on the day to day weather conditions, and send your child to school dressed appropriately and prepared for rain, snow and sun at any given moment.
Visitor Check-In Requirements
Aurora Public Schools and Lyn Knoll have implemented the District-Wide Raptor Security System to check in our visitors. This system reviews a nationwide database to check backgrounds on individuals that visit our school, including all APS employees, authorized Volunteers and District Approved Contractors, prior to conducting business within our buildings.
It is required that you provide us with your government issued ID (i.e. drivers license, passport, matricula consular, state issued ID) which will then be scanned in the system. You will then be issued a visitor sticker that must be worn at all times while you are in the building and must be returned to the office upon exiting the building. Please be prepared with identification every time you visit our school. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this safety system, please contact our office. For more detailed information, you may click the link below or contact our APS Security department directly.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.
