Dear Lyn Knoll Families,


We would like to welcome you to another great year at Lyn Knoll Elementary School! We know you have a choice in your child's education and we appreciate you choosing our school to develop your child into a lifelong learner, leader, and lifter of their community! Our faculty and staff have been working hard all summer to ensure every student at Lyn Knoll receives the highest quality remote and in-person education in a safe and caring environment.


We look forward to welcoming all students in grades 1st through 5th grade back to school for remote/online learning starting Tuesday, August 18, and Kindergarten and preschool on Monday, August 24th. In preparation for online learning, we will be hosting Back to School nights on August 13th and 14th. Families will have a scheduled time to visit the school, pick up all student materials and supplies, meet their teacher, and complete all registration requirements. New students to Lyn Knoll will receive their Chromebook during this time, as well. It is very important that all families attend during their scheduled time so that you and your child have everything you need for your child to be successful during online learning. Our family liaisons will be calling all families this week to schedule their appointments.


Have a great week and we look forward to seeing all our families at our Back to School nights!
