Thank you all for understanding our updated security policies to include the addition of our video buzz in system. Additionally, to ensure building safety, please be reminded that parents are asked to make appointments with teachers and staff. We love our parents and love to maintain a high level of communication, but parents are discouraged from coming up to school to see a teacher before, during, or after school without an appointment scheduled. When a teacher stops to have a conversation with a parent, it takes his/her attention off the class, and we want to maintain safety for all students. In addition, please be reminded, as per Lynnhaven Elementary policies sent home in the summer with the class assignments, parents wishing to observe students must make an appointment with the administration. Thank you for your understanding!
