Turkey Lunch with Students

Thursday, Nov. 16th, 11am-12:30pm

12445 East 2nd Avenue

Aurora, CO

Join us and your child/ren for our 2nd Annual Turkey Lunch where we will serve a traditional Thanksgiving meal including pumpkin pie.


If you wish to purchase an adult meal, the cost is $3.90. Please RSVP (for every meal to be purchased) if you will be attending this event.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

Bell Times and Tardies

As a reminder, the final bell rings at 7:55 a.m. If students are not in class by the final bell, they are considered tardy. After the tardy bell, students should be entering the building through the main doors so that they can obtain a tardy pass from the main office.


Your understanding and support is appreciated.

YOUR CONTACT INFORMATION

Throughout the school we like to send out automated phone calls with information regarding the school such as upcoming events, changes, etc. There are also times when we will need to contact you and having up-to-date contact information is key to our communication.


If you have any changes to your contact information i.e. phone number, address, email address, please let us know immediately so that we may assist you in updating our system accordingly.


See below for information on updating your own information through the APS Parent Portal.

**NEW SECURITY CHECK IN SYSTEM**

RAPTOR IS HERE!


Starting immediately Lyn Knoll we will be using the Raptor Security System to check in our visitors. This system utilizes a nationwide database to check backgrounds on those that visit our school. It is required that you provide us with your government issued ID which will then be scanned in the system and print out a visitor tag; much like local hospitals.


Please be prepared with identification when you visit our school. If you have any questions or concerns please contact our office.


For more detailed information, please contact our Security department directly.

Parent Portal

Click here for access to the APS Parent Portal where you can monitor your child's progress, grades, assignments, attendance and even update your contact information and emergency contacts.

https://sis.aps.k12.co.us/campus/portal/aurora.jsp

The Parent Port tool will require a user name and password. Please contact your student’s school to retrieve this information if your are a first time user.

Student Drop Off and Pick Up/Staff Parking Lot

Please park along 2nd Avenue and obey the city street signs to avoid being ticketed. If for any reason, due to medical conditions or other reasons beyond your control, you need to enter the parking lot for student drop off and pick up, please contact the office.


Outside of drop off and pick up times, please be cautious of pedestrians in the area while driving through the parking lot. Do not text while driving. The safety of our students, staff, and community is one of our highest priorities.


Also note that we have new bell times.

* 7:50 am is the first bell

*class officially begins at 7:55 am

*dismissal is 2:55 pm


Students can arrive as early as 7:30 am. Prior to that time there is no adult supervision. It is so important that kids arrive on time to school every day and that they are prepared to learn. It is equally important that students are picked up on time at 2:55 as we do not have on-site after school supervision.

SEEKING PARENT VOLUNTEERS

Are you bored at home? Looking to volunteer? Have spare time? Or just want to help out and pitch in?

Lyn Knoll is in need of parent volunteers in the following areas:

*lunch/recess coverage

*cross walk/traffic/parking lot duties

*student monitoring during drop off and pick up times

If you are interested in volunteering, please see Mrs. Garcia for more information.


**A clean background check is required for all volunteers.**
