Family Update- Jan. 22, 2023
Greetings, Lynn Road Families! I hope you all had a great weekend. Please don’t forget that this week is the last week of the 2nd quarter and first semester. Next week we will have made it halfway through the school year. Please continue to partner with us as we work to ensure that we have a strong second half of the school year!
Below are a few updates for the coming week. We look forward to a great week of learning and growing.
School will be closed for students this Friday, January 27th. Please plan accordingly. If you have not already done so, make sure to review the WCPSS Traditional Calendar for future important dates.
Student Carpool Expectations for Afternoon Dismissal
If your child is a part of afternoon carpool, please work with us to discuss the following reminders with them so that we can expedite the dismissal process as efficiently as possible. Students should:
arrive to the carpool dismissal location (cafeteria) quickly, and quietly
sit in assigned area by last name
remain quiet while in the cafeteria so that others can hear their number getting called
line up quickly when their number gets called
Thank you for supporting us in this process.
PTA General Membership Meeting
There will be a PTA Meeting this Thursday, January 26th in the media center. A social will begin at 5, and the meeting will begin at 5:30. Come to find out what all our committees have planned for the rest of the year and connect with us to make it happen! You can also complete your WCPSS volunteer registration before or after the meeting if you haven't already done so. Please note that volunteer registration is required for in-school volunteering and for chaperoning field trips!
***If you are available to help supervise popcorn and a show for kiddos during the meeting please email firstname.lastname@example.org***
