Back to School
Parents and Students,
We are excited to begin the 2017-2018 school year at East Lynne School. As the staff prepares to welcome students back, we would like to make you aware of some important procedures and events to help us transition into the new school year smoothly.
In the near future you should have received a student enrollment packet. Please look over the student information sheet and make any corrections. It is extremely important that we have your correct address and contact phone numbers. There are also additional pages that will need to be completed and returned to the school. Enrollment packets should be returned on TUESDAY, AUGUST 8th AT BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT. This event will be from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.
Back to School Night will be an opportunity to turn in all paperwork, meet your teachers, visit your classroom and bring your school supplies, deposit money into your student’s meal account and visit with Durham, our transportation provider. (Durham has asked that High School students attend back to school night since the will have a new driver.) Middle school students will also be able to pick up their class schedule, receive their locker assignment and visit with activity/sport sponsors.
Our school year will begin on Tuesday, August 15. Our school hours are, first bell 8:10 am and tardy bell 8:15 to 3:50 pm, with the building opening at 7:55 for breakfast. A school year calendar is available on the district’s website. http://www.eastlynne40school.org/vimages/shared/vnews/stories/52040ce332005/2017-2018%20Calendar%204%20Day%20Week.doc
Student Breakfast is $ 1.50 and Student Lunch is $2.00. Extra milks are $0.50. An application for free and reduced meals can also be found on the district’s website. http://www.eastlynne40school.org/vimages/shared/vnews/stories/521ccbd6e4a97/Application%20for%20Website.pdf
Prescription medications may be brought in the original container and will require a form to be completed.
We look forward to seeing each of you at Back to School Night. Should you have any questions, please contact the school office at 816-626-3511. It is going to be a great year at East Lynne School!
