    Dear Students and Families,

    As we embark upon the Third Quarter, the staff at Lyon are committed to providing safety while delivering high-quality instruction and a great learning experience.

    We will continue to use our hybrid model for the third quarter (In-Person and Virtual/ 5 days a week). If you selected to send your student in person on the district survey sent to you in December, your student is permitted to come to school everyday school is in session, given there are no health and/or safety concerns. Per your transportation needs, you will receive a bus letter indicating your student’s route number and bus stop. Otherwise, please reach out to the transportation department at 314.389.1111 ext. 1.

    While some of our students return to in-person learning, many of our students will continue to learn from home. Our hybrid-learning option considers ALL families who wish to keep their student virtual and those who wish to send their children to school. All families can expect:

    • Design-standards based virtual/blended learning modules/units of study.
    • Teacher websites updated regularly with information about what students are learning.

    For our in person students, our doors open at 7:40 AM daily. Instruction will begin at 8:05 AM. Our dismissal time is 2:02 PM. For in-person students, please carefully read the following.

    • Students learning in person at Lyon will adhere to physical distancing practices and mask mandates.
    • Students must come to school daily with their fully charged iPad and charger
    • Physical distancing and COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place.
    • Lunch will be eaten in classrooms. Parents who opt to send lunch with their child are asked not to send general allergen foods such as nuts, peanuts and shellfish.
    • ALL students MUST wear a facemask. (Please send your child to school with mask). As per the CDC and Lyon’s Nurse White, a mask must cover a student’s mouth and nose at all times. If a student has to continually adjust his or her mask, it doesn’t fit properly, and you might need to find a different mask type or brand.
    • Students will be screened daily by providing answers to the following:
    • Do you have a cough?
    • Have you been around anyone sick?
    • Temperatures will be taken. (Those students who have a body index of more than 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit will be sent home.

    ARRIVAL & DISMISSAL

    • All students arriving via school bus will enter the building from Virginia Avenue. There, they will be screened and then to report to their classroom for breakfast. Masks must be worn to cover the nose and mouth. Social distancing measures will be in place.
    • Students who walk or who are arriving by car will enter the from Virginia Avenue. No one will enter through the front door.
    • It is important that students are on time. We will stop admitting students after 9 AM. If your child cannot make it to school by 9 AM, he or she will join classes virtually that day.
    • At Dismissal, bus riders will remain in their classroom with their teacher. Buses will be called over the intercom.
    • Students being picked up or walking home will be escorted to the cafeteria by Lyon staff members and be released to parents on the Vermont Avenue side of the school.
    • Early Dismissals: We are aware that there are times when situations occur; however, we ask that you try to keep students at school for the duration of the school day unless it is an emergency. If such should occur, please contact the school secretary with the exact time of your arrival so that we can take the necessary precautions to ensure that you retrieve your child and that we are following our COVID norms. 1:30 is the cut off time for early dismissal as our staff will be busing preparing for regular dismissal.
    • If your child is being picked up, rather than riding the bus, you need to inform the main office by 1 PM. If you are not at Lyon by 2 PM to pick up your child, we will put your child on the bus.

     

    For students continuing with the Virtual Model of Hybrid Instruction, please note the following:

    • Your child will keep the same teacher(s)
    • Your child will participate virtually, in many cases with added support from a dedicated staff member assigned to that class.
    • Your child will actively participate in class through a two-way “live-stream” in Microsoft Teams, if attending virtually.
    • Your child will do the same work in the same applications at the same times per day for five days per week as all other classmates, whether they attend in person or virtually.
    • Your child will have standards based and blended models of instruction.
