As we approach the start of the 2022-23 school year, I want to share a few updates regarding registration and other need-to-know information as you prepare for this school year.
Pre School and new scholars to Lyon can register Monday- Friday at Lyon from 8AM- 2PM.
All transportation/bus related communications, including bus letters and schedules come directly from the district office. The transportation office should be notifying parents in next week or two.
We will continue with 1 to 1 tech devices this year. iPads are already wired with internet connection. The district will be providing every student with a backpack and school supplies this year so there is no need for families to purchase any supplies; instead we ask that you purchase uniforms for your students.
Lyon’s uniform consists of the following:
- Navy blue collared polo-style shirt.
- Khaki shorts, pants, skirts.
- Navy sweaters or cardigans when cold (no hoodies are to be worn inside the classroom)
- Closed toe shoes, sneakers or athletic style shoes preferred
- Please note we will continue to have “Dress for Success” Wednesdays. On these days, students can wear professional dress clothes.
- On Fridays, students can wear Lyon spirit wear t-shirts.
- Throughout the year, teachers will reward students with Dress Down Days, which will be announced in advance.
The district, working alongside the city's health department, will release all Covid procedures for this year in the coming weeks. All Covid protocols are created at the district level.
Social Distance & Mask Wearing
Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic we will continue to implement mitigation measures as established by St. Louis Public Schools. This will include the requirement for all students to wear masks while indoors and on the buses, social distancing of at least 3 feet between students where practicable, and regular handwashing and/or access to hand sanitizers. All visitors to our campus will also be required to wear masks. The safety measures that were put in place last school year including visitor restrictions and breakfast and lunch in the classroom will continue.
All students must wear a mask that securely covers their mouth and nose each day. No uniform will be required this year. Students must wear closed-toe and closed-back shoes at all times (no sandals, flip-flops or slippers).
