Welcome to the Lyon Academy Principal's Corner
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. We are glad that you are joining us, as we embark on an exciting year of teaching and learning at Lyon Academy.
After the last year of functioning in a fully virtual, and then hybrid setting we are excited to return to five full days of in-person instruction in the building. 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.
This year we will renew our commitment to excellence in all that we do, as we seek to provide world class instruction daily with the expectation that all students can learn and succeed. We will continue to provide students with opportunities to address academic deficiencies and to build numeracy and literacy skills. We will continue to implement initiatives to promote teaching and learning, and to engage all our stakeholders in the process of educating our students. A major initiative for this year is to address the concern of student literacy. We look forward to partnering with our stakeholders in this effort which will positively impact student performance in every content area, and in their overall academic growth and development.
I am excited about all that this new school year has to offer and look forward to working collectively as a family to ensure that our students are provided with the best educational experience possible to be critical thinkers, responsible citizens, and prepared to be successful in their endeavors after Lyon. The liger family will commit to excellence and being a world class institution of teaching and learning.
I look forward to building relationships with all stakeholders throughout this year and encourage you to become active members of the PTO and the Liger family. It is going to be an amazing year.
