Weekly Principal’s Update

LYMAN HIGH SCHOOL
WEEKLY PRINCIPAL'S UPDATE
September 23, 2018

Good afternoon parents! This is Mr. Rice, Principal of Lyman High School and this is your Weekly Principal’s Update!

We have completed six full weeks of school and are on the home stretch to our end of quarter exams!  Our teachers have been working hard to teach the knowledge necessary and I am confident that your child is ready for their assessment.  If you haven’t had the opportunity, please make sure to take a look at your child’s progress by logging into Skyward Family Access.  If you have any concerns, I encourage you to communication now with your child’s teacher before it is too late to help them succeed.  Most teachers are willing to offer some sort of tutoring or have a plan to ensure your child can obtain the knowledge they are lacking.  Keep in mind we have 9 school days until our first exam takes place.

Here is some information that will help you get through the next few weeks!
