Weekly Principal’s Update

LYMAN HIGH SCHOOL
PRINCIPAL’S WEEKLY UPDATE
April 14, 2019

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

BLOOD DRIVE TOMORROW

Tomorrow is our final blood drive of the year.  Thank you to all that have registered to help save the life of those in need.  Students are to report to the auditorium lobby at their assigned time and after they have given blood, they will receive a pass back to class and they are expected to arrive within 5 minutes of the time on the pass. 

PAWS PERIOD – WEDNESDAY

Just a reminder that this Wednesday is our next PAWS Period.  Students will attend PAWS Period after 2nd Period.  If you are off campus first and/or second period, please remember that the bell schedule will be different on Wednesday.  Click HERE for a copy of the bell schedule.

THANK YOU, MRS. CUMBIE

I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Mrs. Cumbie, Assistant Principal, who has served the students, staff, and families of Lyman High School for the past three years.  Mrs. Cumbie will be starting a new job this week in Orange County as she takes her next step in Leadership as the Assistant Director of Human Resources.  We are going to miss her but wish her all the best.  

Over the next few weeks, we will be hiring for her position. In the meantime, we have an interim plan in place to monitor and attend to the responsibilities of Mrs. Cumbie.  If you have any questions or concerns that she typically would have handled, please let us know and we’ll assist with pointing you in the right direction.

YEARBOOK PURCHASE – LAST CALL TO PRE-ORDER!!!

There are less than 30 yearbooks still available to preorder for $85! Get one now at www.yearbookforever.com before we run out. Seniors who have pre-ordered will receive their yearbook on May 6. Pre-order distribution for underclassmen is on May 7. The book will be for sale, while quantities last, on May 8. Prices increase to $100 once the yearbooks arrive.

REGISTRATION 2019-2020

Future course registration is still open for the 2019-2020 school year!  Students can log into their future schedules in Skyward and adjust their elective course through May 1st.  In addition, if they would like to adjust any of their core academic classes that they are currently signed up for next year, they need to fill out a "Course Override Form" and turn it into the Student Services Office by April 19th.
