Dear Classical Families,

As we move through unchartered territory, we appreciate your patience and understanding. We are doing all we can to keep learning happening for students and families.  Teachers will be reaching out to students through Jupiter with engagement activities to support your students’ learning. 

We understand there are challenges for some being able to access online work, so students will not be penalized if they are unable to access this work.  If your student has work that they would like feedback on, they can submit that to their teachers but they are not required to do so.   It is important for students to keep learning and to keep a structured day, so any support in pushing your students to do the following would be helpful and keep them ready for their return to school.  Students should be checking in for updates daily on Jupiter Ed


Set aside time for:

Reading, journaling, writing, math practice, exercise, talking with peers and siblings, games with friends and families.  Your teachers are providing you with links to engaging online curricula to support your learning around the standards that they would be covering in school.

Lynn Classical, Lynn English, LVTI and Marshall Middle School will be providing lunch for students to come and grab and bring home from 11:00 to 1:00.

I wish you all well during this time away, please keep all of your families close and safe.  We will communicate regularly with any new information.  If you have questions you can contact the school by phone at 781-477-7404  or reach out to staff through Jupiter.

Thank you,
Amy Dunn



School Lunch Update: March 2020

Dear Parent or Guardian:

We are pleased to inform you that Lynn Public Schools will be continuing the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) while participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs for School Year 2019-20.

What does this mean for you and your children who attend any Lynn Public School?

Great news! All enrolled students are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at no charge to your household each day of the 2019-20 school year. Your child (ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a meal application.
This means each student is eligible for ONE complete breakfast meal and ONE complete lunch meal at NO CHARGE.

If your child wants to purchase a second entrée, a juice, milk or other ala carte items they will need to have money on their account or pay with cash. There will be no charging on accounts allowed for these items going forward.

If you have any further questions, please contact the food service office at 781-477-7220.

Vaping Information and Resources

Dear Parents & Guardians,

The letter below is to inform you of issues surrounding “vaping”/ “juuling.” (using e-cigarettes). Lynn English High School would like to share information about vaping with our parents and guardians. Vaping is a serious concern for teens across the country. There are misconceptions that it is a “healthy” alternative to smoking when in fact it carries its own risks.

Please Download This Letter And Read About The Resources.
Feel free to contact us with any questions.

Thank you for partnering with us on this important topic of public interest.
We will continue to work to educate our students in all aspects of adolescent development.

Mass High School Football Trophy To Be Named After Harry Agganis

The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) today announced a partnership with the Agganis Family to honor the “Legend” Harry Agganis. With great respect, the MIAA and the Agganis Family announce the creation of the “Agganis Trophy” to be awarded at each of the eight MIAA Championship games at Gillette Stadium in December. “On behalf of the Agganis family, it is such a great honor to have Harry Agganis’ name associated with the MIAA Superbowl Trophy” stated Greg Agganis, Harry’s great nephew and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Agganis Foundation.

A native of Lynn, Massachusetts, Aristotle George “Harry” Agganis was born into a large family. Agganis excelled at Lynn Classical High School in both football and baseball as well as achieving high academic status. His efforts resulted in numerous athletic scholarships offered to him post-graduation. A local at heart, and wanting to stay close to his mother, Harry brought his talents to the Terriers of Boston University as a collegiate football, basketball and baseball player. Agganis’ football talents earned him All-American honors, the first for a Boston University Terrier.

Welcome to Lynn Classical High School

Principal's Welcome

Dear School Community:
This communication is to welcome both new and established students and families to Lynn Classical for the 2018-2019 school year.  I am truly excited to work with you this year as the interim principal.  My professionl experience at Lynn Classical includes teaching in the Math and Science Departments, Guidance Counselor and most recently the Assistant Principal for the past nine years.  I am also a lifelong Lynn resident and Classical graduate so I take both personal and professional pride in LCHS and will actively support the students, families and staff in having an engaging, safe and productive school year.

Our administrative team, teachers and support staff are very committed to meeting the needs of all students. Our team strives to celebrate differences while providing equitable access to education. We hope that your son or daughter has a positive academic and social experience while attending Classical. To achieve this goal we need the support from parents and guardians to reinforce the importance of students’ attendance, doing their personal best and interacting in a respectful manner with everyone.  Students will have a variety of assessments including: classwork, homework, tests, quizzes, and other assignments. To be successful students must be committed to completing these assignments on time and to the best of their ability. College acceptances and career pathways are very competitive and academic success starts in the ninth grade.  Students who support their academic learning by joining activities such as clubs and sports can build social skills, help to make friends and create a well-rounded high school experience.

Attendance is key to your students’ success.  Important learning is happening every day at LCHS and when your student is not here they are missing out.  For this reason we are partnering with district in their new initiative, “Every Student, Every Day.”  Classical has put together a team to increase communication with families regarding attendance and provide support in increasing all students’ attendance.  Most students who have failing grades have attendance problems. We ask that you join us in decreasing the number of unexcused absences. We also want to improve on our tardy and dismissal rate. Please do not schedule any appointments which allow students to miss class time unless it is absolutely necessary. Each absence from a class can negatively impact learning. Students who miss class will be asked to make up missed work after school. Many students have after school activities, work or other obligations but we ask that you help your student make school the number one priority.

Social emotional well-being is very important for academic success. Our Assistant Principals, Guidance Counselors, Social Worker, Adjustment Counselor, and School Nurses are available to assist students and parents. In addition, Lynn Community Health Center has a school based office available for students. Please let us know if we can be of any help.

Finally, I believe that open lines of communication are extremely important to the success of our school.  We use the Jupiter transparent grading system for both student and parents to keep you up to date with your students’ attendance and grades.  If you have not received your log in information, you should contact the guidance department 781-477-7404.   Jupiter messaging is also a great way to communicate with your students’ teachers, guidance counselors and the administration.  We will also send home written information as well as use blackboard connect for outreach calling and important information.  For important dates and upcoming events sign on to our website at www.lynnschools.org/classical  and access our School Calendar.
I wish you all a happy and successful school year. Please feel free to reach out to me with questions or concerns.  I look forward working with you this year.

Amy Dunn

About School Councils
A school council is a representative, school building-based committee composed of the principal, parents, teachers, community members and, at the secondary level, students, required to be established by each school pursuant to Massachusetts General Laws Chapter 71, Section 59C.

It is important to note the School Council plays an advisory role in assisting the building principal to organize and implement a School Improvement Plan which not only addresses the areas in which the school intends to comply with the requirements of the Educational Reform Act, but also how the school intends to meet those system-wide goals and policies adopted by the school committee. Membership will consist of the principal, teachers, parents, students and community members.
