"Schoology" Parent Access Update - October 6, 2020

Your student's school will be reaching out to you by the end of next week with an access code for "Schoology". If you do not receive an access code by October 9th, reach out to your child's homeroom teacher. At the secondary level, you only need 1 access code and all courses will be loaded.

This account will allow you to see the work your child has submitted, discussions they have participated in, school updates, and also provides the ability to message staff at the school. Multiple children can be added to one parent account.

The following are videos (Part 1 and Part 2) showing how to set up your account and take advantage of all the "Schoology" features available to you.

Lynn Public Schools Plan for Meal Distribution

School Year 2020-2021

Breakfast and Lunch Meals will be made available to all Lynn Public School students.  The USDA has extended summer waivers that will continue to allow parents/guardians to pick up their children’s meals at distribution sites. As for now, school ID numbers will not be required for pick up. This could change as the waivers are only extended to December 31st or earlier depending on funding. 

Starting Monday September 21, 2020
We will be moving to a three day distribution schedule.

Distribution days will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday
Distribution times will be from 12 Noon until 2:30 PM.

(Monday and Wednesday will be two days’ worth of meals and Friday will be three days)

Meals will be offered at the following school locations throughout the City:

English High School  Brickett Elementary     Cobbet Elementary     
Hood Elementary Classical High School   Ingalls Elementary
Lynn Tech
(main building) 
Connery Elementary    Lincoln-Thomson

Pickering Jr. High Ford Elementary     Sewell-Anderson
Aborn Elementary     Harrington Elementary     Shoemaker Elementary
Tracy Elementary    

All foodservice staff members will participate in COVID-19 training and follow strict guidelines for glove, mask and physical distancing protocols. Enhanced cleaning and sanitation measures will help assure the safest environments possible.

Menus and Nutrition Facts at Your Fingertips with the Nutrislice App
Menus can be found on the Lynn Public School website under Food Service Department or the Nutrislice app. Through Nutrislice, an innovative app, students, parents and faculty have access to school menus, including nutrition information, allergens and photos, available on desktop and mobile devices.

Dear Lynn Woods Families,

As you may already know, the Lynn Public Schools will begin the 20-21 school year remotely.  Remote learning is students engaged in their classes and completing assignments from a remote location, not from inside the school. Although we will be learning remotely, the attendance policy has not changed. It remains the same as in previous years. 

This school year will look very different as we move into teaching and learning. We have adopted a Learning Management System for Lynn Public Schools called"Schoology".  A learning management system is an online application that allows for the administration of educational courses, providing teaching and learning opportunities anytime, from anywhere. Your child will be taught using "Schoology", Monday-Friday, throughout the school day and beyond. "Schoology" can be accessed through a desktop, laptop, or through the web browser on an iPad or tablet. 

Students will access "Schoology" by logging onto:
https://lynnschools.schoology.com

Username:
student’s email address:
stu------@lynnschools.org (6 digit ID# follows stu)

Your child’s 6-digit student id# is included in their email address, immediately following stu. If you don’t know your child’s id# please e-mail the classroom teacher or call the office for assistance. Beginning on September 16th, once they are logged in, their courses will be loaded on this page and they will have access to school updates.  More information will follow including videos with how to login. 

Students in grades 3-12 should have already received their district issued loaner laptops at this time. If you have not had this opportunity, please contact your building principal and they will provide dates, times, and locations for pickup. Devices have been ordered for students in grades K-2, we will notify families when those arrive. 

Starting September 23rd, the school day for Grades 1 - 5 at Lynn Woods School is Monday - Friday from 8:15 AM to 1:15 PM.. During that time, students will participate in teaching and learning based on the following times:
Morning Circle 30 minutes (5 days a week)
English Language Arts/Social Studies 120 minutes (5 days a week)
Math 90 minutes (3 days a week)
Math 60 minutes (2 days a week)
Science 30 minutes (2 days a week)
Brain Break 30 minutes (5 days a week)
Closing Circle 15 minutes (5 days a week)
     
The Kindergarten Schedule is based on an AM (8:15-10:30) or
PM (11:00-1:15) class with following time allotments. 
Morning Circle 30 minutes (5 days a week)
English Language Arts 45 minutes (5 days a week)
Screen Break 15 minutes (5 days a week)
Math 30 minutes (5 days a week)
Closing Circle 15 minutes (5 days a week)

I understand many of you want to start to familiarizing yourself with "Schoology". LPS will be publishing an introduction video to "Schoology" for parents and families early next week. Please watch for that! Also, classroom teachers will be sending out Zoom log in information for the orientation days. During those orientation days teachers will gradually introduce the new "Schoology" platform to the students.

If you are experiencing IT troubles with any of the LPS issued device you can reach out to the HELP DESK

Technology Help Desk
781-477-7342 (Monday-Thursday-7:45-3:45, Friday-7:45-12:45)

Did You Know?

The routine of the school day is important for students. They know the main purpose for being in school is to learn and that routines are in place precisely to help them focus on that learning. When students are repeatedly tardy, these routines are disrupted. Arriving after 8:15 AM can throw off their whole morning or even their day, especially if being late made the trip to school stressful.

If getting to school by 8:15 AM is a challenge for your family, you will need to make changes to your morning schedule at home in order to get to school on time. During the winter, students take longer to get ready because of coats, boots and hats. Setting your alarm for 15 minutes earlier could be all that is needed to ensure students are here to meet the teacher by 8:15 AM. This adjustment can help ensure that all students have a great start to their day

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.
