Welcome Center

As the first place of interaction parents/caregivers, and children have with Lynn Public Schools, we promise consistent standards for culturally responsive practices so all families that interact with the Welcome Center are immersed in a supportive environment where families feel valued, respected, and understood, so children learn to thrive, and impact the greater community and the world.

All students entering the Lynn Public Schools for the first time, all students reentering the Lynn Public Schools due to a break in their enrollment status and all students requesting transfers from one school to another within the Lynn Public School system must sign-up at the Welcome Center.
