Dear Lynbrook Families,

We are off to a great start!  Students, parents and staff members rose extra early to give themselves plenty of time to get to school. The road work on Johnson Avenue could continue through September 21, 2016. Look for updates on the school website. Mr. Wong will also send information through School Loop as needed.

The focus of the fourth meeting of the FUHSD Citizens Advisory Committee provided the opportunity for CAC members to more deeply understand the different enrollment options that are available for their consideration, such as area of choice, open enrollment, boundary change, program location or relocation, and intra-district transfers.  Attorney Ed Sklar was present to provide legal information about the viability of different enrollment strategies and options.  FUHSD Superintendent Polly Bove continued with her practice of participating in a question and answer session with the CAC and at this meeting questions were asked about Proposition 51 (concerning the fees that developers pay to school districts) and an inquiry about whether or not FUHSD was yet in receipt of updated enrollment numbers for this school year. Click here to view the presentation by FUHSD staff concerning dual immersion programs. Click here to read the minutes from the August 3 meeting.

Something to Think About

Want your child to get into college and have a good life? Here's how.

A few weeks ago, I sat in a high school auditorium with a hundred other parents and listened while guidance counselors gently, sometimes haltingly, listed the state requirements for graduation for the incoming freshmen, our children, the Class of 2020. They then went on to cite a dozen alternative paths that ranged from vocational to college prep to state-sponsored scholarships.
