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.
School Loop and Infinite Campus
School Loop and Infinite Campus were open for access on August 15. Parents, guardians and students should be sure to activate their accounts. To learn more about how to create or activate accounts, follow this link: NEED HELP WITH ONLINE TOOLS?
It is crucial that the contact information in Infinite Campus (IC) is accurate. Users can update emails and phone numbers by logging into IC and then clicking the update button in the Household Information and the Family Members areas. The link to the IC Campus Portal is on the Lynbrook website under Online Tools.
School Loop is the online tool used by most teachers for class assignments and grading. It is also used to send out important messages. All students and parents should check School Loop often to stay in touch with what is happening in classes and on campus.
