b. Encourage your child that LYNC is a FUN adventure (We are NOT summer school).

c. Talk to your child about being respectful and listening and following directions.

11. Does my child have to attend every day?

a. No. Children need to be registered for LYNC at least three days per week. We understand that families have activities they want to do together and we don’t want to interfere with that, but we do encourage good attendance.

b. In order to participate in special activities (swimming and field trips), children need to have been in attendance at least two of the five preceding LYNC days (in addition to the special event day).

c. If you know in advance that your child will be absent for summer camps or family vacation, just let us know.

12. Can I drop off my children any time, or do they need to arrive at 9:00 am?

a. LYNC is not a drop-in program. Our regular day begins at 9:00 AM. We try to maintain a FUN, but structured environment, and it is best if all children arrive at 9:00 (unless arriving earlier for Extra LYNC).

b. We understand there will be occasional times when your children may have a doctor appointment or have other lessons or appointments and will need to arrive later than 9:00.
