School Safety Checks
As part of ongoing and routine efforts to increase campus safety, Lynnville-Sully CSD participates in random safety checks as led by school resource officer: Dept. Corey Van Kooten.
These efforts are part of a "see something, say something" campaign that encourages students, staff, parents and other stakeholders to speak up if they see something that seems strange or out of the ordinary.
At the most recent safety test, multiple staff members used the proper channels to communicate a potential concern and were rewarded with a gift certificate from Dept. Van Kooten. Bottom line: Hawks look out for each other!

Family Week (New) from State Activity Associations
The Iowa High School Music Association, Iowa High School Speech Association, Iowa High School Athletic Association and the Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union, in response to recommendations from input from our "Ad Hoc Committee", have implemented a "Family Week" on the Unified Activities Federation Calendar. “Family Week” is a week in the unified activity federation calendar that prohibits any coach or teacher/student contact and any unified activity federation event from occurring.
That period will include Saturday through Sunday of week 3 and Week 4 of the calendar and will begin July 25, 2021 through August 1, 2021.
All high school students, including incoming 9th graders, are covered under the rule and are not to have contact (on or off school premises) with teachers nor use school facilities during the eight day period.
