Principal Kelly Nusser awarded West Kansas NFL Principal of the Year Award. 

On April 18, 2015, Lyons High School Principal Kelly Nusser was awarded the first ever West Kansas NFL Principal of the Year Award.  This award is given to the principal who has succeeded in providing equal opportunities for students in speech and debate as well as demonstrating exemplary contributions to the profession.

Kelly Nusser
Mr. Nusser is an ardent supporter of the Lyons High Debate and Forensics program in many ways.  These range from allowing the team to host many different tournaments that range from the local, league, district, and regional levels.  He has also been willing to help judge tournaments and continues to fight for funding so that students can competitively compete at the state and national levels.


Mr. Nusser was chosen out of a pool of administrators from different schools ranging in sizes from 2A- 6A and was selected by the West Kansas District Committee based on a submission essay.  According to LHS coach Daniel Dawson, “Mr. Nusser fits the description of this award to a T, and I was proud to nominate him for the award.  The support that he gives our students in this activity is tremendous, and it is a privilege for me to be associated with an administrator such as Mr. Nusser.”


New 3D Printer at LHS

Lyons High School recently bought a 3D-printer with the help from two local companies. KNW and Lyons Manufacturing each contributed $800 to the purchase of the 3D-printer. The new printer will be used by many different classes and teachers.. Next school year students will have the opportunity to enroll in a 3D-modeling class, where they will learn how to create 3D objects in a 3D-modeling software program. Students that take Entrepreneurship will create a student ran business that will sell custom designed 3D-printed cell phone cases, Lyons keychains, and other custom made Lyons products. Students will also have the chance to work with the printer in other STEM classes, such as physics, biochemistry, and geometry.

The printer works by heating up a plastic filament. As the printer heats up the filament lays very thin layers of plastic in the layout of the object you are printing. After each layer the printer adds a new layer of plastic over the previous layer. This layering effect creates the 3D object. The printer has 24 different colors of filament.

Students are very excited at LHS about the new technology and they are looking forward to using it in class next school year.

Lyons High Ranked 15th Best Public High School in Kansas by Niche Site

According to the Niche website,  “Best Public High Schools ranks 14,431 high schools based on dozens of key statistics and 4.6 million opinions from 280,000 students and parents. Lyons High was awarded a top ranking with As in the areas of Academics Grade, Health & Safety Grade and Student Culture & Diversity Grade.  A high ranking indicates that the school is an exceptional academic institution with a diverse set of high-achieving students who rate their experience very highly.” Founded in 2002 by Carnegie Mellon University students, the site reports it has grown into on the largest content startups in the country. By providing reviews and insight from everyday experts, they make choosing a neighborhood, college, or K-12 school a more transparent process. The organization included Academics, Health & Safety, Student Culture & Diversity,  Teachers, Resources & Facilities, Survey Responses, Extracurricular & Activities, Sports & Fitness, Graduation rate, State Assessment Results, etc. for ranking consideration.

Cell Phones Not Permitted During Instructional Time

Unlike many high schools, students at Lyons High School are permitted to carry their cell phones during the day.

Use of their cells phones is restricted to certain times so that it does not interfere with the learning environment of the classroom. Students are allowed to use their cell phones before and after school, during their lunch period and between passing periods.

Cell phones are not to be used during the "instructional time" of class, which starts when the bell rings to begin the class period and ends when the bell rings to end the class period


A Reminder For Guests:

Lyons High began using Access Control doors earlier this school year. These doors are an added safety feature which allows us to monitor who is entering the building.

Doors to the high school will be locked at all times, except between 7:30 a.m. and 8:15 a.m., the front doors of the airlock will be unlocked for students to enter the building.

After 8:15 a.m., the front doors will be locked, entrance to the building will be monitored by a camera and intercom system for the Access Control door. After pushing the button, located by the south front door, visitors will be asked to identify themselves and state the reason for their visit before gaining entrance into the building. All guests must register in the office and wear a visitors badge for the duration of their stay.
