State Debate

State Debate Team

On Thursday, January 11, 2018 the Lyons High Debate Team took to the road to compete at the KSHSAA 4 Speaker State Tournament held in Coffeyville, Kansas.  Lyons qualified for this honor by competing at the KSHSAA 4 Speaker Regional tournament on December 16, 2017 held here in Lyons in which the team placed 3rd.

The Aff team of Liberty Belote, Darian Holub, and Christian Mendez had a combined record of 4 wins and 3 losses.  Their only losses of the weekend were to the three top teams in the tournament.  The team also stole ballots from the State Champion Silver Lake and the third-place team Sterling. The Negative team of Diana Espinoza and Chase Keelsing fought hard and fell short with a record of 0 wins and 7 losses. The combined team had an overall record of 4-10 making them tied for fifth place with two other teams.  The tie was broke on number of ballots won and speaker points and Lyons landed up 7th place.  Coach Dawson stated, “This tournament is a very important tournament and an extremely difficult tournament to place in.  These kids did an amazing job of fighting.  Last year we only won one round at the state tournament and this year we won 4 and came close to winning a few other rounds against some very tough and competitive teams.  The team is young, and the good news is that we will retain this team for the few years, so the future of Lyons Debate looks good.”

This ended the teams Debate season and the squad is now focusing on Forensics.  The Forensics team is around 25-30 students and they are working frantically to prepare for their first tournament on what they hope will be the 29th of January in Ellsworth.

New Addition to Library!

cup with hot chocolateThe Lyons High School and Middle School staff and students are now enjoying fresh coffee and hot chocolate in the mornings before class time.

Melody Adams, Media Aide, saw the possibility of drawing more students into the library as an extreme plus. 

“Books are not just learning tools, but also entertainment.” States Mrs. Adams.  “A book is like a movie in your head!  Everyone knows that the book is always better than the movie anyway!  Being an avid reader helps children learn about the world around themselves.”

Finding a way to draw readers into the library became a goal for Adams.  What better way to draw a crowd, than the smell of coffee and chocolate on an early morning!

STARBOOKS CAFÉ- Read A Latte! opened last Friday with hot drinks and donuts and was a success.  Friday the 15th of December will be the next day before Winter Break the Café will be open.  After Break, Starbooks will be opened daily for hot drinks and Fridays will include donuts or other tasty treats.

Drinks and donuts are $1 each.  Proceeds will go towards additions in the library. 

“New books are like Christmas every day!  There is also new seating area needs to look at.”  Adams states.  “I want to make the school library someplace that kids want to come to, and if they check out a book while there, it’s a perfect day!”

Explanation of  lunchroom charging policy. 

Inserted Image    

    Every child on full or reduced meals can charge up to 5 meals Full (-$12.75) reduced (-$2.00) to their account before they are no longer allowed to charge and will be required to have a cheese sandwich, fruit and milk for lunch at no charge. Breakfast is included in those 5 meals If your child chooses to bring a sack lunch and would like to have a milk, it cost .55 cents.  If the student is on free or reduced meals the milk is still going to cost .55 cents.  Please send .55 cents with your child for each milk they plan to drink.


We are a very concerned school district, and we do everything in our power to make sure all children get a well-balanced meal every day. All elementary school children are informed when they get low on funds to let their parents know that they need more lunch money. In addition, we send at least two letters home each week to each child who is in the negative.


    Lyons Middle School and High School are informed of their balance daily. Anyone who has a negative balance gets a notice given to them at school. We feel that middle school and high school students are old enough to tell their parents when they need money. 

Occasionally, a parent may wish to join your child for a school lunch. Please call ahead the morning you plan to come before 8:30 AM and let us know so we can order an extra lunch from our school cafeteria and won’t run short on lunches for the day.

    We hope this information will help assure you that your child will get to eat every day. If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to call your students attending building office.




2016-17 Lions-N-Lyons Day


The 2018 Lions-N-Lyons Day is planned for April 11, 2018.  If you have a idea for a community project that our students could assist with please contact the Frisbie Education Center at 620-257-5196.



We Want To Hear From You

Attention LHS Class of 2011 and 2016: We would like to conduct a survey of our graduates five years and one year after high school. Please contact us to give us your current contact information if you would like to participate. Call the high school 620-257-5114 or the superintendent 620-257-5196 x 124.



We request that the following process be used by school bus drivers, students who drive to school, and parents who transport their children to and from school.

Morning Drop-off:

-High School students enter the parking lot from either the Dinsmore Avenue entrance or the east American Road entrance.

-Parents drop off at either the LMS drive or the LHS lot or circle.

-Busses drop off at the LHS circle.

Afternoon Pick-up:

-High School student exit the parking lot from either the Dinsmore Avenue exit or the east American Road exit.

-Parents pick-up in either the LMS or LHS parking lot. If using the LHS lot, enter and exit from the Dinsmore Avenue drive or the east American Road drive.

-Buses will pick-up LMS and LHS students at the LHS circle.

We believe these procedures are necessary for both student safety and better traffic flow.

A Reminder For Guests:


Please note that you will need to enter in through the LHS main entrance for all high school activities. The main entrance for the middle school will be locked


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.

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.
