Season Opens for Debate Team
On Saturday, September 17, 2016 the Lyons High Debate Team took to the road for their season opener in Great Bend. Lyons competed with two varsity teams and three novice teams in a pool of highly competitive competition.
The varsity team of Matthew Eades (Sr) and Heaven Whittier (Sr) missed medaling by a place in the Open Division taking 9th. In the Novice Division, the team of Liberty Belote (Fresh) and Malcolm Redd (Fresh) placed 6th missing 5th by one speaker point. The varsity team of Nicole Payne (Sr.) and Samantha Morales (Soph.) and the novice teams of Melissa Williams (Fresh) and Madison Hoskins (Fresh), and Tausha Wheat (Fresh) and Darian Holub (Fresh) all fought hard and learned many important lessons.
The LHS Debate Team as a whole placed 3rd in teams sweeps bringing home a trophy for the first time at a debate tournament since 2009. Coach Dawson stated, “This year’s squad is a special mix and I can’t wait to see what they do in the weeks to come. I know one thing; if they continue to do what we ask of them and practice then the sky is the limit.”
The varsity team travels this weekend to compete at the Halstead Invitational and then the novices will travel again on October 1st when they head to Sterling.

Congratulations to our LHS Cheerleaders for the 2016-2017 school year! Members will include:
Alternate is Alicia Silva
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.
-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.
-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.

7:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Infinite Campus On-line Updates (Existing Families)
For the 2016-17 enrollment, parents can go on-line in their Infinite Campus Parent Portal account to update their household/demographic information and enter any new students they might have attending USD 405 Lyons. You can do this by logging into your Parent Portal Account, on the left side of the page scroll down until you see the Online Registration link in light blue. Click on the link and follow the on screen instructions. You can do this at home and save some time at enrollment on August 1 and 2, 2016. Parents will still need to attend one of the enrollment dates to complete enrollment and pay fees.

New families to USD 405 can start the registration process by going on online to the following link: https://kscloud1.infinitecampus.org/campus/OLRLoginKiosk/lyons
