Student Handbook

  • August, 2022

    Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:

    The LYONS TOWNSHIP HIGH SCHOOL HANDBOOK has been organized to provide you with essential information. We encourage you to read it carefully and to discuss its contents.

    Included are sections on attendance, graduation requirements, academic information, student services, attendance/disciplinary procedures, co-curricular activities, athletics, and other general information.  Applicable sections of the 2022-23 Lyons Township High School Handbook also include references to District 204 Board Policy.  For more detailed curricular information, please refer to the Academic Program Guide.  

    This handbook is posted as a way of notifying you of the expectations, policies, and procedures of Lyons Township High School. Our belief is that an effective partnership with parents and students is based upon this sharing of information.  

    We hope the 2022-2023 school year is successful academically, intellectually and socially for you!

    WE ARE….LT!

    Sincerely,

    Dr. Jennifer Tyrrell 
    Principal

    PHILOSOPHY STATEMENT

    The Lyons Township High School District #204 will provide an environment where teachers can teach and students can learn. It is expected that co-curricular programs will have the same environments. To achieve this environment, expectations of behavior and conduct shall be established that govern the entire school operation, classrooms and instructional areas, co-curricular groups and activities, and school facilities. Expectations of behavior shall be established, keeping in mind, that proper behavior is part of learning and development. Expectations will be accompanied with consequences that are appropriate for the lack of meeting the expectations.

    Consequences shall be applied fairly regardless of race, creed, sex, national origin, or social standing. The LTHS District #204 established discipline policies and procedures to ensure the maintenance of the proper environment and to make all members of the LT community aware of the expectations and consequences.
