WHAT: Lynwood Unified is welcoming back nearly 12,000 students to campuses as the District greets children with increased socio-emotional resources and celebrates recently being awarded $250 million in financial support from the state to restore the Lynwood High School Imperial Campus.

Lynwood High School, which moved to its Bullis Campus last year while the Imperial site was uncertain, will unveil new signage features and showcase a giant check for $250 million that will ultimately restore a high-quality campus for the community.

Firebaugh High School will soon showcase a new state-of-the-art STEM lab that will allow the school to double enrollment in its biomedical science and nursing program along with its advanced manufacturing and engineering program. The lab will break ground in September.

Districtwide, LUSD is hiring social-emotional learning specialists to lead SEL Awareness at every school. Eight licensed clinical social workers have also been added to increase mental health support.

The District is also excited to begin the new universal transitional kindergarten program that will expand the eligibility of children and families for TK. It will be phased in over the next five years until it covers all four-year-olds in the state.

Lynwood Unified boasts improved facilities across the District and recently opened a pair of new Early Learning Centers.
