Handbook Modifications 

Casual Fridays:

In recognizing that an abrupt change in allowing what types of shirts students may wear on Casual Fridays has created difficulty without adequate notice from the prior spring semester, Dr. Riley is approving the following change to Casual Friday attire for the 2017-2018 school year:  "A club, team or BL polo or t-shirt purchased through the Activities Office or The Lynch Locker" 

Uniform socks:

The Bishop Lynch administration recognizes that the 2017-2018 Student-Family Handbook contains an inconsistency in the description regarding the socks that are part of the school uniform.  Therefore, for the sake of clarity and consistency, the following adaptation is being made for the 2017-2018 school year:  School-approved socks may have a small logo (for example, a white sock may contain a small Nike logo). All other requirements still apply.  This issue will be reviewed and clarified in the 2018-2019 Student-Family Handbook.

Please note that your source for accurate information regarding all uniform expectations will be official communications as printed in the Student-Family Handbook or written communications from the Bishop Lynch High School Office for Student Affairs.

My Kids Spending (MKS)
If you haven’t set up your account, please do so ASAP ( – contact if you encounter any issues).  The kids are making purchases that you need to be aware of in order to maintain a positive balance.  Please sit down to discuss the student’s spending and assist them in keeping a monthly budget for purchases.  This will be helpful to ensure the balance isn’t out of control by the end of the quarter when it must be positive.

Please note that all fall sporting fees, cloth goods and any other various charges to participate in a fall athletic program will be charged to your child’s MKS account and must be funded no later than October 6, 2017 to be eligible to start 2nd quarter. All charges to your child’s MKS accounts must have a positive balance by the end of the 1st quarter. All parking passes will be charged over the next few of weeks.
