Lyme-Old Lyme Public Schools believes that a comprehensive interscholastic athletic program is vital to the attainment of our educational values as a whole. It is an important piece of a comprehensive educational program. Athletic programs are viewed as an extension of the classroom where student athletes put into practice the many skills and concepts that serve as the foundation of our educational program. A comprehensive athletic program allows for both community (team) and individual growth. A student’s sense of self expression, physical and emotional wellbeing, moral and social responsibility and the need to work cooperatively with others are all enhanced by a well-organized and effectively administered athletic program. Lyme-Old Lyme Public Schools will make every reasonable effort to meet the needs of all of our students both on an individual and team basis.
