Lyncourt Union Free School District is located at 2709 Court Street Syracuse, NY and provides education for grades K-8 in Onondaga County. In Lyncourt, as in any community, the schools have an important part in the area’s history. To date, the Lyncourt area has had three different schools. The schools have undergone a great deal of change through the years as determined by the needs of the community. The following is a review of the Lyncourt School history as it relates to building development.
This information is taken directly from two documents. The first document was entitled Discovering Lyncourt : A Local History Anthology written by the 5th,6th,7th and 8th grade students in the Gifted Education Program of Lyncourt School (circa 1986) and “The History of Lyncourt School” written by C. Napolitano. Much like any historical information, it is both intriguing and entertaining.
In the late forties the school was again bursting at the seams and the Board of Education had to ask the taxpayers to consider a referendum for an addition to the 1932 building. The community responded favorably to this referendum and plans were started to add the Northeast wing in 1952.
By 1964, the student population was crowding the elementary classrooms. Some grades had more than forty students. Due to the lack of land it was a question as to whether the District would be able to receive State Aid for another addition. The residents were informed through public meetings of the various problems and with their cooperation and helpful suggestions a referendum was passed to add seven rooms and another gym area. This is the west side of the present building.
