Our Mission:

"We are committed to creating a school that knows no limits to the academic success of each student." -No Excuses University Pledge

Cold Weather Coming

Please make sure your child is dressed for the weather. Children are now outside 40 minutes each day. We added a 20 minute rotation on Burke Field/front blacktop in order to keep our numbers down in our playground areas. If the temperature is above 10 degrees, we do go out for 40 minutes. 0 - 10 degrees we are outside for 20 minutes. Below 0 we are inside for all 40 minutes. Of course, we diligently check temperatures/wind chills daily during the winter months. Dressing in warm coats, hats, mittens, snow boots and snow pants are a must! Thank you.

Bulls Family Night

Here is the link to reserve your $10.00 100-Level Side tickets. Thank you for organizing, Mrs. Muccianti!

Mask Wearing Reminder

Please make sure your children have masks that fit properly. If a mask is too big, it does not cover the nose. When possible, send your child with an additional mask as students have had some wet or torn masks throughout the day. Please wash cloth masks regularly.

Vaccination Clinic

CCSD15 Health Services Team is working with our partners from Jewel/Osco to bring an optional vaccination clinic for our 5-11 year old students in November. An email with more information (dates, time, how to sign up) will be shared with our families soon.


If you’re interested in scheduling an appointment now, you can visit vaccine.cookcountyil.gov.

Kindness Day November 13, 2021

Since Kindness Day is on Saturday, 11/13/21, we will be sending home a flyer to color on Friday, 11/12/21. Students can also use chalk on the playground blacktop on Friday 11/12 to write messages of kindness. Link to hand out. Thank you, Lincoln PTA!

Conferences 2021

Conferences are coming up Monday, 11/22 from 12:00 pm - 8:00 pm and Tuesday, 11/23 from 7:00 am - 11:00 am. Parents must sign up for a 20 minute slot with the classroom teacher. Parents will need to be masked and sign in at the classroom door. Please be on time, as many teachers have tight conference schedules. No students are to attend conferences this year. If parents need to attend separately, the 20 minute slot can be split into 10 minute times for each parent. If you cannot make the conference on these dates, please schedule a phone conference on another date. Thank you.

Lost and Found Bin is Full!

Is your child missing a jacket or a water bottle? Please come in and take a look through our bin. We have a full bin of many coats and jackets.

Student Online Personal Protection Act

Privacy and student data protection is a key priority for the District. Our three main technology departments (instructional technology, technology, and data services) work to make sure our systems and vendors comply with the requirements of the Student Online Personal Protection Act or SOPPA, which regulates how student information is protected by school districts and education technology vendors they use. Our student privacy web page outlines our privacy related actions and protective measures.


We also employ a number of measures like on-site filtering, student device monitoring, and security tools which protect our network from outside threats. Students participate in digital citizenship curriculum, and staff can employ tools to support students in making good digital choices. Lastly, our district participates in several state and national consortiums, collaborating with other districts to keep informed on best practices and new resources that may support our data privacy policies.
