PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Dear Lincoln Parents and Guardians,


Dear Parents and Guardians,


Earlier this week, as previously reported, upon arrival at school, a Lincoln student reported an incident which occurred at the morning bus stop. The Mount Prospect Police were contacted and began their investigation into this serious incident. At this point, any further information regarding this incident will be officially reported through the Mount Prospect Police.


I want to re-enforce how important it is that students report any suspicious or concerning situations to an adult. I am proud not only of the student who first came forward to the front office to report the incident, but of the other students who were at the bus stop as well. I thank them for their maturity and helpfulness as their parents, principals, and community police officers worked with them through the process of gathering information. I would also like to acknowledge the parents of these students. Our students and their families are fortunate to be a part of a community that clearly keeps the safety of its youth as the highest priority.


Furthermore, I want to let all families know that we appreciate their support, confidence, and patience. We are aware that technology allows assumptions to travel quickly should an incident occur at school. Please rest assured that District 57 administration and the Mount Prospect Police Department will always first ensure that our students are accounted for and safe. District 57 and the police department will share communications with families as soon as accurate and appropriate information can be gathered and reported.


February is Black History Month and Mrs. Michelle Walsh, Lincoln’s LRC Director, has shared her picks for learning about and celebrating Black History Month. Please take a moment to browse her newsletter below. Mrs. Walsh’s role as our LRC Director is ever-changing and always vital to the education of all Lincoln students. She works diligently with all teachers to enhance curriculum and spark outside interests for our students. Recently Mrs. Walsh asked to remind families of the following information:



If you have any questions about what our libraries have to offer, or how to help your child best utilize the public library, please contact Mrs. Walsh at mwalsh@d57.org.


Next week is our PTO’s ROAK Week . . . Random Acts of Kindness Week! Please be sure to check out all the information about this important event in this newsletter. We are excited to support the Lincoln PTO and the great activities and fundraisers that they coordinate to benefit our students.


Finally, we have finished a week of optional masking for students, guests, and staff. We respect families’ choices in this matter and ask that parents continue to encourage their children to be thoughtful and respectful of the choices others make or need to make regarding masking. Thank you for your help in this matter.


Have a nice weekend,


Paul Suminski

UPDATED SPECTATOR GUIDELINES FOR LINCOLN ATHLETIC EVENTS REGARDING MASKING


As parents are aware, effective February 7, 2022, Mount Prospect School District 57 is "mask recommended" and by court order can not require our students, staff, or any individuals inside our facility to wear masks. Though District 57 is bound by the court order, other districts that our athletic teams or our spectators visit while at "away games" may not be. Therefore, if the facility Lincoln visits requires masks wearing, we must comply with mask wearing in order to attend.

PTO WANTS YOU TO KNOW . . .
