Principal's Notes and Highlights

CSA Lincoln Students and Families,

I hope this letter finds you and your family enjoying the summer! We stayed close to home and took advantage of the many great events that Columbus has to offer. Michelle is still feeling well and Calvin says he is ready to be a big brother. We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of Audrey in late September. Calvin won a couple of fish at the fair that he has affectionately named "Po and Po". We have no idea how he came up with this.

You may have noticed that the playground has started to look more like a play-space and less like large mounds of dirt. The swing set is scheduled to arrive on August 7th. It is unlikely the playground will be completed for the first week of school. It needs to be anchored into the ground before the soft surface can be installed. The architect, contractor, Randy Surface and myself have met weekly this summer. We are disappointed in this delay, but want to make sure it is done correctly. This will be unlike any other playground. The Linden Project Committee will soon be sharing more information regarding a very cool experience that will be happening in September. Thank you for your continued support and patience!

Below are a few updates and announcements you should be aware of as we start the school year. Specifically, please review the changes to the PM dismissal procedures. These changes are being made to increase student safety.

  • Do NOT drop off in front of the school on 5th Street or west of the school on Pearl.

  • Only BCSC buses are allowed to drop off in front of the school.

  • Come North on Pearl Street (if you come south on Lafayette you will be caught up in the Central traffic.)

  • Enter the playground area that runs behind the school and turn south on the east side of the building

  • Drop off your student and turn LEFT ONLY out of the campus (this will prevent jams at the 4-way stop).
