Lincoln Middle School
February 5, 2021
REMEMBER! Starting Monday, February 8, school starts at 7:30am and ends at 2:30pm. This applies to all students - remote or hybrid.
I would be remiss if I did not acknowledge and thank Mr. Eric Johnson and the entire custodial staff for their tireless efforts to keep our walkways and parking lots as clear as possible. Last weekend "graced" us with at least 8 or 9 inches of snow. I am sure we had all hoped that would be enough snow for a while but last night's snowfall and ice kept our custodians at it again! Thanks to the whole crew for their commitment to our safety.
The entire district is in need of substitute teachers and substitute instructional assistants. If you, or someone you know, is interested in this opportunity, this link will provide the information you need to start the process. Please feel free to forward the link on to people you think might be interested in working as a substitute. Substituting in schools is a great part-time job and we hope you will consider applying!
I think we have gotten the message out there, BUT . . .
Monday, February 8 is the first day of our transition to full-day hybrid scheduling!
These links are helpful and contain lots of information!
Finally, I want to thank Mrs. Walsh, our LRC Director, for her research and hard work to provide a variety of reading opportunities to celebrate Black History Month. The Covid-19 pandemic has made it a challenging year to be and learn together as a whole school, but I hope our families will be able to set aside just a few moments sometime this month to reflect on the importance of equality, unity, and above all, respect for one another.

Your student can return earlier if they are evaluated by a medical doctor and undergo Covid testing as directed by MD. In order to return to school prior to the end of 10 days, you will need a note from your MD stating Covid status, diagnosis and return to school date.

SUPPORT D57 FAMILIES IN NEED
COVID-19 has presented many unique hardships and challenges for some of our family members, friends and neighbors. Some parents have asked if it’s possible to make a financial donation to help support District 57 families who are currently in need. The District has set up a system to facilitate this for anyone who is interested. We will distribute the collected funds to families, based on formal requests that are made. If you would like to donate, simply go to this link and click “Make a one-time payment.” Fill in your student’s name, school and grade, and click “COVID-19 Donation to District 57 Families.” Fill in your information and donation amount, then proceed to the payment section. Thank you so much, in advance, for your kindness and generosity.
Those who are in need of support can fill out this online form. Names will only be seen by select District personnel who are distributing the funds. Thank you.
Mr. Adam ParisI, District 57 Assistant Superintendent for Finance and Operations
