MR. STEEN WANTS PARENTS TO KNOW . . .

LINCOLN HOMEWORK REQUEST GUIDELINES

Homework request AFTER an absence:

· A homework request can be initiated after students have missed at least two days of school. Teachers are not required to provide homework before the two-day minimum.

· If parents and students are interested in obtaining homework prior to the two-day minimum, then they are encouraged to check team webpages on the Lincoln website.

· Upon returning to school, students must turn in homework that was given to them before the absence. Students, however, will have one day for each day of absence to make-up any work that was not given to them before the absence.

· Students are responsible upon their return to check with all of their teachers for any homework, tests, quizzes, projects, or other assignments that need to be made up.

Homework request BEFORE an absence:

· A homework request before an absence should be initiated by contacting a teacher at least three days prior to the absence.

· Teachers are not required to provide homework before an absence. If a teacher does provide home- work, please be aware that the homework is the teacher’s “best estimate.” There may be changes in the homework upon the student’s return and/or an alternate assignment may be given.

· Parents and students are encouraged to check team webpages on the Lincoln website for homework.

· Upon returning to school, students will have one day for each day of absence to make-up any work that was given to them before the absence.

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM PROSPECT HIGH SCHOOL

Updated Prospect Football Game Admissions


Prospect High School is excited to see so many future Knights at football games on Friday nights, but we are updating our current admissions process due to the increased number of disciplinary issues with middle school age students in and out of the stands.


Effective Sept 24: Non-high school age students will only be admitted with their parent/guardian(s) at the gate. Students are expected to sit with their parent/guardian(s) during the game. We are no longer allowing groups to be admitted with only one paid adult.

ASK THE OFFICE STAFF!

Question:

Can I just drop off some Tylenol/allergy medicine for my child?

Answer:

No. Medications (over-the-counter or prescription) are dispensed as follows:

  • If appropriate paperwork is on file in the health office, an administrator or the school nurse can administer the medication to your child.
  • If a parent wants to bring medication to school on an as-needed basis, the parent must wait in the office to actually administer the medication to the child. Parents may not drop off medications for students to take independently. Do not send medications in backpacks or lunch boxes.
