Reminders and Events

Sorry, No Pets at Pick Up

Parents, we love pets here at Lincoln, however we need to ask that you no longer bring your pets when you pick up your child from school. We have had a couple of safety concerns come up due to pets at pick up. Please do not bring your pets to the group of students waiting for pick up after school. If you have any questions, please contact the school office. lincolnoffice@pella.k12.ia.us

Recess Gear - It's Getting Cold Outside!

The weather has changed! We will require your child to have a coat, hat and gloves anytime the feels like temperature is below 32 degrees. We want all children to be safe while outside. Please send the following with your child each day.


  • Coat
  • Gloves
  • Hat
  • Rain or Winter Boots


Please know that if money is short and you need help with winter weather gear, please stop by and see Sheri or Mr. Schulte in the office. We have donations made each year to help supply those things for students. We would be happy to get winter items for your child. We just need to know sizes for items needed.
