~NEWS FROM MRS. HUGHES~

Hello Lincoln Families ~


We are off to a great start for the 2021 school year. It was so wonderful to see everyone last Thursday. Students and staff alike were so happy to be back together at school. Thank you all so much for sharing your children with us. We love our Lincoln Lions!


This week, we are off to a wet start! Thank you all for your patience during our last few days of school dismissal. Kindergarten parents have been especially patient as we make sure every student gets where they need to be. The weather was a bit crazy yesterday afternoon. The lightning and wind started to feel unsafe at times. We will keep students in classrooms and out of the rain and lightning when possible. If we have another storm like the one yesterday at dismissal time, I will direct all students and teachers to remain in classrooms and we will dismiss them one by one. Please just wait in your vehicle and we will bring students out when it is safe. Thank you for your patience and understanding.


As I'm sure you've heard, we are experiencing a rise in COVID cases in our area. In accordance with CDC guidelines, we are STRONGLY recommending masking for all teachers, staff, students and visitors to our schools. We do NOT have an actual mask mandate in place, but we are strongly recommending masking inside. Please check out the link below from the CDC regarding their guidance for schools.

When we all stay healthy and use our prevention strategies, school can stay open and kids can keep learning. Thank you all for your partnership. As always, if you have any questions, please call our office.


Have a great day,

~BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT~ Tuesday, August 17th from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.

This is a great opportunity to meet your child's teacher and hear about all the amazing things planned for the classroom. There will be an all school information session at 6:00 in our cafeteria. We will have two, identical 25 minute sessions: 6:20 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. in classrooms. There will be a break in between so you can make it to the next session or stop and buy a T-Shirt. :)


PTA will be selling school T-shirts! Get ready for Spirit Days!

You can use cash, check or card. $15 for youth sizes and $20 for adults. Let's show that school spirit!


Mark your calendars: Tuesday, August 17th!

~KIDS NEED TO BE HOME IF THEY ARE SICK~ PLEASE!

I'm sad to report this but we have already had families send their students to school, knowing they have sickness in their home. Please, please keep students home if they are showing ANY signs of being ill. If you have a case of COVID in your home or you know students have been exposed, please keep students home.


If you are unsure about what to do, please call our office or health aide, Kim Plawchan and we can answer any questions you may have.

We all need to do our part to keep everyone safe and keep Lincoln School open for learning. Our goal is to not shut down any campus this year! You can help with that goal! We want students in class, learning!
