LINCOLN HILL H.S. & LINCOLN ACADEMY
Family Update - Week of February 13, 2023
The second semester is off to a great start! Throughout the semester, it is important that students stay caught up on their learning. Attending school everyday is a way to ensure students do not fall behind. It is also important that students demonstrate their learning by turning in their assignments on time.
During advisory last Friday, students were given the option to continue using the Missing Assignment Plan form we used towards the end of first semester if they found it helpful. It is a great way to reflect on any missing assignments and make a plan to get caught up if they have missing assignments. Students may get copies of the form every week from the office or their teachers (see form below).
Any student who received an "F" or a partial credit last semester will be required to monitor their grades and assignments every week using the Academic Monitoring form (see form below). The form will have requirements students need to follow to better ensure their success of passing all of their classes this semester. As a reminder, there is additional afterschool support for all students (see schedule below). If one of these days do not work, please make arrangements with teachers for another time that will.
- Monday: Math
- Tuesday: English
- Wednesday: Science
- Thursday: S.S. / Mr. Clack's Elective Classes
Free internet hotspots available
The Stanwood-Camano School District, through a grant from T-Mobile’s Project 10Million, has hotspots available to those students who do not have internet access available at their homes and need service to extend their learning.
The hotspot allows for 100GB of data. That’s enough data for 140 hours of streaming school videos or 5,000 hours of internet research or 200 hours of online college test prep!
Please let your school know if this is a need your student has.

REMINDER: Partnering in Student Success
Supporting Student Success:
Our teachers work hard to support students academically everyday. Partnering with students and parents/guardians in this work is very important. Supporting students in staying caught up on their work and turning in any missing assignments is very important not only for student learning, but also in maintaining grades that will earn credits towards graduation.
Below are some steps you can take at home to support students academically:
- Review any missing assignments with your student by having your student login to their Skyward account. Locate the missing work and support your student in completing it. You may reach out to teachers with any questions you have.
- Review assignments with low scores and have students ask their teachers how they can redo an assignment or retake an assessment to show their new learning to earn a better grade.
- Arrange a time for students to get additional time and support from their teacher. Please refer to the Student Support section below in this newsletter for days of the week students can stay after school for additional support. (NOTE: If a specific day/time does not work in the student's schedule based on the teacher schedule below, please contact the teacher to find another day/time that will work).
We see our students working hard everyday and we are here to support them in their learning. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our teachers if you have any question.
REMINDER: Credit Retrieval
REMINDER: INCLEMENT WEATHER
As the weather forecasts indicate, we may see cold weather this winter. Our Superintendent, Dr. Rumbaugh, has shared with everyone how we make the determination to delay or close schools due to ice, snow, flooding, etc.
Safety first! We consider the safety of our children on buses, our student drivers, families driving and walking to school, and the safety of our staff, especially our bus drivers.
We monitor weather patterns using multiple methods 24/7. In particular, we use a tool called Accuweather that is specifically designed to support school districts in looking ahead at weather patterns.
When there is a concern about school starting on time, our staff begins driving the roads throughout the district as early as 2 a.m. We take photos, check road conditions, monitor traffic, look for hazards, etc. We typically drive the roads multiple times in the early morning to determine if conditions are improving, worsening, or staying the same.
We strive to decide about the school day by 5 a.m. Once the decision is made, we begin communicating with families and staff. We communicate through:
Autodialer (via School Messenger)
Email (via School Messenger)
Predicting the weather is a challenge, and our primary goal is to ensure that the roads are safe, our campuses are easy to navigate, and the weather does not impede a safe school day.
REMINDER: Closed Campus
