New Gahanna Lincoln High School Sneak Peek
In Person or Virtual Viewing Options
As we continue working through our Phase II projects, development of the floor plan for the new Gahanna Lincoln High School is well underway. While there is still much to do and many decisions to make, we are proud to share the progress we have made so far with our Gahanna-Jefferson community.
Please join us for a “Sneak Peek” at floor plans and site use options on the current campus for the brand new Gahanna Lincoln High School.
An opportunity will be provided at the end of the meeting for participants to provide feedback!

District and School Communication
We would like to share some information about the best ways to communicate with our district staff. Emails, phone calls, and connecting through group messaging apps set up by a staff member are the most appropriate methods.
It is always our district goal to respond within 24 hours, however, we encourage staff to refrain from checking email in the evenings and on weekends so they can have time for themselves and their families. If you have a concern or question that needs immediate attention, please call the building office for assistance and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
Fourth graders at Lincoln Elementary are celebrating the life of Martin Luther King Jr. by holding a "Penny War" to collect money to purchase books for a school in need. Stay tuned to find out the class winner!
Middle School South
Keep bringing in your pop tops!
Congratulations to Gahanna Middle School South's C3 Club (Character Counts Club) for organizing a successful pop tab collection for the Ronald McDonald House. C3 has been able to fill two backpacks full of pop tabs thanks to donations from students, staff and their families. Collection boxes will remain in the cafeteria for future donations.
