International Walk to School Day
Next month we have another great opportunity for our home school partnership and collaboration, our parent-teacher conferences. These are scheduled for Thursday, Oct 6th and 7th. These two days will provide parents and their children the time to meet with your middle school teachers. Parents can sign up for an in-person or virtual conference by following the directions linked below. Please consider reaching out to connect with your child’s teachers as I believe the personal interaction between parents and teachers is one of the most important actions that can be taken to support our students.

FROM THE OFFICE:
October 14, 2022 - Picture Re-take Day
Absences (other than sick days or doctor appointments) during the school year are considered UNEXCUSED unless a pre-arranged absence form is completed. This form allows students to make up homework missed during the absence. Forms must be received at least two school days prior to the absence. Pre-arranged absences shall be limited to 5 per year.
Here is a link to this form - D303 Pre-arranged Absence Form. Feel free to have your child turn this form in to their teacher or submit it to the front office.
FROM THE NURSE:
As a reminder,
All kindergarten students require a complete physical examination with up to date immunizations, a dental examination and a vision examination.
All transfer students should have their health records from the previous school transferred to Lincoln OR get a hardcopy. These health records will include a physical examination with up to date immunizations, a dental examination and a vision exam.
ALL 2ND GRADERS require a dental examination. It may be beneficial to schedule sooner rather than later.
Thank you for your patience during the season of forms! All forms can be found on the district web page under Health Services.
We wanted to let our Lincoln families know that you are welcome to bring a special lunch in for your child on their birthday or half-birthday only. One parent is also welcome to join them for lunch on that day in the lunchroom. Please refrain from dropping off lunches if it is not your child's birthday.

The Run-a-Thon kicked off this week! This is an annual fundraiser for the Lincoln PTO. Students will participate in the Run-a-Thon during P.E. class on September 27th. Parents are welcome to participate with their students that day! Funds raised go right back to supporting Lincoln School, Students and Staff. Please make sure to look for the packet of information that came home with your student. Thanks for your support!
