A Message from Principal Gordon
Dear Lincoln Families,
Thank you for your patience with my late communication this week. I hope that you had a wonderful Spring Break and have been enjoying this beautiful weather. As we are continuing to plan for our upcoming full-day on-site learning, I will be in touch with details surrounding student schedules and lunch.
Dates to Remember:
4/6 - No School for Students
4/19 - Picture Day (see details below)
Picture Date is coming on April 19th!!
Picture will take place during the morning.
Parent's/Guardian's will have the opportunity to sign up to bring their child to Lincoln for their picture to be taken. There will be individual tents set up just off the cul-de-sac on Kenilworth Avenue where you can drive up and keep a safe distance. You will receive an email with these details next week.
Please click here to pre-order your pictures. The school code is 51404Q.
Due to every student not being onsite to have their picture taken, there will not be a group class photo for purchase.
