Lincoln High School Class of 2024! As we come to an end of a year like no other… we want you to know how excited we are to welcome you to the Shipyard, next school year!

Tips For Distance Learning

  1. Create a schedule for your children.
  2. Turn off the News and Talk. The news can be upsetting, especially to our children. Continue to let your children know it is okay to feel however they are feeling. PBS News Hour- is news that is appropriate for kids grades 6-12
  3. Stay Connected with Family and Friends. Here is a list of ideas!
  4. Enjoy the family time. Ideas to stay Healthy, Educated, and Entertained at this time.
  5. Be patient & give each other grace.
  6. Stumped? Turn it over to the teachers: Have your child email the teachers.
  7. Check in With Teachers: Periodically, check in with teachers if your child is struggling.
  8. Just Start Today: Take away the pressure and overwhelming feeling. Some kids may have many assignments piling up and they don't know where to even begin. Tell them to just Start Today! Start with the lessons that are posted for today. Don't worry about the lessons from the past days or even weeks.
