Principal's Message

Dear Lincoln Families,


Yesterday marked two years since the announcement was made that schools would close due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. No one could have predicted what we had to go through to get to where we are today. School closures, remote learning and social isolation have taken a toll on all of us. We know our students are best served when they are in person at school. We are committed to providing our students with what is needed for their success in school. Please click on the following link if you would like to refer your student to receive additional support. ENGLISH SPANISH.


Update on Mask Mandate

As a reminder, all students, staff and visitors must wear masks while indoors at all schools and other district properties until Spring Break. After students and staff return to campus on April 4 following Spring Break, masks will continue to be strongly recommended but no longer required. All other COVID-19 mitigation strategies, policies and safety precautions remain in place.


As a school community, it is important to keep in mind the unique feelings and circumstances of each individual in their choice to continue wearing a mask or not after April 4. We fully support the decision of all students, families, and staff. Harassment or bullying of anyone based on this personal choice will not be tolerated.

Below are some great resources for staff and families to help students understand and ease fears and anxiety they may be experiencing:

Coping with Anxiety as Mask Mandates Lift (Michigan Health)

How to Deal With Bullying Over Face Masks in School (Boston Children’s Hospital)



San Diego Unified remains committed to fostering a culture of respect among all members of our school community. Thank you for your partnership in this effort to focus on helping all students feel safe and valued in a place of learning and growth.
