1st Quarter Report Cards available now on Skyward Family Access

Dear Lincoln Parents,

The 1st Quarter Report Cards for all students in grades K-5 have been posted to Skyward Family Access today. Report cards were not posted on Friday as we encountered some minor technical challenges before the weekend, but all has been adjusted.


For our Kindergarten and 1st Grade Families, this is the first year of Standards Based Report Cards. What does this mean for your child and understanding their academic performance? Our Lyons 103 Curriculum Director, Mr. Darek Naglak, created a parent-friendly video and handbook to further explain standards based grading and report cards (located on the district website (click here)).


If you need assistance with locating your child's report card within Skyward Family Access, please click here.


Teachers were engaged in a variety of learning sessions during Institute Day today, and please remember students also do not have class tomorrow for Election Day. We are eager to welcome them all back on Wednesday morning after their extended weekend!


Kind regards,

Principal Silva

Estimados padres de la Escuela Lincoln,

Las boletas de calificaciones del primer trimestre para todos los estudiantes en los grados K-5 se han publicado hoy en Skyward Family Access. Las boletas de calificaciones no se publicaron el viernes porque encontramos algunos desafíos técnicos menores antes del fin de semana, pero todo se ha ajustado.


Para nuestras familias de Kindergarten y primer grado, este es el primer año de boletas de calificaciones basadas en estándares. ¿Qué significa esto para su hijo(a) y para comprender su desempeño académico? Nuestro Director de Currículo de Lyons 103, el Sr. Darek Naglak, creó un video y un manual para padres para explicar con más detalle las calificaciones basadas en los estándares y las boletas de calificaciones ubicadas en el sitio web del distrito (haga clic aquí).


Si necesita ayuda para ubicar la boleta de calificaciones de su hijo(a) dentro de Skyward Family Access, haga clic aquí.


Los maestros participaron en una variedad de sesiones de aprendizaje durante el Día del Instituto hoy, y recuerde que los estudiantes tampoco tienen clases mañana para el Día de las Elecciones. ¡Estamos ansiosos por darles la bienvenida a todos el miércoles por la mañana después de su fin de semana extendido!


Saludos cordiales,

Directora Silva

Parent/Teacher Conferences / Conferencias de padres y maestros

Virtual Parent/Teacher Conferences will take place Thursday, November 12th (12:45-3:45 and 5:30-8:00pm). Teachers have begun reaching out to families to schedule a mutually convenient meeting time, and they will continue to do so through this week.


Conferences are an opportunity to continue the partnership between parents and staff, and each conference will last approximately 10 minutes in order to maximize the number of families that can be accommodated.


Also to maximize the number of families that can be accommodated, parents of students in grades 3-5 will only meet with the homeroom teacher. If you are a parent of a student in grades 3-5 and would like to meet with the non-homeroom teacher, please email, call, or send a message via Class Dojo to the teacher. The teacher will contact you to schedule a conference on or as close to November 12th as possible.


Once the parent conference time has been confirmed, teachers will send each family a unique Google Meet link invitation (via email/Class Dojo). The Google Meet link will be unique to each family to ensure the confidentiality of each parent conference.


If a conference is missed, please reach out to your child's teacher to reschedule. Teachers will also follow up and reach out to parents either on November 12th or after if a conference is missed.


From your email:

1. If you will be using your smartphone for the conference, Download the Google Meet app to your phone before November 12.

2. Click to open the email from your child's teacher about Parent Conferences.

3. Inside the email, click "Join with Google Meet" under the heading Video Call and next to the video camera symbol.

4. OR, click the blue link under the heading "Joining info - Join with Google Meet" that begins with meet.google.com/

5. If there is a diagonal line through the microphone and video, then please provide your phone access so that the teacher can hear and see you during the conference.

6. Click the blue button "Join" to join the conference.
