The Lincoln Lightning

"Your SPARK of information!"

October 29th, 2021

Good Afternoon Lincoln Families:


The weather held out and we had a spectacular Fall Friendship Parade! Smiles, singing, laughing, and dancing brought so much joy to our Lincoln community today! Thanks so much to all of you for your support and flexibility as we navigated through COVID protocols and unexpected weather. Lincoln truly is the best school in the UNIVERSE!


HAVE A WONDERFUL 3 DAY WEEKEND!

Mask Reminder

This is a friendly reminder that students should arrive at school each day with their own mask or other face covering. Each school building maintains a supply of masks; however, these are not intended to be a student’s primary face covering each day. Please remind your student to bring their mask (and a spare) or other face covering to school with them daily.

Volunteers/Visitors

In an effort to make Lincoln the safest possible environment for our children, we ask that all visitors and volunteers please sign in at the office (Driver’s License required) and always wear a nametag identifying yourself as a visitor, including volunteering on our playground and our outdoor classroom. All staff members have been directed to ask adults not wearing proper identification to return to the office. We know you agree that safety must be our number one concern.

Also, we request that all volunteers and chaperones complete a background check verification form. We no longer use paper applications. In compliance with board policies, our district began this procedure a few years ago. We’re sorry for the inconvenience but this practice ensures the safest environment for our children. The completed background checks are valid for three years.

Breakfast Served 8:00 - 8:15am

Please note that we will be serving breakfast from 8:00am - 8:15am during our soft-landing. We will stop serving at 8:15am so that students will have time to finish up and be ready to learn for our school start time of 8:20am. If your child would like breakfast, please try to have them at school early during our soft-landing.

Overdrive/Sora App

The Wauwatosa School Libraries invite our students to read or listen digitally anywhere and anytime using Overdrive on your web browser or the Sora app on your mobile device. Students may access with their district google log in. Happy Reading!
