Note from the Nurse

Please see this note concerning how to prevent and treat head lice. Like any school, CSA Lincoln is not immune to lice. Please read through these tips and feel free to contact our nurse, Leesa Koopman, if you have any questions.

Hour of Code

On Friday 3rd Graders participated in Hour of Code and had a blast! Students were able to create a Minecraft, Star Wars, or Frozen game. To learn more go to the link below. If your students ask to code at home they can do so at this link as well.

Hour of Code

eLearning Day- Enter to win an electronic device!

We are sending home an eLearning survey about internet connectivity at home. We are collecting this information to better help us prepare for the potential of an eLearning day.


eLearning Day- Upon the 6th snow day, instead of adding on another day at the end of the school year, BCSC will utilize an eLearning Day. Students will be accessing their school work on the computer from home or at designated sites. Have questions? I'm sure you do! There will be more information to come.

For now, here is what we need:

1. Complete the survey

2. Send it back in with your student no later than Thursday, December 17th.

3. Any student who does this will be entered to win an electronic device that will be given out on Friday, December 18th!

Mrs. Thompson Earns a Promotion

Dear Parents,

I want to share some exciting news with you. I have been offered and have accepted a position at the BCSC Administration building as a secretary. This promotion comes at a very pivotal time in my life as I have a daughter heading to college in the fall.


It has truly been an honor to serve you and your children the last eight years as Project Manager and as the school secretary. I love this building and my heart will always be a Husky heart! I will continue to work with Brett to make this transition as smooth as possible. And of course, I still plan to work the basketball games so you won’t be completely rid of me!


Thank you again for sharing your children with me. They have been a blessing and I will miss them terribly!
