Happy Monday Lincoln Families,

Our first week of school has passed and I am happy things are continuing on a positive note! Thanks for being a valuable part of making sure we are all organized, safe and happy. However, we could use some more help! Please contact the main office if you are able to work during our lunch hour. Lunch is from 11:20-12:15 daily. If you are available, we could surely use some more hands.

Below you will find pertinent information for this week.

Take care,

Ms. Gordon



6 - Labor Day (no school)

8 - Online Curriculum Night

Just a reminder that the school day starts at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 3:00 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Please note that Wednesday is an early dismissal day, and school is dismissed at 2:30 p.m.

In the morning, playground supervision begins at 7:50 a.m. No student should arrive at school before this time. Students are to line up when the first bell rings at 7:57 a.m. Students will enter the building with their teacher when the second bell rings at 8:00 a.m. Students arriving after 8:00 a.m. are tardy and must enter the building through the main office door. The playground is supervised 10 minutes after school is dismissed.

If your child will be absent or starting the school day late, please contact the school office by calling the dedicated attendance line at 708-665-3067 before 8:15 a.m. You may also notify the office by sending an email to lincolnattendance@op97.org.
