Principal's Message

Dear Lincoln Families,


It is with a heavy heart that I share the passing of one of our beloved Hornets, Estrella Vazquez Rodriguez who was a student in Ms. Tabadisto's class. Please keep Estrella’s family, friends, teachers and support team in your thoughts.



Update regarding last week’s lockdown: At this time there are no findings to share regarding the report of a student in possession of what was perceived to be a gun on campus. We are aware of some rumors that circulated on social media regarding this incident. None of those rumors are true. We will continue to keep you informed if there is any relevant information to share.


On February 1st We kicked off Black History Month with a lunch time Capoeira performance featuring Nadia Taylor, Class of 2022.


According to the Smithsonian Magazine, “Capoeira developed in Brazil, derived from traditions brought across the Atlantic Ocean by enslaved Africans and fueled by the burning desire for freedom. It soon became widely practiced on the plantations as a means of breaking the bonds of slavery, both physically and mentally.”


On Friday, February 4th Assemblymember Dr. Akilah Weber held a press conference at Lincoln High School to speak about a new bill she is moving forward to make the vaccine verification process more efficient for schools. Rondell Crowder and Ariana Moreno, both Class of 2022 spoke at the press conference. More information about the event can be found here.

L6 - Saturday School

"L6" Lincoln 6th Day of School (also known as Saturday School) is an additional instructional day offering academic support in various core subject areas to help students reach their academic goals. L6 program is designed based on the need of the school community and students registered to attend. L6 provides instruction for a minimum of four (4) hours 8:00 AM - 12:00 PM and must conform to the regular minimum school day requirements. A nutritious meal provided by SDUSD’s Food Services Department will be offered to all participating students during the instructional day.


Currently L6 will be offering Math and English support for those students that need extra help. In the near future, we will be implementing additional core subject curriculum, including

but not limited to physical education, arts, music, theatre, online learning, robotics, technology, etc. to help support specific student needs.


Students attending may make up all day school absents and class tardies, while participating in the L6 instructional day.


L6 participation is made available to all students on a voluntary

basis and is funded by sites recovering Average Daily Attendance (ADA) for

full day absences.


Students must enroll to participate by the Thursday prior to the next L6 session. Students can enroll ----->HERE<----- or scan the QR code above.
