Hello from Mrs. K.

Hello Lincoln Families,

I hope everyone had a restful, safe Thanksgiving holiday! The staff and I will miss working with our In Person students on campus, but we look forward to returning to In Person instruction on 1/5/21. Please know that Lincoln School is open for regular school hours for the next three weeks. Please call first if a Chromebook needs to be looked at or replaced. We advise families to use the link below if your child's Chromebook is not working properly. Our staff checks it every day and will reach out to schedule a visit to figure out the issue. Thank you! Office number: 847.963.5700

Health and Human Growth Update

Health and Human Growth is part of our D15 curriculum at all grade levels. We have had several questions in regard to providing instruction for our health curriculum during our unique 2020-21 school year. We understand that some of our schools provide this instruction in gender specific classrooms and that due to the advent of not being in our schools, this is not possible at this time. Additionally, conversations surrounding puberty and other sensitive topics are best done while in a traditional classroom or in smaller virtual meetings. However, we also know that because our students at home may not have privacy, this is not the best scenario for delivery of this content.

We have asked our teachers to provide lessons that relate to food, personal care and general wellness as part of the distance learning instruction. These will meet the guidelines for health during our distance learning. Topics that are “sensitive” will not be addressed during distance learning.

If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher.

Chromebook Issues?

Parents should fill this out this form if there is an issue with a Chromebook and then someone from the school will reach out to them for support. If you are picking up a new Hot Spot, the old one needs to be brought back to school.

Didn't Make It To Supply Pick Up?

The office staff will be calling those families who did not come to pick up student supplies. This applies to those students who are long term Virtual Learners, those who may be Live Streaming, or were absent for a length of time. Please come to our office to pick up your supplies if the office or the classroom teacher calls you.
