November 19th, 2021
I hope this week's news finds you well and that you are looking forward to our break next week. Please note, we will not have school next Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and the Monday after Thanksgiving. I wish you and your families a very joyful Thanksgiving and truly want you to know how incredibly grateful our staff is for our Lincoln Community.
A special THANK YOU to our PTO and Mathnasium for the kind words and special treats shared with the staff on Wednesday. Your continuous thoughtful gestures brighten our days!

*Early Release - every Wednesday at 2:20pm
*Soft Landing for Morning Entry - 8:00-8:15am at our Underwood Ave. entrance. Please utilize our 'Hug and Go' area and be mindful of the handicapped parking area in the middle. Also, our neighbors would ask that you not block their driveways during this time and dismissal.
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.
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
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!
Our libraries are part of the Wisconsin School Libraries Digital Consortium. Enjoy!
