Principal's Message

Families' email accounts continue to overflow without a doubt. We continue to strive to keep our newsletters concise and easy to navigate. As always, I encourage parents and guardians to check emails, newsletters, and websites for important school information.

I would like to take just a few moments of your time to publicly recognize Lincoln's technology support staff: Mr. Dave Cessna, Building Technology Assistant, and Ms. Kate Sassatelli, Technology Integration Coach. Their efforts have been tireless in maintaining our staff and student's ability to successfully teach and learn during our remote learning experience. Their "behind the scenes" work is outstanding, commendable, and truly appreciated. Thank you.

I hope all enjoy the sunny fall days ahead of us.
