Principal's Message

Dear Lincoln Families,

I hope your Thanksgiving break was filled with rest, fun and time with loved ones.

I continue to be in deep gratitude for our faculty and families who are committed to the success of our students. On the Thursday and Friday before we went on Thanksgiving break I got to spend some time in the new gym with our seniors who were working hard on completing their UC and CSU applications. There was an army of volunteers from the universities, Cal SOAP, Wahupa, Talent Search along with our counselors supporting our seniors to complete their applications. Our students cheered on one another as each of them submitted their applications. It was an inspiring experience.

All families should have received their student’s Quarter 1 report card in the mail. Please contact Ms. Jarvis if you did not receive your student’s report card so we can verify that we have the correct address on file for you. You can also view final grades in the PowerSchool Parent Portal.

Second quarter progress report grades will be available for parents to view on Friday, December 17. The second quarter will end on January 21, 2022.

Vaccination Mandate Information

Under a vaccine mandate approved by the Board of Education, San Diego Unified will require students who are 16 and older and who wish to continue learning in-person to be fully vaccinated. To meet this timeframe, these students should have received their first dose of a two-dose vaccine by November 30. The Vaccination Van will be providing first- and second-dose shots of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, Johnson & Johnson vaccines, booster shots, and vaccines for children aged five to 18. No appointments are necessary. All children under the age of 18 will need parental consent. Students can receive a vaccine with a signed consent form: English, Spanish, Vietnamese, Somali, Tagalog, Arabic, and Swahili; all other students will need to have a parent present.
