I hope your family had a wonderful weekend. The past week’s celebration of Dr. King, the return of our kids to “Blended Learning,” and the historic inauguration of President Biden and Vice President Harris instilled in me an incredible sense of renewal and optimism for the days ahead! As we venture into the coming week here at Lincoln, there is a lot to take note of!
Last Friday each Lincoln Eagle was given a new sheet of 30 Covid Stickers. It is imperative for the safety of all kids and staff that students arrive at school each morning wearing these stickers and having been pre-screened by an adult in your household on Power School each morning. While these steps may seem tedious, they are integral and essential components of “in person” learning. Additionally, masks at school are not optional and must be worn correctly by all students and staff personnel at all times. Please consider sending an additional mask to school for your child so they might change during the day if necessary. Finally, please continue to honor the District 90 guidelines for travel and quarantine. Your family’s compliance with these guidelines is greatly appreciated.
I also wanted to more clearly clarify the guidelines Lincoln and District 90 implement regarding student access to remote learning.
If a student or member of their household presents with any symptom related to Covid-19, they are permitted to access “remote” learning until ONE of the following has occurred:
This also applies to siblings. For example, if a 4th grade student presents with a symptom, their 1st grade and 8th grade siblings must also access “remote” learning until one of the aforementioned has occurred.
Additionally, if a child is diagnosed with Covid-19, strep throat, flu or any illness, it is assumed they are too ill to participate in “zoom” and should not access remote learning on those days. Waking up late or having a “slow” start does not constitute an acceptable reason for a student to access learning from home.
I realize that Covid-19 continues to deal us many complexities. However, it is important for us to maintain firm boundaries regarding access to “remote” learning. Please communicate directly with Ms. Godellas, Ms. Gerges or me with any questions regarding this.
Please continue to spread the word about our upcoming Kindergarten Orientation for 2021-2022 – see attached flyer.
I’ve always been a firm believer in the power of Kindness and Gratitude. Therefore, I’m excited to share a new initiative and opportunity for any member of our school community to show some “Lincoln Love” to any staff member, student or volunteer. If you are looking for a quick and simple way to acknowledge a student, staff member or volunteer, please spread some kindness and Lincoln Love by following this link Lincoln LOVE and we will be sure to celebrate and recognize “Lincoln Love” with your individual! Thanks for taking the time to fill someone’s bucket today!
As always, thank you for your continued support of Lincoln. I look forward to seeing some of you at the Science Expo on Thursday. Please never hesitate to reach out if there is anything more I can do to support your family. CG
