3/21 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,

Happy Spring and happy early Spring Break! This year has been quite a ride, so I’m not sure who’s more excited about Spring Break: the kids, teachers, or the principal!  Whatever your plans may be, I hope you enjoy the week with your family.   

As we do each year, we will usher in Spring Break with our Spring Break Spirit Week. Last week, the kids all voted. So here are their selections for our 2021 Spirit Week:

  • Monday: Messed up Hair or  Hat Monday
  • Tuesday: Movies vs. Sports: Wear a shirt from one of your favorite movies or sports teams
  • Wednesday: Lincoln School Spirit Day
  • Thursday: Pajama Day and D.E.A.R (Drop Everything And Read)
  • Friday: Vacation Friday: Sport your shades, flip flops, favorite vacation shirt, or anything that makes you think of vacation.

With Spring Break only days away, we realize that many families may use this time away from school to travel outside of Illinois. Lincoln and D90 continue to adhere to the guidance of the Cook County Department of Public Health: Cook County Department of Public Health Travel Guidance . If you are planning to travel to a state that is currently designated as “Orange,” your child will need to submit a negative Covid-19 test or adhere to a ten day quarantine prior to returning to school. So that we can be adequately prepared for school after the break, as soon as possible, please share with your child’s teacher whether your family will be providing the school with a Covid-19 test or if your family will be quarantining for ten days upon return from any travel. Sharing this information with teachers in advance will be extremely helpful as we plan for school in April.

*** The Cook County Department of Public Health releases updated travel guidance every other week (anticipated March 23). Therefore, please continue to monitor this link for the most up to date travel guidance.***

Upon the return from Spring Break, we will resume full school days for the first time since the beginning the Covid-19 Pandemic. Please be sure to review Lincoln’s Guide to FULL DAY Blended Learning for vital information related to the return to full days.

Most notably:

  • Classes will resume on Tuesday, April 6 2021
  • School Hours: 
    • AM Kindergarten: 8:20AM – 11:05AM
    • PM Kindergarten: 12:25PM – 3:10PM
    • 1st-4th Grade: 8:20AM – 3:10PM

Each year, the state of Illinois requires that all public schools hold an “Erin’s Law” presentation for all students. “Erin’s Law” requires that all public schools in each state implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program. We are excited to again partner with Victor Pacini in presenting this important information to our kids. In the past, Victor has personally visited Lincoln. However, this year he has created virtual presentations that will be shared with our kids during the week of March 22. Here, you will find a link to his parent video that briefly outlines his presentation. Victor Pacini Parent Video-Peace of Mind

Finally, if you haven’t yet completed the 5Essentials Survey, please take a few moments to participate. Lincoln is in need of 20% of our families to participate in this survey. We are currently at a 17% participation rate. Please take a few moments to provide your feedback on this important survey tool. 
As always, thank you for your continued support of Lincoln. Please never hesitate to reach out if there is anything more I can do to support your family. Wishing you and your family a wonderful Spring Break.

See you for a FULL DAY of school on Tuesday, April 6.

3/14 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,

It’s hard to believe that exactly 365 days ago we were frantically rushing around the school compiling iPads, book bags and other resources to send home with your kids, for what we thought just might be a few days. Who would’ve guessed then the journey that we were in store for. As President Biden eloquently said in his address to the nation last week, “While it was different for everyone, we all lost something — a collective suffering, a collective sacrifice, a year filled with the loss of life and the loss of living for all of us. But in the loss, we saw how much there was to gain in appreciation, respect, and gratitude. Finding light in the darkness is a very American thing to do.” Thanks to each of you for support and kindness as we continue to reinvent our craft as educators. With that same kindness, empathy and support, we will continue to be models of resilience for our kids. 

With Spring Break rapidly approaching, we realize that many families may use this time away from school to travel outside of Illinois. Lincoln and D90 continue to adhere to the guidance of the Cook County Department of Public Health: Cook County Department of Public Health Travel Guidance . If you are planning to travel to a state that is currently designated as “Orange,” prior to returning to school your child will need to submit a negative Covid-19 test or adhere to a ten day quarantine.

*** The Cook County Department of Public Health releases updated travel guidance every other week (anticipated March 9 and 23). Therefore please continue to monitor this link for the most up to date travel guidance.***

As we continue to prepare for extended school days, lunch and incorporating “maskless” time into the school day continues to be the biggest hurdle we face in planning for a longer school day. As referenced in Dr. Condon’s message/survey to families last week, lunch will likely take place in unique places such as the gym/hallway floors and outdoor picnic style lunches (weather permitting). These spaces provide for maximum distance and will best honor all safety protocols and guidance. In the event the decision is made to increase the length of our school day, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have an interest in volunteering to support our school between the hours of 11:00AM-1:00PM.

Each year the state of Illinois requires that all public schools hold an “Erin’s Law” presentation for all students. “Erin’s Law” requires that all public schools in each state implement a prevention-oriented child sexual abuse program. This year we are excited to again partner with Victor Pacini in presenting this important information to our kids. In the past, Victor has personally visited Lincoln.

Here you will find a link to his parent video that briefly outlines his presentation. Victor Pacini Parent Video-Peace of Mind. Should you wish to opt your child out of this presentation, please let me know no later than Friday, March 19. 

Finally, if you haven’t yet completed the 5Essentials Survey, please take a few moments to participate. The Illinois 5Essentials survey is designed to generate a comprehensive picture of the inner workings of our schools. Teachers, parents, and students will be able to share their insights and perceptions about our schools as we develop school improvement plans. Students in grades 4-8, teachers, and parents/guardians will be able to participate in this online and confidential survey that is based on 20 years of research at the University of Chicago. The survey will be open for participation until April 2, 2021.

As always, thanks for your continued support of Lincoln School. Please never hesitate to reach out if there is anything more I can do to support your family. Wishing you a wonderful week ahead.

3/7 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,

I hope you enjoyed the sunshine this weekend. Although it is still a bit chilly outside, I’m definitely enjoying the sunshine and the daylight hours getting longer! This week looks to be one of the nicest of 2021! 

With Spring Break rapidly approaching, we realize that many families may use this time away from school to travel outside of Illinois. Lincoln and D90 continue to adhere to the guidance of the Cook County Department of Public Health: Cook County Department of Public Health Travel Guidance . If you are planning to travel to a state that is currently designated as “Orange,” prior to returning to school your child will need to submit a negative Covid-19 test or adhere to a ten day quarantine. So that we can be adequately prepared for school after the break, as soon as possible, please share with your child’s teacher whether your family will be providing the school with a Covid-19 test or if your family will be quarantining for ten days upon return from any travel. Sharing this information with teachers in advance will be extremely helpful as we plan for school in April.

*** The Cook County Department of Public Health releases updated travel guidance every other week (anticipated March 9 and 23). Therefore please continue to monitor this link for the most up to date travel guidance.***

We’ve spent the past several weeks preparing for the possibility of returning to a full school day after the return from Spring Break. While this decision has not yet been confirmed by the D90 School Board, at Lincoln we have been busy behind the scenes planning for the possibility of new schedules as well as other countless building logistics that will need to be modified to ensure the safety of all. One such logistical change will be students attending specials (Art, Music, PE, LIbrary and STEM) more frequently and  “in person.” Therefore, beginning this week, in addition to PE (which has been “in person,” since December), all grade levels will begin attending a second special class “in person.” This slow roll out will allow our incredible specials teachers the opportunity to sample how their instruction and physical space might best safely accommodate our kids for “in person” instruction. 

As you can imagine, lunch and incorporating “maskless” time into the school day is perhaps the biggest hurdle we face in planning for a longer school day. As referenced in Dr. Condon’s message/survey to families last week, lunch will likely take place in unique places such as the gym/hallway floors and outdoor picnic style lunches (weather permitting).  These spaces provide for maximum distance and will best honor all safety protocols and guidance.

2/21 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,

I hope you enjoyed the weekend and the balmy weather, despite the snow that is forecast for tonight, it was nice to be above twenty degrees!

Spring conferences are this week. All conferences will be held via Zoom. It’s not to late to sign up for a time to meet with your child’s teacher using the attached information for conference instructions.

Additionally, please note there will be no school on Friday, February 26. Please also note that on the original D90 School calendar, students and staff were off school on Monday, March 1 in observance of Pulaski Day. However, due to calendar adjustments, classes will resume on Monday, March 1 after the three day conference weekend.

In the event your family will be traveling outside of Illinois during the upcoming long weekend, please be sure to comply with the updated Travel/Quarantine Guidance recently released by the Cook County Health Department. The foundation of safely re-opening our schools is keeping our students safe. Therefore, if you are traveling, please comply with this guidance and do your part to keep our kids safe and schools open. Thank you for your continued compliance with this guidance and keeping our kids safe.

Each year, we ask your family to participate in the Illinois 5Essentials Survey. Again this year, District 90 will participate in the annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials survey that is designed to generate a comprehensive picture of the inner workings of our schools. Teachers, parents, and students will be able to share their insights and perceptions about our schools as we develop school improvement plans. Students in grades 4-8, teachers, and parents/guardians will be able to participate in this online and confidential survey that is based on 20 years of research at the University of Chicago. The survey will be open for participation until April 2, 2021. To participate in the 5Essentials Survey, please click this link: Illinois 5Essentials Survey.

Please continue to support our students, staff, and volunteers through our Lincoln Love campaign. Showing kindness and appreciation are more important now than ever! Click here to send your Lincoln Love.

Last day to order Bad Kitty books – Thursday 2/25

Nick Bruel, author of Bad Kitty, visited Lincoln virtually on Thursday. He read a chapter of his new book, demonstrated how to draw Bad Kitty and answered questions. Did you know it takes 9 months to create a Bad Kitty book?

If your family would like to purchase a Bad Kitty book, you have until this Thursday 2/25. All books will include a signed author bookplate. Using the link given, families will order directly online with Anderson’s. Unless stated otherwise, books will be delivered to Lincoln and distributed to the students.

Attached is the order form with five different titles available. The link is also available here:
