11/8 Lincoln Log

Lincoln Families,

What a treat this weekend was! The past seven days have been full of emotion and anxiety, so the beautiful weekend was a much welcome reprieve from the events of the past week.

We are looking forward to welcoming our kids back to Lincoln at the conclusion of the current “adaptive pause,” on Monday, November 16. Obviously, D90 will continue to monitor both local and regional metrics to ensure a safe return to school. Here is a link to the most current D90 Dashboard Metrics for School Decision Making. Assuming it is safe to do so, we will be welcoming all K-4 students back to Lincoln on Monday, November 16.

Since it’s been a few weeks, here again is the Lincoln Guide to Blended Learning. Please make special note of your child’s entrance and exit as well as other elements of this document that will hopefully make your family’s transition back to Lincoln as exciting as possible.

Our teachers and staff look forward to seeing you this week at our Fall conferences this week. Teachers will be sharing your child’s report card with you virtually during conferences. We will also be mailing you a copy of your grade report for the 1st trimester.

Finally, this week we will do our best to virtually celebrate all the Veterans that are close to us. Please pass along any Veterans Day photos to include in our video montage by Tuesday, 11/10 at 5:00pm. Photos can be sent to me via Seesaw, text or email. Additionally, all kids are encouraged to make a Veterans Day card that will be delivered to local veterans. Cards can be dropped off in the Lincoln School lobby.

Thursday, November 12, will be a supply pick up day for any families who are opting to continue learning remotely at the conclusion of the adaptive pause. Please be sure to come by Lincoln on Thursday so your child has all the supplies necessary for Monday, November 16. Supplies will be in the Park Avenue lobby.

As always, please never hesitate to reach out with anything I can do to better assist or support your family during these crazy times! Have a wonderful week. CG
