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:
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.
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.

Calling all trivia buffs!
Please join us for Lincoln’s first Family Trivia Night! Lincoln families are invited to participate in a fun evening of virtual family friendly trivia. This event will be held in user friendly Kahoot/Zoom platforms. Families will compete against one another for points with the top 3 families being awarded prizes. Please note due to COVID regulations all participants must be from a single family household. Advanced registration is required and a portion of the proceeds will help support the Lincoln PTO.
You can register HERE in the Lincoln PTO Webstore. For those who have registered a link will be sent prior to the event.
We are happy to announce that this year we will be offering a 2020-2021 Flip Book! This condensed “yearbook” allows us to provide school pictures and snapshots of our year in review. The book will be sold for purchase through our school picture distributor Van Gogh. More information to come in the following weeks.
The theme for this year’s Cover Contest is “Be safe and Show your Lincoln School P.R.I.D.E.” If your child is interested in submitting a design for this year’s contest, please be sure it is submitted to Mr. Godfrey by Monday, March 22. All designs should be submitted on a plain while sheet of paper with the students name on the back. Tune into Mr. Godfrey’s Morning Messages for more information.
Lincoln School is excited to virtually meet poet and artist, Cleo Wade. She will be sharing her new children’s book “What the Road Said” as well as how it is to be a poet and writer. Her book is hot off the presses – it will be released the day of her visit! It can be purchased online through Anderson’s. All books (and signed bookplates) will come to Lincoln for distribution to the students (unless a different address is given). Deadline to order will be March 30th. Please contact Mrs. Brauweiler if you have any questions.
