Important Carpool Updates
Thank you so much for all you are doing to support Lincoln as we work through the road construction. We appreciate that you make every effort to pick your students up promptly after school, but we know that sometimes there are special circumstances. Therefore, we are going to be making a small change to afternoon carpool. Once the last car in the carpool line has given their number, our carpool staff will be clocking out. We will move any students who have not been picked up to the waiting area in front of the office for supervision purposes. If you see the back fence closed, please pull to the circle in front of the office and come in to get your student. We want to make sure that all of our students are in line of sight while they are still on our campus.
– Thanks for supporting us in keeping our students safe!
We would like to remide everyone to pay extra care to not block public access to things such as mailboxes, emergency vehicle designated areas, and especially intersections. Please do not block intersections as this becomes a traffic hazard.
Be extra careful when entering the parking lot and the entire time you are in the carpool line. Do your best to remove distractions and to watch carefully for the aids who are helping to maintain the flow of carpool traffic and especially the students that are trying to leave campus. Drive slowly and please be patient so as to avoid making a tragic mistake.
– We appreciate you and all you do to make this experience as efficient as possible.
JH High Halloween Dance
All Jr. High students are invited to a Halloween dance on Tuesday, October 31st from 3-4:30 PM. It will be for all junior high students and will be held in the Elementary gym at Lincoln Academy. The theme of the dance will be “Barbie and Ken’s Haunted Dream House,” Costumes are approved to wear at the dance and during class time. No weapons (look alike weapons), masks or “blood” of any kind will be allowed. The costumes must also be modest and not offend any group of people. Staff members need to be able to identify students in costume. Jr. High students WILL NOT be participating in the elementary parade.
Elementary & Kindergarten Halloween Parade – Oct 31st
As you prepare for Halloween and if you choose to buy costumes, we wanted to send a few reminders and guidelines:
All students are allowed to wear their costumes to school on Halloween. However, students will not be allowed to wear masks during school instruction time. Elementary students will be allowed to wear them during the parade. Student faces may be painted if a Lincoln staff member can still recognize the student.
Additionally, no weapons or “blood” of any kind will be allowed. The costumes must also be modest and not offend any group of people. Staff members need to be able to identify students in costume.
Halloween Costume Parade, Tuesday October 31st at 1:45pm
All families attending the parade will enter from the Jr. High gym doors and be seated in the bleachers. All elementary classes will pass through the gym.
Morning Kindergarten parade will be at 10:40am and parents will line the hallways outside the library.
Parents, due to the extreme number of visitors to the school on Halloween, no parents will be allowed to enter the elementary side of the building between 1:30-2:25pm.
There will be no student check outs between 1:30-2:30pm on Halloween.
The office will be closed during this time.
Please help us keep all students and staff members safe by following the above instructions.
Special Halloween Lunch
Reminder to all parents, we apologize, but only students will be allowed at the Halloween lunch due to space. Thank you all for understanding!
