    Principal's message

    Dear Lincoln Families,

    I am so excited to welcome our Lincoln students back to campus this week! Our staff has been hard at work preparing classrooms and ensuring a safe learning space for students, teachers, and all of our employees.  Teachers have been chatting with their classes about what to expect when students return to school next week, as there will be some differences.  From signage, frequent handwashing and social distancing to masks and partitions on the desks, there are a number of precautions in place to make sure Lincoln is a safe place for all who enter. 

    As a reminder, students in grades TK-2 will begin on Tuesday, September 29th and students in grades 3-6 will begin on Thursday, October 1st.  If your child is assigned to the AM cohort, they can begin arriving on campus at 8:00 am with classes officially beginning at 8:15.  For dismissal, our TK/K students will be dismissed at 10:30, and our students in grades 3-6 will be dismissed at 10:37.  If your child is assigned to the PM cohort, they can begin arriving at 11:53 (I know, times in education rarely fall on a rounded out time), and classes will officially begin at 12:08.  Students in TK/K will be dismissed at 2:15 and students in grades 3-6 will be dismissed at 2:30. 

    On Friday afternoon, you should have received an email from NMUSD letting you know Monday is going to be preparation day for teachers.   This means there will not be any instruction taking place on this day.  If you have a child in grades 3-6, please make sure they are continuing to access distance learning on Tuesday and Wednesday, as these classes will be continuing online as usual.  Another piece of information you should have received in the same communication is that masks are now required for all students, ages 2 and above.  This means all of our TK-6th grade students will be required to wear a mask on campus. 

    As some of you know, my son started in his hybrid model at our home school last week, and I am happy to report he is the happiest I have seen him in months.  He talks about school all evening long, and cannot wait to leave for school each day.  I truly believe being back on campus, even with all of the changes, is going to bring a smile to all of our students, and I cannot wait to welcome them back! 

    I recognize the hybrid model is difficult for us to manage as parents, and I am so appreciative to each of you for your support. 

    Grounded in Gratitude,

    Dr. DeMicco
