    Dear Lincoln Families,

    This past week we had our first School Site Council meeting during which we talked about our School Safety Plan.  This is a document we create each year to outline our emergency procedures as well as focus areas for improvement.  One of the items we discussed was the dangerous situation created when families and/or individuals cross Pacific View Drive without utilizing the crosswalk.  We all recognize the location of the crosswalk is not in the most convenient of places, but due to Newport Beach rules and regulations, we are not able to move it closer to the school’s main entrance.  Please, please, please utilize the crosswalk at morning drop-off and pick-up.  In addition to the safety concern, Newport Beach police officers will likely be present in the coming weeks to write tickets to those crossing the street without using the crosswalk.  Thank you so much for your cooperation.

    I mentioned last week that October is Internet Safety / Digital Citizenship month.  Our students have been receiving instruction in digital citizenship as well as internet safety, but the parents at our School Site Council meeting brought up a great point that many parents are seeking assistance in this area as well.  As you know, when students are using their Chromebooks at school, they are protected by our district’s filters and firewalls.  However, these filters and firewalls do not extend to your homes or other Wi-Fi access points.   It is up to parents and guardians to ensure filters and firewalls exist in the home.  It is also up to parents/guardians and caregivers to closely monitor student technology use at home.  In the coming days, I will be sending out some resources to help parents navigate this rather tricky aspect of parenting in the year 2019. 

    I hope everyone has a fantastic week!

    With Gratitude,

    Dr. DeMicco
