    Principal's message

    Dear Lincoln Families,

    Thank you so much for your cooperation over the past couple of weeks as we have navigated the COVID-19 surge taking place across our nation.  These are certainly challenging times, and we are all carrying a little (okay, maybe a lot) of extra stress at times.  Thank you so much for your continued patience and grace, and for cooperating with us in erring on the side of caution when it comes to monitoring students for signs of illness.  We are truly in this together!

    You should have received communication from NMUSD last week regarding changing protocols for COVID-19 notification.  In the event you missed the email, here is the language that was shared:

    Contact Tracing

    Like school districts nationwide, we are experiencing a surge in COVID-19 cases. To provide more timely notification of positive cases we will be updating our contact tracing processes.

    Consistent Mask Wearing

    When there is a positive COVID-19 case in a classroom with consistent mask wearing among all students within that classroom, we will no longer send close contact communications. Instead, all families in that classroom will be notified of a positive case via email. All students in that classroom will be asked to monitor for COVID-19 symptoms and stay home if symptoms develop or if they test positive for COVID-19.

    Inconsistent Mask Wearing

    When there is a positive COVID-19 case in a school setting where there is not consistent mask wearing (such as athletics), we will continue with contact tracing and send close contact notifications to those families with further instructions.

    We are hopeful that this change to our processes will allow us to provide you with more timely communications, while also focusing efforts on positive cases to better maintain healthy schools and work environments. We continue to implement COVID-19 mitigation practices in our schools, such as indoor mask requirement, enhanced ventilation systems, cleaning and disinfecting, and test kits.

    As you may also be aware, the state has made a limited number of over-the-counter antigen test kits available to our school sites.  These kits are meant for student use only and at this time are for students who are either showing symptoms of COVID-19 or who are hoping to return to school after a positive case.  As with most things COVID related, these criteria may change over time, so If you have questions about test kits, please feel free to contact our front office. 

    On a non-COVID related note, our ROARS focus for the month of January is Responsibility.  Thank you so much to our student council officers for sharing the following with students on Friday morning:

    This month we are focusing on responsibility.  Responsibility is organizing your time for homework and other activities.  It is charging your Chromebook each night.  It is coming to school prepared with your snack and lunch.  At home it might look like doing your chores.  Responsibility is planning ahead. 

    Well said, student council officers!  I am so grateful for your leadership on campus.   

    I hope everyone has a great week!

    Grounded in Gratitude,

    Dr. DeMicco
