Classroom Assignments

Parent/Guardian’s will receive an email letting them know who their child’s/children’s teacher will be for the 2017-18 school year within the first two weeks of August. If for some reason you do not receive the email, the class lists will also be posted at Open House on August 10th.

School Supplies
Lincoln Public Schools provides all essential supplies needed by students for the school year. A backpack large enough to fit a large Tyvek/mailer Friday Folder – and possibly a lunch box – is all that families are asked to provide.
If you are interested in donating supplies, classroom teachers and specialist may share items that they would graciously welcome. Items may be dropped off at the Open House or dropped off at the office at any time. Click here to view wish lists

Nutritional Services

See attached for two documents shared with all parents from Nutritional Services.

The lunch menu is now available for the month of August and can be found online.
