Please complete and submit THIS form in order to request a schedule change. You will need to fill out a separate form for each schedule change request. Please answer all questions completely in order to have your request considered. Submitting this form does not guarantee ANY schedule changes will be made, only that they may be considered. Teachers and counselors have the final decision on whether changes will be allowed.
All schedule changes will be made at the counselors’ and teachers’ discretion, while keeping the following in mind:
1. Graduation requirements MUST be fulfilled first.
2. Electives will be filled only if they are available.
3. If the classes you request are full, no changes will be made to your schedule.
Students, you must attend ALL classes on your schedule until your counselor advises you otherwise, OR until the change appears in your schedule on synergy, whichever comes first.
The Nebraska Department of Education and ACT have announced that LPS 2019-2020 juniors (graduating class of 2021) who were unable to participate during April in-school testing will have an opportunity to take the ACT on September 22 at no cost. We will communicate information about how to sign up and the schedule as soon as we have that information from coordinators. The fall testing will not include the writing portion and scores will not be used for accountability. This testing opportunity is different than ACT National (Saturday) Testing.
WHEN: Tuesday, September 22, 2020
You will not need to register online for this exam, it will be provided by LPS at no cost. More information will be given as the test date approaches.
Food Distribution – Grab-and-Go Meals Weekly Distribution
Lincoln Public Schools continues to evaluate its meal program in an effort to maintain the safety of our community and make sure more children are able to access healthy meals. Based on current restrictions in place by the City of Lincoln, the following changes are being made to the grab-and-go meals provided at schools starting Monday, March 30.
LPS Emergency Pantry:
Following our standard LPS closure policy, the LPS Emergency Pantry will NOT be open while LPS is closed. For more information about accessing the Lincoln Food Bank distribution locations visit their website: https://www.lincolnfoodbank.org/get-food/food-finder/
Lastly, for other community wide resources:
MyLNK is a website (https://mylnk.app) and a mobile app (for Apple and Android – search MyLNK) that has information about community resources. It can be downloaded in a wi-fi environment and then used when wi-fi is not available. The website provides translations in Spanish Vietnamese, and Arabic.
