Teacher Assignments & School Supplies

Teacher Assignments

Classroom teacher assignments will be emailed to families on the morning of August 7th.

School Supplies – Families Provide

Lincoln Public Schools provides all necessary supplies for students throughout the school year. Families are only asked to provide a backpack and tennis shoes. The backpack should be large enough for students to take a large Tyvek/mailer Wednesday Folder as well as papers to and from school. Tennis shoes will be worn when your student attends PE class.  This does not need to be a separate pair of shoes.  Also, if your child wishes to bring a cold lunch, you will need to provide a lunchbox for your child.

If you would like to donate school supplies, classroom teachers and specialists always welcome donations of items/supplies, which may be dropped off at Back-to-School Night or in the office throughout the school year (please label with teacher name, if desired).
