April 9, 2021
Dear Lincoln Prairie Community,

If there was ever a time in the last year that felt normal for us here at school, this week was definitely it! With 80% of our students back, warmer weather and all the “normal” school activities (state testing, Track season, small unpredictable events and a ton of planning for end of year fun)!  It didn’t get lost on us that despite many things that are still uncertain and out of our control, much is going well with our students, staff and families! 

With more students back at school, we’ve seen an increase in active participation and engagement in student’s learning, as well as more socialization and comradery from students. Whether students continue to learn in the Remote setting or In Person, we know that with increased participation and engagement, the year will end on a high note!

Please remember, if you are an In Person learner and need to work remotely or will be absent, you need to call the attendance line. In Person learners are expected at school all 5 days per week. If your child is a Remote Learner and will not be online, please also call the attendance line. 

Yearbook Information

With a date set for school portraits to be taken at LP, we are now able to include these in the yearbook.  This is very exciting!  In order to be able to include official school portraits in the yearbook we need to extend our due date with the yearbook company, which means yearbooks will not arrive before the end of this school year.  When the order arrives, yearbooks will be mailed to our 8th grade families and any families that are leaving Lincoln Prairie.  All others will be able to get their yearbook orders in August. 

If you already turned in your form and payment but no longer wish to order due to the new arrival date, please contact Mrs. Gajdos at [email protected].  If you have not had a chance to order your yearbook, there is still time.  Click the link below to access the order form.  Thank you!
