Dear Lincoln Prairie community,

We are looking forward to seeing many students back in person next week! As we prepare for our shift in life here at school, we appreciate all of the support families will provide as we implement In-Person learning. We will take into consideration what best supports students in both the Hybrid and Remote learning models. We ask that you have patience and provide us grace as we work through the logistics. Hybrid families have already received an email from me on Wednesday outlining expectations and information. They will be receiving an email from their child’s teacher today. Please continue to reference this information as you plan for next week. 

Hybrid Reminders for Monday

Please read and reread the information sent home Wednesday so you and your child are prepared. Remember to complete the screener app to determine whether your child is able to attend school. Also, please remember to call the attendance line if they are staying home as well.In addition, when leaving a message on the attendance line, please state the reason for your child’s absence. Please make sure your child has their mask, a water bottle, their snack, their lunch, their Chromebook or iPad, charger, headset and any other supplies their teacher has asked them to bring. As a reminder, we will not be allowing students to school if their screener has not been completed or if they do not present their green Screener Card. Don’t forget, the orange lanyard is to attach to their mask to ensure they don’t get lost or dropped throughout the day. 

Remote Learning Trimester 2 Material Pick Up

On Tuesday, Oct. 27 from 4 – 6pm, Remote Learning families will come to pick up student materials for Trimester 2. All Hybrid students will receive their materials while here at school.
