Posted: | Updated:
Lincoln Staff Extends a Warm Welcome to New Lynx!
Welcome letters were emailed to the parents of all NEW students assigned to Lincoln for the 2023-2024 school year on Friday, April 7. Please check your email for this communication. If you are a new student family and did not receive the email please email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can confirm your contact information. The following information is what was sent in the email.
We look forward to building a strong partnership for success with our new Lynx students and their families. If you have not already done so, please visit the Information for Prospective Students page to find lots of helpful information. The first step in your Lincoln high school journey will be to register for classes. Please read all the following information and watch the video before doing any course registration.
Not Attending? Let Us Know
If your plans change and you will NOT be attending Lincoln, please let us know. A parent/guardian should send written notice to email@example.com please include student’s full name AND the school they will be attending instead of Lincoln. Dropping your enrollment helps us with staffing adjustments and may open a seat for students on the waitlist for Lincoln. Please also take a moment to complete this form to notify SPS enrollment services so that your assignment to Lincoln for 2023-2024 can be dropped.
Watch this video to learn more about course registration as well as other important information. Please also look at the Course Catalog for course descriptions, prerequisites and other information that will help you make thoughtful course selections. This will prepare you to complete course registration. If you did not already receive a welcome letter with the PowerPoint PDF and would like a PDF copy of the PowerPoint used in the video so you can go through it at your own pace and access any links, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration is NOT on a first come, first placed basis so you do not need to register right away. Please take time to review all the provided materials and make reflective choices. All course selections for all students will be processed at the same time after the registration is complete.
ALL students will register for courses using the following Forms link effective 4/27/2023
ALL future 9th grade students have been pre-loaded into the following courses, Intro to Lit 9A/B, World History 1, Chemistry/Physics A (graduation requirements) and Human Centered Design (Lincoln course requirement). ALL current SPS 8th grade students have also been pre-loaded into Math based on the courses currently being taken in middle school but non-SPS students WILL select math as part of the registration process.
ALL future 9th students have also been pre-loaded into Personal Fitness and Health (graduation requirements). Those will be removed by the Registrar after registration for students selecting 2 yearlong courses as their electives.
