Lincoln Staff Extends a Warm Welcome to New Lynx!

You are receiving this email because your student has been assigned to Lincoln High School for the 2024-2025 school year.  This first step in your high school journey will be to register for courses.  Please read the full email and watch the video before doing any registration. 

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 Lynx webpage on the Lincoln website to find helpful information.

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 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 complete this form to notify the district that you will not be accepting your assignment to Lincoln (link should be active by Monday, April 15).

Course Registration

Watch the following PowerPoint presentation with important course registration information as well as graduation requirements, course registration and more.  Please also look at the Course Catalog on the Lincoln website for course descriptions, prerequisites and other information that will help you make thoughtful course selections. This will prepare you to complete course registration successfully.

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 registration closes.
