    First Quarter Ends! Grades for 1st Quarter will be published on the Source 11/23!

    The first quarter of the 20-21 school year ended yesterday on 11/5! As we reach the first progress report of the year, we are asking families to check in with their student. Current progress of your student can be found on The Source and first quarter grades will be published on the Source on November 23rd. This is an important time to add some additional supports from school and at home for any student who is not where they want to be. Teachers at Lincoln will be reaching out to all students who are receiving less than a C- in class. It is very important that your student respond to the communication so that supports for learning can be implemented. In addition, teachers will reach out to parents or guardians, and we ask that you please reply to help set up those plans of support. Thanks for your help.

    Yearbook Submissions

    The yearbook could use your help collecting pictures of your kids for the 20-21 yearbook! See the attached flyer, and if you have any photos you can submit to us for the following categories please do so as soon as possible. We really appreciate your help.
    Skills and hobbies, fashion, Lincoln spirit gear, kids with their pets, any sports, arts at home, being in nature, working from home, or anything else you think we can publish.

    Flu shots

    We are excited to announce that our Lincoln High Teen Health Center will be hosting a Flu Vaccine Clinic for ALL Seattle Public School students. We will have both the flu shot and nasal flu vaccine available.
    Where and When?
    We will be hosting clinics on November 16th, and November 18th from 9am-7pm. The clinic will be held in the parking lot in front of Lincoln High School. Families can drive up and stay in their car while receiving their shot(s).
    Who?
    We can provide flu shots and flu mist for all students who are registered with an SPS school. If you have students who are still in need of their flu shots, please refer them to us.
    How?
    To receive services from the Lincoln Health Center, we just need a simple (abbreviated) registration form completed. These registration forms can be found online at the LHS Website under the Teen Health Center tab, sent directly to your email or we will have physical copies with us at the clinic for those who do not register online prior to their appointment.
    Once the student is registered, they can call our clinic at 206-548-5760 or email KaylaO@neighborcare.org to book a time slot. We are happy to see kids who drive up/walk up without an appointment; however, they may have to wait until our Nurse Practitioner is available.
    There is no cost for SPS students!

    Department Talk – Social Studies

    The Social Studies Department has written a newsletter to share with families a little more about the courses offered this year! It is attached to this week’s family email and shared on our website. Check it out!  Social Studies November 2020 Newsletter

    9th Grade College Bound Scholarship Opportunity!

    The College Bound Scholarship is a state scholarship program open to income-eligible middle schools students in 7th and 8th grades. Due to challenges brought about by COVID-19 last spring, the College Bound Scholarship sign-up window has been extended for the class of 2024. Eligible 9th graders in the class of 2024 now have until November 30th to complete their College Bound applications. Seattle middle schools have historically signed up 99% of their eligible students and we do not want the class of 2024 to miss out on this opportunity. Please contact your school counselor for more information and to sign up!

    Kingmakers of Seattle

    To extend an opportunity to Black male students across the district, the Office of African American Male Achievement has launched Kingmakers of Seattle Extended (KOSE). Kingmakers, an elective program for Black male 7th through 12th grade students, currently operates in four SPS schools in partnership with the City of Seattle. The virtual extension is a five-week, 10 session program that will connect more Black male students across the district to share experiences, participate in affirming curriculum that addresses stereotypes and focuses on their cultural identity, and elevate their voice.
    There are two cohorts in the first semester: November 10 - December 10 and January 5 - February 4. Sessions will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 - 5 p.m. Black male students in 7th through 12th grade are encouraged to apply to the program by Friday, Nov. 6.
    For more information and to apply, please go to: https://www.seattleschools.org/district/calendars/news/what_s_new/kingmakers_extended

    Notice for Parents of Students Taking AP Courses

    We appreciate your flexibility as we work to navigate logistics surrounding the AP Program at Seattle Public Schools. We are writing to inform you of important and time sensitive updates for your student who is currently enrolled in one or more AP courses. Please review the following information:
    Exam Registration
    All students who wish to take AP exams must register by the end of the school day on November 12, 2020. Please contact your AP Coordinator [insert name and contact info] if your student still needs to register.
    Testing Options
    At this time, the expectation of the College Board is to have students test in-person, and there is not an option for online exams. The College Board may decide later to offer an online testing option, but we have no information about that at this time. As you know, Seattle Public Schools are operating 100% remote right now, and we do not know if Seattle Public Schools will be open for in-person learning when tests are administered in May. If we are not open, and the College Board does not offer an online option, students will likely not be able to take the AP exams.
    Payment & Refunds
    In previous years, we have collected AP exam fees during the registration period. However, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided not to begin collecting exam fees until February. Our collection window will run from February 1 through March 5, 2021. We hope that there will be more information available by February, so that you and your student will be able to make an informed decision on whether to pay for AP exams or not. If you do pay for the exam but decide later to cancel the exam, you will receive a full refund. Please note that refunds take time to process and will likely not be available until summer of 2021. The fee is $102 per exam; however, students who receive Free or Reduced Lunch do not have to pay this fee.
    We realize that the uncertainty around whether or not students will be able to take AP exams is difficult. We will provide more information as it becomes available.
