    Good Afternoon Lincoln Families,

    We hope your week has gone well. End of 3rd quarter is fast approaching (4/8) so we encourage you to take time with your student to review progress on The Source and make plans with teachers where your student isn’t making adequate progress. We know this continues to be a difficult time for many of our students. We shared resources last week to that we hope you found useful. We want to encourage you to check in with your student and promote positive self-care.
    Please welcome Ms. Hope Hallett who will be supporting our counseling team as interim counselor for the remainder of the school year. Ms. Hallett comes to us from Chief Sealth International High School. Ms. Hallett will be working with our counseling team supporting students with last names A-G. You may reach Ms. Hallett by emailing lincolncounseling@seattleschools.org.

    Upcoming Dates

    • March 22: Distribution/Library Curbside Pickup; 3:30-5:30PM
    • April 8: End of 3rd Quarter
    • April 12-16: Spring Break

    Plans for In-Person Instruction

    As news becomes available for any in-person instruction or plans for the spring/next year, we will communicate this out to our students and families. Please continue to monitor these plans from the central office: https://www.seattleschools.org/resources

    Message from the School Nurse

    With the potential of in-person instruction, it is time to update your information with the school nurse. Students with life-threatening conditions (diabetes, anaphylaxis/allergies, seizures) should have the following to the school nurse before your student comes back to school.
    ~ medication orders 
    ~ updated health care plans
    ~ 3-day supply of emergency meds
    Additionally, if your child needs to take medications during the day, they’ll need to fill out the authorization for medications at school form as well as bring in a supply of that medication to be kept in the nurse office.

    The Mutual Exchange of Information form that some health care facilities use for their patients with life-threatening conditions has been attached, but some use their own form. If recommended by your doctor to be filled out, please use the form they prefer. Annual Student Health Information Form. 

    Forms can be faxed to the confidential nurse fax line 207-743-3205.

    Seattle Public Schools Condemn Hate Crimes

    For more information, visit: 

    Seattle Public Schools Condemns Hate CrimesThe past 12 months have undoubtedly tested the tenacity and resilience of everyone. Each crisis has touched our collective lives in different ways. While there are signs of hope, it is also clear that our nation and our Seattle community face ever-growing threats to our physical and emotional well-being.

    Anti-Asian violence and hate crimes have increased significantly since the beginning of the pandemic. The Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino, analyzed hate crimes in 16 of the nation's largest cities, including Seattle, during 2020. Crimes targeting Asian Americans rose nearly 150 percent while hate crimes overall decreased by seven percent. Here in Seattle, our Asian Pacific American (APA) communities have felt incidents of hate, intolerance, and violence.
    Seattle Public Schools remains steadfast in our opposition to acts of hate and racism. We stand in solidarity with our Asian Pacific American community and are committed to supporting all of our students, families, and broader community in the wake of these acts of intolerance. We recognize the alarm being felt and raised by APA colleague, students, and community. We have reached out to our APA community partners seeking their input on how to reach students best in context to their community needs.
    There are over 7,000 students enrolled in SPS who identify as Asian. Their contributions to our city's past, present, and future continue to enrich the district. This is embodied in namesake schools like Alan T. Sugiyama High School, Aki Kurose Middle School, and Wing Luke Elementary School.
    We Must Educate to Combat Misinformation and Racism
    It is not enough to condemn these acts, as a public-school system we must also educate. It is important that we are all prepared with information to combat misinformation and racism. We're stronger as a community when we all do our part in the fight against discrimination. Below are a variety of resources that are available for our students and families:

    Athletics Update

    Our athletic season is off to a great start. We have over 300 students participating this season. Safety remains our highest priority, and we have several safety measures that have been put in place for practices and competition. Among these include making our competitions closed to the public. We understand that this is a disappointment to many of our families and community members, but it’s a key component of our district-wide plan to keep our athletes safe.
    We have begun to live stream select sporting events at Lincoln. Please visit our ASB YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiZiET6faxUxf9tD6bc6CJQ. We still need subscribers to make it easier to stream these events, so help us spread the word (we need 1000 subscribers).

    We need your help! Please join our ASB YouTube page!
