    Good Afternoon Lincoln Families,

Families who don’t complete the survey will default to staying fully remote. Please see additional information below in our family email.
    Third quarter ends on April 8th. Please check in with your student and monitor progress on The Source. If you have specific questions about missing assignments or classes your student isn’t making adequate progress in, please reach out directly to that teacher.

    Students choosing to remain completely online for the remainder of this school year will be assigned to Cohort C.
    At this time, we believe the schedule beginning April 19 will look like:

    • Monday: All cohorts will meet online in the morning for periods 1, 2, 3. In the afternoon,Cohort Awill come to school for in-person support and extension activities while cohorts B and C other will log in for synchronous support and extension online for the second half of periods 1, 2, 3.<
