    Good afternoon Lincoln Families,

    We hope you all have had a great week. Third quarter grades are available on The Source. Any student who has an Incomplete ‘I’ grade for 3rd quarter has had their report card and Individual Learning Plan (ILP) mailed home. Students should coordinate completion of their ILP with their teacher to bring their grades up to a C- or better for the quarter and be on track to pass second semester. Any student with an outstanding ‘I’ grade for first semester should also be coordinating with their teachers and/or should plan to attend summer school for credit recovery. More information about summer school coming soon!

    SPS Laptop Return Planning

    As we start to plan for the end of the school year, we want to give advance notice that SPS will be collecting and reimaging all student laptops in preparation for next school year. We are currently working on a plan for student laptops and chargers to be returned to Lincoln in the final days of school and the first few days after school is finished. Please stay tuned for more information coming on laptop return dates. *Please note that any student who will be attending SPS summer school will keep their laptop and charger until the completion of summer school.

    Fall Planning - 2021-2022 School Year

    SPS has just announced that all 104 school sites will reopen in September with in-person learning, while continuing to follow public health and state guidelines. Recognizing that to thrive, students will need supports beyond academics, student well-being is a guiding priority as we plan. Student mental health has suffered during the pandemic. Using federal emergency funds, SPS will be investing in additional mental health services, trauma-informed practice, and working with families and staff to create a culture of care as we make a full return to school buildings. We will share more plans for the coming school year as they become available.

    In-Person Cohort Appeals Process Closing May 31

    The In-person appeal process will end on May 31, 2021. Families will have through May 31st by 4pm to file an appeal online. The appeals form will be removed after the deadline with no further changes to students learning model to minimize disruption for schools as they prepare for end of school year transition.

    School Responses to and Prevention of Sexual Violence: Student Survey

    Seattle Public Schools is committed to a positive and productive educational environment free from discrimination, including sexual harassment. The district prohibits sexual harassment of students, employees, and others involved in school district activities. In order to strengthen student supports, we will rely on a diverse range of feedback from students in high school.
    We plan to gain student feedback with a short, optional, and anonymous survey. This survey asks about students’ knowledge and opinions. For example, are students learning about consent? Do they know where to get resources for support? What could schools and the districts be doing better? Anonymous student survey responses will be shared with the school board, Title IX Task Force, and Health Education Team. The responses will help improve district policy, procedure, and education.
    Students will have the option to complete this 5-10-minute survey at any time before May 28th, 2021 at 5pm when the survey closes. Participation in this survey is voluntary. The survey will include a link to resources for students, which we have also included in this email.
    Students and families can opt out of completing this survey as it contains the sensitive topic of sex behaviors and attitudes per Policy No. 3232. If you would like to review the survey, please contact brham@seattleschools.org and we will make it available to you. If you do not want your student to participate in the survey, please contact brham@seattleschool.org by Sunday, May 16th, 2021.
