Principal's Weekly E-Blast

See E-Blast for Live Links

Dear Lincoln,

 

October is already here! I want to say a big thank you to Jana Goodstadt, our PTA Room Parent coordinator, for getting our Room Parents up and running this week! And thank you to all our Room Parents for sharing your time and supporting our Lincoln families!

 

IMPORTANT PICK UP/DROP OFF FOR WEDNESDAY: We received a notice on Friday for paving which will take place on Wednesday, October 6th on Rindge Ave. Multiple blocks on Rindge will be closed that day from 7:00 am-6:00 pm. While the pavement company will try to complete the project as soon as they can, we are planning for the intersection of Plant and Rindge to be closed to traffic.

 

Our morning valet zone will be adjusted to the back of the school at the Senior Center parking lot. If you are driving and utilizing the valet please plan ahead to account for the street closures and traffic that morning.

 

Great news, is that we are going to encourage ALL families to participate in Walk to School Day on October 6th!

 

Walk to School Day: Walk to School Day is Wednesday, October 6, 2021. As part of Safe Streets for All and BCHD, students and families are encouraged to start the day off with an enjoyable walk to school while following LACDPH guidelines. See BCHD flyer for more information.

 

 

Inclusion Day- On October 15th Lincoln will participate in Inclusion Day. The intent of this day is to promote disability awareness and support inclusive education practices for all of our students with disabilities.

 

Student Screening Safety:

Please ensure you answer the Student Screening questions daily. It is very important with the addition of the new symptoms per the LACDPH. Be sure to carefully read the questions for non-vaccinated students since that is all of our elementary students.

 

Please ask and answer the following questions for your student before coming to school:

  1. Does the STUDENT have any of the following:
    1. Fever (at or over 4°F)
    2. Chills
    3. Cough
    4. Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
    5. New loss of taste or smell
    6. Vomiting and diarrhea

 

If the answer is YES to any of the above, PLEASE have your student stay home (DO NOT go to school) and contact the front office at the student’s school.

 

Non Vaccinated Students:

Please ask and answer the following questions for your student before coming to school:

  1. Have you been in contact with a person known to be infected with or suspected to have COVID-19 within the last 10 days?
  2. Are you subject to a quarantine or isolation order?

 

If the answer is YES to any of the above, PLEASE have your student stay home (DO NOT go to school) and contact the front office at the student’s school.

 

RBEF Investor Drive "Blitz" Campaign is Over:

As promised last week, here are the final numbers for the annual RBEF Investor Drive "Blitz" campaign. THANK YOU to the 146 Lincoln families who donated $62,959 to secure PE teachers, vocal and music teachers, and supplemental counseling services for all Lincoln students! At the district level a total of $679,252 was raised. Contact Stephen lincoln@rbef.org if you want to know more about where the donated money goes.

 

It is time to walk together again!

The Skechers 13th Annual Pier to Pier Friendship Walk will take place on Sunday, October 24. Join the Lincoln Lions team and let's walk all together from Manhattan Beach Pier to Hermosa Beach pier and back. Thanks to the organizers focus on public education and RBEF channeling the money, the $30 registration fee will get back to Lincoln's general budget. Having AYSO or baseball that day? No worry, you can sign up as a virtual walker! Join the 13 Lincoln Lions who already signed up! Important note: sign up individual walkers instead of fundraising as this allows all funds to come back directly to Lincoln. The goal is to have as many registered walkers as possible. Stay Tuned: the Principal's Challenge is coming!

 

RUHS Jr. Sea Hawk Cheer Clinic: The Redondo Union Cheer Squad is excited to invite K-6th grade students to attend their annual Junior Sea Hawk Cheer Clinic. On October 6th and 7th, participants will learn cheers and dances that they will perform at the RUHS football game on October 8th. For this optional activity, participants will be required to sign a COVID-19 and assumption of risk waiver. See attached flyer for more information.
