Principal's Weekly E-Blast

See E-Blast for live links...
 
Dear Lincoln Families,
 
Congratulations to our Student of the Year Kate Brucia! Kate Brucia is our Lincoln President as well as an extraordinarily talented student. We have GREAT students here at Lincoln and she still stands out. I could not be more proud or pleased by her selection as SOY. Congratulations to her, her family and teacher.
 
The Lincoln Team would like to send a positive message to our families and students as we get closer to the end of the year. This week marks the last push of distance learning before we move into our End of Year Activities/Traditions beginning the week of June 1.

The Zoom link will be emailed to all yes responses two days prior to the meeting.
Redondo Beach Small Business Support. In these three weeks, we received over 250 small business submissions! We hope that by sharing this information with our community, we can help generate customers/clients for these RBUSD family owned businesses during this difficult time. Please view this document, which has the list of the small businesses, the services they provide, and their contact information. See attached for list! Have not submitted? CLICK HERE to fill out your business information.

Battle of the Book Lists. The BoB lists are out! Try to get ahead with summer reading for Battle of the Books. See attached lists.

School Facilities Remain Closed. Although local beaches and parks have opened with restrictions, this is just a reminder that our playgrounds, parking lots, and fields still remain closed to the public. Please do not attempt to enter or loiter on school property. Trespassing may result in a citation from the Redondo Beach Police Department. Thank you for remaining a positive role model for your child/ren and keeping everyone in the community safe. Also, because we are legally responsible for any activity taking place on our school district properties, we are not “opening up” any of our properties for internal (sports and/or band camps, clubs, etc..) or external (enrichment programs or community groups, etc..) rental requests until we have clear guidance from the Los Angeles County Office of Education (and others). When we are able to open up our schools, we will open up our facilities once again for inside and outside rental use. I hope this helps clarify the District’s position/circumstance.
