Dear Lincoln Families,
 
Welcome back from Spring Break! Families just a friendly reminder that these last ten weeks of school are essential to your child's education...we don't wind down, we speed up. Attendance is always important, but it is EXTRA important during this time. Please continue to plan family trips and other absences around school days. I also want to highlight an avoidance of missing statewide testing on April 30-May 2 (5th graders), May 21-24 (3-5 grades) and June 3-5 (3-5 grades). Thank you for your support...we can't do it without you!
