Lincoln Construction Impacts to Pick-Up and Drop-Off

As we gear up for the 2023-24 school year at Lincoln Middle School, we want to keep you informed about some important changes happening on the school campus. As you hopefully know, this past spring our community approved the District’s $100 million bond proposal, with one of the major projects being the renovation of Lincoln. Construction and demolition at and around the northern section of the building is now underway. During the summer, our construction manager worked to separate the building into two sections: the southern half that will be occupied by students and the northern half for demolition.    

To ensure the safety of everyone, including students, faculty, staff, and parents, the area undergoing construction will be surrounded by a fence. This is to prevent any accidents or mishaps during the construction period.   

There will also be changes to drop off and pick up of students. Please see the attached map for a visual.     

  • Drop-Off Points: Due to the construction, the entrance from St. Louis Street will be closed for drop-offs. If you drop off your child, please use the circle drive from West Street. Also, kindly remember that parking is only allowed in the front angled parking area, not anywhere else along the circle drive.   
  • School Bus Information: If your child uses the school bus, there will not be any changes in their drop-off and pick-up location. They will continue to be dropped off and picked up outside the gym, as they did last year.   
  • Special Program Students: For students in special programs, their bus will pick them up and drop them off at the entrance to Floor Zero, as indicated on the provided information graphic.   

Finally, we cannot stress enough how crucial it is for everyone to pay attention to the posted signs and follow the instructions given. This will ensure the safety and well-being of all students, staff, and visitors during this transitional period.   

We understand these changes might be a bit inconvenient, but please know they are necessary to improve the school facilities to benefit our students. Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to a successful and safe school year ahead.
