Please do not come to the main office for change. The bookkeeper does not make change for students.

CROSSWALK SAFETY
Any student walking home must cross the street at an appropriate cross walk. Please remember to cross the street at appropriate cross walks for your safety.

STUDENT PICK-UP/DROP OFF PROCEDURES
Your child’s safety is of the utmost importance to us at Lincoln Middle School. Please review the following procedures for dropping off or picking up your children at Lincoln Middle School.

When dropping off students, please utilize the drop-off lanes in either the upper parking lot between Lincoln and Woodland or the circle drive off of West Street. While it is also permissible to pick up at either spot in the afternoon, there is very little parking available in the circle drive. You may find it more convenient to pick up your child in the upper parking lot. From 7:30-8:20 a.m. and 2:30-3:15 p.m., during student delivery and pick up times, the gym parking lot is closed to vehicular traffic. Students are exiting and boarding buses, and for safety reasons, we ask that you not try to enter or park in this lot at those times.
Students being dropped off in front of school please be aware and look both ways before crossing in front of cars while getting to the steps.

ATTENTION STUDENTS
If you are going to go outside for lunch, remember to bring a coat to lunch. You cannot leave the lunchroom and or go to your locker to get a coat.

Students, please remember that when you go outside during lunch you have to stay outside until the end of the lunch hour (or until you are let back inside by staff).

Students, when entering the building from lunch, please walk do not run in and keep your hands to yourself.

Students walking the track at lunch are not to jump on or over the fence. Those caught doing so will face consequences.
