Distance Learning Update
Lincoln County Middle School Parents, the teachers at LCMS have prepared additional packets for students that do not have internet access. These packets can be picked up on Wednesday, March 25th from 8:00-12:00 at the LCMS office. If you do not have internet access and would like the packet delivered to your home please call the school during this time.
For students that have internet access, teachers are creating a calendar to keep students engaged and on track with their work. Please see google classroom for the calendar. All parents should sign up for their child’s remind app that teachers provided at the beginning of school. If you have internet access and would like to check out a Chromebook you can do this on Wednesday, March 25th from 8:00-12:00 at the LCMS office. If you need to pick up a Chromebook after 12:00 LCMS parents can pick up a Chromebook at the high school between 2:00-6:00. High School and Elementary school will be available on this same day from 2:00-6:00 if you would like a Chromebook. Please see their website for more information from them. If high school students cannot come between 2:00-6:00, they can come to the middle school between 8:00-12:00 on this day.
Thank you and please do not stress over the work provided for your child. We are trying to keep students engaged. As a parent, you should designate how much time each day your student spends on classwork. The calendar that teachers have prepared should give students a little more structure; however, you can ultimately decide what is best for them. Please call the school if you have any questions.
