Message for Clinton Families – Week of April 27

April 25, 2020

Hello Clinton Families,

I hope this message finds you and your families healthy and safe!  Thank you for continuing to support your student(s) with remote learning during this time.  I have seen many Clinton Comets during classroom Zoom meetings.  It has been great to see their faces, hear their voices and view what they are learning!

Below you will find helpful information from LPSDO.  You should also be receiving a weekly email from your child’s teacher on Sunday with an overview of this week’s learning schedule.  Here is the LINK to the CAMP (Computer-Art-Music-P.E.) activities for this week.

Grab and Go meals will continue to be at Clinton on Mondays at Door 3 from 11:00 – 12:30. 

Wishing you all the best!  Let me know if you have any questions….take care!

Thank you,

Angee Luedtke – Principal

These WiFi hotspots are free and simple to set up. Please note that only the LPS Chromebooks for grades 2 – 12 will be able to use the device to connect to the LPS network. This will allow students to access remote learning materials and communicate with their teachers via their Chromebook.

LPS Foundation COVID-19 Emergency Fund

The Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools is now accepting requests for emergency assistance from LPS students and their families who are affected by COVID-19.

Families of LPS students in need may request funds to help with:

  • Past due rent
  • Past due mortgage
  • Upcoming rent 
  • Childcare 
  • Other bills (car insurance, cell phones, etc.) 
  • Other emergencies as necessary

Preference will be given to families who have not yet submitted an application for emergency assistance due to COVID-19. The request form is available atFoundationforLPS.org. The request will be reviewed after the online application is submitted. If approved, payments will be made directly to the payee (i.e. landlord, childcare provider, insurance company, etc.). Funds will be distributed May 8-11.

Picking Up Items Left at School

We are following the current health directive measures in place and not allowing students into our buildings at this time to retrieve their belongings.
