Middle School Madness
Departure/Arrival for 4/11 Field Trips
The charter bus will be staged in the parking spaces between the MS/HS building and the K-1 building. Parents, please follow the traffic pattern to drop your students off near the flagpole in front of the MS/HS building. Busses will return to the same pick-up locations. Please use the student lot for parking as you wait for your students to return. That will ensure that parent vehicles do not block the space that the charter buses will need to use. Please contact jonathan.bealer@lincolncharter.org with questions.

6th grade parents need to drop students off at 7:40am. We will leave LCS at 8:00, and return to campus around 5:15pm.

7th grade parents need to drop students off at 7:15am. We will leave LCS at 7:30, and return to campus around 5:15pm.

8th grade parents need to drop students off at 5:45am. We will leave LCS at 6:00am. The early time  is so that we can catch our scheduled ferry to Bald Head Island. We will return to LCS on 4/12 around 4:00pm.
