Due to the inclement weather, all Lincoln Charter after school activities are cancelled for 12/8 (athletics, club meetings, the HS theater production, etc.). A separate e-mail to all athletic families will be sent with additional information. After school care will run a reduced schedule, until 4:30pm.

Have a great, safe weekend.
