Student Life


Yearbooks for each level are now on sale through our new company, Herff Jones.  LCS produces three different yearbooks, and direct links to purchase yours are below. 




Please note that students in both Lincolnton and Denver share a combined book at each level, so there is no need to differentiate between campuses. 


Inclement Weather

All weather related and other school closing announcements will be immediately posted on the LCS website at www.lincolncharter.org.  We will also send a message to each family detailing any significant schedule changes (delays or school cancellations).  Lincoln Charter’s inclement weather process does not correspond with Lincoln County Schools’ (or any other school district’s) inclement weather decisions.

We are looking  for lead staff Monday through Friday (on scheduled school days, of course) in the mornings from 6:20 to 7:55 This staff position would be working with our Before School students as well as  our continental breakfast prep and service.

We are willing to have several folks job-share this position, so even if you are interested in working only a day or two in the morning, this could work for you!  It’s a great way to earn a little extra income, while helping our Before School Program prosper!
