On Monday, January 30th, all Lincoln students had the chance to board a school bus and review bus expectations. Following this, we completed our required evacuation drills. We spent this time reviewing expectations to help students to be safe as we all ride the bus at some point during the year, many each day. Please review these expectations with your students and be sure to ask if you have questions.
