Coops Corner

Dear Falcon Families,

Happy New Year once again! We hope you’re as excited as we are for the second semester of the school year. As we dive into this chapter together, we have some exciting updates and events to share with you.

Firstly, mark your calendars! We are thrilled to announce that our first Winter Formal will take place on January 27th. This magical evening will be filled with music, dancing, and unforgettable memories. We can’t wait to see our Falcon scholars dressed up and enjoying a night of celebration and camaraderie. I’ll be sure to give more details and ticket information soon, so please watch for upcoming announcements.

In addition to the Winter Formal, we are excited to introduce ACT prep sessions this year. We have partnered with Jon Baylor Prep, a renowned test preparation organization, to provide our scholars with the tools and strategies necessary to excel in the ACT. The ACT is an essential milestone in the college admissions process, and we want to ensure that our scholars are well-prepared and confident on test day. More information about the ACT prep sessions, including schedules and registration details, will be shared in the upcoming weeks. We encourage our junior scholars to take advantage of this valuable opportunity.

We are committed to informing you about important updates and events. In the coming weeks, we will share more detailed information about the Winter Formal, ACT prep sessions, and other exciting events at our school. Stay connected through our school website, social media channels, and newsletter to ensure you get all the important announcements.

Thank you for your continued support and involvement in your scholar’s education. Let’s make this semester a remarkable one for our Falcon scholars. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to let us know. We are here to support you and your scholar every step of the way.

We wish you a fantastic semester and look forward to seeing you on January 8th, the start of quarter three!

Library News

Did you know LPS students have a robust digital collection of reference, magazine, and newspaper articles? Gale is a huge database where you can find the answers to almost any question and explore topics of interest. It’s also an excellent resource for research. To access Gale, click on the link on the LPS Portal and choose the most relevant Gale Database for your needs.

Digital Citizenship Tips

At LPS, we teach students that privacy policies are essential and have real-world implications. Topics for a family discussion might include: 

  • What is a privacy policy? (Tells how an application or service will use your personal information, photos, and videos and may include age requirements for the application or service.)

  • Why are privacy policies important? (It’s crucial at a young age to decide how much information you want to share with an application or service and what information you want to keep private).

This Common Sense Media site provides additional information for parents concerning privacy and internet safety.


Student Data Privacy

LPS cares deeply about protecting students digitally. We go to great lengths to ensure that your child’s digital interactions are safe and appropriate, that the data we collect about them is secure, and that we are guiding them to make good digital decisions. Because these efforts are less visible than our physical security efforts, we have assembled this resource to shine a light on these critical measures that are happening in LPS every day:

First Semester Report Cards Available in ParentVUE

To get families information about their student’s grades sooner, Lincoln Public Schools posts your child’s report card in ParentVue soon after January 11. If you have a ParentVue account, you will not receive a paper copy of your child’s report card unless you contact your child’s school office and request a paper copy. The school will continue to print a report card for families without ParentVUE.

Parents at your child’s school and Lincoln Public Schools increasingly use ParentVUE to access student progress immediately, including report cards. ParentVUE provides greater immediacy to information while reducing the environmental impact of printing. 

If you do not currently have a ParentVUE account and would like one, please get in touch with our school office for assistance.

Personal Computing Devices

This time of year often questions whether students can bring/use personal computing devices at school. Where connecting to the LPS network and completing school work is concerned, the answer is “no.” There are several reasons for this, but you should be aware that the LPS Chromebook comes with limits on the websites that can be visited and the applications that can be accessed. You can support teachers’ efforts in managing a consistent learning environment by encouraging your students to use the district-issued Chromebook for all school work.

Counseling Center

SCIP Newsletter

SCIP provides prevention, education, and early intervention services. We recognize that a child’s behavioral health needs must be addressed early on-set rather than waiting until they have progressed to a more critical level and are more challenging to address. For more information about SCIP, contact Kelsey Dady, our SCIP coordinator, at

Focus Programs

LPS has a number of Information Nights and Open Houses for our Focus Programs in the coming months.
