There is a Lincoln parent meeting at Hamilton tonight at 6:30pm.

the communication on this one was botched - I didn't get an email, just showed up on my FB page.

More botched communication, just in time for the communication survey. Nice touch.

Also, speaking of communications and that survey, apparently they have already switched their thinking AND communications to Lincoln being a high school. When they ask for which schools your child/children attends/attend/attended, Lincoln is not an elementary school option. It's the the "high school" category--although I doubt many parents of people who attended Lincoln for high school are taking this survey!

Editor, please!

Does anyone have an update of what was discussed at the Lincoln parent meeting? I sent an email to Ms. Medsker, and sent her email contact information.
