Lincoln School of Early Learning
South Coast Head Start, a no cost early childhood educational program for low-income families, is currently open and still enrolling children for our current school year!
South Coast Head Start, a program of Oregon Coast Community Action, offers education and support services to qualifying families at no cost! The program offers fun, researched-based curriculum, healthy meals, inclusive services for children with disabilities, and health screenings with follow-up support for all enrolled children. Services are available for pregnant mothers to children age 5.
We have expanded program options with Baby Promise and Preschool Promise in select areas. Priority for enrollment is based on child age, family income, disabilities, and other factors that demonstrate a need for services. Children in foster care, experiencing homeless, or receiving public assistance are automatically eligible for services.
The Head Start approach to school readiness means that children are ready for school, families are ready to support their children’s learning, and schools are ready for children. Head Start is a leader in the early childhood field with a strong, clear, and comprehensive focus on all aspects of healthy development, including physical, cognitive, and social/emotional development, all of which are essential to children being ready for school.

Dear Lincoln Families,
On Friday, Oct. 30th, Governor Brown announced a new set of state metrics for opening schools and the guidelines put forth by Oregon Department of Education have changed again. With these changes, more students are being allowed to attend school on site if the county wide metrics are met but this comes with stricter safety guidelines we must follow. It also will effect space in our buildings, resources and transportation.
Some of the changes you will see at Lincoln will be stricter rules with face coverings. The new guidelines specify that all students and staff must wear masks at ALL times. Face shields will NO longer be allowed and gaiters will only be allowed if they are 2 ply. We ask that Lincoln families be able to comply with these new guidelines by Monday, November 9th.
Students will be required to wear masks at school in the classroom and at recess time. We will, however, have socially distanced spaces available in classrooms for mask breaks. Students will also be able to have mask breaks at recess in a socially distanced appropriate place. Please remember that students will not be punished but be encouraged to follow the rule with reminders and positive reinforcement.
Our weekly schedule will also change. Students in Kindergarten and 1st grade will be attending school on Monday- Thursday with half days on Fridays. PK schedule will not change. This schedule change will ensure that all of our students PK-6th grade will be able to access their education either as distance learners or in person. Lincoln is working hard with CVE, the district office, transportation, and food service to determine firm schedules.
We want to thank you for all your support and flexibility in this unusual school year. Remember we are here to help and answer your questions. You can check the school district website for updates and if you have any questions, please contact the Lincoln School office at 396-2811.
Thanks again, Amy Flora

Be sure to view this year’s Supply List. All students need to have a change of clothes and shoes in their classroom at all times.
