Lincoln Public Schools families,

Here is your monthly update with important information and reminders from Lincoln Public Schools. Here is an index to help you navigate this month’s update:

It’s time to register your kindergarten student for 2024-25

Do you have a child – or do you know of a child – that will start kindergarten next year? Lincoln Public Schools is now accepting kindergarten registrations for the 2024-2025 school year. 

Parents of children turning five years of age on or before July 31, 2024 can go to and click on the red “Enroll Your Student” button. Here you will also find all the information necessary for registering, the required documents needed and answers to frequently asked questions.

For children who turn five between August 1 and October 15, parents may request an assessment for their child to receive a waiver to attend school early. That information is also located on the kindergarten registration page. 

Parents who do not have access to the online registration, or wish to register their child in person, should contact their attendance area elementary school as soon as possible. Questions about kindergarten registration should also be directed to the child’s attendance area school. 

For more information about kindergarten registration and assessment testing for incoming students, please go to:

Community Awareness Event: Keeping Current – Youth Vaping and Mental Health

Schools, parents, caregivers and communities all play a role in providing supportive pathways for our youth as they navigate childhood and adolescence. Lincoln Public Schools is partnering with School Community Intervention and Prevention (SCIP) and Region V Systems to put on valuable community presentations about how to support the health and well-being of our community’s youth.

Please join us for this upcoming event:
Keeping Current: Youth Vaping and Mental Health 
Thursday, Feb. 29, 2024, 6:30 – 8 p.m. 
Lincoln Medical Education Partnership Vrbka Classrooms – 4600 Valley Road (Entrance 1, first floor)

Vaping poses significant health risks to our youth. While youth may start vaping for a variety of reasons, a large number of young people vape nicotine or marijuana to lessen feelings of stress, anxiety or depression. 

When better coping skills are developed, there may be fewer temptations to try to manage mental health challenges through vaping, reducing the possibility of addiction and the risk of negative health outcomes. 

Lindsay Brundege, a therapist with Jenda Family Services, will discuss:

Community News – February edition

Each month LPS publishes Community News in an effort to help share family-friendly community events and activities from non-profit organizations. Check out the February edition preview of Community News online.

Jobs and Extended Learning Opportunities (JELO)

Is your child looking for a job or other extended learning opportunity? Students can use their Chromebook or LPS Student Portal account to check out our electronic bulletin board by going to and typing in the keyword “JELO”. (Students must be logged in to their LPS Student Portal to view the board.) 

Students in grades 6-12 will find information about a wide variety of opportunities available. This includes activities, camps, jobs and internships. We update the board every Wednesday afternoon.

Are you a business or organization wanting to share your opportunities with LPS students?

If so, please enter the information about your program/opportunity here:

Once you submit the information on the form, we will review it to ensure that it fits with our Board policies and regulations before we post it to the electronic bulletin board. Once an opportunity is posted, students in all middle and high schools are easily able to access the information. Please note: anyone outside of the LPS network or without LPS Portal access will not be able to access the eBulletin board.
