ParentLink Message 2.14.22

Good evening, Lincoln families. Happy Valentines Day! This is Mrs. Parham with an update on behalf of our Lincoln team.

This message contains 3 pieces of information.

First, a reminder that tomorrow is Tuesday which means we have covid testing at Lincoln. At this time, we have registered and are testing almost 100% of our Lincoln students. In fact, we only have 14 students in our entire school who still need to register for covid testing. We are working on supporting those families to do so. With your help, we are able to test as many students and staff as possible every single Tuesday, which helps us keep our community safe. Thank you for helping us reach our goal of 100% registered!

Second, next week, there will be NO SCHOOL for the Presidents' Week holiday. So, we have school this week Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and then one week off. After the week off, we will return on Monday, February 28th.

Lastly, please note that due to the district's new Group Tracing policy, the 3 additional covid testing sites that the district had set up at the district office, Ohlone Elementary and Alvarado School are no longer open. The Presidents’ week holiday is February 21 - February 25 and the District will host seven testing centers on Saturday, February 26 and Sunday, February 27 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m for all students and staff to get tested before the return to school on Monday, February 28th.

The testing sites are:

Alvarado School 5625 Sutter St. Richmond, 94804
District Office 1108 Bissell Ave. Richmond, 94801
El Cerrito High School 540 Ashbury Ave. El Cerrito, 94530

The sites are open to WCCUSD staff, students, parents, siblings, staff spouses and children ages 2 and older. If you have not registered, click here to register and schedule an antigen test. Everyone who tests must be registered in the LSA system.

That's all I have for now. Please have a happy valentines day and take care.
