Message from Our Principal

Dear Abraham Lincoln High School Parents and Guardians:

 

I want to welcome you back for a new school year!  I hope that you and your children had a relaxing summer and are ready to begin a new year of growth and learning.  

 

This year we begin school on September 7, 2016.  On the first day of school, your child should be ready for school in their uniform (Black or Yellow collar school shirts, black pants and shoes, sneakers, boots, but no open toe sandals or flip-flops).

 

Your child should be ready with their school supplies and on time for 180 days of school.  Bi-monthly, there will be a newsletter that will come home with your child. Each month the school calendar will be updated with important dates.  

 

Again this year, you will receive automated messages from School Messenger. Do not hang up on these messages for they contain information that may involve a last minute schedule change, an emergency closing or a reminder of upcoming events.

 

On a weekly basis, you should check your child’s grades and assignments on SchoolNet/GradeBook. You can also sign up as a parent on the School District of Philadelphia website under ParentLink

 

The school day begins promptly at 7:51 a.m. and ends at 2:55 p.m.  On early dismissal days, the school day ends at 11:55 a.m. Make sure your child(ren) are here on time. The doors will open at 7:30 a.m. Lateness is not tolerated by Abraham Lincoln High School, and as per the School Code of Conduct, your child could be made to serve detentions and/or miss out on school activities and also may be prohibited them for matriculating to a Career & Technical Education program of their choice.

 

Visitors must sign in at the Parent Assistance Desk (PAD), receive a visitor’s badge and proceed to the office.  For everyone’s safety, parents are not allowed to escort his or her child to their classroom or walk to any teacher’s classroom, to discuss any matter. Parents will have to schedule an appointment.

 

Abraham Lincoln is a BULLY FREE ZONE. We are working hard to keep the school safe for all of our students.  An event will be scheduled in October to kick off our no bully policy.  Watch for the date on your school calendar.

 

Back to School Night is September 29th, 2016 from 5:00 pm to & 7:00 PM. Student Code of Conduct Manuals along with the Parent Handbooks will be distributed that evening in your child’s classroom.

 

As always, I look forward to a great year for all of my Abraham Lincoln High School students.

 Sincerely,

Jack Nelson,

Principal
