The folks at Sangha have just launched a new Parents Self Serve Signup.
Just click on this Signup link and enter our School Code: RR4CTF
How it works
Once you sign up on the self serve page, you will receive an email invitation from Sangha with easy instructions.
If you don't see the email invite, check other places it might be in your Junk, Spam, Social, Promotions, or other email Folders.
All visitors to the Lincoln must stop by the office and sign in during the school day. This is for your child's safety and yours. In case of an emergency all need to be accounted for. The sign-in binder is in the office. Please make sure you take a " visitor or volunteer" sticker. If you need to get something to your child, please let the office staff help you. We will contact your child's teacher to get the item to them. Please do no disturb the classroom while they are in session.
In the interest of not interrupting instructional time, we do not interrupt classes for deliveries or messages during class. We do realize that there are times that parents need to get a missing class assignment or lunch to their children.
If your student forgot their lunch, please have all lunches to the office before 11:20am. Our campus monitors take the lunch to the cafeteria and the students will have the lunch waiting for them at their lunch table.
For other items ( homework, backpack, etc.) that you would like to have delivered to your child, we will place the item in your child's teacher's mailbox for them to pick up at recess or lunch.
Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
Looking for a part time job? NUSD is looking for campus monitors to work 1.5 hours per day at elementary school sites. If you are interested , please contact the District Office at 510-818-4103.
In the quest for excellence, we promote the love of learning, to create a caring, nurturing environment where everyone is empowered to develop intellectually, physically, aesthetically, and emotionally in a challenging, child centered environment.

Lincoln an Honor Roll School two consecutive years in a row
Congratulations to Lincoln Elementary for being recognized as 2015 California Honor Roll School.
“We are so proud to be recognized by leaders in the California business community as an Honor Roll school,” said Mrs. Angela Ehrlich, Principal, Lincoln Elementary School. “Our teachers and administrators work tirelessly to keep the focus on high expectations and student academic achievement and to continuously improve our practices. This hard work and dedication is paying off for all of our students, no matter their background.”
Here is an excerpt from the letter sent to the school.
"On behalf of Educational Results Partnership (ERP) and the Campaign for Business and Education Excellence (CBEE), I am writing to congratulate you. Lincoln Elementary has been named an Honor Roll school for the 2015 California Honor Roll. Your school will receive recognition in the press as a leader in student achievement, will be provided with a free banner to display on campus, and will be featured on our website where educators and policy makers seek out high performing schools so that they can replicate success.
The 2015 Honor Roll recognizes public elementary, middle, and high schools that demonstrate consistently high levels of student academic achievement, improvement in achievement over time, and reduction in achievement gaps. For high schools, Honor Roll recognition includes measures of college readiness in students. This year, the California Honor Roll recognized 1,714 higher performing, higher poverty schools that are distinguished for their academic achievement and closing achievement gaps."

Traffic Safety - seguridad vial
As we begin the school year, Newark Police Department will begin citing drivers whenever necessary to encourage compliance of traffic laws and to reinforce that safety of our children is a priority.
There have been multiple incidents endangering children even a child being struck and several near misses. Please remember that children’s cognitive abilities are still developing and they lack training and experience in traffic safety.
Keys to avoid receiving a citation:
- Drive Slow
- Do not make illegal U-turns
- Have car seats for children
- Have seat belts on all passengers
- Make a “full-stop” at stop signs
Putting our children at risk is not worth the few minutes you may save by rushing and breaking these suggestions. Newark Unified School District and the Newark Police Department want to keep everyone safe.
Safety reminders for children walking to school:
- Walk, don’t run across the street
- Look left, look right and left again
- Obey Walk/Wait signals
- Do not cross at mid-block locations
- Use crosswalks
Safety reminders for children biking to school:
- Always wear a properly fastened and fitted helmet
- Obey all traffic laws
- Ride in the same direction as motor vehicles
- Check traffic when changing lanes, crossing streets or turning
- Use hand signals

Child Nutrition Services
Please remember two things:
1. Please make prior arrangements with your child’s teacher before bringing in birthday treats for your child to share with his/her class. Also, we ask that balloons, flowers and other large displays be given to the child at home because they are very distracting in the classroom.
2. Please bring the healthiest treats possible. We know the tradition is sugary cupcakes and such, but we are trying to teach our children healthier ways of eating.
- Homework Requests ~ Homework will be available upon request. Please call or email your child’s teacher before 10:00am to request their homework. Homework may be available after school pending teacher’s availability.
- Parents, please listen to your messages before calling the school back. There are often times where the teachers call from the classroom and the office is unaware why they called.
- Student’s needing to be picked up early from school ~ The person picking up your child/children from school before the end of the day at 2:32 pm Monday – Thursday and 1:05 pm on Fridays MUST be on the emergency card and must be over 18. They will be asked to show photo ID. If they aren’t on the emergency card, we can’t release the student/students to them.
