Teacher Assignments & School Supplies
Classroom teacher assignments will be emailed to families on the afternoon of August 4th. First day of school is August 16th.
School Supplies – Families Provide
Lincoln Public Schools provides all necessary supplies for students throughout the school year. Families are only asked to provide a backpack and tennis shoes. The backpack should be large enough for students to take a large Tyvek/mailer Wednesday Folder as well as papers to and from school. Tennis shoes will be worn when your student attends PE class. This does not need to be a separate pair of shoes. Also, if your child wishes to bring a cold lunch, you will need to provide a lunchbox for your child.
If you would like to donate school supplies, classroom teachers and specialists always welcome donations of items/supplies, which may be dropped off in the office throughout the school year (please label with teacher name, if desired).
School Supplies – Suggested Donations
- Hand sanitizer
- Unscented dry erase markers

- Pencils (#2)
- Glue sticks
Note from Lincoln Public Schools
Traditionally, one of the rituals families participate in as they prepare for the new school year is to purchase school supplies. In accordance with the Nebraska Constitution and state and federal law, Lincoln Public Schools provides a free, public education to all students. This generally means the district provides the supplies needed for instruction at no cost to students. This includes text books, pencils, erasers, crayons, glue, scissors, paper, notebooks, tissues, etc. For this reason, please do not send school supplies for your child’s individual use at school.
You are NOT required to purchase any of these items, but you may wish to purchase and donate some items to your child’s classroom. We ask that you do not put your child’s name on any items. All items purchased will be graciously accepted as a donation to the school and will be shared by all students within the classroom.
