Lincoln Academy ninth graders spent their first day on campus on Monday, August 31. During their Freshman Orientation, the new Class of 2024 toured the campus, met their advisors, discussed health and safety, and learned how to log in to the technology tools they will need for in-person and virtual learning during the 2020-21 academic year. They also tested out the schools new reusable lunch tiffins.

Once the regular academic year begins on September 14 (after two weeks of orientation) LA students will attend school in a 50/50 schedule, with half the students on campus on Mondays and Thursdays, and the other half on Tuesdays and Fridays. On their non-campus days students will participate in virtual learning, and Wednesday is a virtual day for everyone. All students have the option to study entirely virtually, and several dozen have chosen to do so.

All students and staff fill out a daily health check and wear masks in all LA buildings. Orientation for all classes will continue through the week of September 7. Regular classes will begin on September 14.
