Information for LA Families

Calendar of Important Dates

  • This includes orientation, vacations, and holidays for the 2021-22 school year.

New schedule:

  • As of September, LA will use a new academic schedule.
  • Students will have eight possible class slots, up from seven in our old schedule, and both lunch and clubs will look quite different.
  • You can see more information here.

Athletics:

  • Practice schedules can be found on the LA Athletics page of the LA website.
  • The Athletics Calendar can be found at this link.
  • All students will need to have a sports physical within 2 years of the beginning of the season. Please have your doctor fill out the sports physical form, which can be printed and downloaded at this link.
  • Families will also have to complete the Sports Participation form as part of the PowerSchool registration process.

Technology:

  • All students at Lincoln Academy are required to bring their own device to school.
  • The school recommends Chromebooks for most students’ technology needs, because of the relatively high value of function and portability to price point. Most academic work at LA is done via online platforms like Google Drive and Canvas, and Chromebooks have all the necessary functionality to work with these platforms without the added expense, weight, and risk of loss of a large hard drive. There are several options for purchasing Chromebooks, which you can explore on this Chromebook Comparison Chart
  • Other acceptable devices for Lincoln Academy academic work are:
    • PC laptops with at least Windows 10 and current wireless cards
    • Mac OS laptops with at least OS X and current wireless hardware
  • Please note that tablets are no longer recommended as school devices. We have found that tablets lack the functionality needed for some academic platforms at LA.
  • Students have access to computers in the library, and there are Chromebooks available to borrow through the library. These are meant to be a backup in case of unforeseen events, and not replace students’ own devices. If you have questions or concerns, or if providing a device is a significant hardship for your family, please contact the Main Office (207-563-3596 ext 102) over the summer. We will make every effort to support families’ purchase of student Chromebooks.
