Lincoln County Schools closed Friday

Modified: Thursday, Dec 20th, 2012

On Dec. 20, Superintendent Tom Rinearson announced the cancellation of school on Dec. 21, citing a variety of factors, including heightened concern over school security and potentially dangerous driving conditions due to inclement weather. Another concern was the high number of student absences that are typical before a holiday or school break.

“The holidays are a high stress time anyway, and the last day of school is usually not a good quality learning day,” he said. “I ask for everyone’s understanding, and wish them a safe, happy holiday.”

School will return to session on Monday, Jan. 7, as originally scheduled.
