I would like to welcome you to our website. The West Lincoln Staff is very dedicated to serving all of our students and we have created a great learning environment for our students. If you do not find the information you need, please do not hesitate to call our school office, 402-436-1168. Our office hours are 7:30-4:30, Monday-Friday.

If you are new to our neighborhood or new to our school, you may register for school by going to the Lincoln Public Schools website, lps.org, and click on the enroll button. If you do not have access to a computer, we welcome you to come in our office to complete the registration process.

You will be receiving many emails from the District and from West Lincoln School. Please read these, as they will contain important information for your family. One of the emails will contain videos produced by our teachers welcoming you to the school year and sharing important information about the classroom expectations.

It is our goal to create a great learning atmosphere for your child, while creating the safest environment possible for the entire West Lincoln Community. Below are a few changes that I wanted to make you aware of for the beginning of the school year.
