NEW Opening Date for Lincoln Meadows
LM - For Lincoln Meadows campus ONLY. Due to a last-minute change made by the state, we will be moving the first day of school for the Lincoln Meadows campus to September 5. Changes like this aren't all that unusual for big construction projects, though good contractors like ours (Haselden Construction) do everything possible to anticipate and avoid such possibilities. Unfortunately, small changes can have a domino effect in construction, and in our case, the required changes will push us unavoidably outside our original estimated date of completion.

The good news is that, other than the new opening date, the Lincoln Meadows school year will not be dramatically affected (download the NEW Lincoln Meadows 2017-2018 school year calendar). We are waiting for final DCSD approval of our bell schedule later this week, but don't anticipate any major changes there. The only other date change to note is that the first NO SCHOOL for K-1 ONLY for testing day has been moved to September 12. Otherwise, Lincoln Meadows will share the same school year calendar with the other two campuses, including the same Fall Break, Winter Break and Spring Break dates.

We know this change may represent an inconvenience for some of our new American Academy - Lincoln Meadows parents, and we sincerely apologize. But we have every confidence in our amazing construction crew. They are still making unbelievable progress every day and we promise to keep you updated as we get closer to our new open date on September 5!
