Community News is a monthly publication of Lincoln Public Schools during the school year (9 months) in an effort to help share family-friendly community events and activities from non-profit organizations.

Any non-profit organization and government entity (colleges, departments, programs, etc.) promoting student- and family-friendly events and services can purchase advertising in Community News. Each issue is sent home with elementary students through school take home-folders and a digital copy is emailed to every LPS family, including high school and middle school families. Total print production is roughly 15,000 copies and the digital version is emailed to roughly 25,000 families.

When is Community News Delievered?

Our goal is to have Community News distributed to all students the first week of the month. The exact dates can not be guaranteed, so it is best to not solely rely on Community News for promoting events in the first week of a month.
