Community News

Community News is a monthly publication of Lincoln Public Schools during the school year (9 months).

Community News is open to advertising from nonprofit organizations and government entities (colleges, departments, programs, etc.) promoting student- and family-friendly events and services. Each issue is sent home with elementary students and mailed to secondary families who do not have an elementary student. Total print production is about 24,900 copies.

What is in each issue?

Each issue has stories of teaching and learning in Lincoln Public Schools, promotions of upcoming events, and tips and strategies for families, as well as games and activities.

When is CN delivered?

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