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 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 16,000 copies and the digital version is emailed to roughly 25,000 families.

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 Community News Delievered?

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 Community News for promoting events in the first week of a month.
