Early Childhood: Important information about Remote Learning

LPS Early Childhood Families:

Just a reminder Lincoln Public Schools will continue with Remote Learning for the remainder of the school year. While classes and activities are canceled, we will continue to provide early childhood services remotely.  Below is important information for you as we move into Phase Two of our Remote Learning Plan.

Helpful information for all early childhood families can be found by using a web browser to access lps.org/remote.

Student Parent Program

For parents who receive services in the Student Child Learning Centers or through ongoing home visits from the Student Parent Advocates, your provider will begin planning for weekly services with you and your child during the LPS closure.

Early Intervention Services

For children and families who receive early intervention services, your Services Coordinator will continue to support the needs of your family.  Your child’s primary service provider is contacting you to create a plan for providing the early intervention services in your child’s IFSP.

Home/Community Based Early Childhood Special Education Services

For families whose children attend a community or in-home childcare and receive early childhood special education services, your child’s primary service provider is contacting you to create a plan to provide the early childhood special education services in your child’s IEP.

Preschool and Early Childhood Special Education Services

For families whose children attend LPS preschool, preschool lessons will be broadcast Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on LNKTV Education Channel (Allo: Channel 23, Charter Spectrum: Channel 1303, Windstream: Kinetic Streaming TV Channel 31 and Kinetic IPTV Channel 1080).  You can access the schedule here: LNKTV Education Channel Schedule. These lessons are also available on the LPS Remote Learning at lps.org/remote and have been developed by members of the Early Childhood Department.

Your child’s classroom teacher will be contacting you to discuss a schedule for weekly remote learning visits. The purpose of these visits is to discuss the daily lessons and to support you in the implementation of your family goals.

For families of children in preschool who receive early childhood special education services, your child’s IEP case manager will discuss a plan for weekly early childhood special education services to support your child’s progress on IFSP outcomes or IEP goals.  All other special education providers on your child’s IFSP or IEP will work with you to develop a schedule for these services.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
