  • Land Acknowledgement

    It is important to acknowledge the ancestors of this place and recognize that we are here because of the sacrifices forced upon them. In remembering these communities, we honor their legacy, their lives, and their descendents -- past, present, and future.

    Where Portland stands today are the historic homelands of several bands of Chinook-speaking people (including many Multnomah, Clackamas, and Watlata/Cascade villages). There were also Kalapuya (Tualatin villages) nearby and the Molalla people in the Willamette Valley. Today, their descendants are primarily members of the Grand Ronde and Siletz Confederated Tribes, with Chinook and other tribal relations at Warm Springs, Yakama, and the Chinook Nation. 

    In the reconstruction of this institution, let us acknowledge that it was founded upon exclusion and erasures of many indigenous peoples, including those on whose land we are standing upon today. This acknowledgement demonstrates a commitment from Lincoln High School to work to dismantle the ongoing legacies and ideologies of settler colonialism.

  • School Photos are In

    School Photos: If you ordered photos from Lifetouch, they are in and can be picked up in room 104. Students who did not get photos taken on our retake days or need a retake will have a final opportunity to have photos taken on October 19th. Lifetouch will be set up in the cafeteria between 11-3pm that day.

  • Back to School Night

    Thursday, September 23, Lincoln will host its second Virtual Back to School Night. 

    Last year we successfully developed a system in which each family received a personalized email with all of their students’ classes, along with the virtual login information for each of those classes. We will continue that practice this year. On Tuesday, Freshman and Sophomore families will receive personalized emails to the first two email addresses we have on file. On Wednesday, those same emails will be sent to Junior and Senior families. We have to separate the days simply because Gmail prevents us from mass-mailing more than 1500 emails in a day. All emails will come from Rachel McCormick ( On that email, you will find a number of things:

    1. Links to optional sessions from 5:30-6:00pm, including sessions from counselors for senior parents, a session for junior parents with College Coordinator Aliera Morasch, a session with Career Coordinator Shannan Fasold about the resources offered in the Career Center and more!
    2. Link to optional Livestream with admin team from 6:00-6:30pm. This is what would usually happen in the gymnasium before Back to School Night, but will happen virtually in the comfort of your home. We are currently working on a way to have a space for questions to be submitted virtually. 
    3. Links connected to your students’ schedule from 6:40-8:35pm, meaning you will see all eight of the classes your student has, the times you should join that meet, and the link to that meet.

    During Back to School Night, teachers will present for 10 minutes on their class, grading practices, the learning experience for students and other pertinent information. The entire event will use Google Meet with full permissions, meaning you’ll just have to click on each of the links as you navigate through the night. In the case your child has an academic center, peer mentor, or other non-academic course, you will not receive a link for that class. Instead, you could choose to join the admin team for open office hours if you have questions, or can take a screen break for those ten minutes.

    Each class will run for about 10 minutes and you will follow your students’ schedule exactly (going to first period first, second period next, etc.). 

  • LHS Digital Citizenship Guidelines

    To ensure a safe and appropriate learning environment, we expect all students to abide by behavioral expectations that we would likewise expect if students were attending class in person. Additionally, we expect appropriate online conduct at all times for school-related meetings and work, including adherence to the following expectations:

    ·       Do not share the Google Hangout/Meet or any videoconferencing URL that is created by a teacher or the school.

    ·       Do not attend any school-related Google Hangout/Meet or any videoconferencing to which you have not been invited.

    ·       Use academically-appropriate language during all school activities and communications.

    ·       Behave appropriately and respectfully while participating in synchronous and asynchronous remote learning activities.

    ·       Be aware of the environment from which you are participating during video conferencing (e.g., do not display inappropriate items/images in the foreground or background).

    ·       Dress appropriately for online video conferences.

    Students who violate appropriate technology use expectations during this period of distance learning, as they would in the traditional school setting, will receive disciplinary consequences. Student safety remains our top priority. Bullying or hate speech including racist, sexist, classist, homophobic, or xenophobic attacks will not be tolerated. For more information please refer to the PPS Students Rights and Responsibilities handbook.

  • Accessing Student Email Accounts

    All students at Portland Public High Schools have PPS student email. Students usernames are first initial, last name, last four digits of their student ID.
    Use PPS email to contact teachers and classmates, logging in with your account at

    Your student email address is the same as your school account login and is also how you access Canvas through the student portal.

    Dear Current and Prospective Lincoln Families,

    Welcome to Lincoln High School! We’re proud to be one of the top college prep International Baccalaureate (IB) high schools in the United States with thriving, Fine and Performing Arts, STEM, Spanish Immersion, and CTE programs in Media & Communications, Coding & Computer Science, Business, Culinary Arts, and Product Design. In addition to Spanish, Mandarin, French, and German, Lincoln is excited to be one of a handful of schools in the nation to offer Arabic to high school students.

    Our students are actively involved inquirers who think critically about the world in which they live. Students facilitate over 60 student-led clubs including MUN, Robotics, Speech and Debate, GSA, BSU, MEChA, Asian, Arab, Jewish, and Native American student unions. In addition, Lincoln students regularly participate in highly competitive 6A athletics, a host of club sports from Water Polo to Sailing and Lacrosse, and are involved in a variety of engaging and meaningful extra-curricular activities and community service projects here and abroad. Our community is one in which “parents and neighbors are welcome partners”. Parent volunteerism at Lincoln is unparalleled and appreciated.

    Above all else, at Lincoln it is “cool to be involved and follow your passions.” We are fortunate to be able to offer an engaging, diverse and rigorous core academic program and our expectation is that students are supported to explore, play, grow and practice the skills they need to gain confidence and feel success. The Lincoln community then works collaboratively to provide opportunities to connect student interests and skills to the world around them to create purpose and meaning. Lincoln values the whole child, providing academic advising and college counseling as well as evidenced based social-emotional, special education, ELL, and mental health supports as needed.

    Finally, Lincoln consistently earns top ratings for academic achievement, attendance, and its 94% 4 year graduation rate. Lincoln students regularly meet and exceed international benchmarks on IB exams as well as state tests. Students care deeply about issue relevant to their lives and are empowered to speak as youth advocates. Lincoln is proud to support and produce amazing graduates who go on to pursue a wide variety of exciting opportunities. As Principal I am honored to serve the Lincoln community. Please contact me at if I can be of any assistance to you or your family. We encourage you and your student to join our inclusive community.


    With Warm Regards,
