Lincoln news for Jan. 21
LINCOLN — At a special school board meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 13, the Mount Abraham Unified School District board voted to postpone a decision regarding the superintendent’s proposal to repurpose the Lincoln Community School and send Lincoln elementary students to either Bristol or Monkton. The board will continue to hold its regularly scheduled meetings to discuss the proposal and the timeline for making a decision.
Although the decision is postponed at this time, our community is still gathering information and researching alternatives to the proposal. If you’d like to learn more about these efforts or would like to get involved, please visit protecttownschools.info.
The Vermont Everyone Eats program has received additional funding and will continue to provide nutritious meals to Vermonters in need of food assistance during this pandemic. The meals are prepared by the Vergennes restaurant Bar Antidote and will be delivered to the Lincoln Library Monday through Friday for pickup between 3 and 8 p.m. Each person will receive one free meal on each of those days.
