     Inside This Issue                                   Dear Parents,

                                                         I am so proud of the Lincoln community for the Trojan Spirit and good sportsmanship that was exempli-

                                                         The atmosphere of that game was exciting. Our newly named student rooting section, Lincoln’s Lunatics

primarily through direct contact or contact with contaminated objects (such as
scabies, lice and staph). The media has recently focused on the spread of skin
infections caused by methicillin –resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA).
Most skin infections, regardless of cause, can be easily treated if identified in
a timely manner.
Because of the real potential for an outbreak in schools, we must work doubly
hard to ensure our students stay healthy. The best way to keep the bacteria from               June 4, 2009
