Letter to Lincoln Families

May 4, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Working in partnership with parents to provide open communication and ensure the safety of all students, I wanted to inform you of an event that occurred this afternoon after dismissal. As a precaution, Lincoln School was placed on a soft lockdown due to nearby police activity on Chicago and 8th Avenue. In a soft lockdown, students are kept in their classrooms/activity areas and no one is allowed to enter or leave the building. The police activity is not student related, nor were any students in any danger. Again, this occurred well after student dismissal at approximately 2:35pm. We awaited guidance from the Maywood Police Department to release the soft lockdown.

As always, I welcome your comments and questions. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you should have any concerns.


Mrs. Yadira Gomez-Munoz
