School begins Monday (Aug. 23rd) in Lincoln, Catawba, Gaston and Cleveland counties.  The watchwords for the day are CAUTION and PATIENCE.  

Kids waiting for their bus to arrive pre-dawn may not be readily visible.  Watch for them and slow down so you can stop if needed.  Allow extra time for your morning commute because you'll likely need to stop for school buses.  

If you are driving your kids to school, be patient.  You'll get over any inconvenience--but a child struck by a car may not fare as well.  Nobody wants to start the school year off with an accident--even a fender-bender because someone was impatient.  

Federal edicts require that those riding buses wear masks...and Lincoln, Gaston and Cleveland County Schools have adopted a 'masks mandatory for everyone' policy to start the year.  Masks (except on buses, where they are required) are still optional this Monday in Catawba County Schools.  The Catawba County School Board meets Monday evening and will discuss whether or not to change that policy.

Lincoln Charter School has been having classes since Aug. 11th.  Because of multip cases of COVID-19, they're now requiring masks for teachers and other staff, but so far they're still optional for students.  The LCS school board meets Monday evening and will likely discuss masks again.
