The Food Service Department uses an automated Point-of-Sale system. Each student has a meal account, which is used when making purchases. Payments are made in advance. The district issues your student’s ID number. Parents are strongly advised to make payments in advance. Parents are asked to send money, by check if possible, made out to Exeter School Meals, in a sealed envelope with student’s name, teacher’s name, and amount of money written on it. It is recommended that payments be made prior to students purchasing items from the meal program. It is preferred payments are made on the fist day of the school week for ease in the classroom. Payments are accepted at any time. Meal money is collected in the first day of each school week early in the morning. If necessary, meals can be paid for daily in the cafeteria. You may also pay by credit card by creating an account for your student at myschoolbucks.com, there is a small fee charged by the company for this service. You can also view account activity at this site at no charge. Any money left on your child’s meal account at the end of the school year moves forward with them.
Students who received free or reduced price meals last year are eligible to receive free or reduced meals for the for the first 30 operating days of school or until a determination (free, reduced, or denied) has been made on the student’s new application. All students will be given new forms during the first week of school; they should be completed and returned to school as quickly as possible. A NEW APPLICATION IS REQUIRED EACH YEAR.
The School Meal Program strongly recommends that if you are new to the school district you submit an application for the Free and Reduced Price Meal Program prior to the first day of school. If you feel you may qualify and did not receive this benefit during the 2016/2017school year, or if you have a new student being enrolled in in the district.
If you did receive free or reduced price meals during the 2016/2017 school year and have a new student enrolling in the district please contact the Food Service office to inform us of the name of the new student so we may add them to the program. You are still required to submit a new application each year. If a new application is not received and approved before October 11, 2017 your child’s meal status will return to paid.

Staff at SAU 16 have been working with the NH Department of Health and Human Services to control pertussis in the Exeter High School. Pertussis - also known as whooping cough - is a cough syndrome caused by infection by the bacteria Bordetella pertussis. Since the first patients were confirmed at our school in June 2018, it appears the number of new cases has decreased and is back to our community's baseline level. To protect yourself and prevent additional cases, please be sure that you and your family are up to date on your vaccinations and, if your child is exhibiting signs of pertussis, please keep your child home from school and school related events and seek medical care with your usual provider. Also, remember to practice good hand and respiratory hygiene. Thank you in advance for helping us to keep our community as healthy as possible.

LSS 2017 X-Country Schedule
Destination Imagination is a world-wide program which focuses on creativity and problem solving. Teams of 5-7 students work together to solve a challenge. There are five challenges provided by the program officials each year. After choosing one of the challenges the team meets weekly to find a solution to the challenge. They create a skit in which to share their solution. Teams take their solutions to a regional tournament. This is a competitive meet and teams are judged on how well they solve the challenge. The regional tournament is an excellent time to meet teams from other schools, to celebrate creativity, and to have fun. Registration forms for this program will be sent home in early September.

This program relies on parent volunteers to serve as team managers. It is often difficult to find parents who have 2-5 hours per week to give to this program. Training is provided by the NH Destination Imagination program on a Saturday in the fall. If you are interested in serving as a DI team manager, please contact Jan Smith at 775-8860.
Volunteers play a vital role in the Lincoln Street School community. We are fortunate to have parent volunteers, community members who come to help us, and volunteers from within the building - both staff members and students. We hope that this model of giving and sharing will make our students better citizens.
Lincoln Street School has a very active Volunteer Program. Lots of our parents and other community members volunteer their time in schools in a variety of roles; reading to classes, assisting with academics, helping in the cafeteria or library, teaching Math Problem Solvers, providing math fact practice, or volunteering in the Music Programs and Art Programs.
