Using the Absent Line (Save-a-Child)
Lincoln School has always promoted the use of the Save-a-Child absent phone line. We have promoted the use of calling the phone number directly. However, some recent changes with our phone systems prevents people from calling the phone number directly.
To report a student’s absence from school, please call the school’s main number (781) 979-2250. You will be greeted by a general message that provides you with several options. Please listen to the options to connect to the Save-a-Child line. When leaving a message, be sure to include your child’s name, grade, teacher, and date of absence.
If your child is absent from school, and we did not receive a message on the absence line, you will receive a pre-recorded phone message in the morning, asking you to contact the school to confirm that your child is absent.
Principal’s Email Updates
We will be using the Connect-Ed system to send out email updates. Please make sure that we have your updated emails .
Please register your email address with Lincoln School website. You will receive weekly notifications when the website is updated.
Chain of Communication
Communication is key to your child’s success as they move through the Melrose Public School System. It is our goal to make the process of communication as simple and effective as possible. The following link is to a document outlining the chain of communication you should follow for best results in each grade and regarding many topics you might face during your child’s tenure in Melrose.
We encourage you to take a moment to review this list and follow the recommend chain of communication for the best results.
