Good morning Lincoln High, Welcome to LinksLive! The Lincoln High Morning News Show.

I’m Jacob Vanderford, and I’m Tyler Schumacher. 

It’s the last regular day of the semester, and this will be the last episode of LinksLive! until we return from Winter Break. We won’t be having the morning broadcast during finals, but we will put information and announcements on the Daily News tab of the Advocate Online. From all of us here at LinksLive!, good luck with finals this week, and have a great break!

Speaking of finals, the Final Exam schedule is on the LHS Home page at and it’s listed below in today’s transcript. Exams are TOMORROW through Friday. Wednesday’s exams begin are for periods 5, 6, and 7. Thursday’s exams are periods zero, 3 and 4. And Friday’s exams are periods 1 and 2. Good luck!

During our Finals schedule, we will have one lunch period each day from 12pm-12:45pm. Teachers will be available to work with students each day this week until 3:15pm.

“There are no after school groups today due to finals this week, but you CAN join us in the Media Center for STUDY TIME after school until 7pm.

During Final Exams the Media Center will be open Wednesday and Thursday from 7 am to 7 pm for studying. On Friday, the media center will open at 7 am but closes early at 12:45 pm. Also, tutoring will not be offered after school Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Here’s an update about the STEM club fundraiser that was scheduled for tonight. That event has been CANCELED. Again, The Arby’s night fundraiser has been canceled for tonight.

HOWEVER, Lincoln High School theatre IS having their annual blackshirt fundraiser TONIGHT from 5-8pm at the downtown Raising Cane’s!
