The Lincoln Community Learning Centers value the importance of engaging our youth in fun and enriching “afterschool” opportunities. We recognize that these are very unusual times, and we believe that we can best serve our youth and families by providing online resources and ideas for activities that can be done at home. We will continue to add to this list of opportunities on the LPS website, so check back frequently!
