Wellness Update 2020-2021
Fall 2020 - Distance Learning
The Lincoln Wellness Team misses you! We miss having you drop in to say hi, checking in at the pit stop while you hydrate with some tea and grab a snack, and seeing you shine in the classroom.
We are experiencing a global pandemic that has changed all of our worlds dramatically and caused tremendous loss and stress in our communities. People and communities are rising up and using their voices to bring to light the injustices that the Black community, Indigenous communities, and other communities of color have been experiencing for generations.
You may be feeling overwhelmed and hurt, or maybe motivated and hungry for change. Whatever you are experiencing, we are here to empower and support you in caring for yourself, finding and using your voice, and feeling safe to grow both as individuals and community members in our changing world.

Students need to be healthy in body, mind, and spirit in order to learn successfully. Just a reminder The Wellness Center is all about support for students to help them make the most of their education. The Wellness Program provides care that includes health, mental health, and substance abuse counseling; parent support and linkages; student success team support; and community referrals.

- water bottles
- nuts (all kinds),
- granola bars/ breakfast bars
