Traditionally, one of the rituals families participate in as they prepare for the new school year is to purchase school supplies. In accordance with the Nebraska Constitution and state and federal law, Lincoln Public Schools provides a free, public education to all students. This generally means the district provides the supplies needed for instruction at no cost to students. This includes textbooks, pencils, erasers, crayons, glue, scissors, paper, notebooks, tissues, etc. For this reason, please do not send school supplies for your child’s individual use at school.
You are NOT required to purchase any of these items, but you may wish to purchase and donate some items to your child’s classroom. All items purchased will be graciously accepted as a donation to the school and will be shared by all students within the classroom.
