Be the first to know! LHS Counseling department will send out important information, dates, scholarships etc...


More than 100 colleges visit Lincoln each year to meet prospective students.  Informational meetings are offered only during lunchtime and after school, but most college staff find these sessions to be well attended by interested students. Admissions counselors are invited to contact our Counseling Secretary Louisa Hunt to suggest dates and times (midday/lunch or 3:20 PM) for their visit. 



  • Freshman need to pick up a FLEX form from their English teacher or study hall.
  • Form must be signed by a teacher and turned in (classroom door has a slot for the form).
  • Freshman are required to attend FLEX sessions each week. There will be disciplinary action for those students who do not comply (detention, unable to attend school dance and/or participate in extra-curricular activities).
  • Students are NOT allowed to leave campus during FLEX.
  • Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors are to attend FLEX.


 This presentation was created for our incoming freshman and is full of helpful forecasting information. Feel free to contact your LHS Counselor for any questions you may have.  Your counselor can be found on the staff page. Counselors are assigned by last name.  For enrollment information, you may contact our registrar at 503-916-5200 option 2.
