LHS Members—and their dogs—are expected to lead by example and follow some simple guidelines in order to ensure continued access to the community field.
Community Field Hours
School Days - Before 6:30am / After 5:30pm
Weekends & Holidays - Open except for Off Limits Days
As you may have noticed, Lincoln HS Athletics programs have resumed practices and competitions on campus, with some sports running concurrently. Many sports such as football, softball, and track & field have activities directly adjacent to the community field, which poses a safety risk because gates are regularly left open and unattended.
As we continue to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, regular school activities will resume, and there will be many more staff, students, and parents on campus. Please respect the time limits above.
Off Limits Days and School Events
The campus is OFF LIMITS to pets on days when the Lincoln football OR track & field teams are hosting events on the adjacent field. Visitors should also be aware and respectful of upcoming school events as more staff, students, and parents will be on campus.
Here's a calendar of upcoming 2023 Off Limit Days and School Events (updated 8/21/2023):
You can find updated sports schedule information on the Lincoln High School website.
NO alcohol, smoking, vaping, drug use, skateboards, scooters, or other wheeled items are allowed on any school field at any time.
Please contact us to report violations of these guidelines.
