Invitation to name new LPS support facility

Lincoln Public Schools is asking for suggestions from our community to name a new school facility that supports both the LPS Nutrition Service Program and school district Professional Learning.

Please submit ideas before Oct. 26, by going to:  http://lps.org/nameit/2016-10/

The facility will have two major uses:

  • For Nutrition Services:  The facility will house the freezer, cooler, dry storage and support offices that facilitate distribution of food to school sites district-wide.  On any given day, the LPS Nutrition Services program serves 7,200 breakfasts, 26,400 lunches, 3,200 snacks and 150 dinners. In total over seven million dollars of food will be distributed through this facility each year.
  • For Professional Learning: LPS is committed to high-quality professional learning opportunities for all staff.  The facility will house a large professional learning space, smaller classrooms and conference room settings to meet the various needs of staff.

All suggested names will be forwarded to a special committee made up of Lincoln Board of Education and community members who will give their recommendation to the Board of Education. The Board of Education will make the final decision.
