New Devices NOT Required

Just to clear up any any misconceptions that may exist...

Lincoln Lutheran will put out new device requirements each year as we evaluate what is working well and what isn't working well for students. This does not mean that you have to buy a new device every year. Even if the device your child has is one that we no longer recommend, or one that doesn't meet the new requirements, they can still use that device.
