Bell Schedule Online

We have about six different schedules that we routinely use at Lincoln Lutheran, and each of those is slightly different for middle school and high school. That can sometimes make it hard to keep track of where your child is if you are making plans to to pick them up for an appointment or drop them off after one.

To make it a little easier to know what schedule we are on, we have a little web-app that keeps track of the schedule we are using each day. You can access that app at http://bells.lincolnlutheran.org. You can also access it under Academics on the school website.

Currently, the app knows which days are normally chapel day, non-chapel days and late-start days. it doesn't know when we are using an early out or assembly schedule automatically, but it does have those schedules, so you can select them as needed.

You can also set whether you want to automatically see the middle school schedules or the high school schedules. And you can always choose to view the other schedules no matter what you set as your default.

A New Website for the New School Year.

Welcome to the brand new Lincoln Lutheran school website. We talked to parents and students. We talked to faculty, our own and others. We researched current trends in school websites both secondary and post secondary. We listened to what you liked and disliked about the former site. You can see the results today.

Any website is about communication, and we wanted to be able to use our website to better communicate with everyone associated with the Lincoln Lutheran community: students, parents, association churches, alumni and supporters. Our old website served as a good starting point, and we learned a lot from it: what to do and what not to do.

Time for a New Website

Lincoln Lutheran will be launching a new website on Friday, August 27. To do some of the behind the scenes work on the new website, we have to take down the old website. Sorry about any inconvenience this might cause you. In the mean time, we have this really boring site for you to use.

You can still access the most popular parts of the Lincoln Lutheran site through the menu at the top of this page.

Website Information

As some of you have noticed, we've had a few problems with the website this year. Because of a problem that originated at the end of last school year, but was not noticed until the start of this school year, we have not been able to update certain pages on the site. After looking into the problem, we decided that rather then throw more time and money at the problem we would begin transitioning to a new website.

You may have noticed the somewhat unified appearance of the site. Some pages, this one for instance, look like they don't fit with the rest of the site. That is because we moved the dynamic portions of the site to the next version of the software that runs the site. With that change we hoped to buy some time while we did some behind the scenes work to prepare for the new site.

Some of you have been involved in the card-sorts and wire-frame evaluations that have helped us decide on the navigation and layout of the next site. We will soon be presenting that information to a company who will help develop a theme for the site.

Website Main Menu

Take a short survey to help decide where items should be on the new website menu. No experience needed.

Instructions are included with the survey. Basicly, you will be given a menu and a set of questions like, "How would you find Mr. Ziem's email address?" You drag that question onto the menu item where you think that answer should be. There are no wrong answers.

Here's the link to the survey: http://websort.net/s/347161/

Lincoln Lutheran News Available Via Twitter

Because of our recent website problems, we've been slowly moving things over to the latest version of the software that powers our website. One of the benefits of running the new software is that we can provide information in new and exciting ways. Twitter.com is a micro-blogging site. Think of it as a way to provide very short updates to people who are interested in what's going on in your business, organization or personal life. These updates can be viewed from Twitter's website (which isn't really any better than viewing them on Lincoln Lutheran's website), from your cellphone, and in a few other ways. Twitter is a free service. If you're interested in trying it out, sign up for an account at Twitter.com and follow lincolnlutheran.
