Back to school information (2021)

Counselor Corner  /  News & Events students wearing face masks sit and stand around the word "welcome"

Welcome back, Lions! I hope you have had a most excellent summer. We had a wonderful time here at summer school and are busy planning for the school year to come. As I’m sure you are aware, there have been many changes to COVID regulations in the last few weeks as the pandemic continues to evolve. Our top priority is the health and safety of your student(s) and the Lincoln Park community, so are plans are evolving as well. This page will be updated as new information arrives.

The Lincoln Park office will reopen on August 23. Please call (503) 256-6504 once the office opens to set up a time if you need to visit in person and wear a mask. Many of the registration forms and information can also be found at the David Douglas Registration and Enrollment page.
