Lincoln High School should be ready to usher in new students in fall 2019, after a $93.3 million modernization project is completed.

Queen Anne students are expected to move from Ballard High School to Lincoln in Wallingford, which will serve 1,600 students.

Parents and students can receive an update on the school’s progress 6:30-8:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1, at John Marshall Alternative High, 520 N.E. Ravenna Boulevard. The event will provide an opportunity to meet new staff, receive an update on academic programming, learn the transition plan for incoming freshman and sophomores, plan for athletics and activities and ask questions of LHS staff.

It will also be the time to discuss the formation of a Lincoln Parent Teacher Student Association, and representatives from the Washington State PTA will be present to discuss the process.

Lincoln School opened as a high school in 1907, and then closed in 1981. Over the last 20 years it has been used as an intermediate site for other district schools and programs displaced by their own construction projects.

The project is being funded through the Building Excellence (BEX IV) and Buildings, Technology and Academics (BTA IV) levies approved by voters in 2013 and 2016, respectively.

Construction started in June 2017.
