A new feature on the Lincoln Public Schools Web site offers a weekly Illness Report on student absences in the School District.

The Web report offers an average overall percentage of absences each week reported in the entire School District due to illness.  Further, you can also find the percentage of absences for the individual elementary, middle and high schools in the School District.

LPS Health Services reports the percentage of students not in attendance due to illness every Wednesday.

Any location with more than 10 percent of the population out of school, due to illness, is reported to the Lancaster County Health Department to help them in assessing local illness.

To find the Illness Report, go the Parent Center of the LPS Web site.
