From the Superintendent
Thank you for publishing Dr. Allen's statement regarding the incidents from earlier in the week.  However, the statements posted prior to the press release are not those of Dr. Allen, nor are representative of Lincoln County Schools.  The story lead-in, coupled with Dr. Allen's photo, undeniably assumes these are the words of Dr. Allen.  We want to make it clear that the community understands these are words from the Lincoln Herald ~ not Dr. Allen.
