Principal's Message

  • Kathy Jenkins Dear Lucas Elementary family,

    It is with great anticipation and humility that I write this letter of introduction to you as the new principal of Lucas Elementary School for the 2018–19 school year. I am honored to have been selected to serve and look forward to meeting each of you.

    On a personal note, I was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois, and come from a very large family. On a professional note, I am beginning my eighteenth year as an educator, and this will be my fifth year as a principal. I spent approximately eight years as an assistant principal, and prior to that, I was an early childhood educator for five years.

    I am a graduate of Depaul University in Chicago, Illinois. I completed my bachelor’s degree in communications in 2000, dual master degrees in elementary education/early childhood in 2005, and my doctoral degree in Educational Leadership in 2013.

    I am so excited to join the Lucas team and to get the year started. See you soon!

    Sincerely,

    Kathy Jenkins, Ed.D.

  • Message from the Superintendent

    As we prepare to welcome students back for the start of a new school year, we would like to take a moment to remind families of the commitment to safety, equity, and inclusion that the Iowa City Community School District holds. Every student in each of our schools deserves a safe, secure, and nurturing learning environment. It is our responsibility as educators to provide this environment. It is also our responsibility to ensure that there are mechanisms in place for students and parents to report instances that do not meet our expectations for such an environment. We then have an obligation to rectify these situations and restore the learning environment for our students.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (8/6/20)

    We have been notified by the Iowa Department of Education that our application for permission to begin the year in an off-site learning model has been denied. While this is not the outcome that we were hoping for, we have been preparing for this possibility. We plan to discuss our next steps with the Board during their meeting on Tuesday, August 11, 2020, and we will provide an update to families as soon as possible.
