Keycard Information for Student Transportation

Students will no longer use a SEPTA transpass for transportation. SEPTA is providing eligible students with one SEPTA Keycard for the year. Mrs. Thomas, Dean of Students, will assign all Keycards and distribute them on the first day of school.

*Keycard eligibility is based on the student’s address and must be a minimum of 1.5 miles away from school. Please be sure to keep your address updated with the main office. The LINC High School does not approve or deny Keycard requests, eligibility is decided by The School District of Philadelphia’s Office of Transportation.

Join The LINC’s School Advisory Council (SAC)

SACs are peer-elected, collaborative teams composed of family members, the school principal, teachers or other school-based staff, students, and community members. SACs champion the work for improved student achievement, effective teaching in the classroom, parent and community engagement in the educational process, and communication and support between home and school. SAC meetings must be held at least every other month, and SACs must have data-driven, strategic conversations that center on the three primary focus areas for SACs.

Contact Mrs. Thomas, Dean of Students, to join our SAC! Email her at tthomas2@philasd.org

Emergency Funds

The purpose of emergency funds is to offer a full array of supportive services, as needed, to students to ensure full participation in their education. These funds supplement/cover unexpected school expenses during family emergencies.  Any student actively attending a School District of Philadelphia school (grades K-12) is eligible for emergency funds if they are experiencing a crisis or sudden hardship that negatively impacts the family’s income. Examples are: a recent loss or death of a family member, fire or other damage to personal property, recent loss of income, sudden illness of a family member, unexpected medical bills, or theft of personal property in school.

If you are in need of emergency assistance to purchase school uniforms or school supplies, please contact one of the School Counselors for more information: Jennifer Mapp, jmapp@philasd.org, or Dominic Stinger, dstinger@philasd.org.
