Link will partner with the Newark Department of Health to host a COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic at the school (23 Pennsylvania Avenue, Newark, NJ), on Friday, December 17th, from 1 to 5 pm. The Pfizer vaccine will be offered to children ages 5 to 15, individuals 16 and older, and anyone who needs a booster. Students and their families are invited to attend and secure the vaccine. Children receiving a vaccine must be accompanied by a parent or guardian (21 years or older) who can give written authorization. (Click here for the required Parental Consent Proxy Authorization Form..) All adults will also be required to sign a form. (Click here for the Vaccine Screening Consent. Form.) If getting a second dose or a booster, you must bring your COVID-19 Vaccination Card. Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms will not be permitted entry into the building. All must wear masks and physically distance themselves while inside.
Students and staff dressed in pink in observation of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and donated a nice gift to the Susan G. Komen organization. Thanks, Linkers, for giving back to the community-at-large! Click on "Read more..." for photos.
A great day for Link’s 7th graders, who connected virtually today with author Kwame Mbalia about his award-winning novel, Tristan Strong Punches A Hole In The Sky. This event was held in celebration of students completing their summer reading assignments. Scholars and teachers interacted with the author about his career and writing process and received feedback on their writing endeavors. Thank you, Mr. Mbalia, for sharing so much with our Linkers!
Link has joined with other Newark charter schools to ensure safe reopening and operation of schools as the COVID pandemic continues. The school signed a “compact” last year with shared safety and health guidelines during remote and hybrid learning and have updated it for full in-person learning for this school year.

The 2021-2022 school year has begun! We were so happy to welcome our scholars to school today – our returning scholars as well as our new fifth graders and kindergartners. It was wonderful to greet everyone in-person. Link is especially excited about the launch of our new Kindergarten this year…the start of expanding to a full K-8 school. We look forward to a great year at Link!
