Downtown Holiday Parade of Lights

Linford will have a float again this year. Come out and support our students and staff. We would love to see you there!


Box Tops for Education

New this year, Box Tops for Education is working to transition to a technology based application. They are phasing out the traditional Box Tops which are cut off of the boxes and labels of our groceries.

Since, Box Tops for Education is making this transition, we will be changing our procedure for Box Tops as well. For the time being, we will continue to collect cut out Box Tops, but will be working to phase those out. Please make plans to visit the website below for more information regarding the electronic app for collecting Box Tops.

Please contact Jen Studyvin if you have questions.

Winter Weather

 

Winter in Wyoming brings cold temperatures and lots of wind! Please supply your child(ren) with a winter coat, boots, a hat, gloves, and snow pants. These items will make your child(ren) more comfortable in the winter weather at recess.

Our students go outside for recess as long as the wind chill temperature is “0” degrees or above.

This is determined by the weather station mounted on the roof at Linford. Feel welcome to access the live weather station under the About Us tab. 

If the wind chill temperature falls below “0” degrees, the students will remain inside for recess time.


Linford Exceeds Expectations!!


For the first time under the current Wyoming Accountability in Education Act (WAEA), Linford is Exceeding Expectations!! We are very proud of reaching this status, especially since only 14% of schools in Wyoming were designated as Exceeding Expectations!! Congratulations to our students, staff, and families!!! We would also like to thank each of you for your hard work and dedication to our school!!

Text Messaging Service

Parents and Guardians

You can take advantage of our Text Messaging Serviceschoolmessenger-opt-in111

Our school utilizes the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages, straight to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts and more.

You can participate in this free service* just by sending a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number, 68453.

You can also opt out of these messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.

SchoolMessenger is compliant with the Student Privacy PledgeTM, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.

Information on SMS text messaging and Short Codes:
S
MS stands for Short Message Service and is commonly referred to as a “text message”. Most cell phones support this type  of text messaging. Our notification provider, SchoolMessenger, uses a true SMS protocol developed by the telecommunications industry specifically for mass text messaging, referred to as “short code” texting.  This method is fast, secure and highly reliable because it is strictly regulated by the wireless carriers and only allows access to approved providers. If you’ve ever sent a text vote for a TV show to a number like 46999, you have used short code texting.


Attendance Matters

Attendance Matters logo
Common sense tells us that kids who miss school miss opportunities to learn. Some absences are just unavoidable. But, how much is too much? New research tells us that missing an average of just two days a month makes a child much more likely to fail a subject or to not graduate from high school. This research also points out that parents often underestimate the effects of missing school. It's in everyone's interest that students are at school the vast majority of the time. Thank you for making attendance a priority at Linford Elementary School. For more information feel welcome to visit the website below.
