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!!
