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.

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.
