Report Cards

Our second semester ends soon! The District’s elementary schools have moved to online report cards. Using our secure PowerSchool system, you will be able to view, save, and print your student’s report cards once they are released. Our report cards will be available after school on Wednesday, May 29th. 

If you don’t have a PowerSchool account, or if you have forgotten how to access the system, please call Tina or Vicki at 721-4439 for instructions and information. Only parents are allowed to create accounts to access the private and confidential information contained in Power School. When you call our office you will be provided with a unique access number and instructions that will allow you to access only your child’s information.

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.
