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.

Please Be Peanut/Nut Aware

It is our goal at Linford Elementary to differentiate our instruction as well as practices to meet the needs of students.  We are sensitive, that is, to the needs of individual students in order to maintain a safe and optimal learning environment.  Currently some of our students have contact allergies to peanuts. These allergies are severe and can result in life threatening situations.  Therefore, we ask that parents consider not sending their students to school with any food items that contains or has been manufactured on equipment with peanuts.  We recognize that it is an inconvenience and appreciate the community effort that you all are willing to extend to assist us our attempts to have a safe environment for all students. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call Mr. Hardesty.

Thank you! 307-721-4439
