Front Entry Procedures

 Starting Monday, November 30th, you will be required to buzz in to gain entry to the school. Doors will be open from 7:00am-7:55am daily, so please do not drop students off prior to 7:00am. The buzzer to gain entry is on the left side of the main corridor. When you press the button, someone from the office will speak with you and buzz you in. See the attached letter for more information.

 Thank you for your cooperation with these new procedures. School safety is a priority for our students and staff. The new procedures will better ensure the safety of all of our Linford Lions.

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 or Mrs. Anfinson.

Thank you! 307-721-4439
