Reminder About Energy Drinks and Soda Rules
Last year our site council discussed policies regarding Energy drinks and sodas. During our discussion, we decided that there needed to be some rules regarding both of these items at school. We also understand the importance of researching benefits/risks whenever we consider school policies. Attached you will find an article that explains the harmful effects of energy drinks and young children. Considering the negative health effects of these drinks, our site council made the decision to ban all energy drinks during school hours.
New Rules Regarding Beverages at Linford for 2015-2016
Energy drinks will not be allowed at any time on school grounds. Energy drinks that are at school will be confiscated and discarded. If they are un-open, we will contact parents so that they can pick it up if they wish.
As far as sodas, site council decided not to ban all sodas at all times. Sodas will NOT be allowed before school or during lunch. This will allow classroom parties to include or not include sodas at the discretion of individual teachers.
All students have access to water during lunch and throughout the school day. Water bottles are encouraged, so please feel free to send one with your student daily! Milk and juice remain an option as well. If you have any questions or concerns about these new rules, please feel free to contact Dave Hardesty or Stacie Anfinson. We appreciate your support in this effort to help encourage our kids to make healthy choices!
The new design has been approved and will be available soon. Look for order forms to come home after Thanksgiving Break! Order forms will also be posted on the website for parents to download and print from home.
Some alterations may be necessary when we go to print, however, the original integrity of the design will be as close as possible. Thank you to all of the students that submitted an entry! We look forward to next year’s contest!
Please help your students remember to wear a warm coat, hat, and gloves to school during the winter months. If the temperature at school is above zero, wind chill included, the students will be outside for recess. We check our weather station here at school when we check for temperature. Our weather station is attached below.
The after school program, Double Dose, will begin on November 2. The first 7 weeks will have a focus on reading skills and comprehension. Mrs. Pullum and Mrs. Maus will be teaching the 1st – 3rd graders and Mrs. Hunsaker and Mrs. Lopez will be teaching the 4th – 6th graders. Double Dose will begin directly after school and will end at 4:00pm. Notes have already gone home to those that teachers feel would benefit from an extra dose of reading. If your child did not receive a note from their teacher and you are wondering about whether or not it would be a good fit, please feel free to contact your child’s classroom teacher. Transportation is available for every child enrolled in Double Dose. Thank you!
When: Monday – Thursday, 3:00 – 4:00pm
What: Focus on Math Skills – Number Sense and Operations starting January 1th
Who: Mrs. Pullum & Mrs. Maus (1st – 3rd grade); Mrs. Hunsaker & Mrs. Lopez (4th – 6th grade)
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
