Welcome Back Newsletter


The Linford staff would like to invite all Linford families to join us on Wednesday, August 24 between 2:00 and 3:00 for a “Meet and Greet”. Please feel welcome to come by our school to meet your teacher(s) and drop off school supplies. We are looking forward to beginning a new school year, meeting our new families and students, and catching up with those who have attended Linford in the past.

New Start and End Times


The excitement of a new school year is upon us. This year there will be changes to our start and end times.

Superintendent Jubal Yennie announced that school start times for Albany County schools would be adjusted this coming year to ensure greater efficiency for transportation services and provide for safer operations for ACSD#1 students.

We will begin school promptly at 8:05 and dismiss students at 3:05. Please note that supervision of the playground will begin at 7:30 AM.

We ask that you drop off your student(s) NO EARLIER THAN 7:30 at Linford.

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
