In addition to completing enrollment forms, we must have a copy of a state-issued birth certificate, immunization record, and a health assessment form completed by a physician or clinic. Half-day students will attend from 8am-11am. USD 458 currently offers the option of Fee-Based All-Day Kindergarten. Read more about Fee-Based All-Day Kindergarten. You can view the Welcome Letter for Parents for more informtion about our roundup process. Feel free to contact Missy Smith at msmith AT usd458 DOT org, if you have any questions.
Do you know the status of your child’s meal account? Parents are responsible for monitoring and being aware of their balance. Hard copy account notices will be sent home weekly.
In order to receive email notifications, generated when a balance is less than $5, you must subscribe using the “Email Notifications” link on the left side after logging in to Skyward Family Access.
Parents can enter or update their email information through Family Access. However, it is EXTREMELY important that only ONE, valid email address be entered per guardian. Entry of multiple emails or text such as “none”, will result in errors to the system and undelivered reminders, both hard copy and electronic.
Parents who do not have an email address in the Skyward database should be receiving hard copy notices. If not, please contact the school office immediately.

Title 1 requires that parents be annually notified that Linwood Elementary School is a Title 1 school. According to the U.S. Department of Education, the purpose of Title 1 funding, “is to ensure that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high quality education and reach, at minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments”. The U.S. Department of Education provides supplemental funding to local school districts to meet the needs of students at risk of failure and living at or near poverty. The aim of Title 1 funding is to bridge the gap between low-income students and other students. With the implementation of “No Child Left Behind”, schools must make adequate yearly progress on state testing and focus on best teaching practices in order to continue receiving funds.
Student Council members run the sale of miscellaneous school supply items such as pens, pencils, folders, erasers, calculators, pencil cases, etc., from a cart twice a month on Fridays. The Student Council is also involved in selecting the items purchased as inventory for sale.
Students in first-fifth grades are able to make purchases and there is a $5 spending limit per person.
Revenue raised by the cart is used to purchase supplies in order to re-stock the cart. Profit from the cart is used to support student council programs at LES including, Adopt an Angel, Red Ribbon Week, Homecoming Float, and the student garden.
