Our bus drivers rise earlier than the rest to ensure each of the students arrives safe and timely. While Francis and John stay late, and James is the first to come, you can bet it's all put back and shiny, ready for the halls to fill and the classrooms to buzz with learning. The moment you walk in if your tummy needs to be fed, Liz and Rita have just what you need warm and tasty to fuel our bodies for learning. Although they may not reside within the four walls of a classroom, these individuals are the catalysts that make this school run. If you see our bus drivers, janitors, and or cooks, today's the day to say a big THANK YOU! #Reach.Educate.Inspire

This is Superintendent Keeney with an important message from Linton School. Linton School will be in a "soft lockdown" tomorrow as a precautionary measure to the events of the ND Public Service Commission hearing taking place at the Emmons Co. Courthouse regarding the proposed Pumping Station in rural Linton. A "soft lockdown" means that school will go on as usual inside our building. However, the doors will remain locked all day tomorrow and no one will be allowed to enter or exit the building unless it is an emergency situation. If your student has an appointment tomorrow, I am asking you to reschedule, especially if it is in Linton, if you are able. Parents of students in "old town", and those that live in town and walk to school, are asked to drive their children to and from school tomorrow. We will provide busing to our in-town students, who would otherwise have to walk home, but you need to inform either office if this is necessary for your student. These measures are simply a saftey precaution to keep all of us safe as the public hearing process is completed. The hearing will be broadcast on BEK TV, and is also linked to a YouTube channel that can be found on the ND Public Service Commission website. Thank You.

Proceeds from this fundraiser will be given to the family of Asher Sorrels. Asher Ryan Sorrels, son of Tony and Emma ‘Leier’ Sorrels and brother to Easton and Edison, was diagnosed with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) at 20 weeks. HLHS is a birth defect that affects normal blood flow throughout the heart with the left side not functioning properly. Asher had two of three surgeries at the Children’s Hospital in Minneapolis before going into heart failure. He has now been added to United Network for Organ Sharing (UNOS) as a 1A status for pediatric heart transplant and will remain in the hospital until a heart becomes available. After overwhelming support of this t-shirt fundraiser it was decided to open it up again for additional orders. All t-shirt proceeds will go directly to the Asher Sorrels family to help cover medical and traveling expenses along this journey. *Please see order form for more details and watch our facebook page for additional information closer to the benefit.
