School begins at 8:25AM and students can enter the building at 8:17AM. Students should not arrive prior to 8:00AM as there is no adult supervision until that time.  When the bell rings at 8:17, students should report to their TEAM (advisory) teacher. Students will spend extra time with their TEAM teacher during the first two days getting acquainted with classmates, practicing locker combinations, touring the building and meeting other teachers in their house.        LV House Configuration

FALL SPORTS:
CROSS COUNTRY  -  Join our cross country team today! Cross Country at Lineville is a fun and exciting sport where you learn to train the body and develop healthy lifestyles!  Running is a lifelong activity!  Practices typically involve a fun run and some running games.  Everyone gets to practice and compete if they desire.  Meets are optional and just another way to get involved and have fun.  There are approximately five meets for the season and parents must transport to and from the meets.  More information (practice & meet schedule, permission form, optional CC T-shirt order form) will be available during Open House, August 27th, on the rack outside the office the first week of school and also under Athletics on our webpage after August 18th. Picking up your student promptly at 4:15PM is greatly appreciated.  The permission form must be on file in the school office before the student can participate.  Last year there were over 70 students involved in Cross Country.  Come Run With the Roadrunners!!!

 

BOYS & GIRLS SOCCER  -  The Skills & Drills Soccer season will run Monday thru Thursday (Look for schedule the week of August 18th on the LV Athletic page).  If your student is interested in participating, you will need to fill out and return to the school office a permission form prior to the first practice.  Forms will be available during Open House on August 27th in the gym, on the rack outside the school office or under Athletics on the school webpage.  PLEASE NOTE that all students will need to have shin guards and rides need to be here at 4:15PM for pick up. 

 

BUS INFORMATION:  Lamers Bus Lines will be sending home a postcard with your child’s bus number and pick-up/drop-off location. All students will be picked up and dropped off at their designated stop assigned by Lamers.  If your child has a different pick-up/drop-off location other than home, you will need to fill out a Change of Transportation form available online on the home page under “Transportation”, at Lamers or the rack outside the Lineville office. This form MUST be on file before the first day of school.  Students CAN NOT take a different bus home unless there is an emergency and arrangements must be made with Lamers.  Bus drivers CAN NOT and will not accept notes from parents.  Please contact Lamers with any other questions at 434-5100.

 

LINEVILLE/BAY VIEW PARENT CLUB:  The parent clubs from Lineville and Bay View will continue to be combined for the 2014-15 school year. Combining the groups has helped increase attendance, reduced the number of meeting for parents with children in both schools and helps ease the transition from Lineville to Bay View. Each club will continue to have its own treasury and fundraising activities.

 

Meetings are generally held on the third Monday of each month. All dates will be published on the school calendars. The first meeting will be held on Monday, September 15th at Bay View Middle School beginning at 6:30 p.m. All parents who want to become involved are welcome and encouraged to attend! Educational research clearly shows that parents who are “connected” to school have children that do better academically and socially. We would love for you to stay “connected” with the PTO!    Find out more / How to get involved


LINEVILLE FUNDRAISER:  Our annual fundraiser will run from September 9th through the 26th.  This year’s fundraiser is a magazine sale.  The fundraiser is run by our Lineville Parent Booster Club.  Most of the proceeds are used to help off set academic field trip costs.


P.E.CLOTHES:  Students will be required to bring a change of clothing for Physical Education. Any light colored t-shirt with first and last name written on it in permanent marker; any color athletic shorts with no pockets-fingertip length, socks and shoes will be needed for all P.E. classes.  Shorts and shirts will also be available for purchase through our Parent Club.  If you are interested in this optional purchase the  order form can be returned to the Lineville Office.  Order forms will also be available after the Getting Ready Class Parent meetings on August 19th & 21st  and at Open House to place an order.  Students will NOT be assigned a P.E. locker in the locker room. All P.E. clothing will be kept in the student’s hall locker and brought to and from class. 
 

APPROPRIATE SCHOOL DRESS:  Please use good judgment when dressing for school. Clothing which is too tight, has inappropriate logos or writing on, sloppy or exposes the body inappropriately, constitutes a safety hazard, or is a distraction will not be acceptable at school. Please pay special attention to be certain that tank top straps are at least three fingers wide and that shorts reach to the end of the fingertips. Shoes with wheels are not safe and therefore not allowed.   Flip-flops are allowed, but are discouraged because they can at times be inconvenient or hazardous.

 

CELL PHONES & OTHER ELECTRONICS:  We are aware that cell phones are being used more and more by our students. Therefore, we do not ban cell phones at Lineville. We do, however, expect that phones be kept in a locker and that they not become a disruption to the learning environment at our school. Texting and making phone calls during the school day on cell phones is not acceptable. If you need to contact your son or daughter, please call the main office at Lineville at 662-7871 and help us maintain the learning environment of our school.

 

We also do not ban iPods or other electronics at school.  However, we remind students that they can not use them while in school or at recess without permission from a teacher.  Bus drivers will also allow electronic devices to be used appropriately on the school bus. There have been some issues in the past with electronic devices being lost, damaged or stolen while at school. It is very difficult for us to recover such items when lost. Please consider this before allowing your child to bring any electronic device to school.

 

BALLOON / FLOWER DELIVERIES:  We occasionally get deliveries of balloons or flowers for students at school. Please be aware that if you chose to have items of this nature sent to your student they will not get them until the end of the day as to not to create a disruption in the classroom. Students are not allowed to bring balloons on the bus, so

arrangements should be made to pick your student up from school. We realize that deliveries of this nature are very heartwarming and special, but at the same time we feel that we need to discourage them. Thanks for understanding.



Box TopsMILK CAPS / CAMPBELL SOUP LABELS / BOX TOPS....
Currently Lineville is still collecting Box Tops.  If we do get Campbell Soup labels turned in we send them to an elementary school.  Milk caps are not longer being saved as there are no cash back offers available.
