Full Day Preschool 2020/2021
Full Day Preschool is offered at seven locations throughout the district for four and five-year-old children. It is solely funded through parent fees. Since the Full Day program does not receive any state funding the program fully relies on parent fees to offer high-quality programming for our students. Click here for more information.
During a guidance lesson, students were encouraged to participate in the "Do Good From Home" challenge to help spread kindness during this time. Here are some of the acts of kindness that the caring students of Lino did! #DoGoodFromHome
A message from Lino Lakes Elementary:
Lino Staff is Thinking About Their Students!!
Good morning Lino Families,
Yesterday the Governor announced that distance learning would continue for the remainder of this school year. This is not what we had hoped for as my staff and I miss teaching our students in person. However, the uncertainty around this is now known and we will make plans to ensure our students continue to learn and develop as best they can under the circumstances.
From our FL district:
While most of our families are managing or even thriving with distance learning, we understand that distance learning was a challenge you never anticipated, and perhaps do not enjoy. We recognize that some of you continue to work full time, many of you have multiple school-age children and all of you are under a varying degree of stress from this pandemic situation.
We want you to know, when you reach out, we are listening. Our teachers continue to update and refine their approach to distance learning, and we are committed to supporting our students and families through this tough time. We are committed to two essential goals between now and the end of the year: first, we are committed to advancing your child’s learning and, second, we are committed to staying connected with your child.
One recent change that we have made is that elementary physical education and music grades will now be noted as NG (No Grade) on your child’s report card.
Music and physical activity can be exceptional ways to boost your child’s personal well being, and our specialist teachers are committed to providing great activities that can enrich and inspire your child, without adding to a family’s ever-growing to-do list. Please use these activities as tools to help your child stay engaged, happy and healthy, without the stress of needing to submit additional assignments and maintain a certain grade.
As a part of the Governor’s order, May 1 and 4 will be non-instructional days for students to allow time for staff to plan for distance learning through the end of the year. If your child's teacher has already shared lesson activities for May 1, your child can wait for further direction from the teacher on those activities. May 1 will remain a pick-up/drop-off day as originally planned.
At Lino Lakes Elementary we will continue to meet and improve our practice. Elementary teachers are not trained to teach away from their physical classroom so it is a learning experience for us as well as you at home.
One physical piece we need to accomplish is to return your student's personal belongings to you. I will send out a separate communication on how we plan to do that in an efficient manner that is easy for all of you.
We will be planning some "in person" activities for our Lightning Students to see their teachers before the end of the year as well as an end of year experience
While now, more than ever, it is easy to see and hear what other districts, or schools, or teachers are doing, I ask you to focus on communicating with your child's teacher and staying committed to helping your student finish as best they can and ready to move on to next year at Lino Lakes Elementary.
Let us continue to work together, offer constructive feedback to improve, and reach out for help.
Thank you for all of your support so far. On behalf of your Lino Staff, I will say it is appreciated.
Mr. Geary, Principal
Lino Lakes Families,
Beginning April 1, we want to continue to provide access to our school library during distance learning. Please feel free to browse the catalog to see what we have available, but keep in mind, that given the circumstances, not all materials may be available, even if the catalog says they are available. Please email library book requests directly to Erica Daher at EDaher@flaschools.org. All requests should be received by Wednesday, and can be picked up along with other materials on Friday. The media webpage is updated frequently with links to excellent resources that families can use during distance learning.
Please note that returned books will be quarantined for 1 week before being redistributed or reshelved for the safety of our staff and families.
A link to the media center website can be accessed here: https://media.flaschools.org
Starting Wednesday, March 18th, our building will be closed. Please call 651-982-8850 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns. Please monitor your email for future communication. Distance learning began April 1. Thank you for your cooperation.
We are Lightning!

We believe students need fresh air and physical activity, therefore all students will go outside for their assigned grade level recess time. Please be sure your child is properly dressed for the various weather conditions. During winter months, this includes wearing a hat or ear band, mittens, snow pants, jacket, and boots. Students will go outside unless the temperature/wind chill is below -10 degrees.
School Closing Information Links
The Forest Lake Area School District will work to provide you with school closing information as quickly and early in the morning as possible. However, sometimes there is a delay between the time local TV and radio affiliates are notified and the school closure information is broadcast to the public.
The following links provide information on how the decision to close schools is determined and where to find the most up-to-date school closing information:
School District Emergency Weather Hotline: (651) 982-8143If school is closed due to inclement weather the SAC/Sonic program will be open at three locations for any students that are already enrolled in the program. Those locations and phone numbers are :Lino Lakes Elementary 651-982-8862Forest View Elementary 651-982-8221Wyoming Elementary 651-982-8014
Here Comes the Bus now available
- View the real-time location of your child's bus
- Access the app from your smartphone, tablet or computer
- Receive push notifications or email alerts
- Send your child to the bus stop at just the right time, every time
As you may have heard, we have implemented e-Learning days that will allow our students to continue learning on days when school is cancelled for weather-related reasons. These e-Learning days will only be implemented if more than two school days must be cancelled this year -- in other words, the first two “snow days” of the school year will not be e-Learning days.
If forecasts suggest that an e-Learning day might be possible, you can expect more communication on this topic from your child’s school and/or teachers with specific information about what students should do.
