The students and staff at Linn Grove wore their sports attire and kicked off the assembly with Linn-Mar Cheer leading them in the district’s fight song. The cheer squad also performed a few of their stellar stunts for the enthusiastic audience.

Special guests included some of Linn-Mar’s well-known students athletes including Falon Corey – LM Poms, Ryan Schmidt – LM Football, Nic Uhlir – LM Basketball, Lane Halupnik – LM Basketball, Paige Simoens – LM Cheer, Cassidy Burkle – LM Cheer & Iowa Elite Cheer Coach, Olivia Garcia – LM Soccer, Leroy Enzanasi – LM and Regional Soccer who represented the US in Costa Rica.

 Cancellation & Delay Procedures at Linn-Mar CSD
 

Winter has arrived here at Linn-Mar, and so has the threat of inclement weather. It's a good time to review our district's cancellation and delay procedures. (These procedures can also be found on page 47 in the 2014-2015 District Handbook.)

Please avoid calling the school about delays, cancellations or dismissals. Unless you see an announcement, assume school is running as usual.

Linn-Mar Community Schools will not open when travel is too difficult to guarantee the safety of our students. If bad weather forces the closing of schools, we will utilize the following notification system to alert parents and staff of a delay or cancellation. Early closings and activity cancellations, due to adverse weather conditions or other emergencies, will be communicated in the same manner.

All delays, cancellations and early dismissals will be communicated on...

  • District website red "alerts" banner (www.linnmar.k12.ia.us)
  • District Facebook page as status update ("like" Linn-Mar Community Schools)
  • District Twitter for emergency text notifications ("follow us" @lmnotify -OR- text follow lmnotify to 40404 on your cell)
  • TV Stations: KCRG, KFXA, KGAN, KWWL (all TV stations have text alert notification systems as well)
  • Radio Stations: KCCK, KHAK, KKRQ, KMRY, KZIA, WMT
