A .pdf which shows acceptable shoes is available.

Of course, you will need to log in to view billing information and grades.
  • Technology Information

    Computers and technology play an important role in the learning process, and therefore, Linsly often expects students to perform tasks, complete assignments, and look up information using that technology. It is necessary for all students and parents to understand technology requirements and recommendations in the Upper School and Middle School.
  • Summer Reading

    Every student at Linsly is expected to participate in our summer reading program.  Shortly after the beginning of the school year, every student will be given an assessment on the required reading.  Thus, it is important that the reading be completed before you arrive to campus in August. The summer reading lists are posted online.
  • School Calendar

    Please download the 2017-2018 academic calendar. Of course, this website's main news page should be viewed weekly, if not more frequently, for important calendar additions or changes.
