Cardington-Lincoln Local Schools Open Enrollment Period Opens April 2, 2018 And Will Close September 28, 2018

The priority by which applications will be approved for acceptance will be based upon the date of receipt and then by the time of receipt.

The final number of applicants approved for enrollment will be based upon those established capacities.

Once accepted for open enrollment placement in the Cardington District, a student will not be displaced in future years, but you must complete a new application for each new year.  Applications can be found here and in each of the District offices.

Follow-up Letter From Superintendent Petrie Regarding Todays (2/23/18) OneCall to Parents

Please Note The Following Changes To The Varsity Girls Basketball Schedule:

Thursday February 1 at Heath has been moved to Tuesday February 13


Cardington-Lincoln Local Schools is thrilled to welcome the Drug and Alcohol Awareness and Prevention (DAAP) committee to our school on Thursday, February 15th to host our first Hidden in Plain Sight (HIPS) parent training. Hidden in Plain Sight is a parent workshop to help parents be more aware and better informed about drug/alcohol experimentation, use, and abuse by their child. No other program like this exists in Morrow County; therefore, DAAP was compelled to fill the void.

From Superintendent Petrie:

I am writing to address a perceived threat that was made yesterday by a student at the High School.
Yesterday, we initiated an investigation into reports of a student threatening violence against the school.  The district immediately took the threat seriously and involved law enforcement.  It was determined by the administration and law enforcement that there was no imminent danger to our students based on the facts presented.
Out of precaution we asked law enforcement to be on campus this morning for added security and assistance with our investigation.
We are confident that our schools are safe and that instruction can continue uninterrupted today.
Please understand that conveying additional rumors through social media about the incident may cause panic amongst our parents our students.  Any further information about the threat will be posted on our Facebook page and website.


Thursday, November 2 and Tuesday November 7 are scheduled one hour early release days, and Wednesday, November 8 is a scheduled two hour late start.
