I hope that you are all having a wonderful summer. Construction for our new building opening 2019-2020 has begun!
In order to maintain the safety of our visitors and students during construction, it is necessary to change the car and bus traffic pattern at Longfellow Elementary. We will continue to use the same bookbag tag and parent pickup loop procedures when dismissing students. Please read the attached letter from Superintendent Thompson and Mayor Morley describing the changes for cars, buses, and walkers. A map is also attached for your review.
