    Traffic Safety

    At Longfellow, student and traffic safety is also a top priority.  Safe driving around our school improves the safety of all children, including yours.  Please keep in mind the following safety rules:

    • When dropping off your child, pull to the curb safely, have your child exit carefully and depart immediately.  Please yield to pedestrians crossing in a crosswalk.  Do not double park or block crosswalks, sidewalks, driveways, red zones, or fire hydrants.

    • Please yield to pedestrians when riding your bike/scooter to and from school.  Pedestrians must use marked crosswalks to cross the street. 

    • Please use the valet lanes on Bixby, Armando & Olive.  Make sure that backpacks and school items are with your child(ren) before entering the valet. Reduce speed as you enter the valet lane separated by the cones.   Once your child has exited the vehicle, please exit the valet and enter traffic cautiously.  Please refrain from making U-turns in the school zone.

    Parents, we want to make sure that all of our families are receiving district/school communications.  Please make sure that you update your primary phone number and email address in ParentVue.   If you have any questions, please feel free to call the Longfellow office Monday-Friday from 7:30-4:00PM at (562) 595-0308

    Seguridad del tráfico

    En Longfellow, la seguridad de los estudiantes y del tráfico también es una prioridad principal. Conducir con seguridad en nuestra escuela mejora la seguridad de todos los niños, incluido el suyo. Tenga en cuenta las siguientes reglas de seguridad:

    • Cuando deje a su hijo, acérquese a la acera de manera segura, haga que su hijo salga con cuidado y parta de inmediato. Ceda el paso a los peatones que cruzan en un cruce de peatones. No estacione en doble fila ni bloquee los cruces peatonales, las aceras, las entradas de vehículos, las zonas rojas o las bocas de incendio.

    • Ceda el paso a los peatones cuando ande en bicicleta/scooter hacia y desde la escuela. Los peatones deben usar los cruces peatonales marcados para cruzar la calle. 

    • Use los carriles de valet en Bixby, Armando y Olive. Asegúrese de que las mochilas y los artículos escolares estén con su(s) hijo(s) antes de ingresar al valet. Reduzca la velocidad al entrar en el carril de valet separado por los conos. Una vez que su hijo haya salido del vehículo, salga del valet e ingrese al tráfico con precaución. Absténgase de dar vuelta en U en la zona escolar.

    Padres, queremos asegurarnos de que todas nuestras familias reciban comunicaciones del distrito/escuela. Asegúrese de actualizar su número de teléfono principal y dirección de correo electrónico en ParentVue. Si tiene alguna pregunta, no dude en llamar a la oficina de Longfellow de lunes a viernes de 7:30 p.m. a 4:00 p.m. al (562) 595-0308.

    After School Pick-up Procedures

    We ask you to remember that school is in session from 8:00 a.m. until 2:05 p.m. M, T, W, & F for grades 1, 2, & 3 and 2:10 p.m. M, T, W, & F for grades 4 & 5 (1:30 p.m. on Thursday for grades 1-5).  The gates will be opened daily by the end of the school day to accommodate parents, guardians & child care providers wishing to come on campus to pick up students.  We respectfully request that you wait off campus until the gates are opened.  You may wish to have your child meet you at a designated spot on the large playground in case you are not able to pick them up on time.  This way, your child is supervised and less concerned if you are late.  The playground is supervised daily until 3:45 p.m.  

    Children staying on the playground after school may not leave campus for any reason except to go home.  After school students are not to leave campus then decide to return. For example, a student may not leave campus and return with food purchased at a local establishment. Under such circumstances, parents/guardians will be notified and the student’s after school playground privilege may be revoked. However, if the student feels it is necessary to return to the school campus due to safety reasons, the student must go directly to the office and/or speak directly with a coach.

    Thank you for understanding our need to keep our students safe and secure and our campus quiet and calm so our teachers can focus on teaching and learning all day at Longfellow.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to call our office at your convenience.


    Traffic Safety – A Non-Negotiable Expectation for Our School

    Nothing is more important than working together – students, teachers, staff and families – to help maintain safety at Longfellow.  Our school’s programs, including Valet Drop Off (on Bixby Avenue), written reminders, a detailed drop off map in our Longfellow Handbook, Walk to School Wednesdays, adult supervision,  traffic cones and working with our city’s traffic patrol officers are all aimed at helping our Longfellow Lions  return home at the end of the day healthy and safely. We need to continue to work together to make sure that we… Never park in red curb zones, never drop off students in the middle of the street, never speed in our neighborhood, never compromise the safety of our students with unsafe driving habits, and please do not use the Hughes parking lot as a drop-off for our Longfellow students.  Your commitment to traffic safety is essential.  The LBPD also monitors the area to support our traffic safety efforts.  While the morning can be a busy time of day, please leave home with plenty of time so that we never have to compromise the safety of anyone. 


    Longfellow Attendance Update

    It is our school goal for every Longfellow Lion to earn at least one perfect trimester attendance award.  However, we realize there are valid reasons for students to miss school. Absences due to illness, family funerals, religious holidays, and doctor and dentist appointments are excused.  However, according to state law, absences for any other reason are unexcused.

    After 3 unexcused absences or tardies in excess of 30 minutes, parents will receive a letter that notifies them that their child is being “reported to the Long Beach Unified School District as a truant from school pursuant to the provisions of Section 48260 of the Education Codes.”  So if your child has three or more unexcused absences, or tardies of more than 30 minutes, you can expect to receive a “truancy letter” the week of November 1st. Attendance notes are due the day the child returns to school.  If you have attendance questions, contact our attendance clerk, Ms. Diane Eley, or our counselor, Christy Cleveland..


    Registration Information

    Registration packets are available daily from 8:00-noon or 1:00-3:00. Items needed to register your child are a birth certificate, proof of residency and immunization record.  For more details about these items, please click on the registration button.

    Extended Recreation Hours

    We are happy to let you know that our after school recreation program has extended its hours.  Starting immediately, the playground will be opened from dismissal time until 3:45 p.m.  Please remember that our school office closes at 4:00 p.m. so it is mandatory that all students be picked up on time.
