    November Principal Letter

    Hello Longfellow Community,

    Please remember that Monday, November 22nd through Friday, November 26th is Thanksgiving recess which means that there is no school during that week.  Also, on December 3rd, we will have our third Spirit Day, which will be Winter Wonderland Pajamas Day.  Let’s all celebrate winter in southern California! Students are encouraged to wear appropriate winter themed pajamas (no lingerie, spaghetti straps, boxers, etc.), robes (to be worn over pajamas or shirt) and accessories, during the school day. We can’t wait to see all of our spirit minded students on December 3rd !  

    We are excited to promote our first parent workshop which is focused on supporting parents with understanding Common Core standards and how parents can help their child at home.  Please click the following link for more information.  

    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.

    • Pedestrians must use marked crosswalks to cross the street. 

    • Do not block crosswalks, sidewalks, driveways, red zones, or fire hydrants.

    • 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.

    We all must do our part to ensure the safety of all students.   

    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.

    Hola Comunidad de Longfellow,

    Por favor, recuerde que del lunes, 22 de noviembre al viernes, 26 de noviembre es receso de Acción de Gracias que significa que no hay clases durante esa semana. Además, el 3 de diciembre ,tendremos nuestro tercer día del espíritu, que será el día de las maravillas de invierno dia de pijamas.¡Celebremos todo el invierno en el sur de California! Se anima a los estudiantes a usar pijamas de invierno apropiados (sin lencería, tirantes finos, boxers, etc.), batas (para usar sobre pijamas o camisas) y accesorios durante el día escolar. No podemos esperar a ver todos nuestros estudiantes el 3 de diciembre!  

    Estamos muy contentos de promover nuestro primer taller para padres, que se enfoca en ayudar a los padres a comprender los estándares básicos comunes y cómo los padres pueden ayudar a sus hijos en casa. Haga clic en el siguiente enlace para obtener más información.  

    Seguridad del tráfico

    En Longfellow, la seguridad de los estudiantes y del tráfico también es una prioridad. Conducir con seguridad alrededor de 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, hágase a la acera de manera segura, haga que su hijo salga con cuidado y váyase inmediatamente. Ceder el paso a los peatones que cruzan en un cruce de peatones.

    • Los peatones deben usar los cruces peatonales marcados para cruzar la calle. 

    • No bloquee los cruces peatonales, aceras, entradas para vehículos, zonas rojas o bocas de incendio.

    • Utilice los carriles de valet en Bixby, Armando & 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 aparcacoches separado por los conos. Una vez que su hijo haya salido del vehículo, salga del valet y entre al tráfico con precaución. Por favor, abstenerse de dar vueltas en U en la zona escolar.

    Todos debemos hacer nuestra parte para garantizar la seguridad de todos los estudiantes.   

    Padres, queremos asegurarnos de que todas nuestras familias estén recibiendo comunicaciones del distrito / escuela. Asegúrese de actualizar su número de teléfono principal y su 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: 30-4: 00PM al (562) 595-0308.

    ¡Rugido en Longfellow Lions!

    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.
