  • Longfellow's Back to School Night

    Longfellow will be hosting a Back-to-School night on Wednesday, August 18th from 4:00-5:30 PM. Please join us to meet your student's teacher and bring school supplies prior to the first day. Families can enter through the front door along 5th Street.

    Arrival & Dismissal Times

    As the school year starts, please remember punctuality and attendance is a major key to your student's success!

    Longfellow Razorbacks begin their day on the playground each morning. Students may arrive as early as 7:40 AM to begin their day. Please do not send students before this time. School begins promptly at 7:50 AM, and students arriving after 7:50 AM will be counted tardy.

    Dismissal for kindergarten is 3:05 PM at the north-west door of the building along 5th Avenue. All other grades are dismissed at 3:15 PM. Students who walk will be released from the Library doors on the south west corner of the building. Students who are being picked up can be met along 21st Street.

     

    Breakfast

    All students are welcome to join us for breakfast daily at 7:20 AM. Students may arrive to the north east door along 21st Street (by the picnic tables) where staff will be waiting. Students will eat in the cafeteria and then join the morning meeting on the playground. Remember, breakfast and lunches are FREE to all SBPS students for the 2021-2022 school year!

     

    Bring Your Own Water Bottle!

    Please send your student to school each day with a clean water bottle! We will be utilizing our bottle filling stations this year again!
     

    Start of the Year Paperwork

    On the first day of school, students will bring home a small packet of forms. Please make sure to return all of them the next day! The emergency card is especially important - please remember to write down all methods of contact including work phones and email address. Also make sure to list all persons authorized to pick up your student AND sign the back of the card!

  • STUDENT DROP-OFF AND PICK-UP 

    Traffic and parking along 21st Street will be changed during student drop-off and pick-up times.  Short term parking (2 minutes or less) will be allowed along the south side of 21st Street between 5th Avenue and 6th Avenue during student drop-off and pick-up.  The intent is for the parent to stay in the vehicle and to park long enough for the student to safely exit/enter the vehicle, after which the parent will vacate the parking space. 

    Barricades will be used at 6th Avenue to delineate a protected crosswalk from the northeast corner of the intersection with 21st Street, south to the school sidewalk.  This protected crosswalk will be in place during the hours of student drop-off and pick-up.  During student drop-off and pick-up times east bound traffic on 21st will only be allowed to make a left-hand turn on to 21st Avenue (north bound). 

    Parking along the south side of 21st Street between 6th Avenue and 7th Avenue will be limited to daycare van parking during student drop-off and pick-up.  The north side of 21st Street in this location will be teacher parking only. 

    Traffic on 7th Avenue will not be allowed to turn (west bound) on to 21st Street during drop-off and pick-up.  Barricades will be used at 21st Street to delineate a protected crosswalk on the west side of 7th Avenue and 21st to prevent west bound traffic from entering during student drop-off and pick-up times. 

    General instructions for student drop-off and pick-up:

    From 5th Avenue, enter 21st Street east bound and pull up to the south yellow curb as far to the east as there is space and allow the student to exit/enter from the right side of the vehicle.  The driver shall remain in the vehicle and once the student is safely on the sidewalk, proceed east to 6th Street, turning left (north) on to 6th Avenue.

    Parents who wish to park and walk their kids to the school playground or park and walk up to pick up their kids after school need to park in the blue areas shown around the school.
