Longfellow Elementary School
Together We Learn

Parent Involvement

Parents are a child’s first teacher.  The role played by parents is extremely important in influencing our children’s behavior and academic success.  We welcome parent volunteers and encourage participation our Family Literacy Program.  If you are interested in working closely with the school, please contact Felipa Garcia at 480-472-6542.

Los padres son los primeros maestros de los ninos.  Somos modelos para ellos en el  modo de comportamiento y los habilidades académicas que necesitan para llegar al éxito.  Queremos trabajar como equipo, con familias, para compartir de esta responsabilidad.  Si les interesa ser voluntario en la escuela, o participar en nuestra programa de literatura de familias, favor de llamar a Felipa Garcia al 480-472-6542.

We are updating our parking lot 

Changes to the current system will be:
1) Drop off and pick up of students in vehicles will now be in the North Parking lot.  Entrance into the school will remain the same--from Hall or Broadway.  No entrance to this area will be allowed from the North Parking entrance. This entrance is for staff only. 

2) Bus/Daycare drop off and pick up will now be located on the South side of the school--parents entering off Broadway will have to use the drive through lane to get around the buses and proceed forward through the drop off/pick up line.

3) The North parking lot is still for staff only.  Parents are asked to park in the parking lot directly in front of the office or on the South side of campus if parking is necessary. 

With your help, these changes will provide a safer way to get students onto and off of campus.  Thank you for your help and cooperation as we get this change implemented and create a safer system for students.
