Welcome to Kindergarten. We look forward to meeting our new families.
The Longfellow Office will be closed from June 20th to July 19th. The office will re-open on July 20th. Office hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Information will be mailed to each student's home in early August with the important beginning of the year details.

The transportation department assigns your bus stop, pick-up and drop-off times based on your home address. If your student is being picked up or dropped off at a daycare provider, you must complete an alternate transportation form. Please visit the district's website at wcsoh.org and click on the "Transportation Services" link to find the 'Online Alternate Site Request Form". Complete and submit on-line. Please remember to keep your child's schedule as consistent as possible.
CAR DROP-OFF & PICK-UP—Cars may not park in the area marked for buses on Hiawatha Avenue in front of the Building. Pick-up and drop-off students in the parking lot at the orange traffic cone marked “student pick-up area”. Be sure to follow the painted arrows. A Longfellow Rocket Pick-Up card should be displayed on the dash of the car with the students first and last name clearly printed.
If you bring your child to school late and staff members are no longer on arrival duty, you will need to report to the office to sign your child into school for the day.
If your child is riding a bus to or from school be sure the bus tag is attached to the backpack. Click on this link to see a sample of the bus tag. http://www.wcsoh.org/Content2/ADK
