Dear Longmeadow Community:
This is the time of year when we like parents to review "stranger danger" with their children. The police chief, John Stankiewitz, has posted the a message on the LPD Facebook page. Please take time to read it and discuss with your children.
Here is a link to the message: Parent Advisory

We are beginning the process of establishing our bus routes for the 2016-2017 school year. In order to create efficient routes with centrally located stops, we ask that you register your child(ren) prior to Friday, June 24th, 2016.
You must register your child(ren) for transportation annually. If your child(ren) live less than 2 miles from your assigned school and are in grade 6 or your child(ren) are in grades 7-12, there is a fee of $235 per child with a family cap of $470.
As a reminder, the new Transportation Policy adopted by the School Committee on April 27, 2015 includes the following:
● The routes will run primarily along main streets.
● Students will not cross main roads unless there is a crossing guard or stop light present.
● The length of routes would be determined by the number of stops, and this depends on ridership.
● Service for students in grades 7-12 will be provided on FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE BASIS. There will be limited seats on each bus.
The deadline for registration is June 24, 2016. In order for your child to be registered for the bus, you must sign and complete this form and forward to the Business Office. Registrations will be processed in the order in which they are received.
The address for the Business Office is 535 Bliss Road, Longmeadow, MA 01106. Checks or money orders may be made payable to the Longmeadow Public Schools. A deposit of $50 per student is required at the time of registration. The balance must be paid in full by August 5th, 2016 in order to receive a bus assignment and a bus pass.
Late registrations after June 24, 2016 will be processed in the order received and some buses may fill to capacity. Therefore, seating will not be guaranteed after the registration deadline and late registrants may be put on a waiting list.
If you believe that you qualify for financial assistance based upon your family/household income, please contact the Business Office at 413-565-4200, extension 4022 for information.
We used two snow days this school year. The last day of school is scheduled to be Tuesday, June 21st! It will be a half day of school for students.
Good morning:There will be a 2-Hour delayed opening this morning due to the inclement weather.
The Longmeadow Enrichment Summer Program is now posted and they are accepting registrations!
The Longmeadow School Committee, at its meeting on February 22, 2016, voted to accept School Choice applications from students residing in the state of MA and interested in attending the Longmeadow Public Schools. School Committee opened four (4) positions at the Kindergarten level for entrance in the 2016-2017 school year. There is no opportunity for entrance to LPS through the School Choice program at any other grade level.
