Dear Longmeadow Families:

Longmeadow Public Schools wants to keep students safe online at school and at home.  Throughout the month of March, we will be sharing daily tips related to internet safety and digital citizenship through a webpage found on our district's website (link here).   For your convenience, we will be tailoring these tips to meet specific needs and concerns of parents and students of different school levels.  We will also include links to sites where you can find additional information that you may find helpful.  


Included on the site is a form that can be used to submit questions you may have regarding use of social media, digital citizenship, and internet safety.  We will do our best to address these questions through the webpage.  We will also share your questions with our upcoming speaker, Lawrence Snyder of Baypath University, who is scheduled to make a presentation at Longmeadow High School on March 10th at 7:00 pm.

FY2016 Budget

posted Feb 11, 2015, 6:00 AM by Dianne Georgantas   [ updated Feb 11, 2015, 6:01 AM ]

Dear Longmeadow Community:

 

The School Committee met Monday, February, 9, 2015 to discuss the budget.  LCTV was unable to record the public presentation, so we encourage you to review last week’s budget presentation as this video contains all of the important information.  The link is on our website at:

www.longmeadow.k12.ma.us

School Committee was concerned that the weather impacted attendance at the meeting as no parents or community members attended.  Unfortunately, while there was a snow date scheduled for Thursday evening, more snow is predicted and the Select Board is in need of our budget by Friday.  For this reason, the School Committee has approved the budget, as presented last Monday night, but is leaving the window open for feedback until Friday at noon.  You may email the School Committee at scemail@longmeadow.k12.ma.us with your comments for our review.

Should there be issues to reconsider, then the School Committee will reconvene at a future date to discuss matters.  If there should be no new public comment or information, then the proposed budget will be forwarded to the Town without further review.

We appreciate your support and involvement.
