Message from the Principal:
Dear Longfellow Families,
All of us at Longfellow Elementary School are eager and excited to begin what promises to be a great year. We are proud to be working toward bright futures for all of our Longfellow students. As your principal, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors; staff, students, and parents, are excited to be here. This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun and nurturing environment.
Our theme for the 2015-2016 school year is "Let’s Go Get It”. The staff members of Longfellow Elementary are excited about preparing our students for the road to college and beyond. At Longfellow, we are committed to working tirelessly to provide challenging educational opportunities for every child, every day. But to be successful, we need your help. You are a special and unique part of our learning community. Collaboration with your child's teacher is a main ingredient to a healthy and successful year. In addition, there are many ways in which you can participate in school. Volunteering to work in the classroom, chaperoning field trips, becoming a member of our PTO and assisting with many activities, are just a few things that you can do to make a difference.
Longfellow Elementary students deserve the best. I am passionate about my mission as principal and I will make decisions that are in the best interest of your child. At the end of the day, our job is to continue to strive for excellence and make Longfellow Elementary School world class.
If I can ever be of assistance, please call or email me. It is through being a collaborative learning community with consistent, honest, and open communication that I can best serve our students. Thanks for the opportunity to serve our GREAT community as we welcome each of you. Let’s have a fantastic year!
Gerry S. Moore

School Closings and Delays
Muncie Community Schools makes every effort to notify school families in the event of school closings or a two-hour delay to the start of the school day. If school is canceled or delayed, we will utilize Honeywell Instant Alert, our phone and email notification system, and our school website, www.muncie.k12.in.us, and our Facebook to notify families. In addition, information will be sent to our local radio stations and the Star Press. The Indianapolis television stations also will be notified.
