Our 4th and 5th graders have been chosen to be part of a study on health and physical activity conducted through Wayne State University. An opt out slip will be sent home. If you DO NOT want your child to participate in the study, the sheet should be signed and returned. If their participation is ok, you do not need to send the slip back.
To read a letter from Superintendent Maleyko regarding the March 14 student planned “walk-out” to honor the victims of the Stoneman Douglas High School tragedy please visit his blog: https://superintendent.dearbornschools.org/

We want to thank all the hard working Engineers, Custodians, and staff members in the Operations and Grounds Department for putting in many extra hours this weekend to clear school parking lots and sidewalks.
We also want to extend a thank you to all the crews at the City of Dearborn who have been working hard all weekend to clear streets in our city.
After checking road conditions, talking with the City of Dearborn, and having discussions with our Transportation Department the District does not anticipate any wide spread problems or delays.
However, with the amount of snowfall and cold temperatures, conditions may exist on a few side streets that require slower then normal and extra cautious driving. Please be advised that these conditions may cause some buses to run a bit behind schedule on Monday.
Bundle up and see you in school on Monday!
In keeping with this month’s focus of generosity, Long students and staff donated $1 to wear pajamas last Friday. We raised $245 which was used to purchase more pajamas for our donation to Scholastic Book Clubs Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive. As a result, Long School was able to donate 70 pairs of pajamas! Thank you to Mrs. Lee and/or Mrs. McShane, who have coordinated this project for several years here at Long. Thank you to everyone for your generosity!
On December 5, Long School welcomed members of the Red Wings school assembly program. The team, led by Coach Ryan, spoke with students about the importance of education and dedication. They also had students and staff actively participating in several hockey related competitions. Along with the insightful messages about working hard, eating healthy and exercising, the club donated a full set of floor hockey equipment to the students of Long School! Thank you and Let’s Go Red Wings!
