Walk To School – Wednesday May 2nd (Note Date Change)
Wednesday, May 2nd is another Walk to School Event for all three of our elementary schools. Hopefully the weather cooperates and we can walk in the spring sunshine! Feel free to walk, bike, scooter, or roll (roller skate or roller blade) to school as a family if you're able. We will meet per usual at Bliss Park at 8:10 a.m., but feel free to walk, bike, or roll from any location to BHS! There will be incentives for those students who walk, bike, scooter or roll to school. Be sure to wear a helmet if you're riding or rolling!

Massachusetts DESE Report Card
Posted January 16, 2018
We are pleased to enclose an overview of our school’s “report card”. Report cards answer important questions about a school's overall performance and contain specific information about student enrollment and teacher qualifications, student achievement, accountability, how a school is performing relative to other schools in the district and the state, and the progress made toward narrowing proficiency gaps for different groups of students.
"Our Kind Community"
These titles align with our theme this month "Our Kind Community".
I’m a member of a Raising a Child with a Growth Mindset page on Facebook and this week’s focus is instilling kindness and this webpage was shared with books for kind on how to be kind, activities for home and school. Many of the books are already in heavy rotation but thought some might be of interest.

"Safe Routes" Community
posted Sept. 12, 2017
The Longmeadow Police Department would like to remind parents who have children that walk or ride their bicycles to our elementary and middle schools that Longmeadow is a “Safe Routes” Community. There are twenty three crossing guards strategically positioned at high traffic intersections and crosswalks to ensure your children arrive to school safely and return home safely. We encourage parents to remind their children to cross where there is a crossing guard, to heed the instructions of the crossing guard, and for those who ride their bicycles, wear a helmet. (Required by law 16 and under must wear a helmet)
Last school year, Blueberry Hill School was awarded the “Gold Level Award” for their part in the Massachusetts Safe Routes School Program (SRTS). The Longmeadow Police Department has been working with SRTS and the Principals from each Longmeadow elementary and middle schools to make all the elementary and middle schools a “Gold Level Award” winner.
On October 4th, 2017, the Longmeadow will be participating in International Walk to School Day (iWalk). Members of the Longmeadow Police Department will be walking with elementary school children from Center School, Blueberry Hill School, and Wolf Swamp Road School. This nationwide event allows the Longmeadow Police Department to build a relationship with the children with the focus on demonstrating the importance of pedestrian and bicycle safety.
