Dear Parents and Families,

Thank you for supporting the district’s remote learning efforts. We are hearing great reports about students staying involved in learning.

As remote learning continues, hopefully the process is getting easier for you to manage. We appreciate your patience as we continue to refine our system.

You may be wondering about what school will look like next year.  We are closely monitoring guidance from the governor’s office and the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.  As we wait for this guidance, we have begun preparing for multiple scenarios.  Whatever direction is taken, we will be prepared to provide the best education we possibly can within the parameters provided by the state.  We will keep you informed as we learn more.  Your patience continues to be greatly appreciated.

Some of you have gotten connected with our expanded meal distribution service. We are providing a breakfast and lunch to hundreds of kids each day. If you have a question, or need to get connected to receive meals, please email infoteam@longviewschools.org.

Our high school senior celebrations continue on social media and the district web site. If you visit the district Facebook page, you will see senior spotlight videos and photos of many graduates. The Class of 2020 is an amazing group of young adults.

Kindergarten registration is open online at longviewschools.com. Our student enrollment web page includes a how to video to help you get your child registered. Now is the time to get your 5 year old signed up and ready to go for the upcoming school year.

If you need help or support, please contact your teacher or school principal. We are here for you and want to help.

Thanks again for supporting our schools.

Take care, have a great weekend and stay safe.

Sincerely,

Dan Zorn, Superintendent

Longview Public Schools
