Principal's Message

 
 
Hello and Welcome to Longley Way!
2021-22 School Year

 

Hello Longley Way Lions! It is with great enthusiasm that I introduce myself as the new principal of Longley Way Elementary School. It is truly an honor and privilege to serve and work alongside a staff and community dedicated to such excellence. It is clear that meaningful relationships among staff, students, and parents are highly valued and I look forward to partnering with you this school year.

 

There is great excitement at Longley Way as we prepare for the return of our students to full-time, in-person instruction for the 2021-2022 school year. Know that the safety of staff & students is a top priority as we navigate the ever changing COVID-19 pandemic together. The last 15 months have challenged us in many ways. We have discovered our capacity to persevere as a result of the collective support of one another. I am encouraged by the resiliency of the Longley Way community and know that together, we will continue to ensure the growth and success of our students. Updates and communication will be provided through our new COVID-19 Webpage.

 

At Longley Way, we truly value the partnerships we have with our families. We welcome parent volunteers and

encourage you to get involved with our amazing PTA . A little volunteer time and PTA support goes a long way and

there's always an opportunity for you to be a part of the Longley Way team. No matter how big or small your contributions, you have the ability to have a positive impact.

 

As you navigate this website, be sure to check out our school and district calendars, along with the parent tab, which has our Student Handbook, PTA information/website, and other helpful information.

 

I am excited to meet all of you soon. As principal, my door is always open and I value your input. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, suggestions, or ideas to help make this school year the best possible.

 

 

Sincerely,


Kelly Arena
