Principal's Message

  • Kelli Webb Longfellow Elementary School blends the tradition of a turn-of-the-century building with the modern adaptations needed to accommodate successful 21st-century learning. The rich cultural diversity of the neighborhood makes it a unique and diverse elementary school within the Iowa City Community School District. 

    The educational program here incorporates an emphasis on learning the common core curriculum through experiential learning, basic skills instruction, and enrichment opportunities. Included in the program are activities that integrate multicultural experiences, the arts, technology, and a lot of reading. The staff is committed to building high self-esteem in each child, fostering positive, cooperative attitudes and focusing on the whole child.

  • Second Trimester E-Registration Information

    We are excited to announce that e-Registration is now open to provide parents the opportunity to indicate their child(ren)'s enrollment selection for the second trimester of the 2020-21 school year. All families must indicate an enrollment preference for the second trimester as soon as possible, but no later than November 4, 2020. This must be completed in PowerSchool by all families, whether you wish to switch between enrollment modes or stay in your current enrollment mode.

  • Updates to Inclement Weather Guidelines

    The seasons have started to change and winter weather is right around the corner. We want to share some changes to our approach to inclement weather days this year and provide a reminder of where this information can be found. Moving forward, the District will provide online instruction on days when the weather prevents us from having in-person classes. Rather than our traditional “snow days”, these days will now be considered “virtual learning days”.

  • Grab & Go Meal Program Information

    We would like to provide information on school meals for all students beginning September 8, 2020. As was previously announced, we will begin the school year in a 100% off-site learning model. Due to this, we will continue our Grab & Go meal program to provide breakfast and lunch to District students.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (9/24/20)

    We are looking forward to welcoming our students back into our schools in a hybrid learning model beginning Monday, September 28, 2020. As we shared earlier, we have implemented comprehensive health and safety mitigation techniques to help create a safe learning environment when students return. Expectations reflect guidance and consultation from the CDC, IDPH, and JCPH. One important note, face masks will be required for students and staff while in our schools, on District property, and while riding the bus or in other District vehicles. We will provide a minimum of two cloth face masks for each student; however, students are encouraged to bring their own if they so choose.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (9/18/20)

    We are regularly monitoring the daily COVID-19 positivity rates in Johnson County. The rates have continued to drop in our community over the last several days with today’s positivity rate at 8.2%. Due to this, we are excited to announce that the District will transition into a hybrid learning model beginning Monday, September 28, 2020.

  • Return-to-Learn Update (9/16/20)

    We would like to provide information regarding the process we are using to determine movement between learning models (100% off-site, hybrid, 100% on-site). Much like the decision-making process for inclement weather days, our Board of Directors has authorized the Superintendent to make decisions regarding transitions between learning models. To help guide that decision-making process, we have developed a COVID-19 Decision Matrix which was approved by the Board on September 1, 2020. The matrix was developed in collaboration with Johnson County Public Health and Johnson County Emergency Management. It provides data guidelines to determine if a shift in learning models is required for an individual building or the entire District.
