Severe Weather Information

Each year the district typically faces a week or more of freezing cold weather or snow. If severe weather conditions exist, school district personnel will drive the roads early in the morning to determine if they are safe for bus travel. We work closely with Kelso Schools, the City of Longview and Cowlitz County to evaluate road conditions whenever bad weather exists.

If road conditions are bad the district may delay the start of school or cancel school for the day. Decisions will be made early in the morning and posted to the district web site and Facebook page by 6am each day. Typically, updates are posted throughout the morning as weather and driving conditions change – so check back frequently for updates.

Our Facebook page can be found at www.facebook.com/longviewcshools. If you would rather get messages sent directly to your phone go to www.flashalert.com and sign up for a free messaging service.

The safety and security of our students and staff members is a top priority. If you have questions please don’t hesitate to call your school.

Human Growth & Development Meeting

The state of Washington requires public schools to provide Human Growth & Development education to 4th and 5th grade students. In addition, schools are to provide HIV/AIDS education and prevention to all students each year beginning in the 5th grade, this includes the middle school and high school level.

The Longview School District is holding a meeting in the administration building at 2715 Lilac Street on Thursday, November 14 at 6:00 PM for any parent who has concerns about the materials. All instructional materials for both Human Growth & Development and HIV/AIDS will also be available for review at the district office from Tuesday, November 12 until Friday, November 15 from 9 am – 4 pm.

Following the review of materials, parents who wish to have their child excused from participation in either or both of the programs must sign a release form.  State law requires that a parent or guardian must review the materials before they can have their child or legal ward excused from participation.

Those parents who have no reservations about their child’s participation do not need to attend the meeting.

If you have questions about this correspondence, you may call the Curriculum & Instruction Department at 360-575-7009.

Fall 2019 message from the principal

Take The Five Day Challenge

Even as young as kindergarten, too many absences can cause children to fall behind in school and make it harder to learn to read. We encourage you to take the five (or fewer) day challenge. Students will earn weekly brag tags for perfect or improved attendance, or for arriving on time. The brag tags will fit on a ring that students will have on their cubbies here at school. At the end of the year they can attach them to their backpacks (that way they don’t get lost). Here are some suggestions for helping improve attendance:

  • Set a regular bed time and morning routine.
  • Lay out clothes and backpacks the night before.
  • Don’t let your child stay home unless the child is truly sick.
  • If your child seems anxious about going to school talk to the teachers, school counselor, or family liaison for strategies to help the child feel comfortable and excited about learning.
  • Avoid medical appointments and extended trips when school is in session.
  • Develop back-up plans for getting to school if something comes up.

We are excited to have your student as a member of the Kessler School Family!
