R.A. Long Students Visit the Nike Campus

In an effort to show students a variety of career opportunities, a group from R.A. Long High School visited the Nike Campus in Beaverton to participate in the Jordan Brand Conference. The students heard a motivational talk from Howard White titled, “Believe to Achieve”, and spent time talking with Nike marketing executives.

Much of the discussion centered around persistence, hard work and learning about the numerous different opportunities for their future. Thank you to Nike for providing a great experience for our kids.

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.

Students Visit Perry Tech

Yesterday, 15 students from Discovery, Mark Morris & R. A. Long visited Perry Technical Institute in Yakima, WA. While at Perry Tech they toured many programs that are offered: Construction, Agriculture Tech, Auto Mechanic, Welding, Machining, Electrical, Plumbing and Instrumentation & Automation. Their hosts explained that going to Perry Tech is like having a job, you attend year round, clock in and out. Hours are approximately from 7am  to 4pm depending on program. We saw classes in session in the classroom doing book work and in the labs. During the tour it  was very gratifying to see former Longview School District students hard at work in the classrooms. Most, if not all of the students, were excited to see what programs were offered. Seeing the students at Perry Tech gave them a better idea of what Perry Tech has to offer.

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.
