Longleaf School of the Arts

Celebrating 10 Years of Excellence

Outstanding Opening!

Last week, our entire school community contributed to our smooth opening. Let’s continue with a great start by reviewing the LSA Community Handbook, specifically for policies regarding academic work submission, attendance, dress code, technology, and behavior. Starting Monday, the school rules will be enforced.

Student Assistance and Schedules

Thank you to our Student Services Depertment for working countless hours to make sure each student receives the courses that meet their instructional needs for the 2022-2023 school year!

Schedule change requests will be considered until Friday, August 26th. Email or stop by Student Services with questions.

Students, please remember that if you have a concern while at school, you can email or go by Student Services or the front office for help. Email should be used for non-urgent matters.

Parents/Guardians, please remember to allow 48 hours for teacher or staff responses to email, as our first priority is working with students in the classroom and the school building. Please remind your student to go to someone at school if they need help.

Coloring Book Club Needs your help!

If you would like to support the Coloring Book Club by donating markers, colored pencils, or gel pens for students to use who may not have their own coloring supplies, it would be greatly appreciated. Also, donations of cardstock to print coloring sheets, as well as coloring books are appreciated. Donations can be turned in at the front office. Thank you for your support!
