The following are two important updates to the Reopening of Longwood Schools plan:

Thursday, August 13, 2020

As a result of the August 6 parent survey feedback, the Longwood Central School District has approved the full-time distance learning option as part of the District’s Reopening Plan. The District is now offering BOTH the hybrid model of instruction as well as the full-time distance learning model for the 2020-2021 school year. Further details on registering your child for the full-time distance learning option will be shared from your child’s building shortly. Thank you to all who participated!
Editor’s Note: Please be sure to check back at this link on our Longwood website for the latest updates in this highly fluid effort to reopen our schools.

Civics and Town of Brookhaven officials hold Press Conference on June 25th in Ridge.

(Click on pic for Press Conference Video on Facebook) 
Many thanks to Gail Lynch-Bailey of the Middle Island Civic and the Longwood Alliance for organizing this event which was held in front of Gray's Hardware in Ridge on Thursday, June 25th. Thanks also to our outstanding and supportive Town of Brookhaven leadership (Supervisor Ed Romaine, Councilwoman Jane Bonner and Councilman Mike Loguercio) along with our dynamic District 3 NYS Assemblyman Joe DeStefano and District 2 NYS Assemblyman Anthony Palumbo (currently running for retiring NYS Sentor Ken LaValle's seat in Albany).   

A Message from Gail Lynch-Bailey
Many thanks to the participants, organizers and hosts of our RT 25 Protest on Thursday, June 25, 2020. Scott and Holly Wood graciously allowed us to set up at the beloved Gray's Hardware store. Town of Brookhaven amplified our voices and contacted some listening media folks. Coram, Gordon Heights, Middle Island and Ridge Civics united to decry the continued neglect of our Main Street. Longwood Firefighters described the dangers they and the people they rescue face every day on this decrepit asphalt. And Elected Officials told the truth: the DOT LIED to them -- and to all of us! To the many supporters who wanted to be with us but couldn't because of social distancing -- thank you and don't give up the fight. Keep calling Regional Director Richard B. Causin, P.E. (Acting) at (631) 952-6632 and the Regional Public Information Coordinator at 631-952-6929.

"A Little Burned Biscuit Never Hurt Anyone."

“When I was a kid, my Mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my Mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage and extremely burned biscuits in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed!” …read more
