Important Message from the Superintendent of Schools

Dear Long Beach Families,

As a parent and as an educator, I am heartbroken and horrified by the shooting in a Texas school earlier today that claimed the lives of 18 children and a teacher. We had a Board of Education meeting tonight, and as my phone lit up with the news from Texas, I felt that familiar pit in the stomach when one hears of a tragedy that no parent or community should ever endure. It is just unthinkable.

First, I want to assure you that our PPS staff will be alert over the next few days to any students who may have heard of this shooting and are struggling emotionally. I know that you are probably doing the same as I am right now in trying to limit our younger children’s exposure to the news and social media. As this incident will likely be a focus of media and public conversation for some time, parents and guardians should be prepared to discuss this incident with their children in a manner that is age appropriate and reassures children about their personal safety. If your children are struggling over the next few days, or if you need some resources to support your children, let your building administrators know. We have wonderful mental health support staff who are ready to help them (and you) in any way.

Second, I want you to know that we have already and will continue to review our own security protocols in ensuring that our campuses are secure. Both the Long Beach and Nassau County police have already been in touch, and they have assured us that there are no threats in this area. They have been wonderful partners and I know that they will continue to make sure that our schools are as safe as possible.
I know that all of us will be keeping the families involved in this tragedy in our prayers and thoughts over the coming days. My heart just breaks for them.

Sincerely,
Dr. Jennifer Gallagher
Superintendent of Schools

*******
Estimadas familias de Long Beach,
Como padre y como educador, estoy desconsolado y horrorizado por el tiroteo en una escuela de Texas el día de hoy que cobró la vida de 18 niños y un maestro. Tuvimos una reunión de la Junta de Educación esta noche, y cuando mi teléfono se iluminó con las noticias de Texas, sentí ese nudo familiar en el estómago cuando uno escucha sobre una tragedia que ningún padre o comunidad debería soportar. Es simplemente impensable.

Primero, quiero asegurarles que nuestro personal de PPS estará alerta durante los próximos días a cualquier estudiante que haya oído hablar de este tiroteo y tenga dificultades emocionales. Sé que probablemente esté haciendo lo mismo que yo ahora mismo al tratar de limitar la exposición de nuestros niños más pequeños a las noticias y las redes sociales. Como es probable que este incidente sea el centro de atención de los medios de comunicación y de la conversación pública durante algún tiempo, los padres y tutores deben estar preparados para hablar sobre este incidente con sus hijos de una manera que sea realista, apropiada para su edad y tranquilice a los niños sobre su seguridad personal. Si sus hijos tienen dificultades en los próximos días, o si necesita algunos recursos para apoyar a sus hijos, informe a los administradores de su edificio. Contamos con un maravilloso personal de apoyo de salud mental que está listo para ayudarlos (y a usted) de cualquier manera.

En segundo lugar, quiero que sepa que ya hemos revisado y continuaremos revisando nuestros propios protocolos de seguridad para garantizar que nuestros campus estén seguros. Tanto la policía del condado de Long Beach como la de Nassau ya se han puesto en contacto y nos han asegurado que no hay amenazas en esta área. Han sido socios maravillosos y sé que continuarán asegurándose de que nuestras escuelas sean lo más seguras posible.
Sé que todos nosotros mantendremos a las familias involucradas en esta tragedia en nuestras oraciones y pensamientos durante los próximos días. Mi corazón simplemente se rompe por ellos.

Sinceramente,
Dra. Jennifer Gallagher
superintendente de escuelas

Long Beach kindergarteners sang songs and hosted a museum walk of recycled art to celebrate Earth Day

Kindergarteners at Lindell Elementary in Long Beach have been learning about ecosystems in science and the importance of taking care of our Earth. The kindergarten teachers collaborated with the music teachers who put together an Earth Day performance. Highlights of the performance included songs about the sun, Earth Day decorations, and colorful tie-dye outfits.

As a culminating activity, students were given a recycling “at home” project to complete with their family members. Their finished projects were showcased at the school and presented as a “Museum Walk” after the Earth Day performance.
