School/Community ForumDear Community Member:

The community is invited to our bi-annual School/Community Forum on Thursday, March 25, 2021 at 7:00 PM, at Longwood High School. Residents are invited to express their points of view to the Board of Education, or just listen to the comments made by others. Organizations within the Longwood community are also invited to send a representative to comment on behalf of their organization.

This is an opportune time to address the Board of Education, and it has never been more important for your voice to be heard. Our children are being challenged with ever increasing demands both academically and socially. Many of these demands require that we as their parents and teachers become more involved than ever before. Once more this year the Longwood Board of Education and District Administration will be sponsoring several parent and community initiatives designed to involve more of our parents in their child’s academic and social/emotional development.

Each speaker will be given the opportunity to speak for up to five minutes instead of the usual three minutes. Speakers will be assigned a specific time to speak on a first-come, first-served basis as they register. Speakers should also submit a written text of their comments. Individuals who prefer not to speak at the public forum may submit their comments in writing. Although we will be unable to read into the record written comments from those unable to attend, they will receive a response. We ask that this be limited to two (2) typewritten pages. While questions are generally not answered at the Forum, each speaker will receive a follow-up response from the administration.

To register or receive additional information about Longwood’s School/Community Forum, please call the District Clerk, Lillian Pizzolo at 631-345-2795, Monday through Friday, between the hours of 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM, or e-mail

As always, we look forward to your input on Thursday, March 25, 2021. Please join us in the Senior High School Board of Education meeting room at 7:00 PM. Please note, masks are required, temperatures will be taken upon arrival to the high school building and attendance is limited fifty (50) people in the boardroom.
