Longfellow Primary will end its school year on Friday, May 19, 2023 due to a summer flooring project.

The Emerson Primary school year will end early on Monday, May 13. Emerson will be replacing classroom flooring this summer; it is a big project. Ending the school year a couple of days early will give Emerson staff enough time to pack up their classrooms, which will allow the flooring project to get started with enough time to finish before school starts again. Emerson Primary families have been previously notified and will receive reminders as the end of the year nears.

All other schools will end as scheduled on Wednesday, May 15.
