Announcements & Information



Due to Otterbein University’s selection as host of the next Democratic National Debates, the Westerville City School District (WCSD) has announced a 90 minute early release for October 15, 2019.

Longfellow All Day Kindergarten School will dismiss at 2 p.m.  on Tues., Oct. 15th.

Parents and guardians of Westerville City School District students are encouraged to plan accordingly for this day. Though school is being dismissed early, road closures and changing traffic patterns likely will cause delays in bus routes. The Westerville Police Department has informed district officials that they will assist school buses in navigating road closures so they can complete their routes as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Please mark your calendar for these important events:

Picture Re-take Day - October 16th - 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.

No School - October 18th - OEA/NEA Day

Parent - Teacher Conferences (Evening) by Appointment - October 23rd 

No School - October 24th - Parent Teacher Conferences by Appointment

No School - October 25th

Transportation Information

The transportation department assigns your bus stop, pick-up and drop-off times based on your home address.  If your student is being picked up or dropped off at a daycare provider, you must complete an alternate transportation form.  Please visit the district's website at and click on the "Transportation Services" link to find the 'Online Alternate Site Request Form".  Complete and submit online. Please remember to keep your child's schedule as consistent as possible.         

Safety First

CAR DROP-OFF  &  PICK-UP—Cars may not park in the area marked for buses on Hiawatha Avenue in front of the Building.    Pick-up and drop-off students in the parking lot at the orange traffic cone marked “student pick-up area”.   Be sure to follow the painted arrows.  A Longfellow Rocket Pick-Up card should be displayed on the dash of the car with the students first and last name clearly printed.

 If you bring your child to school late and staff members are no longer on arrival duty, you will need to report to the office to sign your child into school for the day.

If your child is riding a bus to or from school be sure the bus tag is attached to the backpack.  Click on this link to see a sample of the bus tag. 

Thank you for your cooperation. If everyone adheres to these safety rules, student arrival and dismissal will be safe for all!
