RECC at LoES for 2019-2020

The Longfellow Regional Early Childhood Center (RECC) programs are making preparations for classes for the 2019-2020 school year. These classes include children with and without disabilities. The program’s focus is helping all children develop communication, literacy, math, problem solving, motor, and social skills. Parents of children who will be at least 3 years of age by September 1 may contact Cecilia Booth in the school office for an application package beginning February 15. All applications must be returned by the last Friday in March. A limited number of openings are available for children without disabilities. Children are selected based upon screening information given on the application form and the “Ages and Stages Questionnaire,” as well as observations of the child’s participation in a playgroup. If necessary, a lottery process is conducted. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Dailey at (410) 313-6879.

Planning the HCPSS School Attendance Areas

This past January, the Board of Education directed that HCPSS initiate a systemwide school boundary review, which could potentially impact any or all of the 74 comprehensive schools in our county beginning in the 2020-2021 school year. This review will begin on June 13 with the presentation of the 2019 Feasibility Study and is critical due to population growth that has resulted in crowding at many schools while schools in other areas are underutilized. Families are encouraged to remain informed and engaged throughout the process and there will be multiple opportunities for you to participate. As Superintendent Dr. Michael Martirano said earlier this week, a successful outcome for this process depends directly on the level of respect, empathy and careful listening that we as adults model for our children. We must remember that they will follow our lead in responding positively to the challenges and changes that are inevitable throughout life. I ask our community to practice civility during what can be an emotional process. Please be sure to visit the boundary review page on the HCPSS website for more information, resources, a timeline, and ways to participate. Additionally, HCPSS staff would like your questions related specifically to the way the boundary review process is being conducted and communication and engagement efforts.
