Principal's Message

Dear Longbranch Families:

On behalf of our instructional staff, welcome and thank you for being a part of our community of energetic, inquisitive, creative, collaborative thinkers and scholars.  Our school is filled with laughter and learning from start to finish each day.  Our goal is to make school the “best place on Earth” for all 855 of our Longhorns and their families.

Since our inception six years ago, our school has received numerous accolades including two Golden Apple recipients, two Kentucky PTA Classified Staff Members of the Year, three Kentucky PTA Certified Educators of the Year,  two Kentucky PTA Volunteer of the Year, PTA Best Mens' Group in the state of Kentucky, Best PTA Membership Drive in the state of Kentucky, two Rotary Teacher of the Year awards, three B.E.S.T. Partnership awards, Silver Level School Health Awards, KASA School Administrator of the Year in 2014, a Kentucky Teacher of the Year Finalist in 2015, a National Counselor of the Year Finalist in 2015, the Kentucky Counselor of the Year in 2015, and two Northern Kentucky Health Department School of Excellence Awards.  We are a recognized Energy Star School and we are a member of the Alliance for a Healthy Generation Healthy Schools Initiative.  

We are proud to be a Leader in Me school.  This means we follow a leadership school transformation model in which our students learn and practice the 7 Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey, form their own leadership teams, and are empowered to lead themselves and their peers.  We believe there are leadership qualities in each child.  We believe each child can become a leader of his or her life.   It is of utmost joy to see each child in our building learn to lead from within.  We are confident that our students will be more successful adults by participating in this leadership model.

The mission of Longbranch Elementary is to prepare our students to achieve beyond expectation, lead with great character, and positively impact our community.  Please join us on this journey.

Important Information about the Solar Eclipse

On Monday August 21st, 2017 we will experience a total solar eclipse, an event that hasn’t occurred over the U.S. mainland since 1979.  A total solar eclipse, which is when the moon completely covers the sun, will occur across 14 states in the continental U.S. along a 70-mile-wide swath of the country.  While Boone County is not located in this area, we will still be able to view the partial solar eclipse.

This event will be an extraordinary educational opportunity for our students.  Many of our schools will have special activities or lessons planned for this day to accompany the event.  While this event is extremely exciting for our students, we must also acknowledge the importance of proper eye safety.  While it should be common sense not to stare directly at the sun with your naked eyes, this advice will be even more important during this event.  The eclipse must be viewed only through proper eclipse glasses.  Schools with planned viewing activities will require students to wear proper solar eclipse glasses.

In order to protect our students’ eyes during this event:

  • Students will not participate in any unstructured outdoor activities, including recess
  • Students will be advised to not look directly at the sun without wearing solar eclipse glasses
  • We will provide additional personnel until 4pm for parents who do not want their children riding the bus during the eclipse.Children who do not ride the bus for that reason will have to be picked up by parents at 4pm.
