 We stand in solidarity with the School District of Philadelphia to put an end to racial injustice and inequity in education through our level of influence here at Longstreth School. We will do so by participating in school district initiatives, implementing equitable systems and procedures within the school, training our teachers, having tough conversations when needed and making sure our scholars have a well rounded educational experience grounded in the teaching of our history beyond the textbook.


Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome to School Year 2020-2021!! We are excited to begin this school year. Longstreth School has developed a comprehensive Digital Learning Academy. Your scholars will be engaged in rigorous instruction, social and emotional learning and school fun activities. We will also have activities for our parents and have developed a Parent Wellness Plan to support you through this time. It is important that every parent sign up for Class Dojo. Class Dojo will keep you informed and in touch with your scholar’s teachers. Please check this site periodically and get connected with us through our social media pages below to stay updated on all new information! We will have a great year on purpose! We are LIONS We R.O.A.R.!!

Uniform & Supply Expectations

Parents we are not requiring a black bottom for SY20-21. We are partnering our families to help lower costs for preparing for school. In doing so, we don’t want our families to have to spend money purchasing black uniform pants. Instead we are asking families to work with their scholars to create an At Home Learning Space. Please take the time to read the handouts provided on this website. While it is not mandatory by the School District for scholars to wear uniforms, we are committed at Longstreth to maintain consistency of routines and procedures and to maintain healthy habits. It is important for scholars to distinguish themselves as scholars attending school by being in a uniform top. This will help them feel connected.  Scholars will earn Dojo points and have other forms of recognition for rising to this challenge. 


~ Scholars in grades K-5 should be in a grey polo shirt or black or grey plain T-shirt during digital learning.
~ Scholars in grades 6-8 should be in a burgundy polo shirt or black or grey plain T-shirt during remote/digital learning. {Scholars in 6th grade can wear their gray shirts from last year.}
~ Scholars in grades K-8 should be in a uniform polo top (grey K-5 and burgundy 6-8) and regular bottom (NO ripped or  torn jeans) during in school learning.


Digital Learning

~Scholars may not need all the supplies on the list during digital learning, but most supplies are needed for at home learning.
~Scholars may need additional supplies like a pencil sharpener because they will not be in the building where they would normally have access to classroom supplies.
