Update on Cultural Exchange Program at Longfellow Middle School

January 22, 2020

The following message was sent to Longfellow Middle School families:

Good afternoon Longfellow Middle School Families,
In an abundance of caution, we have decided to redesign the cultural exchange program that Longfellow MS was scheduled to begin today, January 22. Although the students will not be visiting Longfellow MS, we will offer to work collaboratively with the travel company to facilitate cultural and educational activities in the DC area so that the students enjoy a positive experience. 
Student and staff health and safety remain our first priority. While health officials believe the risk of illness transmission of the novel Coronavirus from these students is extremely low, we felt it necessary to make this adjustment.
Thank you for your understanding and support.
Carole Kihm, Principal
Longfellow Middle School
