Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Welcome to Long Hill Elementary School Website. Our hope is that you find our website to be user-friendly, and after you visit, you will have a good idea of all we have to offer. Long Hill Elementary School serves students in grades K-4. The LHS staff, parents, and students work together to create an exciting and meaningful environment that provides all students with a wealth of educational experiences. Our students encounter the enthusiasm of learning in an environment that encourages critical thinking skills, problem solving, and the ability to access information toward acquiring the technological skills for the 21st century. We strive to create the context of "lifelong learning" through the use of computers, modern research capability, and interactive media.

Our goal is to provide a safe and orderly school climate that promotes positive self-esteem, student commitment towards citizenship, individual improvement, and responsibility for personal behavior.  LHS has a strong foundation in Positive Behavior Interventions and Support (PBIS), which guides our approach to teaching positive behaviors and celebrating the accomplishments of our students. Our monthly school-wide assemblies recognize those students who are being safe, responsible, and respectful.

We value the cultural diversity that exists in our school by celebrating the uniqueness of each individual student and staff member. We teach our students that by respecting everyone, we become a stronger community.

One of the most critical pieces to student success is the connection between home and school. I encourage all of you to be actively engaged with your child's learning. Our PTO is a wonderful organization that is always looking for more members and volunteers. We do believe that "It takes a village to raise a child", so we welcome your involvement. We do hope that our website will assist in the endeavor. As always, if you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email or call the main office at (203) 929-4077.

Sincerely,

Kristen Santilli

LHS Principal
