Superintendent of Longmeadow Public Schools Marie Doyle and Longmeadow High School Principal Lawrence Berte are pleased to invite Longmeadow residents to attend the first public tours of the new, state-of-the-art facility. The tours are to be held on Thursday, March 21 at 5:30 p.m. and Saturday, March 23 at 10:00 a.m. Students will be leading the tours through the academic wing, gym and locker room facilities, natatorium, media center and cafeteria, among other areas of the new school. Students have been attending classes in the new facility since Tuesday, February 26, when there was a brief ceremony to commemorate the opening and welcome students into their new home.

The tours are intended to demonstrate Superintendent Doyle's commitment to ensure that the new high school becomes a showcase facility for the community. "We look forward to showing it off!", said Superintendent Doyle. "We want residents to experience what a valuable resource the new high school will be. It is also important that we convey again how appreciative we are of the community's investment in the future of our students."

Residents interested in attending one of the tours are asked to meet in the main lobby area of the new building at the appointed time. There is no need to RSVP in order to attend one of the tours. Residents should note that on-site parking is limited to the student lot, which is accessed from Bliss Road. Principal Berte requests that tour goers looking for additional parking be respectful of residential neighbors on Grassy Gutter Road, Willet Drive, Terry Drive and Wilkin Drive.
