"Safe Routes" Community

posted Sept. 12, 2017

The Longmeadow Police Department would like to remind parents who have children that walk or ride their bicycles to our elementary and middle schools that Longmeadow is a “Safe Routes” Community. There are twenty three crossing guards strategically positioned at high traffic intersections and crosswalks to ensure your children arrive to school safely and return home safely. We encourage parents to remind their children to cross where there is a crossing guard, to heed the instructions of the crossing guard, and for those who ride their bicycles, wear a helmet. (Required by law 16 and under must wear a helmet)

Last school year, Blueberry Hill School was awarded the “Gold Level Award” for their part in the Massachusetts Safe Routes School Program (SRTS). The Longmeadow Police Department has been working with SRTS and the Principals from each Longmeadow elementary and middle schools to make all the elementary and middle schools a “Gold Level Award” winner.

On October 4th, 2017, the Longmeadow will be participating in International Walk to School Day (iWalk). Members of the Longmeadow Police Department will be walking with elementary school children from Center School, Blueberry Hill School, and Wolf Swamp Road School. This nationwide event allows the Longmeadow Police Department to build a relationship with the children with the focus on demonstrating the importance of pedestrian and bicycle safety.

Principal for Blueberry Hill School Announcement

posted Jun 7, 2017

Dr. Marty O’Shea, Superintendent of the Longmeadow Public Schools, is pleased to announce that Ms. Amy Bostian, the Principal at Thornton W. Burgess Middle School in Hampden, MA, has accepted the position of Principal of Blueberry Hill Elementary School, in Longmeadow. Ms. Bostian will succeed Principal Marie Pratt, who is scheduled to retire at the conclusion of the school year.

The screening process was thorough, lasting many weeks and involving Blueberry Hill parents, teachers, and staff. We had a deep applicant pool with many experienced, qualified educators, but Ms. Bostian rose to the top after a series of interviews and site visits. Her extensive experience as a school instructional leader, her passion for children and her proven ability to lead a collaborative, spirited school were determining factors in the final decision.

Ms. Bostian is an experienced educator who has served as a teacher and educational leader for over 17 years, mostly as a regular and special education teacher at the elementary level.

Ms. Bostian earned a Masters Degree in Learning Disabilities Studies from Teachers College, Columbia University. Her undergraduate degree, a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education, is from Worcester State University.

Dr. O’Shea looks forward to introducing Ms. Bostian to the community. The Longmeadow Public Schools warmly welcomes her to the Blueberry Hill family. Dr. O’Shea is confident she will build on the Blueberry Hill’s foundation of educational excellence!
