Lindell Elementary School

Early Pick Up Procedures


We realize that on occasion, personal circumstances may require that you pick your child up from school before the normal dismissal time.  However, there should be a valid, necessary reason for early pick up. In such instances, the procedures listed below must be followed. These procedures may appear cumbersome, but are designed to ensure the safety of all our children.

1. It is most important that your contact information is up to date – all telephone numbers and emergency contacts.  As well, if you are picking up your child early, a note must be sent to the teacher.  If there is an emergency, a telephone call must be made to the Main Office.

2. When entering the building, the parent/guardian must sign in with the Security Guard at the front door and present a photo I.D. The student will be called down and sent to the Security Guard.

3. Once dismissal has started, no child will be called down to leave early and no child is to be taken from  teachers or off a bus line.

Darryl McDaniels Speaking to Students thumbnail246559

Long Beach students at Lindell Elementary School recently attended a special assembly featuring former hip-hop pioneer Darryl McDaniels of the group Run D.M.C.

He wrote the children’s book “Darryl’s Dream.” The book focuses on finding confidence, facing bullies, celebrating yourself, and the talent and dreams within yourself.

McDaniels read aloud “Darryl’s Dream” to students and staff and shared how he was a person who used to get teased for wearing glasses. He was a comic book fan and a lover of rice pudding. He was not famous, he was a friend, a person who worked hard and followed his dreams to success and encouraged them to do the same.

He stressed to the Lindell students that the things that make them different are the things that make them powerful and that it was important to do your best in school and get an education so you can follow your dreams.

Kindergarteners at Lindell Elementary in Long Beach have been learning about ecosystems in science and the importance of taking care of our Earth. The kindergarten teachers collaborated with the music teachers who put together an Earth Day performance. Highlights of the performance included songs about the sun and Earth Day decorations.

As a culminating activity, students were given a recycling “at home” project to complete with their family members. Their finished projects were showcased at the school and presented as a “Museum Walk” after the Earth Day performance.
