Values Statement

As leaders in our school, we are obligated to be role models in a culturally sensitive and age appropriate way.

Program Overview

Leopard’s Den provides care on the Longfellow campus until 6:00pm every school day, including some Early Dismissal Days. Supervision is provided by Longfellow teachers. The PTA uses proceeds from this program to support and improve our school. Parents may choose from two options; Full Time Care or Drop-In Care.

Brightwheel Leopard’s Den has recently started using Brightwheel, a tool that significantly helps teachers & administrators manage their classrooms, observe & track the children, communicate with you, and share photos and videos.

If you decide to utilize Leopard’s Den for your after school needs, you will receive an invite to join Brightwheel after your student’s registration is received. To create a Brightwheel account all you need to do is create a parent account through either the web or mobile app.  Here is a quick video walking through how to sign-up for a parent account.

Once you create an account with the same email address that the school has on file, you should see your child’s profile. Shortly thereafter you will begin receiving daily updates.
