With the 4th of July holiday fast approaching, the Long Beach Fire and Police Departments would like to remind residents, visitors, and staff that all fireworks, including those marked “Safe and Sane,” are ILLEGAL in the City of Long Beach. 

The Fire and Police Departments will be out in force the days leading up to and on July 4th to ensure compliance of the Long Beach City Ordinance that bans fireworks. Although both Departments seek voluntary compliance to ensure public safety, this duty often requires strict enforcement of all laws through arrests and citations. Anyone cited or arrested for fireworks violations may be faced with a $1,000 fine, sentenced to jail for six months, or both. The fines and penalties may increase depending on the fireworks’ classification. 

Fireworks may be voluntarily disposed at collection bins located at:

  • All fire stations
  • Lifeguard Headquarters 2100 E. Ocean Boulevard, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Any police station

For more information, alerts, advisories, and emergency news please visit www.longbeach.gov/fire, "Like" us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram, or contact LBFD Community Services at (562) 570-2525. 

If you See Something, Say Something! Call Long Beach Police Dispatch at (562) 435-6711 or 9-1-1 if you observe dangerous or illegal activities.

 

Together, we can enjoy a safe holiday!

State law requires all public schools to create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC). The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about your child's school, which includes:

  • School Description and Mission
  • School Programs and Instructional Materials
  • Opportunities for Parent Involvement
  • Test Results
  • Safety Plan
  • Facilities

We invite you to view the School Accountability Report Card (SARC) for your child's school.  You can find your school's SARC here.

From the Principal: Wishes for a Wonderful Summer

Dear Current and Future Florence Bixby Elementary School Families,

 

This year has been a tremendous success, thanks in large part to the broad support our school enjoys from our families, community and staff members.  Thank you for having played an integral role in OUR Journey to Success and OUR Personal Best!  Together, we have continued to provide students with a world-class education.  Together, we have continued to maintain a high level of safety and security, while still ensuring that our campus is a warm and nurturing place for all students to learn.  Together, we have made remarkable, significant gains in reading, writing and math, according to our preliminary results from state testing (more details on this when we return in the fall:).

 

For now, I wish you and your family a summer filled with wellness, happiness, and infinite sun-drenched summer memories that will last a lifetime!

 

With continued gratitude,

--Sam Platis, Proud Principal, Florence Bixby Elementary School

 

p.s.  We will see you back at Florence Bixby Elementary on the first day of school on Wednesday, August 29th!

This day has been given to me, fresh and new.
I can learn from it, or throw it away.

This day will be used, not lost.
