Ms. Karrie Long

Welcome Espy Families! The opportunity to serve as the principal of Espy Elementary is a great privilege that I look forward to each day. Together with the families and staff at Espy, I know that we will help our children achieve more than they think is possible. 

An important part of each day at Espy is our implementation of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS). PBIS is behavior support system for students who are struggling as well as an acknowledgment opportunity for students when they are having behavior successes. As you enter each room and walk the halls of Espy, you will notice signs and banners detailing how to “Be Safe, Be Responsible, and Be Respectful” in each location. These common expectations are explicitly taught and retaught so that everyone in the school has the same clear expectations for behavior. PBIS allows us to have a united approach in supporting student behaviors for success.


Thank you for taking the time to visit our site and uniting with us for a wonderful year!
