Dear Harborfields’ Community,

It is with deep regret to inform you of the loss of Pamela Long (Ello), who unexpectedly passed away earlier today. Ms. Long was a technology teacher at Oldfield Middle School. She was a long-time community resident. She began her teaching career at Oldfield Middle School twenty-two years ago.

The Harborfields Board of Education and administration extend our prayers and deepest condolences to her family and friends during this difficult time. Ms. Long was a happy and positive woman, loved by all, and she will be deeply missed. She was expected to retire at the end of this school year.

Members of the district’s crisis management team will be available to students and staff on Monday when they return from winter recess, to offer support and counseling, as needed.

We are extremely saddened by this news and ask that members of the media respect the privacy of our students and staff, as we mourn the loss of a beloved teacher, colleague and friend.
