Mr. Elwin Longnion

I am honored to be the Director of Transportation for FUSD. This is my sixth year with FUSD. I started as the Dean of Students/Athletic Director at Copper Basin and Skyline Ranch K-8's. Prior to being promoted to Director I was the Assistant Principal/Athletic Director at Anthem K-8.

As the Director of Transportation I am responsible for safely transporting over 5000 students to and from school daily. Last year our buses and district vehicles traveled over 800,000 miles transporting our student population. FUSD is growing fast and we are excited to continue our excellent safety rating transporting our students.

I am married with four children, two grandchildren and three fur babies: Frito & Kula (Chihuahuas) and Moose (French Bulldog). We love to camp, kayak, hike, travel and spend time with family.

I am pleased to be the Supervisor for the Florence Bus Barn. I have been with FUSD Transportation Department for 14 years. I have grown a lot since my first day here; I’ve held various positions with transportation prior to being selected as supervisor. I believe in our vision and core values.

I supervise twenty-four daily routes and thirty-five drivers including mechanics and office staff.  Our drivers support Florence High, Florence K-8, Anthem K-8 and Magma Ranch K-8 along with Mountain Vista Academy.
