    School Safety Zone

    Providing your child with a safe environment is one of the top priorities of the LAUSD. This is one of reasons we have a closed school campus during school hours. Please return your child's emergency card filled out thoroughly and accurately. Only people identified on the emergency cards are permitted to pick up students. Anyone checking out students from the school, will be required to present a valid ID. Children are to go to the office to wait or meet a sibling if they are not picked up by 2:35.

    No supervision provided before 7:15am, please do not drop-off students before 7:15,

    LAUSD Food & Water Policy @ School:

       Parents love to contribute to their child's classroom celebrations, especially during the holidays. However, please keep in mind that LAUSD policy does NOT allow home cooked items, nor hot liquids at school. We need to protect students who may have good allergies.
       Please check with your child's teacher before bringing "goodies" to share with their classmates. Classrooms are allowed to have celebrations, but we recommend that students' birthdays be recognized during their recess or lunch breaks or the last ten minutes of school.
    Thank you!

    A BIG thank you to Muralist Rio Diaz who painted these beautiful murals which can be seen in the South playground. Ms. Diaz was commissioned by Principal Carrandi, and funded through fundraising activities. This is phase two, handball courts.

    Dear Family,
    I hope this finds you and your family safe and well. It has been an extraordinary year since COVID-19 forced the closure of school classrooms last March. Since then we have worked to provide the best possible education for students in the safest way possible. The good news is that levels of the virus continue to decrease, more people are being vaccinated and health authorities tell us conditions should continue to improve. With this in mind, I am pleased to share some exciting news with you.
    When the new school year starts this August, all schools will offer full day in-person instruction to all students, 5 days a week -- while maintaining the highest standard of safety of any school district in the country. Students will also be able to participate in learning and enrichment after school until 6:00 pm. Families who wish their child to continue learning from home will still have the option to participate in an online program.
    While we look forward to a “regular” school day, this cannot be a return “back to normal” -- rather, we want to provide students with an even better education when the new school year starts. Since this crisis began, we have advocated for what we have called a Marshall Plan for schools – to make sure schools have adequate funding to help the students and families they serve. Thanks to actions at both the state and federal levels, this has become a reality. Schools in Los Angeles Unified will have record amounts of funding for each of the next several school years.
    The additional funds will allow schools to add reading and math teachers in elementary schools to help students build a foundation in literacy, math and critical-thinking skills. Secondary schools can add teachers to provide more individualized instruction and reduce class sizes. Children will benefit from additional mental health services in schools while students with learning differences and disabilities will receive more direct support. Schools will be cleaner and safer with an increase in custodial staff. For the first time in decades, there is sufficient funding to do all of this.
    Town halls are being held across the Los Angeles area to provide families with more information and answer questions. We encourage you to participate in one in your local community.
    We look forward to welcoming back all students in August. Thank you for your continued patience and support.
    Superintendent Austin Beutner
