Principal's Message

Hello Tigers!!
Students and staff were very excited to welcome our students back to school. It was wonderful to hear the sounds of students back on campus.  Even the squirrels came out of hiding to join in the fun.  I would like to thank our Decorating Committee for the yard welcome signs and balloons and for making the reopening of school that much more special for our students.  Also, thank you parents for your unwavering PATIENCE at the arrival gates as we worked through the glitches of scanning.
PLEASE NOTE: Tomorrow, Monday, April 26 is a shorten day and all grade levels arrive and are dismissed at the same time. (This applies to every Monday) If your child participates in the Boys and Girls Club in the morning your child DOES NOT return to childcare at the end of their instructional day at 2:00pm.
SIBLINGS: If you have more than one child students may enter through the same gate on Monday’s.  Have your children enter through the gate of the younger sibling.  (Gate location based on class location.)
*If you have more than one child and are having difficulty on the other days getting your child to their arrival gate please reach out to me ( so we can make alternate arrangements and staff at the gate can be notified.
REQUEST FOR PROGRAM CHANGE: Parents have the opportunity to request a change of program selection every two weeks.  Email me directly at  with your request. FRIDAY, APRIL 30  we will be making changes.  
*Please note: Changes are based on the availability of space.
BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB (Beyond the Bell): The Boys and Girls Club continues to organize cohorts for students requiring childcare. Priority is given to parents that indicated on the program selection form “supervised care”. If you did not mark this option you can still complete an application and families will be contacted off the waitlist beginning this week. Students in the a.m cohort of childcare enter through the gate by the front office.  If you need to pick up your child early please go to the office.
GRAB AND GO MEALS: Every student gets a “Grab and Go Meal” at the end of the day and on Friday’s students get two additional meals for the weekend to take home .  In order to have an accurate count and to avoid throwing out excess food if you do not want your child taking a “Grab and Go Meal/s” please inform the teacher.
The COVID Mobile Testing Team (Infinity Healthcare) will be deployed to each school site within our Local District to test students and staff.  I will notify parents once we receive a date. The Districts goal is for the Mobile Testing Teams to be able to provide consistent weekly testing at all school sites.
Parents who did their baseline test through an outside provider (e.g., Kaiser) DO HAVE TO come in and give consent for the initial on-campus test by Infiniti. The purpose of the waiver/consent form is so parents can waive/consent their right to be present when their child is tested by Infinity Healthcare. Students tested at an LAUSD testing site are fine for on-campus testing without parent present.  
Again, thank you to everyone for helping to make our first week successful. If you have any questions please feel free to call us at 818-784-8283.
Be Safe and Be Well,
Carla Miller
