Principal's Message

Hello TIGER families, 
Our District’s COVID-19 testing program is well underway.  Your support of this program is essential and necessary for its success.
As Superintendent Beutner outlined in his October 5, 2020 Letter to the School Community,  parents/guardians have the opportunity to bring their child(ren) to one of the testing centers for an initial baseline test. 
While participation is not mandatory at this time, unless students are coming to campus, it is important that our student(s) are tested. Information gained from these initial tests will provide valuable data for the medical and science experts who are working with the District to develop our plan for a safer return to in-person instruction.
As Superintendent Beutner indicated in his original message, they will begin inviting elementary students, then middle school, then high school.  If you have children in elementary, middle, and highs school parents will be able to register and bring all their children for testing at the same time.
We want this experience to be a positive one for our community and adherence to the invitation schedule will ensure sufficient system capacity to accommodate demand.  A three-week window of appointments will be available and parents may select any site and time that is available when they use the online appointment site. 
Please schedule an appointment beginning on October 9th for your child at
You will need your child’s student ID number to schedule an appointment. You may obtain your child’s student ID number by accessing the Parent Portal at

or by calling our LAUSD hotline at 213-443-1300.
Once you’ve made the appointment, you will receive a confirmation email with details. Please be prepared to show the email on your phone or print out the confirmation and bring it with you to the appointment.
Thank you for your participation on this important program.

Principal Miller
Be Safe and Be Well,
Carla Miller
