I hope that you and your family had a joyous holiday season. I am looking forward to seeing our students in virtual classes this week….and I can’t wait to be back in person!
The first day of the new semester is Monday, January 11, 2021. This is a PUPIL FREE DAY. This day is to provide our teachers time for planning and preparation. Classes will begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday, January 12th, and will continue in an online format. In addition, because of this change in the calendar, the last day of instruction for the school year will be Friday, June 11th not June 10th.
Due to the current level of COVID-19 in the communities our school facilities will continue to remain closed until further notice. Our staff will continue to work from home. If you have any questions please contact us at
If your family is in need of support with mental health, immunizations, health insurance, food and housing, enrollment, and more you can contact the help desk at 213-241-3840. The help desk is open 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday.
The District continues to work through all the details on how to provide the best possible education when students are able to return to campus. To stay up on the latest developments be sure to watch Superintendent Austin Beutner’s weekly update every Monday. The update airs at 8 am and again at 6 pm on KLCS and can be found on the LAUSD website.
An important reminder: The district’s School Experience Survey began on Monday, October 26, for all parents and staff, and students in Grades 4-12. The survey deadline has been extended to February 5 to allow more time for everyone’s voice to be heard. The survey can be completed on line by going to http://achieve.lausd.net/schoolexperiencesurvey and clicking the parent survey button near the top of the page.
Lastly, here’s to remembering the many lessons we learned in 2020-some being; flexibility, team work is dream work, importance of preparing for the unexpected, accepting change, understanding that nothing is constant, and moving into 2021 with a sense of deep gratitude for everyone in our community.
