Fall 2017 School Calendar Survey
Today every LAUSD employee and the oldest child for every household (TK-12) will receive a School Calendar Survey. LAUSD is asking for our opinion as to what school calendar(s) we would like to see for elementary, middle, and high school students. The survey asks us if we would like for school to start in August, or after Labor Day. How many days off would you like for Thanksgiving? How many weeks off for the winter break? Should high school students start school after 8:30 a.m.? Should high school students have a different calendar than elementary and middle school students (presumably to meet college summer school enrollment dates)? Please answer this survey in paper or on line by 9/28! We will all have to live with whatever is decided for many, many years to come! We are collecting the paper surveys in the Main Office. Unfortunately, no surveys will be processed after 9/29.
Fall Picture Day, 10/4
This week, please look for your child’s order form for fall portraits. The fall portrait is the school’s official portrait of your child. This portrait is uploaded into the student information system, used to make library ID cards, student ID cards, and is used on your child’s cumulative folder (permanent record). As such, this portrait is taken in school uniforms. Please make sure you child is in his/her cleanest navy blue or light blue polo (no white!) for the portrait. Students forgetting to wear their school uniform will be given a loaner to wear for the portrait. You may accessorize, as you like. This year, the class picture will be a composite of all the portraits so that no absent students are left out. In the spring we offer spring portrait day as a free dress opportunity for you to choose any dress style that you prefer for your child’s optional spring portrait.
If you haven’t already done so, please submit your annual meal application for all of the children in your family. If your child has been eating for free or for 40 cents, and you have NOT submitted your application this year, you will be charged full price ($3.00) beginning 9/28.
