Week Sixteen [A Week]

Dear Families, Students, Staff and Teachers,

Last week was a success and I'm looking forward to seeing all our Hybrid students return. I also hope our Online students have adjusted to the earlier Advisory.

In additional to the excitement of reopening, last week we were honored as a California Distinguished School by the California Department of Education! We are 1 of only 29 schools in LAUSD to receive this recognition in 2021.

Important news, announcements and opportunities are below!
