Our Lady of the Rosary School: August 14-28, 2022

School's Mission Statement


We at Our Lady of the Rosary along with our parents, exist to serve God through educating and nurturing the whole child. We will be held accountable for our faith and loyalty through consistency, leadership, and service to Christ. Our goal as a community is to academically challenge our students and to instill a sense of leadership, service, humility, and compassion.

Dear Our Lady of the Rosary Families,

Dear Our Lady of the Rosary School Families


I hope that each of you enjoyed your summer breaks and is ready to begin the school year with in-person daily instruction.


As we know COVID-19 remains active in our community, the school will continue to follow the guidelines set forth by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) guidance for TK-12 schools and the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health. While public health orders do not require many of the significant mandates of the past, several public health order protocols will continue to be observed to ensure the spread of COVID-19 remains low and to prevent extended school absences of students and staff. For example, individuals who test positive for COVID-19 will continue to be required to isolate at home for five (5) days and can return to school upon testing negative. Though not required, we strongly suggest that you test your child for COVID-19 prior to resuming school. This will help reduce the disruption of your child’s learning and that of their classmates and teachers.


Masking is strongly recommended for anyone entering indoor portions of school buildings and who has contact with others (students, parents, or other employees). For the most updated LACDPH guidance and information on masking, refer to COVID-19 Masks.


We gratefully welcome back our ever-faithful teachers and staff. Our returning faculty and staff include; Ms. Deleon, Mr. Tiznado, Ms. Salcido, Mrs. Diaz, Mrs. Rubalcava Ms. Lozano, Mrs. Ramirez, Ms. Gordillo, Ms.Stacy, Mrs. Reed, Teresa, Mrs. Sharon Padilla, Mrs. Natally, and myself, Mrs. Rivas.

Ms. Fletes News

Dear school families,


I received the news on Tuesday, that Ms. Fletes will not be returning as the second-grade teacher. She has accepted a teaching position in a local school district. I posted the position on the Archdiocese website and will be interviewing candidates this week. Unfortunately, this year our nation is going through a teacher shortage as a result of the pandemic but I trust in the Lord that He will send us the right teacher to serve our community.


Ms. Fletes is leaving the classroom ready and beginning of the year plans. Ms. Gordillo our Campus Ministry Directory will be subbing in 2nd grade until we hire a teacher.

Arrival/Dismissal Drive Thru

We will continue to follow these drop-off and pick-up procedures.


We've created arrival protocols that will allow us to efficiently screen students and reduce large gatherings. Parents will remain in their cars and must wear a mask.


1. The use of the car line will enable the parents to drive through and drop off/pick up their children at a location where they can be watched as they walk to their classrooms. Drop-offs/pickups are divided into zones to minimize contact. Zone 1: TK-4th Zone 2: 5th -6th


2. Students walk to the classroom and line up apart from each other. Each classroom teacher will take their students' temperature, ask screening questions, provide sanitizer, and then students that are clear will go directly into their classroom.

If a child has a temperature, the teachers will radio the school office, and the child will go directly to the isolation room (Holy Spirit Room).


Zone 1: TK-4th

  • The student must sit on the right side passenger seat for easy access
  • First, drop-off/pick-up of the youngest child on Zone 1 then proceed to Zone 2


Zone 2: 5th -8th

  • The student must sit on the left side passenger seat for easy access.
  • Students being dropped-off -off/pick-up on Zone will not be allowed to walk to Zone 1

Important Back to School Parent Packet

Teachers will pass out the Back to School Parent Packet to students on the first day of school. This packet includes important forms that need to be signed by the student's parent or guardian. Please fill out and sign all forms and submit them to your child's teacher on the following school day. The forms must be turned in by September 2nd to the school's office.

Enrollment through TADS

If you still need to enroll your child(ren) for the next school year please log into your TADS account. If you need assistance please stop by the school's office for help.

Uniform Dress Code

Our Lady of the Rosary School chooses uniforms for their students because:

  • Encourages distinctions of character and personality instead of appearance
  • Places emphasis on learning, not clothing
  • Reduces peer pressure and social stigmas
  • Equalizes economic diversity
  • Allows for cohesive presentation as a group
  • Simple dress code and uniform allows teachers to enforce the code equally
  • Lowers long-term clothing costs
  • Facilitates security by identifying outsiders
  • Enhances school spirit
  • Simplifies dressing and dress code


Our Lady of the Rosary School dress code is intended to instill modesty, good grooming habits, and neatness in appearance. It is to maintain a proper academic environment within the school, and reduce superficial competitiveness so that character rather than appearance can be the focus.

Students are expected to come to school appropriately dressed at all times, with clothing that is clean and in order.


It is the parent’s responsibility to make sure the child can be and is in uniform each day.

  • There should be no holes in, or stains on, the uniform
  • Students wear clothing in proportion to their body size
  • Tattoos, both temporary and permanent, are not allowed
  • Fingernails are clean and trimmed.


In order to facilitate lost-and-found items so they may be returned to their rightful owner, names should be written on all clothing.

E&J Uniform Sale

Get your uniforms at E&J.


You may place an online order through their website at https://eandjuniforms.com/ or stop by at OLR on August 3,4, & 5 from 12:00-6:00 pm.

SignUp Genius for Diagnostic Testing Appointments

This year we will be conducting diagnostic testing for students in TK-8th grade on August 22 - 25. On these two days, teachers will be testing your child on reading and math skills. It is easier and more effective if these tests are done with one on one or in small groups. These tests give information to teachers about your child's academic needs. You will be dropping off your child for this session and parents will be asked to drop off or wait in their cars or outside until testing is completed.


Please sign up with the homeroom teachers only.
