Our Lady of the Rosary School: August 15, 2021

School's Mission Statement


We at Our Lady of the Rosary in partnership with the 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.

Welcome to Our Lady of the Rosary School

Important Back to School Parent Packet

Teachers will pass out the Back to School Parent Packet to all school families during the diagnostic testing appointments on August 16 & 17. This packet includes important forms that need to be signed by the student's parent or guardian. Please fill out and sign the form while you wait for your child and submit it to your child's teacher the same day or by August 27.

Lunch Program by Paramount School District for 2021-22

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, 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 in all clothing.

School Supply Lists

The following attachments are the school supplies lists by grade levels; Preschool-2nd, 3rd-5th, and 6th -8th.

Teachers will be going over with students how the supplies will be used at school and at home. We highly recommend that you also have school supplies at home.

8:00-8:20 Arrival (Parent Drive Thru Drop off on Zone 1: TK-4th Zone 2: 5th -6th)

8:20-8:25 Students walk to their classrooms and the teacher will do health screening.

8:25 Gates are Closed

8:30 Tardy, Assembly Begins in the Hall, Student enter through the school's office

Arrival/Dismissal Drive Thru

We will continue to follow these protocols until Covid cases go down again. Morning assemblies will be conducted online so students will be watching them in their classroom.


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 drop-off/pick-up on Zone will not be allowed to walk to Zone 1

Covid19 News from August 2, 2021

To maintain a safe in-person learning environment, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) released updated guidance for TK-12 schools reflecting recent revisions from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). OLR will be following these guidelines and the guidelines set forth by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. This includes the wearing of masks indoors for all individuals (regardless of vaccination status), screening testing, frequent hand washing, staying home when sick or getting tested, indoor ventilation contact tracing in combination with quarantine and isolation, and cleaning and disinfection are also important layers of prevention to keep schools safe. The school will continue to keep our distance learning plans if there to be another communal surge of Covid19.
