Dear Larsen Community,
Wow we are already at March! This is a busy time at school of learning and preparation for the end of year testing. Our teachers are working very hard to ensure students learn what they need to know in order to be prepared for state testing and to be ready for the following school year. Please make sure your child is logged in to class on time each day (unless they are sick and you have called the office) so they don’t miss any important live synchronous instruction. We are finishing all second trimester assessments as Trimester 2 ends on March 12. Please make sure your student(s) are caught up with their assignments and online platform minutes for RAZ Kids, Khan Academy, and Moby Max. Report cards will be sent home digitally on March 19.
Thanks for all you do to support and help our Roadrunner scholars. We love your kiddos and are completely invested in helping each of them succeed at Larsen!
~~💪MARCH IS WOMAN'S HISTORY MONTH👊~~

Students in kindergarten through grade twelve who are classified as English learners will take the Summative ELPAC, English Language Proficiency Assessments for California, every year until they are reclassified as proficient in English. Students are tested on their skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
You are an important part of your child’s education. To help your child get ready for this English test, you can:
- Read to your child, or have them read to you or a sibling on a regular basis.
- Use pictures and ask your child to tell you what they see, or what is happening.
- Provide your child with opportunities to use language outside of school.
- Talk with your child’s teacher about your child’s listening, speaking, reading and writing skills to help support their progress.
Parents, you are invited, come one come all! All classes will take place from 6:00-7:00p.m.via Zoom courtesy of Ventura County Behavioral Health's Logrando Bienestar(Achieving Wellness) Program.

Important- COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths across our county and the United States are rising. We all must remain vigilant. The changes we have had to make to routines and daily life are extremely hard, but these changes are even more important now and in the future. We must stop the spread of this new and dangerous virus. The more steps you and your family can take to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the safer you will be.
Three Important Ways to Slow the Spread
- Wear a mask to protect yourself and others and stop the spread of COVID-19.
- Stay at least 6 feet (about 2 arm lengths) from others who don’t live with you.
- Avoid crowds. The more people you are in contact with, the more likely you are to be exposed to COVID-19.
What to Do If You're Sick
- Stay home except to get medical care.
- Isolate yourself from other members of your family to prevent spread to them and the people that they may have contact with, like grandparents.
- Even if you don’t feel sick, you can spread COVID-19 to others.
- Get care immediately if you are having emergency warning signs, like trouble breathing, pain or pressure in chest.
