Dear Parents,

We hope everyone had a great Spring Break! As a reminder, if your child is attending in person, be sure to remind them to have their student ID card each day. And also remember to complete the CrisisGo health screening. You should now receive it earlier to in box of your main email. Students DO NOT need a screen shot. They simply need their student ID.

Please enjoy today's La Mesa Not-so Live broadcast.

CrisisGo Safety iPass DAILY Health Check

All parents will receive a daily email from Crisis Go at 6am. This must be filled out any day your child is coming to campus. It is really important that parents get in the habit of filling out this health certification each morning. Not having this complete will slow them down at the gate each morning. They must also remember their ID card each day.
