Measure E Update:
Neighbors, parents, and other members of the Robinson school community are invited to a briefing on the existing Measure E new heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) project for Jackie Robinson K-8 Academy. Measure E improvements for HVAC and related work for Robinson Academy is scheduled to start in the summer of 2021.
Additional related work includes accessibility improvements, ceiling/lighting renovations, fire alarm upgrade, and utility infrastructure upgrades. This is possible due to voters’ approval November 2016 of the $1.5 billion school bond initiative, known as Measure E.
To learn more about how this project will affect your neighborhood and how we plan to minimize inconveniences related to parking, traffic and noise, tune in for this upcoming information session available on the LBUSD YouTube Channel beginning Friday, October 30th at LBschools.net/YouTube then go to Playlists and select Measure E.

High School Choice Exploration Phase
Summary of Meal Service Changes, Effective October 19, 2020
To improve meal services and support the needs of families in our community and our employees, Nutrition Services will make the following changes in meal distribution, effective October 19, 2020:
1. Grab and Go meals for two days at each pick-up – Students and parents/guardians may pick up two days’ worth of meals on alternate days instead of making the daily trips.
- Monday’s pick-up includes meals for Monday and Tuesday.
- Wednesday’s pick up is for Wednesday and Thursday.
- Friday and Saturday’s meals are available for pick-up on Friday.
This change is in support of social distancing and minimizes the exposure of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) for families and our frontline employees.
2. Four meal types will be available for each day: breakfast, lunch, snack, and supper at all service locations – Each recipient will receive eight meals as a unit.
3. Universal meal pick up period from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. – This change streamlines the meal pick up period for all service locations regardless of grade levels and takes the guesswork out of parents on the meal pick up time, especially for parents with school age children in multiple grade levels.
4. Offer versus Serve for milk – This change allows recipients to decline milk or take only the quantity of milk that they desire to reduce waste.
Parents/guardians picking up meals without children present or picking up additional meals for children who stay at home must present documentation for verification. Nutrition Services Branch employees are expected to ask for the acceptable documents daily even if the parents/guardians have been visiting the same location. The acceptable documents include but are not limited to the following.
a. LBUSD student ID
b. Any student ID issued by any agencies
c. Benefit issuance letter showing children are part of the adult’s household:
§ Meal Eligibility Letter from LBUSD or any districts
§ Benefit issuance document from Women, Infants, and Children (WIC)
d. Tax Returns
e. Birth Certificate
f. Any official documents showing children are part of the adult’s household
Any questions regarding meal services should be directed to Nutrition Services Branch at 562-427-7923. Thank you.
