Coffee with the Principal families

A big Thank You to all of the families that joined us this past week for "Coffee with the Principal". We appreciate all of your input, feedback and would love to continue to work with you as a team.

Remember - we all have the same goal, to help students succeed and working together, makes our goal achievable.


Attendance Counts

All persons under 18 years of age who have not graduated from high school are required by state law to attend school.

Students are expected to attend each of their scheduled classes promptly and regularly. Regular attendance is one of the greatest contributing factors to success in school. Absences should be avoided whenever possible.

Please help us, help your student achieve academic excellence by making sure they are in school daily.

When Absent...

Make sure to bring in a note for your student - the note can be either handwritten or emailed to either to

Ms. Rubio at yanellyr@lapromisefund.org or Ms. Avalos at gabriela@lapromisefund.org

Providing a note allows our office staff to mark the absence as "Excused" and thus allows teachers to provide students with an extension on any missing work.

Uniform Policy

Big picture

Students who are not in uniform will…

  • Lose PBIS points

  • Serve nutrition and lunch detention that day

  • Receive a parent phone call home, asking to be brought a change of clothes

If you need to purchase additional uniforms, reach out to Faith Uniforms at (323)432-2388.


Food cannot be delivered to students during the school day by food delivery establishments, including but not limited to Uber Eats, Door Dash or GrubHub. Please remember that only parents and immediate family members in the computer system can deliver food to you during the school day. This is to better ensure the security of the school as well as to minimize disruptions to the school day. Food delivered to students by outside delivery companies will be confiscated and given to students at the end of the day, as they head home. If a student opens an outside door to allow an outside food delivery, or accepts food through the gate, they will face disciplinary consequences as that creates a security risk.

Consequences for ordering food will include...

  • 1 week of nutrition and lunch detention
  • A parent conference
  • Confiscation of the food order, which will only be provided to the students guardian after school

If you have any questions or concerns - please feel free to contact the office directly.

School Bus Behavior

We have recently been informed by our bus company that some Westbrook students have been damaging bus seats through graffiti. We are asking all families to talk to their student - as this behavior is illegal and if a student is caught, parents will be responsible for graffiti removal and will loose the daily bus privilege.

Remember the expectation is that students...

  • Remain seated the entire time that the bus is in motion
  • Noice level should be at a minimum - since it is important for them to hear any instructions that the bus driver sees fit to deliver
  • Nothing should be thrown in or out of the bus
  • There is no eating on the bus
  • Destroying property (including tagging) is not only against the law but agains the bus rules

Lastly, please remember that riding the school bus is a privilege that is contingent upon the continuous observance of bus rules and established regulations.
