Counseling Support:

If your student receives counseling support from Ms. Veronica or Ms. Raquel, they will continue to receive services through phone calls. Ms. Veronica will reach out to you to coordinate.


If your child has a medication at school that needs to be picked up, please call or text Bri at (818)300-5025. She will open the campuses on Monday, March 16 by medication pick-up appointment only.

Learning From Home

It is vitally important to us that we partner with you so that your child’s learning can continue at home in a way that is as similar to their school instruction as possible. Please find your child’s daily learning plans and online learning options in the google doc below.
