Attendance & Health Offices
ALL VISITORS ARE REQUIRED TO SIGN IN AT THE FRONT DESK AND ARE REQUIRED TO REPORT TO A DESIGNATED OFFICE.
KEEP US INFORMED! Information on every student is kept on file in the Attendance Office to be used by school personnel to locate parents in case of an emergency. For your child’s safety, you are required to notify the school of any change of address, changes to home, work and cell telephone numbers. If you move to another school enrollment area and wish to have your child continue at this school for the remainder of the term, he/she may be eligible to do so. Please check in with the office to obtain detailed District regulations regarding intra- and inter-district permit requirements. If it is discovered that you have failed to report a change of address to another school attendance area, your child will not be eligible for a permit to continue at this school.
Please keep emergency cards updated! Students are released only to individuals listed on emergency card. You are required to submit a new emergency card any times information changes.
IMPORTANT REMINDER: ALL PARENTS / GUARDIANS REQUIRE PHOTO I.D. TO CHECK YOUR CHILD OUT FOR THE DAY.
Dropping off items for students: You are welcome to drop anything off but we WILL NOT disrupt classroom time to deliver items or call out students to pick up items. Make effort to contact your child. Students have been directed to check regularly for items on these racks if they have forgotten anything at home or in their car, or if a lunch is being dropped off for them. The office is not responsible for items left behind.
If a student is not feeling well during school hours they can visit the Health Office. Students can either rest for a few minutes or may be sent home by the Health Clerk. If a student demonstrates any symptoms of a fever, diarrhea, pink eye, lice, or vomiting, a parent will be notified. The Health Office contact number is 323-373-2727.
If a student needs to take medication during school hours, whether prescription or over-the-counter, parents must complete the ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATION DURING SCHOOL HOURS form. The form is available in the Health Office. All medication must be brought to the Health Office in its original container. If the student is authorized to carry an emergency medication on their person, such as an inhaler or EpiPen, the physician and parent must indicate this permission on the form.
If your student sustains an injury that might be aggravated by participating in Physical Education, a parent may write a note excusing their child for up to one week. In order to be excused for a longer period of time, we require a note from a California licensed physician (MD or DO) stating the necessity for excusing Physical Education and the end date of the exclusion. Physical Education is a state mandated requirement with obligatory instructional minutes, so we are unable to excuse a child from participation with only parent request.
Students returning to school with crutches, casts, or orthopedic devices require a written release from the attending physician. The form should also indicate any limitations for PE.
