  • PLAY IT SAFE! - Wear Facial Protection

    Posted by Michele Bowers on 4/6/2020 1:35:00 PM

    The City of Lancaster has passed a city ordinance requiring all individuals to wear facial protection while in public.  This safety measure not only aides in protecting you, but equally important, wearing facial protection also protects the people that you come in contact with.  Facial protection may include a health facial mask or one made of cloth.   We are asked to not use the N95 masks so that they may be reserved for medical providers and first responders.  Let's all continue to do our part. Wash hands frequently.  Cover your cough. Wear facial protection.   STAY SAFE!

  • School Closure Extended Through End of School Year

    Posted by Michele Bowers on 4/2/2020 5:30:00 PM

    Student, staff and family safety is our number one priority. State health officials have made it clear that the safest place to be during the COVID-19 pandemic is home. With that in mind, our campuses will remain physically closed for the remainder of the school year. Our decision aligns with the recommendation from Governor Newsom, State Superintendent of Education Tony Thurmond, and Los Angeles County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Debra Duardo that schools remain physically closed for the rest of the academic year. Importantly, while campuses are closed, school will be in session April 6 through June 4 and instruction will continue via a remote learning platform.  For additional information and resources, please check out "Remote Learning" on our webpage.

  • The Best Defense is a Good Offense!

    Posted by Michele Bowers on 3/27/2020 12:00:00 PM

    Understanding the very real fears and concerns surrounding COVID-19, it is clear that the best defense to protect yourself and your family is a “GREAT OFFENSE.”   Each of us can do our part to stop the spread – BE PROACTIVE! Remember these important recommendations from the CDC to stay safe and healthy:

    • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
    • Practice social distancing – avoid close contact with people.
    • Cover your cough with a tissue then throw the tissue in the trash.
    • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Safety, Health, and Well-Being

    Posted by Michele Bowers on 3/26/2020 4:45:00 PM

    The safety, health, and well-being of everyone in our community is a top priority for us. It has not been easy adjusting to the rapid changes that have occurred in the last two weeks. The fast growing number of individuals and families impacted by COVID-19, however, is a stark reminder of how serious this situation really is. For that reason, it is critically important that we all do our part. I recognize that school closures and the Safer-At-Home Public Health Order have brought many challenges for us all. Let’s put health and safety first – for our children, for ourselves, and for our community.  Thank you.
