 Facilites Update
Mersedeh Emrani
Over Spring Break, the Larchmont facilities team helped with some very exciting facility improvements on campus.
>  We have a brand new (long awaited) intercom/buzzer system for our back carpool gate.  Parents using the back gate for pick up during after school time will now be able to use the buzzer as opposed to calling our after school staff.  The video monitoring system offers us more security, of course, but this will also allow our after school staff to focus only on students as opposed to having to walk over to the gate multiple times per day for pick ups.

>  We also have a new shade for our carpool benches!  As some of you may remember, the old one blew away due to heavy winds.  We explored many options, but all of them would have been susceptible to the winds the Fairfax campus is often exposed to.  We're hopeful our new sunshades will have solved the problem, and that the kids will enjoy the shade!

LCS Party Book

Remember to check out the 2016 LCS Party Book website.  Sign up for any number of exciting, delicious, adventurous and/or educational parties and events to raise money for our school.

100% of the proceeds go to LCS but you get all the fun!  From an adults-only wine-tasting and poker tournament to family ice-skating to kids-only hip-hop and learning to ride a bike, there's something for everyone! Open to folks outside the LCS community as well, so please tell your friends and extended family and share the link!!  

CAASPP Test (California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress) -
3rd grade and up ONLY
The testing schedule for 3rd grade students taking the CAASPP has now been finalized.

Third graders will be taking the state mandated assessment from April 18 - April 29th.

Please ensure that your child arrives on time every day during that testing window because assessments will be given in the morning. 

If possible, please do not schedule appointments during school hours for the duration of the testing window.  We appreciate all of your support in helping our students feel more confident and well prepared to tackle the assessments.

Car Line Reminders for Pick-Up
To better enable us to walk students out to their cars as quickly as possible, and because there are different staff members assisting with carpool each day who do not recognize all of the cars, please help us by remembering to place your carpool placard in a clearly visible spot in your front windshield.  

If you've misplaced your placard, please email Cindy at and we will be happy to print you a new placard.  Thank you!
