2020-2021 Board Presentation

Welcome to Esperanza!

 

Esperanza’s School Plan offers the on-going opportunity to plan, implement, monitor, and evaluate a meaningful standards-based curriculum for all students. The goals, objectives, and activities have been identified and written based on needs expressed by students, parents, and staff input. These goals, objectives, and activities are established to improve and focus instruction at Esperanza’s Elementary School enabling students to meet grade level, district, and CA state standards.

The ELAC, School Site Council, and Grade Level Leadership Teams collaborated to develop and refine the plan and will continue to work towards the ongoing implementation, evaluation and revision of this plan as needed. Esperanza Elementary School's essential philosophical cornerstones include the concept that quality school programs are based on shared decision-making by all staff members in meeting school, district, and state guidelines.

Dear Westside Parents and Community Members,


As we approach the end of the third quarter and the beginning of spring break, we have some information to share with you about upcoming changes related to COVID-19 as well as some updates. Effective for our students and our staff, wearing masks in Los Angeles County remains strongly recommended in schools, however, this will no longer be a requirement. So, when students and staff return to school on Monday, March 14th, mask wearing will be optional

More topics in this letter include:

•  Job Fair

•  Kindergarten Round Up

•  Upcoming Middle School Events

•  Enrollment

•  Intra-district Transfers

•  Progress Reports

•  Spring Break

•  Upcoming Board Meetings

Updated

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has lifted the requirement that students wear masks outdoors at school.  Effective with the opening of school tomorrow morning, our students no longer need to wear their masks outdoors on the campus.  If you or your child continue to feel safer wearing a mask outdoors, please feel free to do that also. Indoor masking remains a requirement, but it appears that the Public Health Agencies are indicating that the data on COVD-19 continues to show marked improvement.  However, students still need to wear their masks while inside the classroom.

Just a reminder that the transfer process begins on March 1, 2022 and will close for the 1st round of transfers on April 15, 2022.  Applications can be completed online.
