Kindergarten Students for 21/22

If you have a child who will be turning five on or before September 1st, it is time to enroll your child for kindergarten. Students who turn five between September 2nd and December 2nd are eligible for transitional kindergarten. During the summer, Esperanza will be offering a kinder camp for incoming transitional kinder and kindergarten students.

Summer School 2021

Esperanza is excited to offer a summer school opportunity to our students. Due to construction at Rancho Vista Elementary in the summer months, Rancho Vista Elementary will be joining Esperanza to offer our students an opportunity for continued learning. Priority will be given to Rancho Vista and Esperanza students, but will also be open to students from other schools within the Westside Union School District. We will be offering two summer school sessions, June 14-25 and July 12-23. Summer school sessions will be Monday through Friday from 8-12.

Esperanza Site Re-opening Protocols

Although Esperanza is currently in distance learning, we are continually planning for when our students to come back to campus. Our staff misses having our students on campus for instruction. When Esperanza is able to bring students back to campus, we will be ready.

Thank you for your continued support and cooperation throughout this first quarter of the school year.  While we are learning to manage the COVID-19 related issues, your patience has helped us to implement the ever changing health directives as expeditiously as possible.  It has also helped keep our focus on ensuring that our students continue to learn, while also addressing the social-emotional needs created by this unprecedented time.

As we end our 2nd week of school, we are so pleased to have your children back in our classrooms.  We have had a busy first week of school, but so appreciate your help and support in having your children arrive at school on time, with their SafeScreener completed, and ready to learn.  We also thank you for attending the Back to School Night Programs that have already been held or upcoming.

We continue to monitor our staff and students to control the spread of the COVID virus, so being thorough and thoughtful when completing the SafeScreener for your children is a key.  

The County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health is adopting a staged approach, supported by science and public health expertise, to enable schools serving students from transitional kindergarten through grade12 to reopen safely. In addition to the conditions imposed on schools by the State Public Health Officer and the California Department of Education, schools must also be in compliance with these employee and student safety and infection control protocols.

We are so excited and looking forward to welcoming our students back to school on August 4th.  Be looking for specific information such as start time, teacher assignments, lunch and breakfast schedules, and opening activities from the principal of your child’s school this week.   

During the past few months, several changes were made and others reinforced by legislation and regulation in our state.  So, here are some answers to frequently requested information:

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.
