Annual Giving!!

Our Annual Giving Drive is our biggest friend raiser of the year! All donations are tax deductible and 100% of donations go directly to fund programs for our kids! Any amount is appreciated; no amount is too small!!

Picture Days!

Reminder: Picture Days are October 1 & 2 from 2-5pm. 

Please see the schedule below for your child’s picture time. We would like to follow the time schedule as much as possible for crowd control but, you are welcome to come at anytime between 2-5pm if you are not able to make it at your child’s scheduled time. Remember to wear masks and social distance while waiting for your turn. Masks should be removed only when the photo is being taken. All photos will be taken outside in front of the school.

Order forms will be available and need to filled out and turned in with payment on the day you have your picture taken; cash, checks payable to Shutterbug Express, and credit cards accepted. Sanitized pens will be provided. See the attached flyer for photo packages and pricing.  

The photos taken on these two days will be used in the yearbook so even if you don’t plan on purchasing photos, we would really appreciate you bringing your child/ren to have their photos taken so they can be included on their class page with their classmates and teacher. We understand and respect that you may not be comfortable having photos taken at this time. We will have spring photos as well that can be used for the yearbook.

Thursday, October 1st 

Friday, October 2nd 

* Siblings/pods can come together at one of their scheduled class times 

Friends of Short Avenue (FoSA)  will have:

  • limited Spirit Wear available for purchase
  • Sign-up sheets for volunteer opportunities (getting involved in your child/ren’s school helps create bonds and strengthen both your and their connection with  the school – meet new families – make new friends – help the school)
  • Annual Giving information 
  • Free Short Avenue Elementary lawn signs!

Welcome Back!

We hope you all had a wonderful and safe summer!

Regular class schedules will begin on Thursday, August 20th. Teachers should have reached out to share their schedules with you and their schedules will also be made available to you on the Short Avenue website later this week. The first ten days of school will be a Smart Start where our teachers will be teaching children how to be self-sufficient using Schoology, Seesaw and/or Google Classroom.  We really are focusing on making things easier for our students and our parents! Our teachers have been working tirelessly, so please remember to be open-minded and patient with all of us, as we continue to learn and adapt to this new way of teaching and learning.

Please make sure you have registered for the Parent Portal. If you have any problems with Parent Portal or Schoology, please email our Coordinator, Rachel Burris, rjs6223@lausd.net or our Office Technician, Hector Garcia, hxg6909@lausd.net. Short Avenue will be contacting parents they know that are missing PINs and student emails this week.
