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.
