All schools that were closed due to the wildfires will reopen on Monday, December 11.
 
The decision to reopen schools was based on improved air quality and the lifting of mandatory evacuations that affected school communities.
 
The safety of our students and employees is always top priority.
 
L.A. Unified crews are working through the weekend to install new air filters as needed and ensure that facilities are ready for teaching and learning to resume. Some outdoor activities may be limited until air quality returns to normal levels.

November is the month that Lawrence Middle School submits the names of eighth graders for the printing of culmination certificates. Parents will have the opportunity to request any changes that need to be made in advance. The deadline to turn in the name change card is November 15th. Please review the way your child’s name appears on the report cards, for this is the way it will be printed on the certificate. (e.g. Smith, John T. on report card will be printed John T. Smith on the certificate).  Please have your child come to the Counseling Office to pick up the OFFICIAL pink culmination name card form-FOR CHANGES ONLY- and return it to the office before the deadline. A parent’s signature is required. We will not be able to honor any requests received after the deadline.
