Dear ERUSD Community,
As you may know, the ERUSD Board of Education has requested to review and to discuss the different budget options that will allow us to continue with the construction project for El Rancho High School. As part of the process, we have stopped all construction activities related to the El Rancho High School project until we have the following in place:
1) Clear scenarios for construction with specific projected costs.
2) Clear budget options for the duration of the entire project.
3) Clear options to minimize the impact of taxes on the citizens of the City of Pico Rivera.
4) Clear budget and construction options that will keep the district financially stable.
5) A short- and long-term plan for supervision, monitoring, and evaluation of the investments related to this project. This will require the allocation of District staff to partner with the agencies that manage the actual construction.
The El Rancho Unified School District Board of Education and staff are committed to fulfilling the commitment made with the residents of the City of Pico Rivera. And, we are committed to ensuring that the project will be completed with a budget that the District and the community can afford.
There will be a Special Board meeting on Monday, September 24, 2018 at 5:00 PM to discuss the different scenarios related to this project.

Free and reduced price meals are available to families who believe they may qualify. If your family chooses to apply, a Free and Reduced Meal Application Form must be completed. You can complete the form by accessing the online meal application quick link above or by visiting your child’s school to obtain a paper copy. Only complete one application per family. The information you provide will be used to determine or prove your child’s eligibility for free or reduced-priced meals. This information may also be used for other state or federally funded school benefits. If you have any questions about the meal application or your child’s eligibility, please contact the District Food Services Department at (562) 801-7440.
As a parent/guardian, you should be aware that student safety is a top priority in our district. We provide ongoing emergency response training to school staff and administrators. Emergency drills are performed on a regular basis during the school year in a variety of formats. Procedures to be followed during these drills are updated on a regular basis to reflect "best practice" procedures as defined by first response agencies to ensure that students and staff are aware of the most effective and safest emergency responses.
Please see the attached flyer which contains information that will assist you before, during, and in the event of an emergency.
