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.
