We are so proud of how hard our Panthers have worked this year! Please continue to monitor your student’s attendance and academic progress on google classroom, PowerSchool, and Class Dojo. We want our students to continue to achieve academic excellence. Please encourage your student to attend the support opportunities provided by their teachers. Teachers will share this information on google classroom, email, and Class Dojo. If you need any assistance, please reach out to the teachers, counselors, administration, or office staff. We are here to support our families!

Street Safety Rules: As we open our schools for in-person learning for the parents who have requested it, we encourage parents/guardians to spend time reviewing street safety rules with your children. 
The crossing guards that helped guide students safely across the street used to be provided by the City of Lawndale, but they terminated the contract last June.  As a result, there will be no crossing guards to guide your students to school.

Safe routes to school maps and resources can be found on our website at www.lawndalesd.net/srts
