    Teachers will be available to students via each teacher’s chosen method of communication (email, phone, etc.)  Monday through Friday. To update your parent email address, please log in to your Schoology parent portal.  Students can access their email through LAUSD Single-Sign On Portal. The health and safety of our students is what is most important during this time.  Encourage your students to stay at home, stay away from crowds, and stay healthy.

    Skateboard/Bicycle Rack:

    Parents, we are happy to let you know that Walnut Park Middle School has a bicycle and skateboard rack on campus. Please be advised that if your child brings a skateboard or bicycle to school, they must also bring a lock. The school is not responsible for any bicycle or skateboard that is placed without a lock. Skateboards and bicycles will not be held in the STEM office.

    Cell Phone Policy and Student Illnesses:

    Parents, I want to take the time to remind you of the cellphone policy at STEM ACADEMY. Students are allowed to bring cell phones, but all cell phones must be turned OFF during instructional time. If a student is using their personal phone or if the phone is turned on, it can be subject to confiscation. In case of emergency or illness, the school offices have telephones that are available for student use. Forgetting their homework and/or PE uniform is not an emergency.

    It has come to our attention that many students are using their personal cell phones and calling parents to pick them up because they don't feel well. If a student is feeling ill, they are to tell the teacher or an adult so they  can be referred to the school nurse. If the nurse sees that the student requires medical attention, she will notify the parent to pick up the student. If a student is not referred to the nurse and calls on their own and is taken home, it is not an excused absence. You may take your child home at your child's request, but it will not be excused on the school's behalf.

    Parents, please talk to your children about the rules and I thank you for your ongoing support. If you have any questions, please feel free to call the STEM office.

    Ms. Sanabria
