Visitors/Volunteers on Campus

Please be sure to sign in at the office if you are volunteering in the classroom or need to visit the school for any reason, aside from regular pick up or drop off. Thank you! 

Save Those Box Tops!

Keep bringing in those boxtops!  Be sure to include your child's name and room number, if you send the boxtops in baggies.  The money raised helps to buy new playground balls and other equipment.  Way to go Leopards!

Notification System

We are currently using the SchoolMessenger communication system to send important announcements to you.  SchoolMessenger offers you the ability to determine how you would like to receive the different types of messages.  If you would like to receive messages in a different manner (different phone number, additional phone number, email, text, etc.) please call Kyle Coates (714) 990-7533 at the District Office to make those changes.

Recycling Opportunity

All PAPER wanted!  This year tell all family and friends to save their old newspapers, magazines, catalogs, mail, etc.  All paper (except anything associated with food) will be accepted.  Bag or box your papers and bring them to your child's class or simply drop them in our brown paper recycling dumpster.  The dumpster is located next to the blue trash dumpsters adjacent to the cafeteria and Day Care Room.  For every 2,000 lbs. we collect, the school will receive $90, so start saving.  We will also continue collecting ink cartridges and cell phones.  Please call the office if you have any questions.

Laurel Elementary School Attendance Update

Please help your child arrive to school safely and on time.  Please remember the following:

7:58 a.m. First Bell rings indicating students are to line up at their designated spot, meet their teacher, and walk to class.

8:00 a.m. Second Bell is when school officially begins.  If your child arrives after this bell, he/she will be marked tardy.

In order to ensure you child arrives to school on time, please make arrangements to arrive on campus by 7:45 a.m.

Thank you in advance for being on time and making it a priority with your student. 

Alley Traffic - Drop Off & Pick Up Procedures

At Laurel, safety first is our main priority, especially when dropping off and picking up students. We ask that all parents help us keep our Laurel students safe. Please be advised of the following procedures for drop off and pick up in the alley. 

  • We ask ALL parents to enter on Birch and drive out toward Imperial. Laurel families should never drive toward Birch or park in the alley. 
  • Please be aware of buses. If you must pass, only pass to the left of a school bus, never to the right. If the red lights are flashing, penal code mandates that all vehicles must stop and may not pass.
  • Please pull all the way forward to the gate entrance. Do not allow your child(ren) to exit the car early.
  • We suggest all students exit on the right side of the car directly into the school gate to avoid possible accidents.
  • Please be advised there is NO parking allowed in the alley. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Welcome to Laurel!

Thank you to all the new Leopard families that attended our Welcome to Laurel Meet and Greet with Mrs. Bojorquez. I am excited for a fantastic 2015-2016 school year! You can access the presentation HERE

Hot Weather Precautions

During the hot weather, we want to ensure all Laurel families that we are keeping an eye on the weather and following hot weather guidelines sent to schools by the O.C. Health Care Agency and Orange County Department of Education. Click HERE to view these guidelines. 

During PE, students are meeting indoors, either in the cafeteria or a classroom or activity has been kept to a minimum. During lunch, students eat indoors and are encouraged to remain in the shade and participate in minimal activities. Classroom teachers have provided card games and other games for students to utilize during their recess time. 

Please encourage school appropriate warm weather dress and we encourage students to bring water bottles from home to stay hydrated both in and out of class.

Street Sweeping -- Parking Alert!

Street sweeping on Flower Avenue is on Thursdays.  We are permitted to park anywhere along the east curb (the school side) other than the Bus Loading Zone.  The City has assured us that sweeping on the east side will be done around 7:00 a.m. so as not to interfere with our school traffic.  Please avoid parking on the west side (the business side) of Flower as sweeping will be done on that side later in the day, and you could be cited.
