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.

A special thank you to Ms. Berrner for all of her hard work in teaching and coaching our team to victory. Under her leadership, Laurel's Pentathlon team gathered to practice after school once or twice a week and nearly every Saturday since November!
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 sent to the office for a tardy slip.
Thank you in advance for being on time and making it a priority with your student. It makes a great start for the day!

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.
As per Orange County Ordinance 4-1-46 "No person having the charge of any dog except a guide dog or service dog shall permit the dog to be, under any circumstances, within public school property." It is unlawful to be on any public school property with your dog. Many families may not appreciate this news. However, due to the safety of all students and owners' liability, it is important for all to abide. Please leave all pets at home.
Traffic in the back alley has become a concern, especially in the mornings from 7:45 - 8:00 a.m. 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 advised there is NO parking allowed in the alley. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
