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 picking up or dropping off a student. 

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!

School Supply List

Please click here for the recommended school supply list for all grade levels.  We appreciate the generosity of our families in making sure that all students are prepared for the upcoming school year!

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 Shannon Ames (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.

Superintendent Search


The Brea Olinda Unified School District Board of Education has retained Dr. Mike Escalante and Dr. Marc Ecker of Leadership Associates to assist in the search for a new superintendent for BOUSD.  They will be in our District on Wednesday, March 25, 2015, to solicit input that will be used to develop the recruitment criteria.  Your input about the desired personal and professional qualities expected in the incoming superintendent is valuable to the selection process. 

Meetings will be scheduled to gather input from staff, parents, community leaders, service organizations, PTA/PTO/PTSA Boards, and Site Councils. The community is invited to attend the open forum scheduled for March 25, at 7:00 p.m. in the District Office conference room.

For those who are unable to attend the meetings, a survey is available by clicking on the following link:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WKBXCX3.

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.

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. 

Alley Parking

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.
