Our Vision

We all contribute to an interdependent, green community that promotes creativity, rigor and a growth mindset in preparing students for success.


School Messenger

Did you know that you have control of how you receive messages from Los Cerritos via School Messenger? Some families enjoy the recorded phone calls, but others prefer texts or emails instead. If you'd like to change your preferences, please click below to open my locker, which contains directions for doing so through your ParentVUE account. We want you to stay informed about current events, but in the way that best works for you.

Please check out our new uniform guidelines! Go to the menu above and select "Schedule/Uniforms," then "Uniform Policy" to see the changes. The teachers all voted with input from parents, and we think you'll be pleasantly surprised. The most notable changes are that we will allow use of dark blue jeans (with no rips or marks) as bottoms, navy leggings (as long as the shirt worn with it is finger tip length) as bottoms, and we have lifted the restriction limiting the color of accessories (such as socks, tights, and hair bows/ties). These changes should make shopping easier for parents, and life a little more comfortable for our kids. On the other hand, one thing we're going to start tightening up on is the color of outerwear that we allow. Sweaters and sweatshirts will need to be navy blue or red, with no logo, or with Los Cerritos artwork. Winter jackets and raincoats of any color will be allowed over a navy or red sweater, but only while students are outside on the playground.

Parent VUE

Parent VUE:  A New Website for Parents (Un Nuevo sitio web para padres)
Parent VUE is a website that allows parents to view their children’s current and historical information, including daily attendance, grades, report cards, test scores, discipline, graduation status, preparation for college and more.  It is also a one-stop location for links to other parent services including School Loop and MySchoolBucks (School meal accounts).

With one simple activation, parents can view information on all of their children, from elementary school to high school.  Parents also will be able to update emergency card information electronically.

New Website navigation

We would like to make our school website a useful tool for parents and students.  Please note that we have changed the location of some of our information. Our calendar is now synced and appears on the homepage, PTA page and calendar page.

For parent information see the Resource page.

Take some time and click on each tab to see where different information is. 

Feedback on how to make this website more helpful please feel free to contact the school office.

Keep in Touch with Schoolloop

For texts and emails please make sure to sign up for Schoolloop. This is not an automatic notification you mush see Michael, the school Secretary, to be on the notification list.  

Schoolloop allows you to:

  • Receive school bulletins
  • Receive notices from the Principal, PTA and school
  • Notifies you of school events (picture day, minimum days, etc.)

To reduce cost and paper waste much of the school information now goes out electronically.

Los Cerritos News


The National Science Teacher Association and the California Science Teachers Association are supporting a March for Science at multiple locations nationally on Saturday, April 22, including a 10 a.m. Long Beach march from Bixby Knolls to Houghton Park.  View more information about the Long Beach march at the Teachers Association of Long Beach website.


The intent of the nonpartisan march is to advocate for high quality science education for all and to advance the idea that science has application to everyday life, is a vehicle for lifelong learning, and expands our knowledge of the world around us.


Learn more about the national effort at marchforscience.com.


The Long Beach Public Library will offer an amnesty program for overdue book fines during the month of April, in celebration of National Library Month. From April 1 to April 30 the library will welcome back its overdue books and waive associated fines. Return any undamaged, overdue library materials to your local Long Beach Public Library location, and your overdue fines will be waived. If you have overdue fines from previously returned materials, donate a new book to the library and those fines will be waived, too.  For more information, visit the Long Beach Public Library in person or online at www.lbpl.org.
