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

NEW UNIFORM GUIDELINES!
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.
