If you have multiple children at the school, the older sibling(s) will be sent to the youngest sibling's pick-up location.


We ask that you do not use the Staff Parking lot at any time and follow all parking and traffic regulations at all times.


Before School Supervision
Student supervision begins at 8:00a.m.  Daily health screening QR Codes are checked at the Playground Gate for Grades 1-5 and Kindergarten Gate for Grades TK & Kinder. Teachers pick up students at 8:10 a.m. Students are to walk to their classroom line-up areas on the yard after they enter the school. Students are not to loiter in the hallways, chase one another around, play with personal sports equipment (i.e. balls, jump ropes, etc) or handheld electronics. Students are encouraged to communicate with one another with kind and encouraging verbal exchanges as they begin their productive school day of learning.

El Oro Way Traffic Guidelines
El Oro Way has approximately 500 students being dropped off within 15 minutes. 
It is imperative that we follow the posted traffic signs.

  • Drop off students in the loading/unloading zone in front of the school. DO NOT drop off students or stop your car along the RED curb or in the crosswalk zone.
  • DO NOT park your car in the loading/unloading zone. Please be considerate and patient in the loading/unloading zone.
  • Time constraints allow approximately 5-10 seconds per car to unload.
  • For parents who would like to walk their student(s) to campus, please park on the street and not in the parking lot.
  • The parking lot is reserved for the El Oro Way staff. This is not a pick up or drop off zone for students.
  • Set an example for our students and children by using the designated crosswalks and NOT jaywalking.
  • There are no U-turns allowed on El Oro Way.
  • LAPD regularly monitors El Oro Way. Traffic citations have been issued.

Please be courteous to our parent volunteers. Their main concern is the safety of all of our children.

School Volunteer Program

If you have any questions, please call the office at (818) 360-2288 and speak with the Parent/Community Rep, Ms. Schiffman. 


Classroom Assignments
Special consideration has been given to each child for his/her class assignment. Teachers and administrators  have met and organized students into new classes for the coming year. The following major criteria have been utilized for class assignments: academic level, age, bilingual status, special education needs, social/emotional maturity, gifted/talented qualifications, previous retention and gender. Teachers and administrators devote many hours to the organization process in order to ensure that each student is placed in the appropriate class based upon his/her needs. We therefore encourage parents not to make special request for students to be placed in specific classrooms. We value each student and will give each child special consideration.
