Health Information

Read here for information regarding lice.   You can also find information on the LAUSD website.

Traffic Safety

Safety of our children, family, and community members is our number one concern.  In order to maintain a safe and effective flow of traffic on Juniette, Randall, and other surrounding street, please remember to utilize the "drop-off zone" in the morning when dropping your kids off for school.

Please DO NOT:

  • double park along Juniette Street for any reason (i.e. dropping off/picking up passengers).
  • allow children to cross Juniette Street outside of the 'crosswalks.'
  • forget to check for moving cars before leaving the "drop-off zone.

School Uniforms

While there is no formal dress code/uniform policy, Playa del Rey students adhere to a voluntary dress code that consist of: white or navy blue polo shirt with a collar, and khaki pants or knee-length skirt. Uniforms will be worn Monday-Thursday. Friday students are invited to either wear the uniform or a Playa Del Rey t-shirt. Because we are a public school, parents have the right to opt out of the uniform policy. To opt out, please write a letter to the office stating your decision to do so.  All students are required to adhere to the LAUSD dress code.

Uniforms are worn Monday- Thursday. Spirit Fridays are a chance to show school pride with spirit wear.

Homework Policy

HOMEWORK POLICY [ABBREVIATED]: (A detailed policy statement is available in the front office) Purposeful homework is a necessary part of each student’s educational program. Homework is based on the needs of the class or individual student and is directly related to the content and objectives being taught. While homework may be scheduled over an extended period of time that may include weekends and vacations, homework will be assigned for a minimum of four days a week (Monday through Thursday). The average time needed for completion of homework assignments per day varies according to grade level.

•TK/ Kindergarten.....15 to 20 minutes
• Grades 1 & 2 ....20 to 35 minutes
• Grades 3 & 4.....35 to 45 minutes
• Grade 5...........50 to 60 minutes

In addition, students at Playa del Rey are expected to read or be read to for a minimum of 15-20 minutes daily.
