The parade starts at the corner of Eagle Rock and York and travels north on Eagle Rock Boulevard to Merton Avenue. School will be closed on November 11 for Veterans Day.

In closing, Daylight saving time ends this Sunday, November 3 at 2:00 a.m. Yes, this means we gain an hour of sleep!

Good evening. This is ERJSHS School Principal Keipp with an important message for our families.

At noon on Friday, international climate activist Greta Thunberg will appear at Youth Climate Strike Los Angeles, a rally planned for the steps of City Hall. Climate change is one of the defining issues of our time and will shape the future.

The voice of our students in addressing this issue is important. Our school will connect students by sharing information and teachers may decide how to connect the following options with their standards-based lesson during period 3:

n  Los Angeles Unified will live-stream Ms. Thunberg’s remarks from Youth Climate Strike Los Angeles on our website to share in our schools.

n  Discussing ways students can become more effective advocates on this issue.

n  Giving students the opportunity to discuss climate change 

We will not provide supervision for any student who leaves campus to participate in the rally at City Hall. However, if a parent or guardian checks a student out of school to participate in Youth Climate Strike Los Angeles, the absence will be considered excused due to the educational component.

If you have any questions, please call me at (323)340-3500. Thank you for your time and continued support.


Buenas noches. Habla el/la director(a) Keipp de la escuela ERJSHS con un mensaje importante para nuestras familias.

El viernes al medio día la activista del medio ambiente Greta Thunberg se presentará en la Huelga Juvenil de Los Ángeles, Youth Climate Strike Los Angeles, una demostración planeada en los escalones del ayuntamiento de la ciudad. El cambio climático es uno de los temas más determinantes de nuestros tiempos y dará forma al futuro.

La voz de nuestros estudiantes al dirigirse a este tema es muy importante. Nuestra escuela conectará a los estudiantes mediante con el liderazco del maestro de periodo 3:

  • El Distrito Unificado de Los Ángeles transmitira los comentarios de la Sra.Thunberg desde Youth Climate Strike Los Angeles por medio de nuestro sitio web para que se compartan en nuestras escuelas.
  • Dialogar maneras en que los estudiantes pueden convertirse en defensores mas efectivos de este tema.
  • Dándoles a los estudiantes la oportunidad de hablar sobre el cambio climático durante la clase 

No proporcionaremos supervisión para ningún estudiante que se salga de la escuela  para participar en la demostración en el Ayuntamiento de la Ciudad. No obstante, si un padre de familia o tutor va a la escuela a recoger temprano al estudiante para que participe en el evento de Youth Climate Strike Los Angeles, la ausencia se considerará justificada por su componente educativo. 

Si tienen alguna pregunta por favor comuníquense conmigo al (323)340-3500. Gracias por su tiempo y apoyo continuo.
