School Update for the Week of September 5th

Greetings Eagle Rock families! This is Principal Steinorth with your school update for the week of September 5th. As you may have heard, this week brought several unique challenges to our school and school district. LAUSD was subjected to a Ransomware Attack which led to many district software systems to stop working for students, staff, and parents. I happy to report that we are on our way back to full functionality with most of our staff and student accounts being reset. If your student still does not have a working MyMail account, please have them ask their Period 1 teacher for assistance on Monday. Parent access to Schoology has not been fully restored, but this should happen within the next several days. The heatwave this week also took a toll on the school with the excessive heat leading to cooling equipment breaking down and most athletic games and practices being cancelled. We look forward to cooler temperatures next week.

Parents, if you would like to be more involved with decision making at the school, consider running for one of our school councils. Elections will take place next week. See the documents attached to the email version of this message for more information.

If you haven’t already done so, please submit your More Than A Meal application. The amount of meal applications that qualify for free or reduced meals determines our school’s Title I and other categorical funding for the next school year. Additionally, students who qualify may be eligible to have some of their college application fees waived and IB, AP and SAT exams fees may be significantly reduced.  It only takes a few minutes to apply—just go to our school’s website and click on the meal application icon under the Parents tab or go directly to . If you prefer a paper application, pick one up in either the Attendance or Main Office.  Only one application per family is needed.

Finally, if you are interested in learning more about what’s happening here at the Rock, consider attending Coffee With The Principal on Thursday, September 15th at 9:00 a.m. in our school Library. I hope to see you there! Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
