General Info

ARRIVAL TIME
School begins promptly at 8:15 am . We strongly request that children arrive no earlier than 7:50 am. Students will not be let on campus until 7:50 am, and we cannot provide supervision until that time. To avoid your child missing valuable instruction time, please be sure he/she arrives on time.

Breakfast in the Classroom
LAUSD launched BIC, or breakfast in the classroom in 2014 at Justice Street School. Every day at 8:15 am every child is given an opportunity in their class to eat breakfast. Please talk to your child’s teacher if you want to make arrangements for your child.

CLASSROOM VISITATIONS 
Parents are encouraged to observe in their child’s classroom. If a teacher conference is desired after a visitation, a separate appointment must be made. Preschool-aged children are not to accompany parents during classroom observations (or on field trips). By law, and for the protection of your child, class visitors must sign in and secure a Visitor’s Pass in the office when entering school. Please limit your classroom visitation to 20 minutes.

HOMEWORK
School and District policy dictates that teachers assign homework to all students on a Monday – Thursday schedule. Upper grades may occasionally be assigned homework on Friday or over the weekend. The approximate time allocations are as follows:

          Kindergarten: 15 – 20 minutes per day
          Grades 1 and 2: 30 – 35 minutes per day
          Grades 3 and 4: 35 – 45 minutes per day
          Grade 5: 50 – 60 minutes per day

Keep in mind that these are guidelines. The exact amount of time it takes for a student to complete his or her assignments depends on the individual child. If you have concerns about your child’s homework, feel free to discuss it with your child’s teacher.
