New Families Please Attend the New Student Orientation
Thursday, August 12th at 8:30 am at Roscomare Road School
*Students and parents must wear and mask and will answer COVID-19 safety questions.
Enrollment for the 2021-22 school year will begin on Monday, March 1, 2021
Since 2015, parents can submit their applications electronically through the portal: https://apply.lausd.net.
Now, more than ever, we encourage you to promote online submission of District K-12 Open Enrollment applications among the parents you serve. Online submission will significantly reduce the amount of work required from your front office staff. For example, parents can manage the accept/decline process independently if their application is submitted online. Some of our District K-12 Open Enrollment schools have made computers available in their front office during the month of May to encourage parents to submit their applications electronically. We have paper applications in our main office, but this may delay the processing of your application.

LAUSD IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS:
- All children entering a California school at pre-school or kindergarten level (or 1st grade if kindergarten was skipped) require immunization against polio, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella (MMR), hepatitis B and varicella.
- Acceptable varicella documentation includes either the immunization or documentation by a health care provider that the child has had the varicella (chickenpox) disease.
- The health care provider or health agency performing the immunizations must give a written record to the student or parent/guardian containing the following information:
- Full legal name of child
- Birth date of child
- Type of vaccine(s) administered
- Date of each immunization (month/year), or health care provider’s written indication that the child had the disease, or lab report indicating that the child has immunity for the disease
- Name of health care provider or health agency administering vaccine(s)
- Exemptions to the immunization requirement are provided for medical reasons. (See California Administrative Code, Title 17, Division 1, Chapter 4, Section 6051.)
Under a new law enacted by SB 277, beginning January 1, 2016 personal beliefs exemptions will no longer be an option for the vaccines that are currently required for entry into child care or school in California. Personal beliefs exemptions already on file will remain valid until the child reaches the next immunization checkpoint at transitional kindergarten/kindergarten or 7th grade.
