News from Principal DaCorsi

Good evening Welby Way families,

I hope you are all having a nice weekend and staying dry and safe with the weather.  It is predicted to rain the next few days in a row.  I will keep everyone updated if there are any changes in procedures for school due to the weather.  Our 3rd and 5th grade gate continues to be broken and until it is fixed, 3rd and 5th grade students can enter through the gate on Kittridge next to the storage bin.  

Cafeteria Update:  LAUSD has added shrimp to the cafeteria menu that could be served at some point in the school year.   If you have not already, please be sure to inform our school nurse if your child has shell fish allergies so we make sure other food options are offered to your child and help keep everyone safe.
