All PAPER wanted! This year tell all family and friends to save their old newspapers, magazines, catalogs, mail, etc. All paper (except anything associated with food) will be accepted. Bag or box your papers and bring them to your child's class or simply drop them in our brown paper recycling dumpster. The dumpster is located next to the blue trash dumpsters adjacent to the cafeteria and Day Care Room. For every 2,000 lbs. we collect, the school will receive $90, so start saving. We will also continue collecting ink cartridges and cell phones. Please call the office if you have any questions.

Welcome to Laurel!
Thank you to all the new Leopard families that attended our Welcome to Laurel Meet and Greet with Mrs. Bojorquez. I am excited for a fantastic 2015-2016 school year! You can access the presentation HERE.
Hot Weather Precautions
During the hot weather, we want to ensure all Laurel families that we are keeping an eye on the weather and following hot weather guidelines sent to schools by the O.C. Health Care Agency and Orange County Department of Education. Click
During PE, students are meeting indoors, either in the cafeteria or a classroom or activity has been kept to a minimum. During lunch, students eat indoors and are encouraged to remain in the shade and participate in minimal activities. Classroom teachers have provided card games and other games for students to utilize during their recess time.
Please encourage school appropriate warm weather dress and we encourage students to bring water bottles from home to stay hydrated both in and out of class.

Street Sweeping -- Parking Alert!
Street sweeping on Flower Avenue is on Thursdays. We are permitted to park anywhere along the east curb (the school side) other than the Bus Loading Zone. The City has assured us that sweeping on the east side will be done around 7:00 a.m. so as not to interfere with our school traffic. Please avoid parking on the west side (the business side) of Flower as sweeping will be done on that side later in the day, and you could be cited.
