Are you returning next year?  


To help plan for next year - Arlington needs to gain a better sense of our projected student enrollment.  This information will help determine the number of open slots for permits and Open Enrollment as well as staffing.   Families in TK-4th grade will be receiving a text message with a link to a Google form asking if your child will return next year.  If you have a new, incoming student you plan to enroll, or have enrolled, you can list on the form, as well.  Thank you!  


Registration and Enrollment has been moved to online.  Please call the Family Welcome & Enrollment Center at 310-972-6280 for more information.


Overwhelmed with all the changes and trying to find a way to juggle all of your responsibilities and take care of yourself? Are you interested in participating in a parent networking wellness group? Finding time for ourselves is important in these stressful times with so much on our plates it can be critical to find ways to connect.  TUSD is interested in hosting a parent support group for any TUSD parent who is interested in connecting with other parents for moral support and community.  Click here to indicate your interest and we will send you a link to the online meeting.  

We are adjusting to new routines, restrictions, time away from family and friends, health concerns and possible changes in employment, causing an array of emotions.  During this time you may be noticing social emotional changes within your child.  Checking in and speaking with your child regarding their feelings is important, although not always easy.  You may find sharing highs (something that went well) and lows (something that didn't go well) for the day may be helpful.  Please encourage your child to join my Google classroom, Ms. Desimone's Counseling Corner.  We often discuss feelings and students can access social emotional learning activities and videos. If you are looking for mental health resources for your child, please do not hesitate to contact me at

Another resource for families: The app Headspace is offering free subscriptions to all LA residents, just follow the link CLICK HERE.   

What is the Headspace app?  Headspace provides resources such as meditations, sleep, and movement exercises to help you out, however you’re feeling. It’s a way of helping you find some space and kindness for yourself and those around you.

Raptor Visitor/Volunteer Management System

Image result for Raptor Visitor management system

Upon entering any TUSD school, visitors will be asked to present government-issued identification (ID) with a barcode, such as a driver’s license, which can either be scanned or manually entered into the system. If a parent/guardian, for any reason, does not have this type of ID, a school staff member can use alternate forms of ID and manually enter the visitor’s information into the Raptor system.  For improved safety, Raptor will allow us to better screen all of our visitors on campus. The system checks to ensure that registered sex offenders are not entering our school campuses without our knowledge. For those of you who generously volunteer your time on our campuses, TUSD will continue to adhere to its Volunteer Policy (to view, please visit our website at TUSD school volunteers will receive a Raptor badge each time they are on campus.
