Principal's Corner

Hello Taper Families!! 
Now that we are in full swing, here are some things to remember: 
Picking up your student on time is important for your child's safety. Please remember that dismissal is at 2:24 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Early Out Tuesdays dismiss at 1:24 pm.
We have had many safety complaints over the last week about the back gate (Casey Place) and the Kindergarten gate (Barhugh Avenue) about parents double parking and calling their students to run between cars to cross the street. Please, please, keep the safety of our Taper students in mind and park legally to help your student cross the street in a crosswalk. Dismissal will calm down over the course of the coming weeks as we find our routines, but please, park early, and walk to pick up your student. 
If you are a parent of a Kindergarten student, please be aware of the bus loading and unloading zone on Barhugh Avenue. This is school bus parking only. Please wait for your students on the sidewalk and allow the many classes we have dismissing out the Kinder gate to come out and be dismissed safely. Thank you for your support in this matter!
Here are some older announcements, still with useful links:
A few things to remember as we kick off the new school year: we are always looking for volunteers and would love if you would fill out the volunteer application that is listed on the LAUSD website ( here ) to help out here at Taper. PTO is always looking for new members as well, so stop on by the first PTO meeting on August 17th to see where we can use your help!
Please remember to fill out the LAUSD meal application. The LAUSD meal application is listed here. Full priced lunch meals are $2.75 and the reduced price of lunch is $.40.
Have a wonderful weekend,
Mr. Skrumbis
