With the 4th of July holiday fast approaching, the Long Beach Fire and Police Departments would like to remind residents, visitors, and staff that all fireworks, including those marked “Safe and Sane,” are ILLEGAL in the City of Long Beach. 

The Fire and Police Departments will be out in force the days leading up to and on July 4th to ensure compliance of the Long Beach City Ordinance that bans fireworks. Although both Departments seek voluntary compliance to ensure public safety, this duty often requires strict enforcement of all laws through arrests and citations. Anyone cited or arrested for fireworks violations may be faced with a $1,000 fine, sentenced to jail for six months, or both. The fines and penalties may increase depending on the fireworks’ classification. 

Fireworks may be voluntarily disposed at collection bins located at:

  • All fire stations
  • Lifeguard Headquarters 2100 E. Ocean Boulevard, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • Any police station

For more information, alerts, advisories, and emergency news please visit www.longbeach.gov/fire, "Like" us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and Instagram, or contact LBFD Community Services at (562) 570-2525. 

If you See Something, Say Something! Call Long Beach Police Dispatch at (562) 435-6711 or 9-1-1 if you observe dangerous or illegal activities.

 

Together, we can enjoy a safe holiday!

Attention all 8th through 12th Grade Students:  Summer School Registration Begins Monday, April 9.

 

All 9th through 12th grade students who are interested in taking Summer School classes to make up a grade to meet graduation requirements or to fulfill college entrance requirements must register using our online enrollment system.  The online system will be available starting Monday, April 9.  Summer School registration will continue until April 27 at 5 p.m. 

 

Current 8th through 11th graders also have the opportunity to take a Math Summer Bridge course to help prepare them for the course work that they will be studying in the coming school year.  These courses include Pre-Algebra, Pre-Geometry and Pre-Intermediate Algebra.  These courses will be taken for elective credit and the grade issued will be a Pass/No Credit.  This is an excellent opportunity to get a jump start for next year. 

 

Summer School Registration will begin by completing the application online at www.lbschools.net/summer.  After the application is submitted, the student or parent will receive an immediate on screen confirmation that they have registered.  Two weeks after registering, parents and students will be able to view the courses that counselors have selected for your child to take during summer school.  If you would like to discuss the classes needed, please make an appointment with the counselor before May.  Please note that counselors will select summer school courses based on credit recovery needs, “a-g” completion needs or placement in a Math Bridge course.

 

Atención a todos los estudiantes del 8º a 12º grado escolar: Las inscripciones para las clases de verano en las escuelas preparatorias comienzan el lunes 9 de abril.

 

Todos los estudiantes del 9º a 12º grado escolar interesados en asistir a las clases de escuela de verano para poder cumplir con los requisitos de graduación o para cumplir con un requisito de admisión a la universidad deberán inscribirse a través de nuestro sistema de inscripciones en línea (por Internet). El sistema de inscripciones en línea estará disponible a partir del lunes 9 de abril. Las inscripciones para las clases de la escuela de verano continuarán hasta el 27 de abril a las 5pm. 

 

Los estudiantes que actualmente cursan 8º a 11º grado escolar también tienen la oportunidad de tomar un curso Puente de Matemáticas en el Verano como parte de su preparación para los cursos que estarán estudiando durante el próximo año lectivo. Estos cursos incluyen Pre-Álgebra, Pre- Geometría y Pre-Álgebra de Nivel Intermedio. Estos cursos electivos se tomarán como crédito electivo y la calificación que recibirán será “Aprobatoria/No Crédito”. Esta es una excelente oportunidad para poner en marcha el próximo ciclo escolar.  

 

Las inscripciones para la escuela de verano iniciarán llenando la solicitud en línea en www.lbschools.net/summer. Después de entregar la solicitud, el estudiante o padre de familia recibirá una confirmación por correo electrónico indicando su inscripción. Dos semanas después de la inscripción, los padres y estudiantes podrán ver los cursos que los consejeros han elegido para que su hijo(a) tome durante la escuela de verano. Si desea hablar acerca de las clases necesarias, favor de hacer una cita con el consejero antes de mayo. Favor de notar que los consejeros seleccionarán los cursos de verano basado en los créditos de recuperación necesarios, necesidad de cumplir con los requisitos “a-g” o colocación en el curso puente de matemáticas.

Threat Prevention

 

Hello, Students and Families.

 

As we’ve seen in recent weeks, our schools are not immune to the potential threats that so many other schools nationwide have been dealing with.  We appreciate your heightened awareness of this issue, and we continue to encourage everyone in our school communities to report any suspicious information or activity that could impact school safety.

 

Threats to our schools are not harmless, and they are not funny.  They take valuable resources and time from our school district and the law enforcement agencies who work with us each day to keep our schools safe.  Threats cause anxiety for parents, students and staff, and they can disrupt the important work of teaching and learning.  Students who make threats face consequences that linger long after the threat is made.  We reiterate the Long Beach Police Department’s recent statement about such threats:

 

“The Long Beach Police Department takes all potential threats of violence very seriously and thoroughly investigates all reported incidents,” Chief Robert Luna said. “Making any kind of threat whether in person or online, is illegal and has serious consequences.”

 

Those consequences, as we also have seen in recent weeks, can include suspension, expulsion, arrest and potential prosecution under the law.  Students who make threats, even as a “joke,” can quickly find themselves facing the entire range of these consequences. 

 

We urge parents to discuss this matter with their children.  In light of the senseless loss of lives in recent school shootings nationally, it is completely inappropriate and unacceptable to make threats, even as a “joke.”

 

We have appreciated everyone’s support during this challenging time.  Again, we continue to encourage students, parents and staff to immediately report any information that could impact the safety of others.  With your help, we can continue to provide safe schools and the best possible education for our students.

 

Sincerely,

Chris

 

Christopher J. Steinhauser
Superintendent of Schools

 

Prevención de amenazas

 

Hola, estudiantes y familias.

 

Como hemos visto en las últimas semanas, nuestras escuelas no son inmunes a las posibles amenazas que otras escuelas a nivel nacional han estado enfrentando. Agradecemos su intensificada concienciación sobre este problema y seguimos animando a todos dentro de nuestras comunidades escolares a reportar toda información o actividad sospechosa que pudiera afectar la seguridad escolar.

 

Las amenazas a nuestras escuelas no son inocentes y no son graciosas.  Le quitan recursos valiosos y tiempo a nuestro distrito escolar y a las agencias del orden público quienes trabajan con nosotros cada día para mantener nuestras escuelas seguras.  Las amenazas les provocan ansiedad a los padres de familia, los estudiantes y al personal y pueden interrumpir la importante tarea de enseñar y aprender.  Los estudiantes que hacen estas amenazas enfrentan consecuencias que perduran por mucho tiempo después de haberlas hecho.  Reiteramos la reciente declaración del Departamento de Policía de Long Beach sobre estas amenazas:

 

El jefe de policía Robert Luna dijo, “el Departamento de Policía de Long Beach toma muy en serio todas las posibles amenazas de violencia e investiga completamente todos los incidentes reportados.”   “Hacer cualquier tipo de amenaza, ya sea en persona o por internet, es ilegal y tiene consecuencias graves.” 

 

Tales consecuencias, como también hemos visto en las recientes semanas, pueden incluir suspensión, arresto y un posible procesamiento legal.  Los estudiantes que hacen amenazas, aún en forma de “broma,” pueden encontrarse rápidamente enfrentando la gama completa de estas consecuencias. 

 

Instamos a los padres de familia a platicar con sus hijos de este asunto.  A consecuencia de la pérdida sin sentido de vidas en los recientes tiroteos escolares a nivel nacional, es completamente inapropiado e inaceptable hacer estas amenazas, ni siquiera en forma de “broma.”

 

Agradecemos el apoyo de todos durante este tiempo difícil.  Seguimos animando a los estudiantes, los padres de familia y al personal a que reporten inmediatamente cualquier información que pudiera tener un impacto en la seguridad de otras personas.  Con su ayuda, podemos seguir proporcionando escuelas seguras y la mejor educación posible para nuestros estudiantes.

 

Sinceramente,

 

Chris

National Walkouts and Demonstrations

 

Hello, students and families.  The Long Beach Unified School District is aware of rumors of planned student protests and/or walkouts at some schools in response to the tragedy in Parkland, Florida.  It appears that at least three major student-led efforts are underway nationally, including on Wednesday, March 14; Saturday, March 24; and Friday, April 20.

 

Our top priority is to support the needs of our students while maintaining a safe and orderly learning environment for all. Free political expression and activity is one of the great privileges that we enjoy in this country.  It is a privilege that should be taken seriously and used in a responsible way.  Teachers and administrators here are always glad to see students become interested in any important issues facing our country, and are glad to encourage political participation by students, as long as it is done in a responsible way.  

We respect and support the right of our students to advocate for causes that are important to them and welcome the opportunity to work with any student or student group to discuss appropriate and creative ways to do so while at school. 

 

Leaving campus during school hours to participate in political activity is not a safe and responsible way to work for change.  We encourage you to talk to your children about how they may be feeling about this topic, and the importance of expressing themselves in appropriate ways at school. Students attempting to leave campus will not be held at school.  But it’s important to know that disorderly conduct that disrupts school operations is not acceptable, and our usual expectations will remain in effect.

 

The most responsible way for students to pursue political change is to stay in school during school hours and pursue their political objectives here on campus in an acceptable forum, or wait until after-school hours to participate in political activities off campus.  Opportunities for on-campus expression are being planned at all middle and high school campuses.  In addition, Long Beach will be among the cities holding demonstrations nationwide on Saturday, March 24.  The Long Beach event is planned for 10 a.m. at Bixby Park, located at 130 Cherry Ave. in Long Beach.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

 

Christopher J. Steinhauser
Superintendent of Schools

 

Huelgas y Manifestaciones Nacionales

 

Hola, estudiantes y familias.  El Distrito Escolar Unificado de Long Beach está al tanto de los rumores de planes de protestas y/o huelgas estudiantiles en algunas escuelas en respuesta a la tragedia en Parkland, Florida.  Parece ser que por lo menos tres esfuerzos dirigidos por estudiantes están en curso a nivel nacional, incluyendo el miércoles, 14 de marzo; sábado, 24 de marzo; y viernes, 20 de abril.

 

Nuestra prioridad principal es apoyar las necesidades de nuestros estudiantes mientras mantenemos un ambiente de aprendizaje seguro y ordenado para todos.  En este país uno de los privilegios principales de los que gozamos es la expresión política y actividad libre.  Es un privilegio que debería tomarse seriamente y utilizarse de una manera responsable.  Aquí los maestros y administradores siempre están contentos de ver a los estudiantes interesarse en temas importantes que nuestra nación enfrenta, y se complacen en fomentar la participación política de los estudiantes, mientras se lleve a cabo de una manera responsable.  Respetamos y apoyamos el derecho de nuestros estudiantes de abogar por causas que son importantes para ellos y apreciamos la oportunidad de trabajar con todo estudiante o grupo de estudiantes para tratar las formas apropiadas y creativas de hacerlo mientras están en la escuela.

 

El salir del plantel durante horas escolares para participar en actividad política no es una forma segura y responsable de trabajar para el cambio.  Los animamos a que platiquen con sus hijos de cómo se sienten sobre este tema y de la importancia de expresarse en formas apropiadas dentro de la escuela.  A los estudiantes que intenten salir del plantel no se les detendrá en la escuela.  Pero es importante saber que la conducta desordenada que interrumpa las operaciones escolares no es aceptable y estarán en efecto nuestras expectativas habituales.

 

La manera más responsable de que los estudiantes busquen un cambio político es permaneciendo en la escuela durante las horas escolares y buscando sus objetivos políticos aquí en el plantel a través de un foro aceptable, o esperando hasta después de las horas escolares para participar en actividades políticas fuera del plantel.  Se están planeando oportunidades para expresarse dentro del plantel para todas las escuelas intermedias y preparatorias.  Además de esto, Long Beach es una de las ciudades que llevará a cabo demostraciones a nivel nacional el sábado 24 de marzo.  El evento en Long Beach está programado para las 10:00 a.m. en el Bixby Park, ubicado en el 130 Cherry Ave. en Long Beach.


Gracias por su apoyo continuo.

Now is the time for interested 11th and 12th grade students to register for the CSULB Ethnic Studies class during the spring semester.  Space may also be available for 10th graders, however it will be dependent on the volume of 11th and 12th grade applicants.  This class is offered free to Long Beach Unified students.  The class sessions will be held at each of the comprehensive high schools:  Cabrillo, Jordan, Lakewood, Millikan, Poly and Wilson. All classes will be held on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to noon.  Classes will begin on Sept. 9 and continue until Dec. 16, 2017.   Attendance is extremely important in this college class.   If you are unable to attend more than 90 percent of the class sessions, you might reconsider registering for this class, as your grade will be negatively affected by absences.  If there is enough interest to offer the courses in the afternoon on Saturday or during the week, we will consider offering the courses at those alternative times.  However, we must have enough student interest in order to offer these additional time options.

 

Enrollment is limited to 70 students per school.  If there are more than 70 students interested per site, students will be randomly selected to participate, with 12th graders given priority.  Students who are not selected will be offered a space at another site where space is available or placed on a waiting list for the spring semester.

 

Additional classes will be available for students who have already completed a previous Ethnic Studies class and wish to take additional ethnic specific courses.  These advanced courses will be offered at sites that generate the most interest.

 

If you are interested in being considered for the spring semester CSULB Ethnic Studies class, please complete the registration form.
