School Announcements

  • San Diego Police Foundation presents "Internet Safety"

    If your child has a phone or access to the internet, you won't want to miss this important presentation hosted at La Mesa Arts Academy for all neighboring families.  There is a morning presentation available October 30th and an evening presentation on October 25th.  Yes, the evening presentation happens to be the same evening as our school's Chipotle fundraiser.  You can get your Chipotle to go and enjoy it in the LMAAC auditorium or head to Chipotle for dinner after the presentation.   This topic is so important!  We hope everyone is able to attend.

  • Service Animals are Welcome!

    Under the ADA, service animals must be harnessed, leashed, or tethered, unless these devices interfere with the service animal’s work or the individual’s disability prevents using these devices. In that case, the individual must maintain control of the animal through voice, signal, or other effective controls. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA.  Fully Trained and Certified Service Animals as defined here are the only animals allowed on campus.

  • Early Pick-Up Policy:

    If a student is picked up at any time before the end of the school day, he/she must be picked up by the parent/guardian listed in the office computer. The ONLY exception to this rule is that a parent/guardian can send in a note (with his/her signature) stating who will be picking up their child on that specific date.

    IMPORTANT: If you want to pick up your child before the end of the school day, it must be BEFORE 2:00pm (M,W,Th,F) or 12:45pm (Tuesdays). Anyone arriving after this time will need to wait until classes are dismissed to take your child. The end of the day is a very busy time in the classroom as students pack up to go home and some classes end their day in PE, which makes it difficult to get messages to them. Thank you for understanding.

    If you have any questions about this new policy, please feel free to call the office.
