Support all of our students’ access to health care when not feeling well during school hours, with parental consent and a school nurse, while remaining in school and focusing on learning. In order for these benefits to continue, our school requires our families to opt in to receiving the services.

The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), in partnership with Hazel Health, is providing a comprehensive school-based telehealth program encompassing physical telehealth services. Please see below for additional information.
JOIN OUR TEACHERS FOR WINTER ACADEMY
As you begin to make plans for the winter break, we hope you will join us from December 18 to 20, 2023 for our Winter Academy at 3rd Street Elementary School. The Winter Academy empowers students with academic support and enrichment to amplify their performance with three extra days in the classroom. All participating students will receive extra classroom support in addition to healthy meals and fun enrichment activities designed to encourage exploration.
Please register your child(ren) using this family enrollment portal link: link: https://enroll.lausd.net/winter-academy. Portal will close on November 13, 2023.
Our own 3rd Street teachers will be assigned to work with your children this school year, so we hope your family will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity for students to deepen their learning with our teachers and staff.
