    Principal's Message

    April 2020

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    I want to begin by thanking you all for your understanding during this unprecedented situation impacting our Sharp Avenue Elementary school community. I also want to acknowledge our teachers transitioning to online learning and participating in several District training sessions to continue the instructional program for all our students. I also want to acknowledge or support staff for working on disinfecting all our available Chromebooks for distribution on Monday, March 30. Please also have your children continue to work on the materials the teacher gathered for your children with a one-day notice.

    As a reminder, all schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District will be closed until Monday, May 4, 2020. I will be sending you updates as they are made available and updating our website, as well. We have 10 Grab and Go centers serving food to our community from 7 am-11 am, Monday-Friday. The LDNE centers are located at; Byrd MS, East Valley HS, Fulton College Prep, Maclay MS, Panorama HS, Romer MS, San Fernando HS, Sylmar Charter HS, Van Nuys HS, & Verdugo Hills HS.

    As we continue our school closures, our teachers have been reaching out to you and the students using different programs to continue the instruction for our Sharp students. Please make sure you are in communication with your child's teacher. Teachers have been asked to select one method of communicating with the class. Please be advised that teachers have been told that as we transition to online learning, they are to continue to follow all District policies. These policies include not meeting with students individually. Please do not ask teachers to hold private sessions with your children. They will not be able to accommodate that request.

    In order to continue our learning, our teachers have tried multiple times to contact many parents and have informed me of the students they cannot contact. As we have tried calling, we have found may phone numbers are no longer valid or our calls go straight into voicemail that has not been set up or is full. If your information has changed, please email me at with your child's name, birthdate, Teacher’s name, and new contact information.

    We have been updating our website with resources for students, parents, and staff. Our Sharp Website can be found at We have added several resources on our website. Please go to Resources, then click on COVID-19 to be directed to the webpage with the information. This website also has the email addresses of all staff members listed for easy access to all our staff. We also recommend periodically checking the LAUSD website at and the Local District Northeast Website at for additional resources. Should you have any questions during this closure period, please contact Local District Northeast at 818-252-5400.
