Curb Your Behavior – Improving the Safety of Pick-Up and Drop-Off

Traffic accidents are the leading cause of death for children between 5 and 14 years of age, and the LAUSD, in conjunction with other agencies, is launching a new Safe Routes To School (SRTS) yearlong campaign to build awareness of the importance of traffic safety and reinforce that everyone can be a part of the safety solution.

September’s theme is Curb Your Behavior – Improving the Safety of Pick-Up and Drop-Off. The key message is: Be patient and courteous in your school neighborhood. If you drive your children to or from school, you are responsible for their safety, and for the safety of all other students.

When driving to school for drop-off and pick-up:

  • Be patient and courteous
  • Never double park
  • Do not block crosswalks
  • Make sure your child exits and enters the car on the right side, directly onto or off of the curb.

When walking, riding, or rolling:

  • Use extra caution before entering the street
  • Obey crossing guards and follow crossing signals
  • Never enter the street from between cars

In the best interest of your child, students should stay home if they have an illness that prevents them from participating comfortably in school activities, or results in a need for care that is greater than the staff can provide.

More than a Meal

Every household receives a yellow 2018-2019 Meal Application to ensure that qualified students have access to free and/or reduced price meals and that our school receives additional, much needed funding.

Charnock needs More than a Meal applications returned from all Roadrunner families.

Register now:

The form is 100% confidential.

This form has important benefits. Completing the form can result in important resources for our school such as:

  • Free or reduced cost meals for students at our school
  • Before and after school academic and enrichment programs
  • Additional teachers so there are fewer students in a class
  • Health and wellness services, and more

Parents only need to fill out one Meal Application for the household. If you have children in different schools, you still only need to fill out and return one application.

Once you submit an application, you will receive a notice in the mail as to whether your child or children can receive free or reduced-price meals at your school.

If you know that your household will not qualify for free or reduced-price meals, please complete the form by checking the “Do not wish to apply” box, writing your student(s) name on the form, signing it and returning it. This will help prevent any further calls or requests for the form.

If your child currently receives free or reduced-price meals, the Application needs to be turned in ASAP to ensure there is no lapse in them receiving this benefit.

Last year, as a result of the support of parents, our District increased its state funding by more than $24 million over three years.

Attendance Goal: 7 Absences or Less

Please join us in reaching our goal of 96% attendance!  This means that students must have:

  • No more than one absence for every five weeks (25 instructional days) of school.

  • No more than SEVEN TOTAL absences in the entire school year.

Attending school regularly helps children feel better about school and themselves. Creating a habit of good attendance is important.  Good attendance will help children do well later in high school, college, and work.

  • Be sure to come to school every day

  • Be in the gate by 8:10 a.m.

  • Stay healthy by washing your hands, going to bed on time and eating nutritious meals

  • If your child has a doctor or dentist appointment, please bring him/her to school before or after the appointment


  • Send your child to school every day on time, starting in Kindergarten.

  • Don’t let your child miss school without a valid reason. Avoid medical appointments during the school day or vacations when school is in session.  If your child has a doctor or dentist appointment, please bring him/her to school before or after the appointment.

  • Create routines and stick to them! Make sure your child goes to bed early so that he/she will be ready to learn. Gather school clothes and supplies the night before in order to be prepared for school the next day.

  • Maintain a positive attitude about school and attendance because children are taught to value education by the adults in their lives!

Schools Continue To Be Safe Spaces for Learning

One of the top priorities of L.A. Unified continues to be creating safe spaces for learning, where all students are respected and have access to a quality education.

The District’s policies prohibit discrimination against or harassment of our students, families, or employees on the basis of actual or perceived religion, disability, nationality, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, or other protected classes.

All children in the United States have a constitutional right to equal access to a free public education, regardless of immigration status or that of their parents. L.A. Unified will continue to honor that right.

L.A. Unified does not ask for the immigration status of a student or family member for enrollment or educational purposes.
