LFCSA Co-location (TK-1)

Dear LFCSA community,
This has been an exciting year as we have been working towards growing our school to make it sustainable for all our current LFCSA families. This expansion will allow us to continue operating and providing our community with a unique, art-integrated education that focuses on the whole child.
Our LFCSA Co-location is located at:
Albion Street Elementary
We have included a map and some commute information to help you get a sense of the location and distance.
Distance between schools:
* The shortest route between our schools by car is 3.5 miles via San Fernando Road.
Typical travel times on weekdays by car:
* 7:30 a.m. & 2:30 p.m. is from 9-16 minutes
* 5:00 p.m. is from 10-18 minutes
Co-Location Update 08/01
We moved in! Our teachers and staff are busy setting up their sun filled classrooms! We are counting down the days when our new students will arrive to fill our new home with their beautiful artwork, the sounds of music and dancing feet!
Co-location Q&A
Q: Will we use the same entrance?
A: There is a separate entrance on 19th street that will be our main entrance (closer to our classrooms). Parents will be buzzed in by our office staff when they arrive at the gate. A security camera will be installed at this entrance.
Q: What spaces will we be sharing with students enrolled in Albion Elementary?
A: We will be using the same playground space, but will have completely different schedules, so that  the children will not be playing at the same time. The restrooms will be shared.
Q: When is the start an end time of LFCSA students at the co-location?
A: We are working on the bell schedule with Albion’s team, and will share that out as soon as we can.
Q: When can begin outfitting the site?
A: Parents at our first school tour gave us some great outfitting ideas that we are excited to begin working on. Our build committee will hold a meeting soon to begin planning and then we will put a call out to our whole parent/staff community to come down and begin work.
Q: How many classrooms do we have, is there a studio space?
We will have three TK/K classrooms, two studios, one office and one Special Education office.
Q: Who will be the teachers and staff at the co-location?
A: Our co-principals and specialists will be visiting our co-location daily.
We are excited to announce that our TK/K teachers will be
Ms. Mayo, Ms. Bosley and a new addition to LFCSA, Ms. Navarro.
Ms. Navarro is a seasoned multi-age teacher who is excited to join the LFCSA team. Jessica Barragan will be at the co-location office and our CAP team is currently being determined.
We have compiled many questions in this Co-location Q&A (Updated August 1st) and have attempted to answer as many as we can.  We will continue to collect questions and will update this document. Please submit your questions to https://goo.gl/forms/Hh0yhT6nIbsL3cjE2
DO NOT contact the staff at Albion. The District has its own process for informing their schools.
We look forward to working with our community to make this co-location as special as our current location!
Sincerely,
Dr. Linda Lee
Principal
