From the Principal

Wonderland lawn 2 reduced

Dear Wonderland Families,

I would once again like to thank the teachers, students and parents for managing through yesterday’s lockdown calmly and efficiently. It should also be reassuring for you to know that our law enforcement and LAUSD were extremely quick to respond and take actions needed to assure the safety of the school during the incident, as well as to take measures moving forward. I would like to take a moment to share with you some of these follow up steps:

  • Immediate and Future Safeguards: As previously mentioned in Wonderland’s All Call, the situation was caused by a neighbor who was taken into custody while the school was on lockdown. I will be meeting with leadership from LAUSD and local law enforcement, on Thursday, to discuss how to prevent any future incidents with this individual, as well as other general safeguarding plans for the school. You will continue to see a stepped-up presence of LA School Police through March 30. If I am given any new information I will pass it on to you.

  • PTA Meeting/Coffee with the Principal: This Monday, March 19th, I invite you to join me at the Coffee with the Principal. The focus of this special PTA meeting will be on Campus Security. Please attend to hear the latest plans from the Safety Committee and share your thoughts on how we may improve our campus safety. Coffee with the Principal will take place on the 19th at 8:30am in the MPR.

  • Passport System/Emergency Contact Information: It is imperative that you update your emergency contact information at LAUSD’s Passport system so that we are able to reach you in an unlikely event, such as yesterday’s emergency situation.

I’d like you all to know that today was a good day at Wonderland Avenue School. The students engaged in Council and some students did meet with LAUSD professionals who were on hand to discuss yesterday’s lockdown. It was otherwise a routine day that was punctuated with fun Green Week activities.

We will continue to keep you abreast of any developments related to yesterday’s incident. In the meantime, please do not speculate or spread potential misinformation, which could make this an even more stressful situation for the community.

Please let me know if you have any immediate questions. Otherwise, I hope you will join us for Monday’s Coffee with the Principal.
