Dear Thurston families,

At the October 22nd LBUSD board meeting, the board confirmed the date of in person return of students at the secondary schools on the November 23rd date. This will also be the first day of the second trimester.  
Next week, our staff will meet and plan the final details regarding schedule logistics, upcoming webinars, and related procedures and share this information with all of our families.
Expect more detailed information about the return to campus in the coming weeks.
Go Wave Riders!

Sports Swap Nov. 7, 9am - 1pm 

This is the 12th year of Sports Swap! We will be holding the Sports Swap at a new location this year--on the Home Stadium area of the high school football field. The Sports Swap will take place on Saturday, Nov. 7, starting at 9 a.m. and ending at 1 p.m. All donations of sports gear to be sold at the Sports Swap are welcome (with the exception of helmets) and can be dropped off at the Azadian Family Home at 425 Arroyo Chico, located near the high school, or we can happily come and pick up donated gear from anyone's home. Pick-ups are done in a contactless, no-hassle manner to ensure compliance with safety guidelines. Simply text message Sports Swap Co-chair Jimmy Azadian at 818-645-9177, and he will arrange for a convenient pick-up. Any gear not sold will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club of Laguna Beach, as we do each year. All funds raised will go to the Thurston PTA and Laguna Beach High School PTA, equally. There will be gently used sports gear for sale at bargain prices, ranging from surfboards, skimboards, and SUP boards to bicycles. All sports gear donations are fully tax deductible. This is a favorite annual event the entire Laguna Beach community looks forward to each year, and we are so happy we get to continue the tradition this year.
