A NEW MONTHLY ADVICE COLUMN FROM OUR LIBRARIAN
QUESTION: Does the Bay Laurel Library have any books that focus on social awareness?
ANSWER: YES! Thanks to our district, our school has just received some books that are dedicated to learning about social justice. Topics such as fairness to others, acceptance of differences, and equal rights for all are told through these books. As your students read at home, we encourage you to participate in their learning from the books they choose. Even if the books are not specifically about social justice, they can learn about fairness from what the characters are experiencing. This type of thinking will help your students become more critical thinkers while also helping them to be more aware of the feelings of others.

2020 LA COUNTY ELECTIONS
USING BAY LAUREL AS A POLLING PLACE - INPUT NEEDED NOW!
As Los Angeles County prepares for the 2020 Presidential Election, exploration of polling sites and newly proposed hours are up for discussion. *THIS
INCLUDES BAY LAUREL!*

One of the major proposed changes includes having voting sites, like Bay Laurel, be open for voting for four or even eleven days! For a summary of LVUSD's position, click here . Our district staff has suggested a number of alternative site s, instead of using our schools as polling sites.

If you are opposed to our campus being used as an official polling place (thus letting countless unscreened adults on campus, for potentially more than one day), please let the LA County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk know your position on the use of Bay Laurel for voting!
