Update on De La Torre Elementary

Under orders from the Los Angeles Unified School District, De La Torre Elementary School is being evacuated today because of concerns over smoke drifting into the area from a fire in the port. The winds have shifted direction and officials deemed that school should be closed.

All students will be taken by bus to Olguin High School, which shares a site with San Pedro High School in San Pedro.
Students will be brought back to De La Torre by 1:19 p.m., where they can be picked up from school, as usual.

For parents of those in afternoon preschool and afterschool programs: all classes and activities are cancelled for the day.
